Her personal and intimate life has inspired her to dig into the shadows of both her mother's and father's lineages, reaching back through the Reindeer Clan, Siberia, and Mongolia! These arose profoundly during three years of apprenticing to the teachings of Sweat Lodges and continue to emerge at crucial stages of her life's journey.

The Dharma Centre of Canada initiated Ms. Saarinen into The Medicine Buddha, the Tibetan Buddhist centre for all REIKI training. As well, she entered into empowerment from all five lines of lineages as well as steeping deeply into these mantras suttas suttras and sadhanas.

In 2008, Kaariina was requested to initiate Council of Great Spirit for youth and eventually, the group grew from 14 to 40 some youth, most with a yearning for the education of the soul and of great spirit! Many are now in service to the medicine path and commonly share photos of relationships. vision quests in exotic and far away locations, as well as babies from the stars!

That same year, she moved to Carp Ridge Ecowellness Centre, Lanark Ontario and became immersed in the principles of naturopathy, biodiverse gardening, and supervising woofers who detoxed through gardening, way of the family council, organic foods, infrared saunas, REIKI treatments and training.

In 2009, she was diagnosed with lymphoma and simultaneously received funds from her mother's estate which was invested in 3 intensive months of natural healings:

*Gersons cure
*Anne Wigmore's sprouting and juicing protocols
*Advanced eft training
*Shamanic rituals and rites of passage
*sacred fire community in California and healings with traditional shamans

Upon returning to Lanark, Kaariina received the images indicating that the signature had been reversed! A tribute to the Mother Line and her willingness to PERSEVERE!

A firm believer in RETREATS, Kaariina has gone into 4 3 month retreats in order to examine and exorcise ancient core wounds from both Mothers and Fathers lineages.

She was gifted with ayahuasca in 2008, a path that opened up into other experiences with the spirit of the medicine plants. Now several iboga providers, for instance, have come through sacred fire tending with her Golden Reindeer Moon Lodges on the banks of the Cheakamus River BC!

Along with several other anam caras, spirit sisters, this Turquoise Heart has facilitated: Return to Feminine Wisdom (Peru and Bolivia), Sacred Wombs (Costa Rica), Sacred Wombs (Italy) with a strong intention of holding safe spaces for women's recovery from generational sexual abuse as well as reclaiming women's inherent wealth and capacities for resilience!

A Moon Dancer in the Puriscal Costa Rica collective, Kaariina served four years as one of 7 abuela's, and is now an obsidian pipe carrier, sweat lodge chief, ceremonialist who is capacitated to maintain the frequency of the ONENESS for all who come to share! Her Travels with the Grandmother Bundle, across Canada and in 6 countries, has cocreated a universal path of integrity for those who say YES to LIFE

This Grandmother of the Turquoise Heart is passionate about weaving beings into an interconnected and greater cosmology: an evolutionary Creation myth for women and men who arrive at Thresholds, ready for Rites of Passages and initiations. Grandmother's offerings are advocations for stepping through the known into the Great Mystery.

Mother of two ancient master adults, grandmother of three reincarnates, her shamanic tradition holds clients, students, and apprentices as well as retreatants in unconditional loving light. All are FAMILY! Freedom and responsibility for one's perception and lived experiences are outcomes.
