About Lorraine



My passion is to give back by sharing from my heart the appropriate wisdom gained




The years have included a 33 year marriage, two children and three grandchildren, overseas travel – spiritual adventures with much learning, academic study and  working with my husband to clear the land and build two homes literally from the ground up. Also two experiences of cancer, the last resulting in the removal of a lung which as you can imagine, brought much change in my values and levels of gratitude for life.

There has been the gift of wisdom fostered through interactions with many, many students, clients, affiliates and fellow travelers and woven through all of this has been the benefit of a regular meditation practice.


I now find myself with a passionate commitment to give back through the Wisdom Heart – Golden Footprints project


To begin what feels like the culmination of my work, which is the re-empowerment of mature aged women within all walks of life to acknowledge the innate value of their life feels a profound gift and blessing.

‘Hold your dignity gently.’
