I am 3rd generation South African, assimilated into the global village. My passions include empowerment in the development sector and tarot. I've always been intuitive and practical. I have been in the development sector for almost 20 years. I have been in the divining arts (pendulums, crystals, tarot, lenormand) for just over 10 years. I have a deep passion to demystify, heal and recalibrate. This is reflected in my work and passions. Learning, agency and growth is a large part of my approach.

It also offers yoga courses that enables us to be flexible on numerous levels. Please refer to the videos for better instruction.

In this initial post, I pay homage to my Guru, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. He has helped me go with the flow even when resisting has felt like the most instinctive thing to do. In the great words of Shrek, it’s like shedding layers of an onion. For a wide range of courses that allows us to connect deeply with ourselves and others, go to
