Holistic Journey with Animals & Mother Earth

A best friend, a teacher, a therapy dog and soul mate

A tiny fluffy black, white and tan puppy came bounding in to my heart. Having selected her from a litter of most adorable border collie pups at a farm outside of West Kilbride in North Ayrshire, I was yet unaware of the deep relationship and destiny which was to unfold between us both. I named her Yukon after the great wilderness of Canada. And indeed, she grew up to be a stunning border collie fit for the wild and breath taking mountains, rivers and lakes of the Yukon territory.

There is much said about the companionship of a dog. The term man’s best friend is known world wide and not something questioned or put much thought in to. And there are many references to the loyalty and companionship of hounds in myths and legends. I feel it is often limited to the idea of a man or woman training their dog to be trust worthy and loyal. But, I am guessing that many do not understand the sheer magnitude of such a relationship. How deep it runs through your very essence and soul and how nourishing such a companionship can be. Now, I am very aware that there are many people out there that see a dog as a worker, may be even view them as one of their machines or a means to make money. And yes, there are those that also see a dog as a baby, as a child or even as an extension of their ego or another one of their accessories. Okay, before you think I am going all judgemental, that is not my intentions but I do wish to inspire others to view the dog as an equal companion, as a soulful sentient being with just as an important destiny as what each and every one of us have. Controlling a dog will not led to a profound relationship or allow the dog to truly embarkk on their own destiny. And may be my journey with my dearest Yukon will help to open your eyes and heart to the truth that is welcoming a dog fully and openly in to your life.

About Chanting Willows

W3Schools.com

Sensitivity & Compassion for all animals


Welcome to Chanting Willows, a place of healing for animals based, at present, outside of Dalbeattie, Dumfries and Galloway where I look after a number of my own animal companions and where my partner and I strive to live in balance with nature, to live sustainably tending to vegetables, fruits and herbs and promoting eco and plastic free living. My name is Dana and I am a life long student, Lightworker, Reiki Master, Spiritual and Shamanic Animal Healer, Crystal Therapist, Holistic Animal Healing practitioner, Animal Communicator and Psychic Medium. The work I do is founded on unconditional love, high sensitivity and a spiritual connection to nature and animals while being extremely grounded, practical and down to earth. My work and development in the animal healing area has been fueled wih tons of experience. I rescue animals and build trust, heling and harmony. My work is not a non-profit charity. It is my way of life and I work soley to bring in animals who are abandoned and need rescuing and use my practices to help them. In the near future, Chanting Willows will be open for courses and animal assisted therapy sessions along with a number of healing services for animals and their guardians.

My approach is to work alongside animals in order to create harmony and develop a deeper bond between human and animal. I do not believe in harsh training and whole heartedly and with passion and conviction beleive in the kindness, geneltness, trusting approach with all animals no matter how aggressive that animal may be. Every approach will be differnet as every animal is unique. And I also believe that we all have the ability to heal both ourselves and animals by showing such things as kindness, responsibility and patience. If we allow and follow such an approach, animals help us to become the very best version of ourselves. I hope to help people with animals to open up to communications themselves and to truly listen by offering a number of courses and training.. I do not have an ego where I believe there are those with special gifts being able to intuitively communicate with animals - I believe that we all possess such abilities and I wish to help others find that so they can deepen their understanding of their animal companions.

Why is holistic animal healing & communication so beneficial for animals?


By intuitively communicating with animals, we can understand what may have happened in the past or in the present which could be causing behaviourhal problems and blocked energy system in the present. By helping to release negative attachments such as abuse or other emotions such as grief. With the use of kinesiology to help identify muscular tension and blocked energies which may be linked to a horse not being ridden properly, maybe the rider is too tense or harsh, and when a dog is being controlled on a lead in a way which causes discomfort. The use of aromatherapy helps on an emotional and physical level when the animal decides on which oil he/she likes and enjoys the aroma which enters the blood stream. Every animal is different and there are no set times in the healing process for it is up to the animal whether he/she is willing to open up, to communicate and begin to heal himself/herself. The healing work i do always has the highest good of the animal who comes to Chanting Willows, practiced with patience, unconditional love and sensitivity and also working with all concerned in the animal's life.

Just A Little More About Me


Along with continually developing in my healing path, I am also studying Herbal Medicine, Animal Anatomy and Physiology, Applied Equine Behaviour and developing in Libetry Horsemanship along with my own intuitive practice. i am also a follower of the Old Ways and am a practicising Witch and Priestess of Sacred Mists Tradition.

Along with my healing work, I enjoy trail running and Canicross with my dogs, art, writing, photography, Yin Yoga and Natural Horsemanship. I now spend my time creating a harmonious and sustainable way of life wih my animals and boyfriend, rescue and rehabilitate animals and strive to make a difference. It is my dream to help others to connect with animals, to live holistically, learn to believe in their own intuitive abilities and to have my on Animal Sanctuary where I can take in abused and troubled animals, heal and rehabilitate them and rehome, along with continually learning how to live a more spiritual, wholesome, sustainable and fulfilling life.

I have been a practicing and developing medium since 2002, attending many psychic development circles and progressed in my practice through my own spiritual growth. I have never been a stage mmedium and have only offered psychic medium readings distantly. I love being able to pass on messages from the Spirit World providing comfort to those who have loved ones who have crossed over. I particularly love to pass on messages from lovely animal companions now in Spirit as I know how devastating it is when such a time arrives. Being able to provide this service which helps people to understand that their journey does not end, rather they are on a new adventure and often have important work to do, is truly a blessing to me.

Along with animals, wildlife, Zoology, holisitc healing and metaphysics, my other love and passion is art and writing. It has been a life long dream to publish my own work, so that is always in the works with writing courses and informatiove books for animal healing.

A bridge to inner healing with the help of aniamls



Animals truly help provide so much healing and in such a profoundly deep spiritual, emotional and physical way. Although I have such a loe for animals, I love people too and know how desparately individuals are in desparate need of healing and overall collective healing of humanity. We havebecome so distant from nature and we see more and more problems linked to addictions, abuse, eating disorders and much more. It is extremely heart breaking nad the orld is in such disarray. i had challanges as a child from anorexia to diagnosis of lupus. But i had the support of animals and nature and ultimaltey an independent defiant streak which help me step out as a role of victim but instead healer, idealist and visionary. Animas truly help us return home to our true place in the world, a place of harmony and connection. And animals also teahc us so much, offer comfott but also, gives us a goal, a responsibility and a connection to the present moment. Through my animal assisted therapy I would like to reach out to children who sufer from dis-ease, to troubled youth, those finding themselves in a dark place of an eating disorder and those in the autism spectrum.
