Originally from the Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia I’ve been living in the UK since 2008 after setting off for a ‘12 month’ adventure and falling in love with London. My background is in the Arts (BA Communications Theatre/Media) and I've worked across all aspects of theatre, festivals, events, communications and music.
My personal path of faith has taken many twists and turns over the years yet I remain deeply curious - devoted to the spiritual path and being of service to the world. Since 2010 I have been an active member of the Triratna Sangha at the London Buddhist Centre and I currently live in a women's Buddhist community in Hackney. I’m also a proud member of the LGBTQI community.
Things that light me up: the ocean. black coffee. magic tricks. peonies. singing alone. singing with others. swimming. meditation. summer nights. my tribe. red nail polish.
WHAT DOES INTERFAITH MINISTER MEAN?
An Interfaith Minister is an ordained, self-employed and non-denominational Minister who has undertaken an intensive two year training in Ministry and Spiritual Counselling with the seminary of the One Spirit Interfaith Foundation - an educational charity based in London & a sister school of the One Spirit Alliance based in New York.
As Interfaith Minister's we are of service to people of all faiths & none. We embrace the universal truth that lies at the heart of all spiritual traditions. We are not creating a new religion or a new church: what we seek goes beyond religions. For me, ‘Interfaith’ is about perspective. It’s a deep curiosity and respect for the countless ways we try to make sense of our existence, the ways we choose to celebrate this life & the infinite ways we each connect to something beautiful, something sacred.
MY MINISTRY: LOVE WORKS
Right now, more so than ever - the world needs lovers.
My Interfaith Ministry is a prayer – a deep holding of our planet that celebrates, honours & bows to our diverse, unique humanity whilst championing wholeness, interconnectedness and love.
I believe faith is a place of mystery that calls for the courage to believe in what we cannot see and the strength to let go of our fear of uncertainty. I believe in your right to believe in whatever lights you up and makes you a vessel of love in the world – and I will bow to anyone who is living the beloved essence of their faith or values.
My Seminary training & Ordination in July '16 has become the richest blessing in my life, affirming my hearts truth that the Divine Mystery manifests for people in different ways - but essentially it whispers the same message: love works.
