Arts at Awentree
Winifred recalls being open to the Unseen World from her early childhood and was fortunate to have parents who encouraged her intuition and self exploration as she grew up. The daughter of first-generation Irish- and Italian-Americans, she was raised in a passionate, loving home where her curiosity, creativity, and spirituality were nurtured.
Winifred’s love of the natural world was cultivated as a teenager while traveling to remote areas of Ontario during summer vacations. She is an avid outdoor enthusiast with experience as a long-distance wilderness backpacker, as well as a daily practice of local hiking and organic gardening. She cherishes her time outside, connecting to the Spirit of the Land and Sacred Source. Winifred is drawn to exploring sacred sites and has traveled to Ireland, Spain, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia and to many of the National Forests/Parks in the United States.
Spirituality is perennially woven into the fabric of Winifred’s Path. She has more than 20 years of direct experience and knowledge in Paganism, Wicca, Goddess Traditions, Sacred Dance, Reiki, and Tarot. Her interest in American Indian Spiritual Traditions has led her to learn about their history and culture. Embracing the divine ability for all beings to connect to Sacred Source, she empowers others to find and listen to their inner voices, and to participate in the Sacred Traditions that honor life.
AwenTree is the manifestation of a lifelong dream to create a sustainable business that celebrates spiritually-inspired living, honors Sacred Traditions, in particular Pagan and Earth-based Paths, and encourages healing and transformation for all beings and the Earth.
Winifred is a NGH Certified Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master Teacher (since 1997), and served as Board Member to COVR (Coalition of Visionary Resources) in 2008. She is one of the original founders and current proprietress of AwenTree.
