MY JOURNEY TO LEARN HOW TO FORGIVE...

AS A YOUNG ADULT MY FATHER WAS TAKEN FROM ME IN A SENSELESS ACT.

I BELIEVE THAT THE WORLD IS A REFLECTION

FOR US TO LEARN FROM

~ EVEN THE TIMES THAT MAKE NO SENSE ~

 

I was a typical young woman in my early 20's ~ studying business & travelling the world. I loved adventure, playing sports and was full of excitement & optimism about my life path that lay ahead.

In 1993 I found out that my father had been murdered in his own home. My life stopped and a complicated crime investigation began. It was this event that initiated my connection to ancient Buddhism teachings about forgiveness and gratitude in life.

I knew inside that for my life to become calm & peaceful once again, I needed to feel happiness. It wasn't easy after this experience, however I knew it was the way... the right way.

 

In October 2006 I met with the man that killed my father. I went to the prison and sat before him in his cell. With no hand-cuffs or guard, we sat together face to face.

 

I forgave him & was at peace.

IT IS MY VISION & PURPOSE TO HELP WOMEN TO KNOW HOW TO FORGIVE & CREATE A HAPPY LIFE.

 

The power of forgiveness, compassion & kindness is so strong. In a world that is full of so many perceived 'demands', it is up to us as individuals to make the right decisions that serve us.

I help women to better their lives through understanding:

- How their mind works

- How to maintain a healthy body

- How to let go of conflict, grief & resentment 

- How to connect and listen to the whispers of their Soul

LIFE DOESN'T HAPPEN TO US,

IT HAPPENS FOR US.

I AM A WORLD BRIDGE BETWEEN CULTURES, A LOVER, A MOTHER, TRAVELLER, HUMAN ACTIVIST, HEALER & TEACHER OF YOGIC MINDFULNESS PRACTICES.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH MASTERS...

HIS HOLINESS, THE DALAI LAMA

In 1997 I met and trained with the Dalai Lama for the first time. Since then I have met with him five more times, in both France & Australia.
 

For me, the opportunity & time with His Holiness the Dalai Lama have been so profound to not only my own personal growth, but also as a Yoga Teacher. Happiness & forgiveness truly is the way.

LAMA ZOPA RINPOCHE

From 1995 to 2003, I received weekly teachings from many Lamas & Nuns at the Amitabha Buddhist Centre in Singapore. This is where I met with Lama Zopa Rinpoche a number of times during his visits from Nepal, and learned the Buddhism foundations - Lam Rim.

 

These teachings taught me intense meditations to master you mind & shift illusioned emotions.

LAMA TEUNSANG

 

In 2003 I met and trained with Lama Teunsang. Since then, I continue to receive many advanced Trantric Tibetan Buddhist teachings from him such as Tchenrezi, Sangye Menla & Shine (Vajrayana Buddhism).
 

This daily Tantric Buddhist meditations have taught me how to strengthen the traits of love & compassion, to forgive & maintain a healthy mind, body & soul.

JOSE RAMOS-HORTA

In 2009 I began working with His Excellency Jose Ramos-Horta, and his Human Rights NGO Diplomacy Training Program for seven years. During this time I travelled many times to Timore-Leste.

As the grand-daughter of well known resistants in Lyon, France during WWII, I was inspired to work with this particular NGO, as José also fought for the independence of his country for 24 years.

I FLOW WITH THE CURRENTS AROUND THE WORLD... WATER IS LIFE.

YOU WILL REGULARLY FIND ME IN

AUSTRALIA - SINGAPORE - FRANCE - INDIA - TAHITI - BALI - USA

I was born in France, however travel & living around the world has always been a way of life for me. Right now I live in Sunshine Coast in Australia, but regularly visit family & friends in Singapore, France, India & Tahiti.

It is a beautiful thing to be able to experience many cultures of the world and I believe this also allows the practice of compassion & forgiveness to be achieved. 

I'm excited to be able to work with women & men globally & can serve in both English & French (so if you are French speaking - don't be shy, please ask me). I look forward to sharing the wonders of the world with you, to help you see life on this planet is here to be embraced and enjoyed.
