Big Life 

Love your Life.


by Florence~



Florence was Steiner school educated and raised with Macrobiotics. She has been a practitioner of natural healing for 15 years in the UK and abroad. She is a caring, respectful and skillful healer ~ helping people to connect with their own true compass and realign their health.

 Florence Bio                                                       One of six siblings, I was born in the 80's to parents who had recently met as co-workers at the Macrobiotic Community Heath Foundation in Old Street, London. My mother already had a 5 your old son while living and studying Macrobiotics in America. 
 My parents helped set up the North London Rudolf Steiner School.  I  together with my younger and older siblings attended Rudolf Steiner Schools right through our Schooling.
We were one of the few families that also continued a Macrobiotic life style though out the years.
We grew up attending the Macro Summer Camp every summer in the UK and we would always never want to go home wishing that camp life could be  our life always!
When I was 18, I went to Alaska to Ionia, a macrobiotic community, where we had family friends. Here I found a group of people living macro camp as their life!  It caught my attention that in Ionia they placed an emphasis on thoughts creating our well-being, as much as food and environment. After I finished school I went back to Ionia  and spent a number of years living there. 
I had developed a serious eye condition at age 20, while in London from overwork and not taking care of my health. This eye condition led me on a path of experiencing many different styles of healing and then following on to study Chirokinetics, Breath work (ReBirthing), and deeper into Macrobiotics. I was touched by all the support I received and wished to be there for others in the best ways I knew how.  In this way I found an inner calling to become a healer.
I found a love for gardening while in Alaska as well as working with the children there on projects and adventures. In 2011 I had the opportunity to do the PDC (Permaculture Design Course) in London which was super and did the Permaculture Forest Gardening course too. I have participated and enjoyed working on number of Natural Building projects both in USA and UK. I have been getting a lot out of the studies of NVC from Marshall Rosenberg.
I often travel internationally so look up to see if I am going to be near you
