About

I have worked in the alternative/complimentary field for four decades which has taken me around the world creating many opportunities to bring healing into the lives of others. I have worked in many roles including as a professional counsellor for children, young people and adults, a massage therapist, yoga teacher, spa manager, minister, shaman and healer. I have also owned and managed a health and wholeness store which offered health foods, supplements, therapy and training in the Shamanic Arts and Reiki. My vast and varied travels, work opportunities and spiritual walk has fashioned me into who I am today; it has taken me through many doorways which has led me up many mountains and through many valleys. I take a holistic approach to life believing that we are all equal and all part of the greater consciousness.

Over the years my mobility has declined greatly with 2016 bringing the need to use a powered wheelchair. Being disabled has its challenges but I choose to see this time as a blessing. These last few years has seen me draw back and delve even deeper within and from this drawing back has sprung the knowledge that it is now time to write. The desire to write has been with me since a young child and I now have the opportunity – this is the silver lining of my disability, however, I see the disability as part of my journey not the destination.

I hope you enjoy the website, please follow me on Twitter and remember that the core of humanity rests on: Love – Compassion – Forgiveness.

Always Walk in Peace – Kenzo
