MY story & mission
Hi - I’m Lauren
Thank you for being here!
This is a space dedicated to supporting you to live a more mindful and compassionate life so that you can live from a place of kindness, generosity and abundance to assist in the transformation of our world.
I am not perfect and I don’t strive to be. I believe that like love, our inner work is endless, empowering and ever changing.
My definition of the good life includes long distance thru hiking with my hubby, vegan living, time to meditate and hangs with my fur babes! I enjoy having real conversations with honest and open souls; I am taken by good design, sexy interiors and mountain views. I am a Taurus sun with my ascendant and moon in Capricorn; I am constantly torn between lazing the days away eating and getting out there and making it happen.
There was once a time when I felt really disconnected and cynical about the world around me and I couldn’t understand why. I had done everything society expected of me - great grades, university, law degree, secure job, marriage, house, travel…yet I felts empty and that there must be more.
It wasn’t until I experienced challenges with fertility that I decided to take a path of self inquiry and awaken to the outdated beliefs systems and conditioning that were keeping me from living a truly rich, connected and meaningful life.
Personally, the old story of success and the path to reach it left me wanting. It was insular. It was egocentric. It was numbing. As a result my mind and body suffered. I felt anxious, negative and angry. I also began to experience the early stages of autoimmune dysfunction.
What I have come to realise is that we long for connection, belonging, love and healing. Yet our actions, steeped in old beliefs and conditioning as a collective cultivate personal suffering and contribute to the suffering of our planet.
We make delusive attempts at fulfilling these deep desires with things that will never satiate. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can awaken to the suffering in our choices and choose differently.
But it isn’t just our own suffering that we cause. I have become deeply saddened by the way our global collective treats our Earth and those perceived as 'other'. I can see how as a society we are governed by old beliefs that elicit varying degrees of greed, scarcity mindset and fear.
We all have a part to play in lifting the global consciousness to a more compassionate, generous and unified existence. I believe that we can do this by compassionately transcending the stories and beliefs that no longer serve us on an individual level and then from a place of self awareness turn our attention outward to give back in our own unique way.
Times are changing and we are waking up to the inherent truth that we are deeply connected to our environment and those we share this planet with.
Our choices and what we fuel with our time, energy and money is important and has a far reaching impact.
Supporting you to become more self aware and realise your gift back to the world is why I am here.
Through my life experiences (both good and challenging), my meditation and spiritual practice, and thirst for learning from others I continue to be supported to go within and transcend what no longer serves me and this planet so that I can make conscious choices to live in alignment with what does. I continue to flow with the life that is here and open to new perspectives and ways of being - which so far has lead me on a fascinating and different path to what I had planned - which is not such a bad thing after all!
I have been incredibly fortunate throughout my life and have received more than I need to truly experience the richness of life. Ultimately, many of us in the privileged west receive much more than we contribute or gift back - yet what a beautiful world it would be if we did. So I want to pay it forward. While it is no where near enough, I have chosen to share my offerings on this site through a gratitude system. The hope is that the offerings you receive here will go beyond the two of us and begin to serve the whole.
