"I love the power of a circle of like-minded people coming together, it appears that now, more than ever, we need to be supporting and encourging each other, to come out and let our true selves shine.
You see, I have always felt very different growing up, my natural way of being in the world seemed to be at loggerheads with many of the 'other people' out in the world. Highly sensitive to energy and spirit and with healing gifts that I inherited from my Dad, it was a long process to finally accept that what made me different was something to celebrate, rather than hide away.
Through my own personal health battle with ME, Chronic Fatigue sydrome for over 5 years, my creative and spiritual path took me ever closer, to reclaiming my authentic self and to learn to feel more comfortable in my own skin. I have learnt to love the complexity of the human condition, to try and accept both the light and dark, in myself and others. I believe we were not born to be perfect, we were born to be perfectly alive, to share ourselves fully, to accept ourselves completely. From a place of non-judgement...true freedom can be found .
I have felt called to work with others, to be a hollow bone, to allow the spiritual support that has greatly helped me in my life, guide me to how I can be of service today. Drawing on my own life-experiences/professional training and spiritual guidance - I aim to create workshops that take people on a high vibrational journey, to a place of wholeness, inner joy and deep peace. A journey that ultimately helps strengthen their connection to their own unique life spark.
