“I would not give a fig for the simplicity on this side of complexity, but I would give my life for the simplicity on the other side of complexity” Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes
I was born in Johannesburg just as apartheid was written into the law books of South Africa. Steeped in colour issues and the polarisation of a segregated society, it is no wonder that at university I studied history and psychology. No real answers were forthcoming however and my search deepened. In time I qualified as an Astrologer (mind), a Polarity Therapist (body) and an Aura-Soma practitioner (spirit). Life in South Africa led me to understand and value diversity, fertile soil indeed for cultivating awareness.
I view a chart as a map of the soul’s intent: to decipher the map and find the yellow brick road has been my passion for twenty years. My focus for the past few years has been to simplify the combining of astrology and the colour system of Aura-Soma, so deepening my work as a Polarity Practitioner.
I offer basic and advanced astrology courses as well as a course in which the colour rose and its myriad implications can be superimposed on a particular chart, revealing for each participant their own personal mandala created at the moment they drew their first breath.
At the moment I am creating a course for Aura-Soma Practitioners in which the participants explore in a simple and playful way how the Equilibrium bottles and the age-old disciplines of astrology, numerology, mythology and tarot interact and contribute to, clarifying and affirming the guidance the universe has to offer.
Launching this web site is perhaps the most exciting venture I have ever committed to and only time will tell what happens next!
