Peace Mala Endorsement
Inner-Peace Specialist, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
It is all too easy to be cynical and focused on all the ills of the world, with heightened awareness of the excesses in materialism, corruption, and greed. However, the reality is that alongside the shortcomings of humanity is an abundance of daily acts of individual kindness, altruism and, compassion for the people and natural environment of planet Earth. One such ray which has successfully captured the hearts and minds of schools across the UK is Peace Mala with its vision for kinder, gentler, and socially responsible children. The brilliance of Peace Mala’s approach lies in the faith that it places in children to rise to the occasion of showing tolerance and caring for others when shown the way how to become practitioners of the Golden Rule. Indeed, Peace Mala’s conviction in children is well founded when we consider the number of projects that children have and continue to spearhead all over the globe to assist all kinds of causes both at home and abroad. By investing in the children, Peace Mala is contribution to building a foundation of solid citizens of the future.
Personal peace, is a spring board from which other states such as wellbeing, and joy can take root and grow. Our individual inner-peace also has a ripple effect resulting in ever widening circles of the same. The more we nurture our inner-peace, the more effectively we can respond to whatever comes our way, enabling us to interact with our neighbours, our co-workers, our family, our friends, and others who cross our path in constructive and positive ways.
MY CURRENT FOCUS
I work with people who seek self-awareness, self-empowerment and joy in their personal and work life. A passion of mine is to contribute to greater peace in the workplace and to that end I began a Peace in the Workplace Project. With over 20 years of leading and teaching meditation, training in Applied Counselling and Reiki, volunteer service with non-profit boards, and a career in senior positions in the public sector, I draw on the disciplines of psychology, spirituality, leadership, change management, and performance outcomes, in carrying out my work.

Until 2013 I had a career spanning nearly 30 years in the public sector with the Government of Manitoba including director-level positions in policy development, value for money auditing, and change management.
