After a career at the BBC and a glamorous adventure as an independent film producer, she has discovered she is happiest living simply in a mud-hut, off-grid. Many years of chronic illness knocked both pretensions and limiting ideas out of Vaishnavi and the gifts she has brought back through her healing journey, including several years living in an Indian ashram, allow her deep compassion in holding the journey of others.
“The biggest lesson for me has been the power of safe holding: when we feel truly safe, honoured and held, healing happens by itself. That has been my direct experience again and again and I am most moved to create and offer this space, this healing field of love for others.”
A trained facilitator of Kundalini Yoga, Reiki and Vortex Healing, Vaishnavi’s main focus is currently on the healing power of voice: mantra chanting, kirtan and diving playfully more into the rich work of freeing your authentic sound (after Chloe Goodchild and The Naked Voice in the UK). She is one half of sacred mantra duo EARTH.
“The thread which seems to weave through my life is that of “coming home”: in this fragmented, scattered, overstretched day and age, the simple allowing of ourselves to drop into our beings, fully, is essential.”
