I chase creativity. I dance with joy. I lead with heart. I inspire with art.
My work – and my life – is an exploration of our ability to shape and co-create reality. As a facilitator and movement teacher I bring people together in conversation, movement and creativity – to re-imagine possibilities, to let go limiting beliefs, dive into the innate creativity of the human spirit and blend our wisdom in the co-creation of the world - and lives - we want.
Through retreats, conscious dance classes and workshops, I create gatherings in which we can courageously communicate with one another - through the body, the voice and creative expression. I seek to create spaces in which we can be and bring the fullness of ourselves - and rediscover the power, potential, wisdom, innovation and collaboration that arises when we do.
My life is my experimentation ground, and through art, movement and dance, I’m gradually discovering and embracing my ability to shape the world around me. It’s a journey I love sharing with others. Put simply, the creative process brings me joy! And maybe that’s all this is – and all that life is – an exercise in learning to dance through the unknown with joy.
I have enormous enthusiasm and curiosity, which translates into a love of lifelong learning and a mix-bag of passions and vocations. I'm a trainer and Associate with the Groupwork Institute of Australia and a certified Dancing Freedom facilitator. I have a deep love for health and the mind-body connection and also work as a yoga and pilates instructor and thai massage bodyworker. I believe passionately in the innate goodness within all of us and the power of collaboration. My past work includes journalism, international and community development, tertiary teaching and research... And somehow, it all weaves together to nourish my philosophy and approach to life now.
My modus operandi: believe in the impossible, trust in others, stay flexible and have fun reaching the goal.
My loves: wide open spaces and nature’s palette. Heart connection. Wild, free, expressive movement. And smiles.
My dream: communities at one with each other and the natural world to which we belong.
