Ariana Ayu is a Transformational Mystic and a Catalyst for Conscious Change.
Ariana became a professional Healer in 2000 and has been certified in a wide variety of modalities including: bio-field healing (Reiki, Reconnective Healing, Matrix Energetics, and more), hypnotherapy with a specialty in Past Life regression and Life Between Lives regression hypnotherapy (taught by Dr. Michael Newton, may he be enjoying the “between”), Deep Memory Process and Ancestral Healing (with the late great Roger Woolger, may he rest peacefully and/or be enjoying whatever he’s doing now), and plant medicine (aromatherapy, flower essences, and cannabis therapeutics).
She was initially Ordained as a Priestess in Costa Rica in March, 2005, recommitted to her spiritual calling when she emerged as a Shamanic Magdalene High Priestess in 2013, and most recently was re-ordained through the Temple of Ascension in 2018. Ariana has studied ancient and modern wisdom from a wide variety of cultures and spiritual traditions. She’s done a wide variety of sacred travel, including Earth-grid work with Drunvalo Melchizadek in Easter Island and Moorea, ceremonies in the arms of the Sphinx and inside Egyptian pyramids with Nicki Scully and Star Wolf, studied Hermetic Wisdom and Alchemy with Raven Sinclaire, and has spent a great deal of time communing with stone circles in Ireland (since 2003) and Scotland (since 2009). Her most constant journey has been an inner one; always seeking to understand her inner workings and evolve into a more authentic expression of her soul’s purpose on Earth.
Ariana became licensed as a Registered Nurse in 2008 due to a desire to understand the body (and our healthcare system) in a deeper way than she had before as a healer. She earned her Masters Degree in Advancing Nursing Practice from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, UK in 2010 and her dissertation was entitled “Researching Complex Interventions and Holistic Biofield Therapies: A Proposed Phenomenological Study of Reiki“and can be viewed/ downloaded by clicking the title.
In 2012, after seeking an approach to nursing that was more closely aligned with her holistic philosophy, Ariana completed the 9-month Integrative Nurse Coach training from the Integrative Nurse Coach Association (Cohort #2), followed by the Holistic Health Coach training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (a year-long course whose content included over 100 different dietary theories). In 2020, she completed the 6-month Cannabis Nursing certification program through Pacific College of Health Sciences.
In 2021, after opening her CannyNurse® Certificate Program program to the nurses around the world, Ariana was deeply honored to be voted Entrepreneur of the Year by the Cannabis Nurses Network. Her students had these things to say about Ariana and her program:
“Ariana is the creator and course faculty of the CannyNurse™ Certificate Program. As a graduate of the first cohort in August 2021, I am honored to nominate Mrs. Ayu for Educator of the Year with Cannabis Nurse Network. Ariana has truly created a course on the cutting edge of clinical cannabis care. Ariana Ayu is an excellent educator and her passion for cannabis education is infectious. She has created a cannabis nurse certificate program that allows the graduate to confidently advise safe and effective use of cannabis with their patients. Her commitment to social justice in the cannabis space was greatly appreciated. Mrs. Ayu has set the bar high for comprehensive cannabis education programs.”
