Hey There, I’m Kelley (she/her)
How I got here
Like a lot of people in the well-being and health space, I got here because my health (mental and physical) used to be terrible. As I dedicated myself to my own personal liberation, I decided to crystalize my learnings with professional training and empower others to do that same. I continue to learn and study, creating an ever-evolving practice.
It started with movement, moved into nutrition, then sleep, resilience, boundary-setting, opening up to self-compassion, developing mindful awareness, compassionate action, ethics and a deep desire to band together with others and create a compassionate revolution … now I weave these all into a holistic experience, coupled with my extensive business experience – because we haven’t evolved past capitalism quite yet.
How It Started
I had the inkling to become a Buddhist at a young age, attending London’s SOAS university to study Classical & Modern Tibetan Language with Theory of Religion, but soon dropped out, preferring to party, run night clubs, and work in the music scene.
I eventually ‘buckled down’ and got my 1st class honors from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in theatre management and went on to become an associate producer of the renowned NofitState Circus, helping take them around the world. But this wasn’t my calling, I quit and ran away to India, to immerse myself again, in Yoga and Buddhism.
When it all went wrong
But, I was confronted with the hard truth that a solo, unchecked deep-dive into this ancient practice alone, wasn’t going to heal my trauma, regulate my nervous system, heal my gut or relationship with myself. It was humbling. I was nudged by a Jetsunma to seek out and engage in therapy. Which I did back in Europe, confused about the sudden turn of events. But, this was the catalyst for the deeper transformation I’d been heading towards and hoping for. I began a new journey to try and understand what was happening in this alchemical pot of buddhism and therapy in which I was now curiously held.
I’m now proud to be eight years sober and settled in my new (and constantly changing) heartfelt life.
