Curiosity

Compassion

Courage

Being present in this moment, no matter what the moment brings, is a great and curious adventure. Learning to gently accept the beautiful messiness of being human is not always easy, but it’s certainly worth it.

If you’re curious about kindly working with your mind to cultivate more joyful and resilient health and wellbeing, we have plenty of common ground.

I regularly offer compassionate based mindfulness introductions, events, and courses, for individuals, groups, and organisations.

Mindfulness Based Living Course participant

In 2018, I relocated from Scotland to Finland to be with my beloved, and started work as a freelancer. You can take a look at some of my freelance offerings, and prior work and experience here

Since relocating I’ve been offering compassion based mindfulness courses and workshops for adults and young adults online. I’ve also offered group facilitation, mental health and wellbeing support, and mindfulness practitioner supervision.

Along the way, something else has unfolded. A greater confidence in the way I blend mindfulness, and creativity. Something that I’ve started to call intuitive flow art.

It’s always a surprise to see what is flowing through. Right now, there seems to be an illustrated book in the making.

Emerging illustrated book

You’ll find some of my creative and collaborative work unfolding on Facebook , instagram and via Connection Playground‘s Facebook. I’ve also been sharing this way of creating and being, via online facilitated events.

As winter moves into spring, new things will arrive, and emerge, including the sale of intuitive flow art.
