Why Arcadia

Arcadia was a term used in ancient Greece to describe people living in the Peloponnese area. The inhabitants of this region were considered simple and pastoral, living in harmony with nature. We feel it's a name that perfectly encapsulates the feeling you have when you arrive at La Laguna Ranch, in Mezcales. We offer a refuge and sanctuary from the complexities and stresses of the modern world. We believe in the healing power of connecting with nature and that it has much to teach us.


Our aim is to create a community of like minded people, who wish to have natural healing, transformation and growth.

About Claire

I believe that life is a journey of adventure, growth and learning. When we are able to connect with our inner divinity, we are able to show up in the world as the best version of ourselves. We are able to meet life's challenges with ease and grace. 


My introduction to natural healing began when I was a teenager, I had suffered from a number of illnesses in a row: shingles, mono, kidney stones, culminating in me being diagnosed with chronic fatigue around at 19. I always believed that I could be well again so embarked on a journey of learning about natural healing and improving my diet, in a few years I had my energy back and felt healthy again.


In 2012 I decided to leave my corporate job in the city of London, in search of spiritual growth. Moved to an off grid community in rural Canada and learnt many new skills. What I treasure the most was the opportunity to connect with nature. Living in the forest I learnt to wildcraft herbs and gardening. Personal tragedy in 2017 prompted me to learn energy healing as a way to cope with the difficult emotions I was dealing with. In the practice of connecting with universal consciousness I found that I was able to release myself from many of the motional blocks I had suffered from for years. I believe the energy system is an often overlooked element of health, that can be the key healing conditions that have an unclear cause. My journey began with Reiki, training under Lindsey Rose in Victoria, Canada. Since then, I have studied with various energy schools and teachers, including Spiritual Essentials, Barbara Buck, EarthStar Academy, Don Lynch, and Allan Torres. Over time, I have honed my unique healing methods to address a wide range of conditions.


I love to express myself by creating arts and crafts. I have been a lifelong baker and worked in catering for much of my time in Canada. My goal is to help people connect to their inner power and joy.
