YOUR FACILITATOR IS MICHELLE RYAN
Michelle believes that we, as humans, truly need to return to ourselves to find inner peace and clarity. When in a mindful state, she considers that we naturally and positively influence the World around us.
In the late 90’s Michelle commenced her path of self-discovery out of curiosity and the need to manage the anxiety she often felt about the future. Her medium of discovery at the time was reading books, journaling and regularly attending Yoga.
Since this time, and particularly in the past five years, she’s participated in meditation and yoga retreats. These experiences have assisted to alleviate the stress that came with the responsibilities of running a family and a business.
During her career, you’d find Michelle often listening intently to customers, friends, neighbours and family and learning of their stories. Talking with others about their lives has been her happy place.
Having had 25+ years in Human Resource Development and Management, she’s returned to her authentic creative self and love for the esoteric.
She meditates most days to remain present, preferring to live in the ‘now’ instead of being on autopilot and missing the life in front of her. Her favourite possession is a singing bowl, which she finds helpful as a means to calmness.
Michelle is currently focused on her family of six (includes two fur babies) with a lovely husband, a son working in Real Estate and a daughter in her first year of university. She loves painting, nature and snorkelling and is currently studying towards her Diploma in Integral Sound Healing (Groups) at the Sound Healing Academy.
Her intention as a Mindfulness Works Australia facilitator is to help participants find personal peace and calm during what is an interesting time to be living.
