Ayanna Raiha, BA (Education)

Ayanna Raiha
Ayanna Raiha

My name is Ayanna Raiha and I am teaching the course in Norse Mythology and Runology. Born and grown up in a small village in the eastern part of Germany, I came to Ireland in 2003. Here in Ireland I started to embrace a holistic lifestyle, studied to become a Reiki Master, Diet-Nutritionist and Shamanic practitioner.

The training I received in Core shamanism, Celtic and Peruvian shamanic techniques, as well as the Advanced Shamanic training here in Green Tara College, have all been life changing for me and helped me to heal and embrace myself on a deeper level. As part of the shamanic training, the connection to the ancestors, their wisdom and messages are very important. In my case this connection had been stirring inside me, waiting to be acknowledged and awakened. When I first embraced the Runes and the ancient knowledge in Norse Mythology, it was not like studying a new subject, but rather awakening something which had been sleeping inside me. From that moment, approximately 4 years ago, I have been embracing the wisdom of the Runes and using them daily in my life as advisers and guides and for healing and protection.

I would like to share this knowledge with others – people who would like to know more about the Runes. It does not matter if you are interested in receiving just a general introduction, want to use them for your own growth or as a first step for further study in Runology. This course is structured to facilitate all of these and I would be delighted to welcome you and share my knowledge.

Eileen Smyth

Eileen Smyth

Eileen has been practicing aromatherapy since 2014.  She is deeply passionate about aromatherapy, the healing properties of essential oils and how they can enhance peoples lives.

Eileen’s interest stems from her childhood passion of aromas. She noticed that when walking in the forests, being beside the lakes and fields, the aromas of nature improved her well-being.  A walk in the forest with the aromas, especially pine, would uplift the mood, revitalizing the senses and, as she often says, healing, mind, body and soul.  She truly believes aromas help to transform moods and assist the healing process.

Her passion was reawakened in 2013 when she was challenged with life-changing circumstances and she became fully immersed in aromatherapy as a healing journey. Eileen joined Green Tara as a student and became fully qualified by taking the ITEC Aromatherapy Diploma, as well as Reiki, Anatomy and Physiology, Indian Head Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Energy Management and the Teacher Diploma.  It was during this process that Eileen decided she was going to teach Aromatherapy and was delighted to be given the opportunity at Green Tara, which has been a huge part of her Aromatherapy journey.

Eileen loves to keep exploring and developing, keeping her passion alive by working at home experimenting with the oils to create healing balms, creams, massage oils and aromas to compliment healing.  Eileen loves to do nothing other than explain the synergy of gifts of nature and how they impart their therapeutic values.  She loves to encourage people to follow their passion and share her knowledge and empower and inspire students to achieve their full potential.
