My Story.

Becoming unwell.

After my 4 children (I also had another child who passed at 4 weeks) left home I noticed that my body was becoming tenser and tenser. On the surface life was great. Underneath, grumblings were going on. After a while, I developed Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other digestive complaints. I went on a search to fix my body. My body became depressed. I just wanted to go home. I was homesick. 

Finding the solution.

In amongst this my daughter in England sent me a book called The Journey. I read part of it and left it. Some time after this my eyes spotted a brochure for a Journey Practitioner. I put one in my handbag. A year later a Kinesiologist said that there was something that I needed to do to be accountable to myself. I said that I was thinking about training in a health modality, maybe to do with emotions. He asked my body questions and then asked me if I had heard of The Journey – Wow!! So I saw a Journey Practitioner and during 2008 I did the training, attending seminars in Australia. My body healed.

Life after:

My life carried on the same – going to work, relating to husband and children, gardening, doing hobbies etc. AND YET - MY LIFE WAS TOTALLY DIFFERENT. My awareness of life was deeper. I continued to develop and grow in awareness of myself.  I knew that home was inside me. Clients came.  

I went on a pilgrimage to India for 3 weeks with other Journey Practitioners in 2009/2010. My second trip to India was an advanced Journey seminar at Mt Arunachala. I have been twice since to the same sacred mountain. 

I named my practice The Inner Path, after the walking track around Mt Arunachala. 

I wrote for 2 community newspapers – a small column of inspiration and self-inquiry, which led to publishing a set of inspirational cards. (see photo….and below for prices and availability)

My internal world continued to expand. I left my husband of 42 years, left my loved job of 25 years, changed towns, bought a property with a beautiful man – but after 11 months I needed to leave this relationship.

So then, I experienced more major changes to my life. New jobs, new town, and getting to know new people. This has created a super awareness of the strategies I use, the patterns of behaviour I have developed and provides me with opportunities to expand, let go of old stuff and open to the expansiveness of life. Opening to the love that life is.

During 2017 I wrote for the Horowhenua Chronicle.

At the beginning of 2018, I attended a weekend seminar with Gangaji and Eli Jaxon-Bear. Immediately I knew that I needed to enroll with the Leela School of Awakening. For me, The Journey was a stepping stone to Leela work.

This is the true work of awakening. It is direct and powerful.  We all want to be happy. We all want to be deeply and truely heard.

This is it.

To be so deeply heard that I know my true self, that I experience what it is in me that does not change, that I feel safe and loved. I am home.

Find out how emotionally healthy you are

It was just a miracle. I felt desperate. My back had seized up. I went to Annette with no idea of what was about to happen. I arrived in pain and with no mobility in my back. I learnt to let go. The next day I had regained the movement in my back. It is now a year later and my back is still good. It was and is a miracle.
