Nourishment For Mind Body & Soul
Welcome and thank you for visiting my website
My name is Peace Ravenwood and my life is one of devotional service to all life on this glorious planet, our Great Mother.
Sometimes I feel it has taken many lifetimes to reach this point, sometimes I feel that this has happened so quickly, such is the way time works, maybe you are here because you feel the same?
I, like so many of us, am walking an amazing and magical path of discovery that continues to humble me each and every day with such beauty and joy.
I am in love with this life and, as I have discovered so much in the recent years, wish to offer YOU the time and Sacred Space you wish to find out just how much we can become when we choose to reconnect with the truth of all life. more of that later because it is awesome!
So, who am I and what do I offer?
I’m an ‘almost 50’ Wild Medicine Woman, finding my way through the perimenopause completely naturally and, quite simply, a Badass Spiritual Gangsta who often swears quite a bit whilst also speaking like an Ethereal Faery Goddess, because of course, I AM!
I’ve spent the last 7 years changing pretty much my entire life from what it was:, totally self destructive, caught up in eating disorders, food addictions, low self esteem, poor and failing health on all levels. A real re-birthing, inside out!
Since this change began, I’ve seen and done pretty much tons of deep inner shizzle and it keeps on getting deeper I can tell you. a lot of what I have experienced has not been particularly comfortable, big changes are meant to push our asses out of our comfort zones and heck, it has!
Living with the attitude of gratitude though sure makes it so worth it.
I’ve always had a deep connection with nature and been blessed to have spent most of my adulting life surrounded by wild places, immersed in Her bounty.
All of what I offer comes back to our connection with Her, Her breath, Her body, Her whole being.
From the food She provides that nourishes our own bodies, to walking upon Her in the most Sacred way possible. In turn this of course nourishes our minds and souls bringing us no end of awesome benefits.
I’m a totally rocking Certifed Raw Chef who had the pleasure of training with Elaina Love at her Pure Joy Culinary Academy over in Bali – a life changing experience by far!
I also trained with Amy Levin on one of her stupendous Advanced Raw Chocolate classes, and studied David Avocado Wolfes Nutritional Diploma waaaaay back when I got onto this health train.
Currently, because I am kinda loving to learn, as we all are, I am studying Naturopathic Nutrition and with Dr Robert Morse to certify as a Detoxification Specialist…BAM!
That takes care of all the foodie feastings side of things pretty well…
The Wld Druid and I have lived in some lovely rural spaces in the 13 years we have traveled with each other, going from house to caravan, to yurt then cottages on Lord Northampton’s estate, a mountain hideaway in Pembrokeshire and back to rural life in Buckinghamshire, we are in yet another transitional move, this time up to my birth place of Lancashire!
We are going back into living small scale once more, much awaited and longed for (I have been sick of all the stuff we have gathered for so long now).
So, from having a huge veggie plot to tend we are very much excited to garden in containers again, focusing on herbs for healing and blooms for Spiritual Bathing during our Red Tents. I’ve managed to gain the use of a small shady space in the site garden to grow some shade loving leafy greens too!
As amain part of us relocating, I once again have space in which to offer a cuppa when the need arises, a hug when ever one is in need and many many circles and massages!
So, as part of all the above, I am SO happy to offer not only regular structured classes in the ‘how do I’s” of living a life based around eating leaves, nuts, chocolate (YEAH) and fruity rooty goodness (Check out the event schedule bit for those)
I also LOVE offering 1-1 tailored sessions and retreats, so that you and I can dig in DEEP and shift what needs shifting and welcome in all the goodness just waiting for you to say YES!
I offer this work in a totally intuitive way, inviting my Guides to bring in what is required in any one moment and it is always perfect, that has been made clear time and time again.
When you come into a place of stillness and quiet you can really hear and get clarity pretty much instantly – that is the simple beauty of working this way.
So, when working with me you will find a lot of laughter and humour – because let’s face it, the big world out there kinda has a lot of shit that sucks doesn’ it?
We work to clear some of that shit we take on as our own (well all of it to be fair) and get into the juicy, rocking, awsome life that we came here to have. We do a lot of this in such a quiet and gentle way, eat a lot of seriously good food, not to mention, get our hands, feet and other body parts deep into the earth, bring in the plant teachers to assist us, AND there is ALWAYS chocolate.
There is acutally SO much that we can bring in here that makes our lives phenomenal, that I will write a bullet list of ‘services’ soon so you can cut through all these words.
I have such gratitude for being able to also offer two modalities of bodywork as part of my practice, that really are beyond words of amazingness:

❤ Arvigo ® Techniques Of Maya Abdominal Therapy

Peace you are an inspiration. You have taught me so much about eating, living & healing naturally. You make plant medicine, herbs, sacred cacao, raw vegan food all so interesting & accessible. Your heart-felt passion & connection with Mother Earth & the sacred is felt deeply through your work & offerings.
Each Cacao Ceremony I have attended has been life changing – you hold a gentle nurturing space for others that is so needed at this time. Your chocolate is more than it seems, it truly is a medicine, a healing tool to open & awaken.
I love how you are weaving your path & sharing your daily wisdom to inspire others. You truly are walking the authentic path of sacred medicine weaver. I have so much gratitude for your beautiful presence & the sacred you support us in remembering. Thank you.
I have known Peace for many years and she is a wonderful soul, not just in the kitchen (have you seen her creations?!) but outside of it too. She has a real love for our planet and it’s inhabitants and feeds us with all good loving vibes and gorgeous food. We are all better off for her presence in the world. I have been very blessed for sure, to have had her presence in my life. Everyone should have a piece of Peace.
This post comes with a kind of warning. It’s a LONG one, so make a brew and maybe bring some snacks! What I share here is from a deeply personal soul place, these words are my way of flowing through from a place of heart breaking silence of sorts about my life so far as […]
Artemisia Vulgaris, common name Mugwort, is a pretty common wild plant, seen along the roadsides showing his glossy serrated leaves, flashes of his silvery belly as the breeze ruffles them. For me, Mugwort is one of the Master Sacrament plants that I work with a great deal of the time. I’ve mentioned Master Sacraments a […]
It’s Sunday afternoon as I sit here and write this for you. I often get stuck on the title for these offerings, which can lead to a bit of writers block! Once the Title is there the words flow more fluidly, just getting over that first way of wording what has already been mulling round […]
Since the very early days of my workings with chocolate I’ve found a deep sense personal expression and expansion which has led me on such an amazing journey and becoming a totally different person now to who I used to be. I can look back on my life and honestly say that I’m in a […]
