~ Writer ~ Relaxation alchemist ~ Crafter of slow retreats and healing circles ~
Welcome wonderful you,
I fancy myself as a writer. It fuels my soul with the good stuff. And so I write. Rejuvenation Lounge (this blog) and I are best friends. We have been blessed over the years with a strong loyal following from many parts of the world. This amazes me. And, it’s because of my wonderful readers I started retreats in England and Europe. I believe in flowing where the energy takes me. Why not!
“I trust” is a mantra I use a lot when new scary horizons appear before me. I pause, breathe deeply and sink softly into their brilliant presence.
Staying close to myself is important – so I write and share about all things which have made a difference to my life helping me to pause, breathe and notice more.
I consider myself a relaxation alchemist, crafter of beautiful monthly healing circles and facilitator of delicious slow retreats (now 10 years young). All this sprinkled with a background trained in counselling, restorative yoga, meditation and energy healing.
I’m a lover of chai tea, dark organic chocolate, hula hooping, my vintage bicycle (#itswatermelon), deep rest yoga, barefoot walking, tree people, feathers, stones, dragons, shaking my booty (dance is medicine), knitting (its the new yoga) and totally addicted to oracle cards. In case you’re interested my two favourite decks at the moment are Sacred Rebel Oracle by Alana Fairchild and Oracle Of The Dragonfae by Lucy Cavendish. Both have offered profound shifts to my life. The Wild huntress for instance encouraged me to reclaim my maiden name. Wow!
I adore being a mother of 3 rocking boys. Motherhood is such a precious gift. I’ve held the space for my boys to grow and discover who they are over the past 10 years (on my own). And loved every minute of it. The easy and the difficult bits.
At the moment I’m living in sunny, warm Queensland, Australia with my three boys. Two are still teenagers.
For the past 20 years I’ve studied oodles (and I mean oodles) of different natural healing and spiritual modalities (and continue to do so). Love learning!
I’m a huge fan of vibrational medicine including flower essences, essential oils and gem elixirs. Most days you’ll find me adjusting my altar, drawing oracle cards, cleansing with sage, talking to my special stone or spraying essential oils in my sacred work space. It’s sacred because I make it so.
My lifestyle now leans more towards the Ayurvedic way of living. It simply works for my body and helps keep my mind calmer. I’m prone to having an over excitable mind that overflows at times with creativity surges – so nature is my medicine and a cup of chai tea.
I’ve studied Relax and Renew Yoga teaching with Judith Lasater, meditation and relaxation alchemy with way too many teachers to mention and have a Diploma of Counselling from Australian College of Applied Psychology.
I’ve sat in a teepee every weekend for 6 month and been taught the North American Indian way, learnt to read messages from nature, meditated for a day on Goddess Pele’s sacred volcano in Hawaii, experienced sweat lodges with Grandfathers and the list of spiritual quests and adventures goes on. I won’t bore you anymore.
Looking forward to connecting with you sometime soon.
Peace, love and chocolate,
