Gillian O’Shea

If it is true that we all have a life purpose then I think I can say I am blessed to be living mine.

I love nature, pottering around barefoot in the garden, growing things, hugging trees, assisting less fortunate, dabbling in Alchemy and alternative healing.

So, in pursuit of happiness, purpose and contentment,  I said goodbye to the corporate world in 2012 to heal, garden and teach.

Nine years ago I became a Specialised Kinesiologist and massage therapist and in 2012 I also completed a design certificate in Permaculture to become a consultant. I started Terra Madre SA in January 2012 but only left the corporate world in October 2012. In 2014 I attended Al Gores Climate Reality Leader training to become a representative and educate people on what we can do to slow down climate change and take better care of our planet. After all, she is the only one we have.

 I am loving this journey and am so blessed to have wonderful customers.

Terra Madre means Mother Earth in Italian. My purpose is to live, and run my business, in harmony with our planet.
