Hello and welcome,

I am a lover and learner of Slow Living. Words. Earth Medicine. Nature. Ritual. Ancient Remedies and Tea. Always tea.

I am a qualified counsellor. Deep rest yoga practitioner. Body breath therapist. Energy healer. 

I support women who feel disconnected, are exhausted, stressed, overwhelmed, recovering from health issues, moving through a life major transition, or simply wishing to have a more meaningful connection with their body, breath, sense of self, intuition or the subtler realms around us.

For over 15 years I’ve been teaching and crafting Slow Rest retreats for woman around the world. I offer a unique fusion of gentle seated body awareness movements, deep rest yoga shapes, therapeutic body breath practices, restorative rituals, ancient clearing and protection tools and guided releasing meditations.

I was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1958. I am a mother of 3 grown boys. I happily raised them on my own. Being a mother is my greatest joy. The transition through empty nest though is not an easy one for me.  I miss them. It still hurts.

An oracle deck (or two), essential oils, a good book, tea and my journal are never far from my side.

I’m a life learner and continue to explore and learn ancient ways, folklore remedies, breath wisdom and earth medicine.   I believe everything is energy and there is much to be explored and appreciated in the subtler realms of the world around us. 

My blog posts are all about helping you be your own medicine one pause, one breath and one healing ritual a time.  I share small do-able rituals that I’m trusting are easily accessible for you amongst the busyness of daily life.

My little book Collecting Rituals is out late 2019. 

Thank you for reading all the way down to here. Bless. Who knows we may get to meet one day at one of my slow rest retreats.

Flow gently.
