Awen Soul's Constellation
I’m Phoebe the creator of Awen Soul. I lived in Cambodia for 3 years in my 20’s and it was there I received my first symbolic tattoo, which synchronistically was the Awen symbol. At the time of getting this tattoo, I was feeling disconnected from myself and was going through a heart break and another layer of my spiritual awakening. This intentional tattoo supported and anchored me and was the catalyst for me to become a tattoo artist.
I was deeply touched by the sak yant tattoo ceremonies in Cambodia, the way the monks set up sacred space, bless the tattoos, and the continued prescribed tending of the symbols so that they keep flowing whatever powers you need from them into your life. With this inspiration and connecting it to my own Irish roots, my tattoo artistry aligned with who I am and for the first time I found work that brought together all the disparate aspects of my experience. I love that my tattoo skills were born in a land where the connection with ancient rituals is honoured and integral to the purpose and significance of tattooing.
My own work with my healing & reconnection journey using the elements, meditation, herbalism, angels and Spirit animals has also informed my reverence and understanding of the healing and empowerment available through ceremony.
Opening my tattoo and healing studio in Cobh in June 2021 was the pinnacle of bringing together tattooing, my Irish roots, ceremony, and the further strengthening of my true self. I support you to find your truth, heal and connect with the deeper meaning and ceremonial benefits of tattoos for transformation. I also offer Intuitive Healing sessions to help you harness your inner guidance and trust the universal law and tapestry of healing available through nature, the elements & symbolism.
Intentional community building creating a network of like minded people leading a spiritual life and supporting each other. Strengthening relational dynamics with ourselves, others and the earth. Tattooing in ceremony.
Supporting people to step into who they are and can be.
Growing up I was a sensitive, creative and artistic soul. My Mum was an artist so my creativity was nurtured and encouraged. And right alongside this was my experience of navigating the reality of ongoing abuse throughout my childhood and teen years. This was also in the context of living in Cork’s inner city Northside, where there was a lot of shadow energy.
I always felt different from others, shy, awkward and unsure of myself, very much living in my imagination. I loved reading and exploring my interests and found solace in mythology, crystals and pagan rituals even from a very young age.
I was blessed to have spent a lot of time in the countryside in my grandads summer house in Galway where I would spend hours alone in the forest, giving the trees names, picking wildflowers and making potions. I didn’t realise it back then, however I now recognise how much I was held by nature and it supported me to find the true essence of my soul. My Spiritual practices have always helped to transmute the darkness of my formative years.
