Awareness + Activism = Changing the World from the Inside Out


I offer regular mindfulness and yoga retreats for participants to replenish and refocus. These are often held at the Tara Rokpa Centre in the North West Province. They are open to individuals or can be arranged for specific groups and organisations.

Courses and Talks

I teach courses in mindfulness, compassion and yoga, in person and using the Insight Timer app. I introduce participants to simple techniques that can be used for stress alleviation, and to bring friendliness to our bodies and minds.

Weddings and Rites

I am a registered marriage officer, and enjoy creating unique ceremonies for couples, depending on their spiritual traditions and interests. I have also attended births, as a doula, and led memorial services at the time of a loved one’s death.

Academic Work

I am lecturing at the University of the Witwatersrand, with Drama for Life. We are including contemplative practices in work with young activists, to ensure they have the skills and sustainability for their social justice work.
