I was born in Africa and grew up on a farm, since then I have had a diverse and rich journey living in 7 different countries with a variety of careers. I truly feel that planet earth is my home, without any division or borders. I have recently completed an eco house build project in Ubud, Bali, which is now my home base to return to and replenish. I have had numerous lives within this one, including working in London as an administrator, then California first in administration, then technology support and teaching in the IT industry, systems analysis and development, database design, sales, product marketing, and also management. In New Zealand I started out in a high paying high profile IT job, until my own spiritual emergence propelled my journey in a different direction. I became engaged in a land based community living a sustainable and permaculture life style within a committed relationship. I endeavoured to co-create community farms and gardens and I developed a sustainable business based on growing lavender essential oil, and organic skin care, I co-built an eco house, co-managed a large sustainable food, herb garden of about an acre in size including an orchard, taught permaculture, and was an alchemist in the kitchen and an artist in my spare time. As my own healing kicked in I began to guide and teach others. I love adventures. I am the founder and creator of the Embody Truth method for self realisation through integration and healing.
My own journey with healing began in 1991, with a spiritual emergence, and subsequently a variety of resulting health issues. I explored a vast and numerous array of healing methods and recovered from chronic fatigue, PTSD, multiple chemical sensitivities, neuralgia, migraine, allergies and a whole host of other complaints. The nature of much of my trauma was pre-conscious implicit memories, and this is an area I have studied, and explored deeply. It includes transpersonal, ancestral and collective energy fields. However, while what I studied inspired my journey, and my journey inspired what I studied… nothing I ever knew healed anything. I found that true healing requires an ability to discern what we are responsible for and surrender into ‘not knowing’, without a guaranteed outcome. Living this way, is freedom, as we surrender any sense of identity to become nothing, which is everything concurrently inviting a more real experience of life and a willingness to feel vulnerable.
Embody Truth is my unique expression and the culmination of my life’s journey, into a state of coherence. It is my raison d’être and my joy to share it. It offers deep healing and realignment and naturally creates a soul tribe. As it evolved I came to realise what was missing from Healing and Spirituality. I found trauma healing generally to be powerful and yet limited as it was held within a framework of duality. I found spiritual teachings not specific enough in the how-to methodology of realisation and often limited to a masculine approach of attaining a state of non-duality (I am) and somehow ignoring life, movement and the dynamic engagement in vulnerability; a more feminine approach. I feel this body of work is a unique and balanced approach which is a necessary part of the evolutionary shift we are all being called into.
WORK WITH ME
There are a variety of ways we can journey together including; personal one-on-one sessions, workshops, online programs, online group support program by subscription, and self retreat style customised programs tailored to you if you visit me while I’m in residence in Bali. Get in touch to discuss your needs. Each method has its merits and as you enter this work, you can join an online support group to continue to learn, practice and get the support you need. My interest is supporting this work to become part of your life, so life itself provides the healing… in a living life workshop experience.
Once or twice a year I invite you to share Sacred Journeys to ancient and sacred places which support us to remember what we lost there. So far there have been 3 journeys in France and recently one in Egypt.
I enjoy sharing and guiding in an inspirational and experimental way and available gatherings to introduce the work or just inspire others on any topic. I have taught in New Zealand, Australia, Germany, France, Sweden, Indonesia and Italy. You can contact me directly to explore possibilities at firstname.lastname@example.org
