Hello and welcome to my website, which I have developed in order to share with you the joys I find in life. This includes photography, digital art and painting (see my separate website), poetry and writing.
I was born and raised in Brighton, East Sussex, in the UK. Following an early career as a secretary I retrained and became an adult trainer. Then in 1986 I established HOST Policy Research and until 2017 I ran Research Educate Develop (HOST Policy Research). I am also known by my spirit name ShannathShima, the snow leopard.
My aim is to promote life, work and energy balance and I try to live this in practice in Umbria, Italy, where I live with my husband Graham (Barnet Boy), ours dog Ringo and Spud and a multitude of cats, including the famous Stevie Mouse.
This website includes a section on the training courses I offer – they include Reiki (a form of healing; I have been a Reiki Master/Teacher since 1997) and Tai Chi and Qi Gong (I am a Tai Chi Nation qualified instructor). It also includes a section on my publications.
As a teacher I am a master of some things and a novice in others and learning all the time, both updating my skills but also developing an awareness of my inner truth and how to present it.
I hope you find something that resonates with you.
