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.

Take a look at my freelance offerings, and prior work and experience here

Last year, I relocated from Scotland to Finland to be with my beloved, and started work as a freelancer. A big change! It’s been a steep learning curve. One that is now gratefully beginning to level out.

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. The curious and delightful blending of mindfulness, creativity, language and art. I’ve offered some of this unfolding creativity as online events.

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. I’m looking forward to seeing what unfolds next.

Emerging illustrated book

You’ll find pieces of Maria’s creative and collaborative work unfolding on fb , instagram and via Connection Playground fb.

As the summer moves into autumn, new things will arrive here, including the sale of intuitive flow art.
