I encourage you to have daily adventures in your everyday life. By noticing what is around you, by being creative, learning new things, and by spending more time in the outdoors. It’s very easy to get stuck in a rut, or forget how to see new possibilities and opportunities. By embracing change, becoming more conscious of your surroundings, and exploring new things you can kick-start a new life for yourself.
The greatest way to develop this connection further is by exploring and developing your own creativity. If you need help, I offer weekly sessions, seasonal workshops, creative coaching, and courses in which I facilitate learning in drawing, watercolours, land art, design and more…
