Hello. I’m Linda. I am passionate about nurturing holistic wellbeing, and my aim is to help people find a deeper sense of belonging and connectedness to the Earth, to each other and to their natural selves.
My background in education includes 7 years of primary and French teaching, and 20 years in early childhood education and care, as co-owner of a long day care centre with my sister. I also have experience in after school care (OSHC).
I have a passion for holistic approaches to education, including Steiner early childhood education, and along the way I have also trained as a meditation teacher, transpersonal art therapist and women’s circle facilitator.
In recent years I’ve spent time deepening my personal connection to nature. My own ongoing journey of reconnection, especially through Wayapa, has led me to explore my Irish and English ancestry and my ancestors’ Earth connection practices, to deepen my personal connection to this beautiful land of Australia, my home, getting to know the local landscapes, birds, trees, weather patterns and their interconnections. In doing so, I realised that to truly know this land I needed to deepen my understanding of and connections with First Nations people who have belonged here and cared for Country, living in harmony with the land, for many tens of thousands of years.
I discovered Wayapa Wuurrk and have now become a certified practitioner of this beautiful modality. I have found Wayapa to be both a simple and accessible practice, and a way of life, a map for creating a harmonious, sustainable and interconnected life, alongside our human and more-than-human family. I weave all of my experience and modalities into my Wayapa Earth connection circles, workshops and mentoring programs, and I’m very happy to be able to share it all with you.
