Here I Am...

my mission

I am deeply passionate about human flourishing. From self-awareness and education to governance and human rights, I am on a mission to discover what lights people up. I want to know what heals people, what inspires people to reach their highest potential, and what transforms people from being unconsciously conditioned to living consciously. 

I'm love finding evidence that we are all connected: shared space, shared histories, and shared experience. I am driven by the human capacity for empathy: I believe that our lives are punctuated by the moments when our hearts swell. I explore 'the whole person' in society: at home, at work and in communities. Individuals living consciously will lead to the bigger changes we seek: harmonious government, stabilised climate, ethical economies and equality. 

I love communicating and connecting in all forms: writing, researching, teaching, radio, TV and social media. Connect with me on facebook, instagram, twitter and pinterest! I write and meditate everyday to keep my mind clear. I am lit up by swimming in the ocean, singing, yoga, soulful conversations and being with my family, friends, my husband and two sons.
