I am inspired by amazing, heart centred people who generously share their natural gifts and talents. They help us to live more fully and to experience the joy and wonder of life.
“I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.” – Joseph Campbell
I believe in sharing the good stuff so here is an evolving list of the heart led practitioners/individuals/projects that I love and trust.
>>> THE ADVENTUROUS LIFE PROJECT <<<
“We are never more fully alive, more completely ourselves, or more deeply engrossed in anything, than when we are at play.” – Charles Schaefer
The manifesto at The Adventurous Life Project – founded by Jacqui Holth and Richard Old – is to bring together a tribe who are adventurous at heart, recognise the power of play and understand that adventure reveals grit, resilience, and the ability to overcome challenges in all aspects of life.

>>> TOM CRONIN – THE STILLNESS PROJECT <<<
The Stillness Project has a mission to bring the very essence of who we are back into our lives … STILLNESS. The Stillness Project vision is to unite millions of minds across the globe, all connected in peace, harmony and stillness.
Tom Cronin, founder of The Stillness Project believes that we have all the technology, all the information, all the gadgets and hype-stimulation, but one thing is missing, Stillness. He believes that the portal to access this stillness is meditation. Tom spent 26 years as a broker in finance and turned to meditation to help manage the symptoms of stress in his job, he has now devoted his life to teaching meditation.
Tom offers meditation classes, retreats, speaker events and on-line meditation programmes. Tom offers the world’s first teen meditation programme on-line. As a father of teens, Tom believes in empowering the youth of the world to discover their greatness. Teens are experiencing more stress and overwhelm than ever before and he believes that stress is limiting teenagers from experiencing the lightness and joy of life.
My daughter, now 13, loved the experience of Tom’s 14 day teen-meditation programme and continues her practice.

Tom’s latest project is the creation of feature film called “The Portal” due for release in 2019. Tom is also a keynote speaker at the next Mind Heart Connect event in May, 2019.
>>> MIND HEART CONNECT <<<
The inaugural Mind Heart Connect Event was held in 2017 and showcased world class speakers in the mind-body-heart arena including Dr Joe Dispenza, Dr Lori Leyden, Dr David Hamilton, Dr Peta Stapleton and Brad Yates.
Combardis was a proud sponsor and supporter of this event in 2017 and we are looking forward to the 2019 event.
MHC brings together a matrix of heart led experts in evidenced-based practices supporting the mind-body-heart connection in a transformation forum. The MHC vision – to inspire personal and community wellness and resiliency. Hearts were certainly opened at this event and minds blown, the energy was palpable.
Dr Peta Stapleton and Kate Helder co-founded the event and the subsequent MHC foundation. MHC is a vehicle to showcase how clinical tools (including EFT) can be used in the community and therapy spaces. The MHC intention is that the facilitation of large scale events supported by smaller workshops will foster a movement of leaders who will plant and nurture the seeds of resiliency in their own communities.
Dr Lori Leyden in partnership with MHC has created Project LIGHT Australia, serving traumatized Aborigine and refugee youth. Lori has worked in Rwanda with African Peace Partners, CBOPE and Never Again Rwanda, serving genocide survivors. She has also worked to support Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown with Nick Ortner and more recently to support the community in Parkland, Florida.
Lori and her team believe that global healing will take place through compassionate, heart-centered experiences that foster the understanding that we are all connected as global citizens desiring the same things – to love and be loved, to live a meaningful life and to have a bright, peaceful future.

I have had the privilege of being involved in Lori’s heart led healing programme “The Grace Process” – both in a workshop format and on-line. If you are looking for a new paradigm for growing and healing I truly recommend Lori’s ‘graceful’ approach to creating a meaningful and inspiring life. >>> The Grace Process
