ACTIVIST, MOTHER, AND QUESTION WEAVER
I am a pilgrim between inner and outer landscapes, remembering ancient earthly ecstatic practices in radical presence and active listening, ecopsychology, art and writing.
I believe it is essential to recover medial wisdom practices, both individual and communal, of relationship and connection, so that despite the grief and pain we go through as a collective, we recreate rituals, stories and mystery. It is important to remember the collaborative practices that sustain and bring meaning.
I am a 'designer' by academic training and began studying Feng Shui and Chinese astrology in 2003. I am certified in Ecopsychology from Pacifica University in the USA. I (un)learn from Bayo Akomolafe, and I'm a Warm-Data Host of Nora Bateson's systemic line. Ecopsychology, transpersonal and liberation psychology, radical listening and presence, as well as ecstasy, animism ancient sacred connections and contextual practices have reforested my soul.
