TRIBE – SUSHMA BRAGG
I am passionate about the power of healing and how it can benefit us all, worldwide. I’ve always been intrigued by crystals, from a very young age. Their wonderful beauty and sparkle attracted me initially and that curiosity & intuition developed into my love for them. Which led to me learning more about them and their wonderful healing properties. I have undertaken many courses over the years in varying methods of crystal healing and crystal learning workshops. I also do dowsing for health and I am a Reiki practitioner, all three therapies compliment each other nicely. I am also a Satsang Meditation workshop leader and run this special kind of meditation to the city on a monthly basis.
TRIBE – HELEN SHARDLOW
Captivated and in awe of nature since a toddler, she would sit for hours in rock pools prodding and poking all that moved, or didn’t! This led her into a career in marine biology, specialising in ecotoxicology. Working in nature conservation made her acutely aware of how disrespectful we can be towards our Earth and environment but felt this lack of care often extends towards ourselves. She retrained as a Medical Herbalist and feels that by improving our own health and well-being: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, we naturally and automatically extend that benevolent desire out to the wider environment. She just loves herbs and never ceases to be amazed and delighted by their incredible ability to bring about healing and a sense of well-being on all levels.
TRIBE – HELEN YOUNG
I am passionate about eliminating any kind of stigma and in particular with regards to mental health. Having faced and overcome my own mental health battle in 2005, I began to appreciate the power of the mind and how it can easily control us, both positively and negatively. I was lucky enough to work with a counsellor who I felt connected to and who helped me work through past issues whilst encouraging me to discover myself and what makes me tick. Life has a habit of throwing us hurdles and I have learnt to appreciate each one as an opportunity to learn and grow as a person although that is easier said than done at times.
