About

I am a seeker by nature, gathering many gems and golden nuggets along the way in self development and spiritual fields. I have amalgamated teachings from various journeys, including psychology, self-development, shamanism, mysticism, yoga, tantra, qi gong, meditation, vibrational sound, body-work, breath-work, astrology, imagination and above all else, personal experience and wisdom.

By weaving the beautiful golden thread that runs through them all, I have created a wellbeing and discovery pathway. It’s a great way to declutter the mind and body allowing energy to flow; opening space for creativity, bliss and abundance.

I believe in following your bliss and by being aware of your soul story; this is what transforms life’s black and white canvas to become vibrantly colourful dancing with harmonies…

 

‘The world appears a wonderous paradise. A new form and new beauty will appear. Each moment; weariness will disappear. I see the world as something full of bounty, with springs that keep on gushing water strongly; Their waters’ noises reach my ear – I find myself drunk and lose my wits and mind: Like worshippers the branches are all dancing; Like minstrels all the leaves on them are clapping.’ 

Rumi
