“This is my life’s work. After losing my mum to cancer at a young age I struggled against depression, stress, sensitivity, grief and exhaustion for a good chunk of my adult life. For as long as I could remember I was always told I was too sensitive and the message that stuck with me was “my emotions are bad and it’s not safe to express them”. So I did my best to keep them hidden playing the people pleaser and letting perfectionism control my life. Until eventually my body couldn’t carry the weight of all of the words and feelings I hadn’t expressed and I began to listen.
Through yoga, meditation and living in community I learnt to practice deep listening and I discovered there was a lighter way to live. It wasn’t about pretending the emotions didn’t exist but instead to find the tools that worked for me to help me be really present when they arose. The ‘way’ for me was to stop fighting against life, to practice openness, to let go, to stop trying so hard and to embrace what was left & really listen to the wisdom of my body and Heart. I am so grateful for all of the teachers and mentors that offered safe passage for me to navigate my darkness and to learn to embrace it as much as my light. I’m so blessed to now be able to share this wisdom with others.”
