    Background

    I have had an incredible journey through my life, developing my work, having my amazing

    children and exploring what is really important to me. I have faced many challenges at

    different times, including facing homelessness, challenges with my own mental health,

    supporting close family with theirs, battling with my weight, low self-esteem and panic

    attacks. I have also challenged myself to overcome my fears by going in a microlight, running

    (and walking) the London Marathon, and travelling to parts of India that have not been visited

    by Westerners before.

    My lifes journey has led to me explore a diverse range of tools and techniques that might

    support my own development. I have been incredibly

    fortunate to work with hundreds of amazing people,

    supporting them on their own personal and

    professional journeys. I have taken the aspects of

    these pivotal moments that have had the biggest

    impact on me and my clients and put them into one

    place. Sacred Journey to Your Best Work has become

    that place.

    As I looked at how to present my findings, the words

    rite of passage kept coming up for me. I have taken

    the road less travelled; I have left the reassuring

    shoreline to cross the unknown sea; I have stepped

    into the darkness not knowing where light would

    come from. These reflections have led me to do

    research into ancient rites of passage and the

    processes that were used. I realised very quickly that

    my pivotal moments fitted directly into a common 12 stage process that many rites have in

    common from across the world and over the years.

    Sacred Journey to Your Best Work was born! It had its own first rite of passage!

    Different ways to take part

    This booklet is intended as a self-study programme that you can work through at your own

    pace and in your own time, developing your own journey through the process I have

    developed.

    However, there are several ways you can take part:

    Use the booklet by yourself

    Get coaching from me to support you through the process, where I can help you to

    stick to the programme and work with you to help you get the most out of it

    Take part in a 6 week online programme that gives more information about each

    stage, we work through the process together,

    alongside others. This has the benefit of

    accountability and a ready-made tribe to

    support you through the process

    Take part in a 12 week programme that goes into

    greater detail and gives you the opportunity to

    integrate the process further
