Qualified Naturopath and Hypnotherapy
Schirin Chams-Diba is a healer, a Mystica, dancer, yogini, and pilgrim at heart. Since a young age, she has followed a distinct call to embark on a life-long journey of healing, adventure, and truth.
From a long line of Persian healers and wise women, she has trained extensively in natural medicine, healing arts, yoga, spiritual lineages, and sacred dance. After years of exploring the world, devoting herself to in-depth study, and shaping her own practice, it is her calling to share her skills in service to the Greater Good. Her skills are branches of the ‘Path of Feminine Mystics’, the ‘Medicine Women’.
Schirin has worked as a full time Naturopath, Herbalist, Flower Essence practitioner and Hypnotherapist. She holds a ‘Bachelor of Complementary Medicine’, a ‘Diploma of Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine’ as well as a Diploma in 'First Light New Zealand Flower Essences' Therapy.
One of her specialty fields includes ‘Feminine Reproductive Health’ for all stages of a woman’s life, specifically natural fertility therapy. As a NFM ( Natural Fertility Management) practitioner, Schirin had the honor to support couples in the conception of their very loved babies. She has further assisted countless women in the restoration of their reproductive health and hormonal cycles.
She has worked closely with holistic midwives for pre- & post-natal care as well as birth.
However, her practice experiences expand wide into the specific needs of people of all walks of life whom chose to consult with her.
In her two decades of clinical practice, Schirin has assisted over 100 patients with their journey towards holistic health. Schirin has designed herbal medicine formulas as well as a holistic skin care line for ‘The Herbal Dispensary’.
Furthermore, Schirin is a movement medicine and sacred feminine arts facilitator.
With her love for sacred somatics, Schirin intuited the esoteric commonalities between yoga and various dance forms, their ritualized spirit-infused moving mystery and Kundalini Shakti cultivation. The heart/womb medicine, breath connection, and body/soul wisdom woven into these practices mirror the movements of the elements, the Earth and celestial tides. In dance, she witnesses the marriage between Spirit and Form. Bringing together all these riches has led her to develop her method for ‘Essence of the Feminine™’.
For the past decade, Schirin has facilitated sacred movement medicine through feminine-aligned yoga; sacred medicine dance traditions from the Near East to India as a transformational and empowering experience; various esoteric traditions seen through the feminine lens, lunar rhythms and holistic lifestyle choices. Whether alone or in a circle of sisters, the practices serve the experience of healing beyond pain and trauma. They enhance connection, naturally arising wisdom, intuition, vitality, creativity, wholeness and joy. Women are enriched with the skill to create their own movement ritual prayers and healing practices.
She has held workshops and retreats in New Zealand, Australia, Bali, Thailand, India, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Greece, Turkey, USA, Kazakhstan and Guatemala.
My Vision & Mission
My mission is to offer a safe healing space for women of all walks of life to ‘Return to your Essence’, to come home to yourselves. Healing to illumine all parts of your gift to the World: YOU.
With the ‘Medicine of the Feminine’ , we reclaim the healing of ourselves, all who have come before us, all who are with us and those yet to come.
Rooted in the Ancient Truth of the Healing Arts of the Medicine Woman as well as integrated with contemporary Health Care Professionalism, Schirin brings you a skill set to choose from and to curate specifically to the highest healing outcome for you.
It is my vision that our lives are elevated up to their intended sanctity: for healing, ritual, dancing, singing, embodied mysticism and communion to be a way of life. For this reason, I offer my expertise as accessible tools to work within your life on a daily basis, integrate and expand with your own inner healing creatress.
Our bodies are our temples, made in the image of the great Creation vessel that pours forth from a never-ending well. Together, we become empty in order to be filled with our feminine birthright to be true to ourselves. We align with our visceral, intuitive, inherent, wise, unshakable gnosis. Our divinely orchestrated uniqueness is needed and wanted in its authenticity for the betterment of the world.
I envision us each to trace along the Creation Web of Life in its perfect patterning, aligned with the pathways of our destinies fulfilled.
I see women as leaders, healers, artists, dreamers, movers and shakers in wise leadership, as facilitators of a sacred experience. Together, we redefine your womanhood in community. We’re bringing back the healthy feminine aspect that transcends all barriers. We take up our rightful place in our co-creative, responsible, reciprocal relationship with all of life. Together, we offer up a legacy of wholeness for generations to come.
