Tina Llewellyn is on a mission to create a life that fuels her body, mind, and soul. Tina is a lover of plants, horses, magic, and art, and it is through all of these facets that she has built a place where women and children can come to heal.
Horses have been the constant thread throughout Tina Llewellyn’s life. From very early childhood, they were only in dreams until she was gifted her first pony at the age of eight. She and Flagg were constant companions, whether at Pony Club or just hanging out. Broken-hearted when she literally outgrew her petite four-legged friend, Tina continued to bring horses into her life.
It was Lucinda, a sweet, red-headed Thoroughbred mare that chose Tina and became her heart horse. Together they travelled to Florida and Virginia, working for and learning about upper-level Three Day Eventing. Bringing the knowledge back home, Tina felt completely in her element. She and Lucinda won many competitions, but deep down, competing wasn’t what she loved most about horses. It was just spending time with them in the field that filled her heart.
Tina was 16 at the time and her clever and sensitive companion would mirror the sadness and pain Tina kept hidden from the world. Tina had started hanging out with an old crowd, one that she wasn’t truly comfortable with. Pressure from the group led to an incident that would affect Tina for years. Filled with shame and guilt, the event created a rift in her family, and it would be years before Tina would be able to reconnect with them.
Burying her pain, Tina channeled her energy into becoming a Farrier which gave her a way to work with horses and create with her hands. Tina apprenticed with many of the top Farriers in British Columbia, achieved Journeyman Designation, a title few women acquired, and built a successful business, Lucinda by her side.
Embarking on a healing journey, Tina studied Herbal Medicine on Salt Spring Island, working with plants and learning to listen to her own body. She was introduced to the sacred ceremony and enrolled in Shamanic Practitioner training, blending her love of Plant, Spirit, and Animals together to help others. Throughout this journey Tina rekindled her relationship with her family, coming full circle.
By 2016 the physical demands of being a Farrier had taken their toll and Tina knew it was time to move on. Wanting to continue a path of service to others, Tina became certified as a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor.
It was around this time that Tina faced her toughest moment – saying farewell to Lucinda. Her death signified an end to her past, and Spirit had something to say about Tina’s future. She was introduced to a new way of being with horses – FEEL, Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning. Training at Mystic Waters Ranch, Tina learned how to partner with horses as teachers to help others heal and grow. The journey reawakened other passions Tina had forgotten, including art.
In 2020 Tina was introduced to Intentional Creativity via a course called Artifact taught by Shiloh Sophia. It was then that she re-discovered her love of art and the way it can heal. Becoming fascinated by the way Intentional Creativity helped Tina heal herself and change the way she thought, she decided to become an Intentional Creativity Coach, which gives many tools that a person can use daily. Literally only needing a pen, paper, and a curious mind. Tina is thrilled to be able to add IC to her sessions, you don’t even need any art experience, after all, most of us haven’t drawn since we were 5 years old.
Tina also deepened her ritual knowledge in 2020 by becoming a Red Drum Leader so she may facilitate women in creating their own Red Drum. The drum is the heartbeat of the earth and red signifies the blood that is within us and our connection to our wombspace.
As an Intuitive Coach, Tina empowers women to reclaim their guiding voice to feel authentic and courageous walking in the path that is uniquely theirs. Together we will harness the magical mystery power of the natural world and creativity to get you thriving! With her handsome gelding Morgan (and Lucinda’s whispers in her ear), Tina offers individual sessions, workshops, and experiential retreats.
