About

img_0479Shando Varda

I live close to Nature and teach, among other things …… Nature Connection, Non Verbal Communication with Nature, Earthing, Play especially Nature connection games, Medicine Wheel, Opening the Centre, Live Earth and Becoming Native.

I do this through simple practical demonstrations and exercises and through creating situations that allows the Earth to teach individuals directly. The core skill in all of this is …..listening.

From a lifetime of living in Nature with my ear close to the ground, simple ways and understandings have tumbled into my lap. It is my endless delight and honour to share these.

I am founder and director of the Live Earth Trust, which is a charity which buys land and gives it back to mother Earth, creating reserves of land for the wild. The charity also seeks to bring new social and cultural patterns to communities.

Through Live Earth and Becoming Native i hope to help create new earth based culture that puts the Earth in the centre.

I lead a travelling life that takes me deep into Nature.

My name is Angharad Emma Varda and I am passionate about rewilding land and people, Earth connection, mentoring, dreaming and dancing. I have travelled the Earth widely learning about Native ways and shamanism. I now live a nomadic life on the road with my family.

I created the Becoming Native Project to help people explore, deepen and understand their connectedness to the Earth and the Cosmos and how to live this with authenticity.   Rewilding ourselves is a journey, a coming home to our Natural Self. I seek to bring ways of seeing, knowing, connecting and merging with the natural world to others.

I co-created and am still developing the Native Learning Wheel which I use at home with our daughters.

My deepening path has now brought me to the understanding of the need to be with our daughters as they journey to womanhood and to create lodges for them. Weaving a bundle of teachings, ceremonies, stories, drum journeys and meditations; i bring Becoming Native to girls and also to the women.
