Wellbeing Leader, Healer, Teacher, Visionary, Leader

As a sensitive high energy person it was a relief to discover and start studying Chinese Medicine at age 21. It literally saved my life! Immediately I could see where I belonged in the world and how to strengthen my mind-body balance. This time tested medical tradition shows us how we connect to the world around us and how the body-mind is one system . Teaching and learning has been a lifelong passion. For nearly a decade I owned and directed the 'Christchurch College of Holistic Healing' offering full time Acupuncture practitioner training. Since 1993 I have been co-leading mind-body Wellbeing retreats in Hawaii, China, Australia, Bali and New Zealand. What I know is people transform when they learn how to be their own healers and teachers. What we really need to know is inside us all. Facilitating connection to our deep knowing Self, and universal energies, is my contribution to the Wellbeing revolution. The YBY courses provide simple clear reference points on HOW to nurture lifelong wellbeing for the body mind. The focus is on connecting to our true Heart nature. The teachings are uplifting, Heartfelt and Unifying.
