I like teenagers and their energy! I have natural infinity with them.
I have run many residential teenager retreats around the world, as well as trained others to do the same. I have worked for the national charity called All Faiths and None, to train teachers how to work with young people to facilitate discussion on the big question in life.
I can engage teenager in a discussion where we can explore the best way forward for them to support their natural expression of who they are.
I have made radical changes in my life, based on listening to my heart, I did not write a list or evaluate the options, or do some 360 degree personality test. I have deeply listened to myself and trust what arise when it comes with clarity and put that into action. The choice is always with clarity, the process is not always easy and the actions after that are not always straightforward. The result is a life of authenticity, meaning and ultimately freedom not based on any conditions

My personal experience with change
I left a very good job managerial job at the age of 21, went to university and studied Artificial Intelligence, I then traveled around the world for four years. I left the wordily life to become a Buddhist monk, where I lived ten years without money and on trust. I spent another five years as wandering freelance monk, living on a oragnic farm in England, run retreats and workshops in Perth Australia. I left the monks life to return to the market place and embrace life and relationship in it’s fullest.
