About Colleen Simmonds

Just like the lotus we too have the ability to rise from the mud, bloom out of the darkness and radiate into the world.” – Unknown
In 2014, my life was unexpectedly turned upside down when I developed severe Adrenal Fatigue; a chronic illness of the nervous system triggered by ongoing emotional and environmental stress. Although I didn’t know it at the time, the insurgence of this illness in my life would trigger a much deeper journey into my soul’s true calling.

I decided to listen to my body and trust the deeper yearning within. I resigned from my job as a Counsellor in the Education System, sold all my possessions and bought a one way ticket to Europe. Not knowing where this journey was taking me, I embarked on a mission of travelling the world using my intuition as the guide. Winding my way through Europe, North America and South America, I experienced many places and people that helped expand my spiritual understandings. From the picturesque seaside towns of Northern Italy to the buddhist meditation retreats in the Rocky Mountains, my soul was leading me towards greater truth and self awareness. It was through these explorations I found profound physical and emotional healing and a level of inner strength I never knew existed.

12 months into my world tour, I found myself in the Peruvian Amazon working with local shamans and plant medicines. After an intense month in the jungle something powerful shifted within and I felt called to return to my home town of Adelaide, South Australia. Just like the ‘Hero’s Journey’, I was ready to bring back all I had learned and begin a new chapter. Answering my call to work with others using my creative and spiritual passions is the path that was laid out for me all along.
