ABOUT HARMONIC GROWTH
Harmonic Growth has been unfolding organically for over 20 years.
I started holding didgeridoo sound baths, in the late 1990's, as a way of supporting deep relaxation and well-being for individuals and groups. Mandala making was introduced to encourage people to connect with their creativity and to explore setting intentions. Personal development exercises were then woven into the organic nature of the workshops to address the various forms of resistance many of the participants met when attempting to tap into their creative self. Nature connection exercises were added to the weekend sessions to aid people seeking clarity and inspiration on issues present in their lives through the power of spending time in nature. Triads (exploring the voice in groups of three), body work (simple stretches), breathing exercises and exploring diet are other elements of the workshops that support participants to fully integrate intentions and changes in their daily lives.
After studying 'Spatial Design' at college I worked as an Interior designer. When an opportunity to travel in India and Nepal arose in 1995, I left my job to spend time exploring the world. I spent a number of years working overseas and traveling extensively. During this time I experienced many personal healings which aided my quest for clarity and understanding.
My journey of self-discovery continued to deepen after an emotional opening in 1998, when I was attuned to Reiki. This pivotal moment instigated many changes in my life and was the beginning of my exploration of life's subtler elements, especially listening to and acting upon my intuition. In 2000 I became a Group Guide for Trees for Life after participating on a Conservation Week in Glen Affric where I experienced a deep connection with the land and an affinity with the aims of the charity.
Over the past decade I have been involved in 'Rights of Passage' weekends for men and teenagers through the charities 'The Mankind Project' and 'Journeyman UK' as well as being a local mentor for Inverness based 'Day 1'. I have experienced deep healing and powerful growth through the support of these organisations and believe that having rights of passages for different transitions in life can be hugely transformative and see them as a key element to a healthy community and society.
I have studied with the College of Sound Healing, Chloe Goodchild and Biofield Tuning as well as with many other teachers and am passionate about sharing sound work, my fondness of nature and experience of mentoring to support others while continuing to open to my own personal truths.
I have been playing the didgeridoo for over 20 years and delight in the oppourtunity to experience new sounds and rhythms while sharing this work.
I joined the Anam Cara community in 2016 and am currently involved in the running of the retreat centre.
