Thank you for taking the time to find out a bit more about me. I moved from Scotland to Australia in 1986.
My early years were spent setting up businesses, training and mentoring sales people, working in advertising and marketing. I was a high acheiver and what most people think of as a success. I made great money, drove nice cars, wore beautiful clothes took clients overseas on 5 star trips, owned my own home….but I was not happy.
What did I do?
I went on a 25 year journey of discovery, doing courses where I opened the door to my heart where I cried, laughed, walked on burning coals, stood naked (yes literally) in front of fully clothed people to break down the walls I had built up, meditated and meditated, took every course I could on this search, spent thousands of dollars. I practiced 12 years of intense Bikram yoga ( the burning coals were easier) Listened to great teachers, elders and wise ones. I went to India again and again and again and sat at the feet of gurus and teachers. I meditated in Ashrams and visited holy sites. I did retreats, in silence whilst fasting or purging out toxins. I did sweat lodges, processes, and practices that would have me burned at the stake if it were another time…. I studied and studied and searched…..and all that I have found, I now share.

What is my message? After years of searching for answers, making dreams a reality, triumphing in success as well as being brought to my knees during more than one “Dark night of the Soul” experiencing losses, heartbreaks, betrayals and illness I have come to know this “ You must become your own Savior” (but sometimes need a helping hand)
