A Movie On My Life?
Last week I was asked a couple of questions for a feature on the INSTAGRAM pages of girl.bosses.au – and the final question took me a few re-writes to nail!
1. TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOU, AND HOW YOU CAME TO START YOUR BUSINESS?
I learned to meditate as a teenager, so it has always been a HUGE part of my life. I started a blog for Quiet Mind Meditation in 2008, firstly as a means to write about my passion for meditation & my journey. At the time I was also juggling a very competitive corporate career; slowly being decimated by the global financial crisis. So, thank goodness for my daily practice to keep me grounded and open. Then in 2009, I found myself at a true crossroad. I took myself off on a retreat, and there, in the stillness, & away from regular life, I realized that I had to share what had been such a profound and ‘enlightening’ practice… what I call a ‘life skill’.
2. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING YOU SELL OR SERVICE YOU OFFER?
I am blessed with being able to introduce people to a life-changing personal practice, a journey that often starts with a desire to ‘manage stress, stop my crazy busy mind’ & leads to the realization of a much deeper yearning: to reconnect with ourselves, those we love & the world around us. Separation becomes Connection. My eCourse enables me to share this alchemy across the globe. There are no real barriers to starting a meditation practice, you just need an intention & to START.
3. IF A MOVIE WAS MADE ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE ABOUT AND WHICH ACTOR WOULD YOU WANT TO PLAY YOU?
Our inner-world journey is so unique, so an unknown actor would be best: to show openness, curiosity & ‘beginners mind’. Along with a limited script, awesome expansive images & lots of stillness & spaciousness. A sweet indie movie ’Just One of the Many Roads up the Mountain. Let us Walk Together’.
Many thanks to Alecia and The Team GBA for a fun mid-week interview that made me laugh .. my life? as a movie?
