As a Facilitator, I am Committed to

  • Symposium Presenter
  • Community Coordinator
  • Facilitator Training Leader

I have always been passionate about nature and protecting its rights, and its beauty.  I have worked for environmental protection agencies, and helped raise awareness around aboriginal issues.  I now live in an ecovillage teaching ways of living more gently on the earth, how to create community, and how we can communicate with the other species we share our beautiful planet with.

I have been leading Symposiums since February 2007 and was the primary contact person in NSW, Australia from 2008 to 2010 and on the board of Be The Change Australia from 2008 to 2014.  I have been a Facilitator Training Leader since Feb 2010 and have led trainings in Australia and the UK.

I currently live in Findhorn, Scotland and am on the board of Be the Change Initiative in the UK.  I continue to lead Symposiums and Facilitator Trainings in the UK. 

I've been a Facilitator since 2007. I have delivered 9 events with a total of 132 attendees.

Why I'm a Pachamama Alliance Facilitator

When I first heard about the Symposium I just knew I had to get involved! The purpose spoke to me then - now Pachamama speaks through me!

I just love holding that space in which transformation takes place - as people recognise (remember?!) their profound interconnectedness with everything and everyone, and I see the shift as they begin to see themselves as empowered game changers.

I love this work!

If I could change the world

If I could change one thing in the world it would be for everyone to wake up in the morning and suddenly remember how much they LOVE nature and the natural world.  When their hearts are filled to bursting with the sense of happiness that comes from spending time with a tree, an animal, a lake, a bird, they will want to protect it with all their might.  Then everyone's priority will be to stop using the planet as a resource and start cherishing it instead.
