It’s time to stand with the Earth.

Our Actions have an impact
To be a positive force on Earth we need to be consciously and experientially aware that we share our place with other forms of life.
My work is about developing a conscious active relationship with ourselves, with the groups we participate in and with the places we live.
- Individuals to help them be the most they can be.
- Organizations to awaken the collective spirit. I’ve developed a language and a model to enable us to develop an active conscious relationship with the spirit of the organization.
- Spirit of place. Organizations like people exist in a place. Landforms, trees, energy wells, subtle earth meridians all effect our inner harmony and therefore the smooth functioning of us and of the organisations we are part of.
I grew up with the red and black soils between the Macquarie and Castlereagh Rivers in central western NSW. It is here on these vast dry plains that I developed a relationship with land and the subtle energies of place.
I have an undergraduate degree in Systems Agriculture, majoring in environmental community development. Following ten years in the Landcare movement, I realised that the source of the dysfunction in the world is on the inside, it is within our psyche. So in 1999 I began to study and practice the techniques of a meditation school exploring the landscape of consciousness within the western esoteric tradition. I felt that to clean up the world, perhaps the best place to begin was with myself.
My Ph.D is in the spirit of organizations which I discovered are inseparable from the spirit of place.
I have two published books, ‘Experiences of Grace‘ which shares experiences of meditation and transformation.
My second book is titled, ‘Across the Creek, land energy experiences in the home paddock‘. It shares my journey exploring the spirit of place at my home property, Booroola.

I rest on the philosophy of Plato’s and many others who suggest that the creation emerged from ‘The One’. The life flowing through you, is the same life flowing through me in a different form. If you want to find solutions to earthly dilemmas look for the source.
We do not solve the problem from the level of the problem.
My experience suggests that every form has a higher mode and lower mode of expression and that we can transcend the polarity of dualism with aspiration. There is always a higher truth that embodies the whole. I also believe that it is the intrinsic desire for all beings is to realise their highest potential. The most extraordinary life emerges when we hold each moment towards the most that can be.
If you’d like to work with me it might be a bit wild, but it will be awakening, open, full of light and fun.
