Asking for support from the wider community!
I need the support of the community to be able to do what I do. Everywhere I go, I rely on the good nature of the people I meet, and do my best to offer a fair exchange.
The simple truth is, the lifestyle of a wandering practitioner is both rewarding and challenging! Indeed, this website holds the resources and documentation of my experiences traveling through life and learning what works in community and relationships.
What does the community support help achieve?
I have seen first hand how the Arts work wonders within communities all over Australia, in India, and in Thailand.
On my travels I have met so many different people, worked many different jobs, and gained a broad perspective from so frequently being a newcomer. In each place I go I bring my experience of other places and contexts.
The community creative projects I'm involved are most often volunteer or donation based, and involve people from all walks of life.
Access to effective mentoring and practitioners is an essential need of a changing culture, and I've experienced both ends of the spectrum in terms of quality and accessibility.
It is my intention to bring to fruition creative projects that are for the benefit of individuals, the wider community, and ultimately to represent the integrity of a compassionate and critical practice.
The Traveling Ear
As a traveling or semi-nomadic practitioner, I'm privileged to spend time with many different people and hear about and learn from their stories.
In many ways, the work of mentoring and therapy is witnessing and valuing the experiences of oneself and others. Creative Therapy is the use of techniques to give voice and expression to the story within all people.
I so often experience the significance of genuine connection in creative contexts that I have come to understand it is fundamentally important in healing, community, and relationships.
All of my mentors have spoken about and demonstrated a crucial ability and interest in listening to people with compassion and respect. I've been truly blessed to experience this in my mentors, and I strive to apply the same integrity in all my connections.
How can you help?
There are 3 main ways you can contribute to this work. The first one is to keep an open mind when it comes to travelers! I'm always interested in networking on the larger trail, and generally keep my future open for opportunities, and my ear to the ground for places to stay and contribute in.
The second is by sharing anything you found valuable on this site, with anyone who you think might be interested or benefit from it. Sharing is paramount to this work, and I appreciate all the help and feedback that the wider community provides.
The third is by donation! Financial support directly enables me to keep doing community and volunteer work and helps create the right circumstances for magic to happen. By donating money, the community supports me to support others, and offer my service as a practitioner to the people that I meet. In the larger scheme, the costs are low and a little bit of financial support goes a long way. The money is spent on transport, food, equipment, training and communication.
