My background is in community development and working with young people at risk and the professionals that support them. I worked for various social change movements and I have been a trainer facilitator and coach for 35 years. My passions are meditation and creating spaces for deep inquiry and celebration of the human condition. I have been leading intergenerational retreats and retreats for mothers for many years. I have engaged in actions with Extinction Rebellion and am keen to strengthen and deepen my Eco-sattva spirit. Currently, I am chair of Buddhafield and have been a member of the Triratna Buddhist Order and Community for 21 years.
I am a Processwork psychotherapist in training and conflict facilitator, and have been coordinator of the Green Earth Awakening Camp since its formation. I care deeply about supporting people to collaborate effectively, by addressing power and practices that perpetuate harm. I am passionate about the relationship between personal and systemic transformation.
