Hello and thank you for visiting my website. Now for a little background to me, Fiona McLaren (click on image to expand the view). It has been quite a journey to get to this point, with many highs, some lows and much laughter along the way. I can, however, say I am so grateful for all the learnings, the amazing people I have met along the way and I absolutely love what I do, every bit of it.
Having spent my working life in an office I embarked on some radical change in 1997. I initially started my Shiatsu training in Bangor and in 1998 switched to the 3 year year diploma course with the Glasgow School of Shiatsu. This gave me such a good grounding and allowed me to understand and let go of a lot of things.
In 2002 I quit my job of 17 years, sold my house, sold or gave away most of my possessions and moved nearly 200 miles away. Whilst up in the Highlands I went through a lot of changes and personal development. Studying Reiki to Master level and starting my Sacred Sound Therapy course in Shipley (9hr drive!… and so worth it).
Midway through the course my journey took on my travels to Glasgow. Later in 2005 I qualified as a Sacred Sound therapist and created SoundJourney™. This then extended my work from 1-2-1 therapies to also offering workshops. I also started a djembe drumming class for beginners and facilitated workshops with various organisations e.g. Women’s Aid, Key Housing, Breast Cancer Care, BAE System Surface Ships and the Scottish Prison Service.
I moved twice more and became re-acquainted with runes before coming back to Fife where I continued with my therapies and djembe drumming. As I began discovering the wider aspects of runes I started using pyrography to burn my own runes sets and talismans. This led to me making pyrography plaques and due to increasing interest, creating Pyrografi.
Throughout all of the above I have always enjoyed landscape, animal, trees, flowers and candid photography and often received compliments on how I frame a picture. So in 2015 I furthered my knowledge by obtaining my Foundation Diploma in Photography and upgrading my camera.
Please have a look around my website for lots more information and payment for products, therapies or a runes reading can be made in my shop.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
Best wishes – Fiona
