About Dreaming With Wolves
Meet The Facilitator
Yelena Calavera Vorster
Yelena is a writer, environmental scientist, and facilitator living in London, United Kingdom. She began telling stories in childhood and went on to write for various major publications and to publish her stories through indie publishers and under her own publishing imprint. Her journey as a storyteller led her to work with organisations to deliver large learning programmes and she was involved in touching the lives of more than 4000 learners across Africa.
She first traveled to the Husky Romi Wolf Sanctuary in 2014, searching for a meaningful soul connection to the wolves. Over the following years she visited the sanctuary often, bringing friends and relatives along to meet the wolves in the hope of sharing her passion for and desire to protect wolves, and to promote the conservation work done by Husky Romi. In 2015 her husband proposed to her with the help of one of the wolves, further strengthening her family ties to the space.
In early 2017 Yelena designed and developed Dreaming With Wolves and delivered her first workshop to the public, drawing on her experience as a learning and development professional, project manager, writer, facilitator and shaman's apprentice.
