Why settle for mediocrity when you can have extraordinary?
Lorraine Blackley

Lorraine Blackley

I began my adult life training and working as a Registered Nurse.  It was a job that allowed me to travel the world and explore life in many places.  It also enabled me to develop a great understanding of people.  But there was no fire in my belly.  I searched for something more.  Looking back I see I was deeply depressed and stuck – not knowing how to make life happen or how to get out of my rut.

Over time and through convoluted means, I found my way into my second career as an entrepreneurial visionary and educator of personal and professional empowerment programs.

I discovered how to apply a creative process to bring about what I wanted in my personal and professional life.  This was where everything changed.  My imagination became the vehicle for making life happen.  The freedom.  The possibilities.  The Joy.

So Now

I challenge the current model of our society where so many people are unhappy doing jobs they don’t enjoy. We all have unique gifts and talents and it is possible for everyone in any community to find or create a role doing what they love.  It is possible for everyone to make their unique contribution to the whole. I am passionate about supporting people to shed the layers of conditioning that keep them stuck and small, to navigate times of transition and find or create uplifting forms of livelihood. I do this practically through my creative process consulting, mentoring, programs, retreats, writing and speaking. I support people to step outside the square, be creative, courageous and entrepreneurial. To develop meaningful and sustainable livelihoods that are nourishing and fulfilling for your heart, soul and community.
