Gabriela Ariana

My name is Gabriela Ariana. I am the mother of two girls and a boy. I am an ecological artist, body therapist, eko-somatics practitioner, dance and music artist and an ancestral tradition holder and teacher.

Nature is my master, my power place, the strength of my body and my soul. Nature is the physical manifestation of my ancestors, my support, every day, every instant. Nature is all over: it is under the asphalt, between the buildings, up on the sky. Nature is also this body where I live. Nature is my home.

I grew up in Chile. I lived since I was born during difficult times in the atmosphere a militar dictature that last 17 years. I am thankful for having by my side the right people to guide me towards an experience of life further on and over this horror times. The experiences of my childhood open in me, at very early age, a worldview and a soul’s meaning that are present constantly in my work and in each moment of my life.

Traveling for many years through different countries to keep up my career as a dancer makes me understand that our society is in a great need of the legacy of our ancestors, the experience of nature and the understanding of the wheel of life. Ancient medicine and wisdom is a legacy for all of us. The same wisdom has been manifested in almost all ancients cultures in the world and it has been in almost all of them denied or just forgotten. I believe that this ancient wisdom is more necessary than ever in order to save our nature and humanity and to be able to co-create a sustainable life for everybody.

I moved to Finland in the year 2000 and from then I got interest in learning also about Finnish ancient wisdom. This and connecting to nature were my way to immigrate to this country. In 2012 I began my studies with the Finnish shamans Susanna Aarnio and Johannes Setälä, at the Center of Finno-ugric shamanism, now days Johannes Setälä’s center.

I see the world, the situations between human beings, the racism, the poorness, the societies inhumanity, the nature’s tearing down, the lack of equality and it fires up my deepest passion and mission in life which is to do the best I can to bring us back to nature, back to the body, help us to heal old wounds, to recover the meaning of humanness and the basic importance of community and nature for our survival.

Through my work I help, encourage and guide others to connect with theirselves as the body/soul nature we are. Finding this connection and getting to experience it and understand it, opens something in human beings that nothing else can open.

Through our bodies we find the keys for healing and empowering not only our selves but also everything that surround us, including other people and the nature around. The nature in us, when rised up, gives as the answers and the courage we need to walk an authentic own path, in our own rhythm, following our very own truth.

I share this worldview through my art, as a therapist and also by offering workshops, courses, trainings, retreats, lectures, couching and mentoring.

I have been on this path over 23 years and I feel that my passion, love and authentic vocation has no limits. Roots to empower your nature is the best I can wish to anyone.
