I have spent 15 years working in the ‘social change’ space – mainly in capacity building including with formal NGOs like Oxfam GB, INTRAC and Freedom from Torture. I am a co-founding member of the Training Providers Forum, which shares best practices in training provision to the international development and humanitarian sector.
In 2014, I co-founded the Mindfulness and Social Change Network with Luke Wreford which is a community of practice exploring the intersection between mindfulness and social change. The network is international, and now has around 400 members. As well as running the network, I run eight week courses, drop ins, mindfulness mornings and monthly sits in Oxford UK.
For the last five years, I’ve worked as a trainer, advisor and fundraiser for Ecodharma/the Ulex Project in Spain which train grassroots activist and change makers from across Europe. I train on Mindfulness and Social Change, Transformative Collaboration, and Thinking Diversity Radically. We are currently working on a European, Erasmus funded project with a consortium of grassroot environmental organisations on how blended and transformative learning approaches can support education around transitioning to a socially just and ecologically sustainable future.
I work at Makespace a co-working space for freelancers, charities and social enterprises in Oxford.
