Healing with Aoife Valley


Aoife Valley

For over 25 years I have been an independent workshop leader in the fields of nonviolence and community arts, helping people, young and old, reconnect with creativity and compassion. For 10 years I have taught body-awareness mindfulness meditation to thousands of people in groups and 1-1. More recently I have been studying body/mind healing through the nourishment and detoxification protocols of Medical Medium.

I have experienced over 20,000 hours on silent retreat in the Buddhist tradition and lived and worked in many monasteries and retreat centres. My daily meditation practice and reverence for God and Mother Earth are the ground on which I stand.

I grew up in a violent home in Northern Ireland during the war. The awareness and compassion required to heal myself from this foundation informs everything I do. In my twenties I left a Masters degree in Fine Art to move to the Donegal Gaeltacht, then travelled all around the world to diverse cultures and lands. Since then Donegal has been home: where I live a local, ecological and healthy life.

Generosity of Spirit

Dana means 'generosity of spirit' in the Buddhist tradition. It is one of the core foundations of a spiritual life.

The tradition of dana recognises our interconnectedness and is meant to strengthen community trust and personal integrity. It is important that teachers not withhold support due to financial circumstances, nor encourage people to take without giving something in return.

If you have money to give, give what you would for an equivalent 1-1 therapy or retreat, and if you do not have money to give, you are invited to give in other doable ways.

From my humble home I offer all my healing support as dana, which means that I do not put a monetary price on it. It is important that healers like me not withhold support due to financial circumstances, nor encourage people to take without giving something in return. Below is a list to help you decide the dana you will offer:

For 1-1s and reteats people generally give between €20 and €70, depending on their means. Click here to pay online, or give cash in person.
