I have always been fascinated by our individual differences, our unique experience of the world. Why is it that there are patterns in human behaviour though the ways in which they manifest is unique in each of us? My awareness and curiosity developed very early on.
My lived experience informs my practice, everything in my life has brought me here.
I began to really reflect: “What is my body telling me?, How can I be, more me? What's meaningful to me?, What can I learn from this?".
My pain became my teacher, attuning me to my body's wisdom. I learned to mindfully explore the felt sense, turning towards my emotions which became my messengers. I explored gently pendulating between pain and pleasure while remaining anchored in my values. I began reconnecting mind and body, harmonizing my needs, passions, strengths and direct experience to not only survive, but thrive and live in alignment - embodying my truth.
I was an observer of individual differences, growing up seeing my big brother navigating the world with a congenital condition that influenced his abilities and position in the world. I began to better understand perception and how reality is not as it is, but as one experiences it.
My observations turned into academia where I studied Psychology and Neuroscience and eventually went on to work in film, business and technology.
Looking back, like many of us, I avoided deeply feeling difficult emotions because it meant getting closer to suffering. We are programmed to evade painful experiences and I wasn’t prepared. I focused on more “fun” interests: film and music. How could I help artists make a living from their creativity? How could I help them reach their potential?
After a major and unexpected turn in 2014, I had no choice. This time it was me living with chronic pain and fighting every day to give meaning and purpose to what I was doing. Lost, emotionally and physically exhausted I began to reconnect with myself.
