Tessa Ashbury-Taylor
As an ordained Minister of” Church of the Earth”, Tessa
Ashbury-Taylor, Whirlwind Dreamer, is fully committed to sharing her
gifts and skills with community.
A multitude of life experiences, certified training in healing modalities, life counsel, earth-based spirituality, dreams and journey work have intricately woven themselves to produce the path she now walks upon. Her journey has been blessed by the initiations of
respected indigenous elders (including Grandmother Robin Youngblood)
and impeccable teachers who have walked by her side for over 2
decades. It is through their gracious sharing and her deep commitment
to her practice for self and community, that she can share and teach
in the way in which she does.
The sacred element of Water has always been a powerful conduit for
Tessa, deepening the connection to the world of Spirit and Universal
wisdom. This is evident in her offerings to community-that of Water
ceremonies, Baptisms, Sweatlodge, Moon and Sister circles, Communing
with the Sacred World of the Water Spirits, Divination and Life
Counsel. Her capacity is expanded through working in, through and with
Dreams. Guidance received from these parallel realms has and continues
to greatly assist community with navigating the terrain of the present
moment.
Community projects close to her heart are centered on working with
the traditional craft skills of women in impoverished communities. Most of the
women in these communities find not only solace but also expressive
voice in their needlework. With Tessa’s guidance, they merge as a
community sharing laughter and stories amidst all the hardship and
strife they may endure in their personal lives. Across the barrier of
language, these women connect in prayer filled creative expression.
Through their hands, they stitch and weave tales of beauty and freedom
as they earn to support their families. These items express
individuality and are made with love and lots of laughter and prayer
in an ethical environment.

Tessa, Whirlwind Dreamer, will be accepting students on her “Wisdom of
Dreams and Sacred Waters” 9-month course by the end of 2021 and can be
contacted for distance healing, divination and counsel on
