I'm Jennifer

My background is as eclectic as my soul. I am a creator, artist, Maiden, Mother, and Crone, living in rhythm with the seasons of nature and time.

 

My reverence with Mother Earth began early in my childhood with long walks with my Grandfather in the Wissahickon Park in Philadelphia, and the love of my first cat – Midnight. I have always been inspired by nature; playing in the mud, swimming in the ocean, long walks in forests engaging with the tress and animals that call the forest home. Nature teaches us how to live with grace and change with the seasons if we allow ourselves to be open to her lessons.

 

I have always been an artist, creating from sticks and stones, painting, drawing and sculpting with any and every material I could get my hands on. I would spend endless hours with my materials, my cat, and my thoughts, working through the aesthetic twists and turns of the creative process. 

 

My adult years began with a Fine Arts degree in Ceramics. I relished in spending every moment embraced by the soothing feel of the clay and warmth of the kiln firing. As events in my life shifted, I became an Art Teacher, (a profession I loved for many years), sharing my love for clay with young creative minds.

 

During my teaching career I began studying Massage Therapy, Aromatherapy, Yoga and Ayurveda. By incorporating my knowledge of these systems, along with the wisdom and gifts from nature, I designed practices and created products to assist in the healing of all those who came to me. I've worked with clients living with chronic pain, health concerns and terminal disease. I found great joy in creating customized essential oils and lotions, to aid my clients in their healing process and for many, sadly their end-of-life care.

 

As my practices progressed, and my personal life went through major changes, I realized it was time for me to truly embrace the Old Ways of my Celtic and Hebrew background. An eternal alchemist - learning, experimenting, combining, and transforming has now brought to fruition a vision that has been years in the making. Through all of the experiences and adventures of my gypsy spirit, in a universe of unlimited possibilities; I am proud to bring you A’lainn Cottage. 

Blessed Be,

 

Jennifer Waldner
