Are you ready to become part of the solution?
Hi, my name is Natalie.
I'm a convert
I'm a big city girl who loves living on my 2 acre permaculture block in New Zealand. I love summer river swims and hanging out with my two boys and ChaCha the dog. I'm a recent yoga convert. My house is always full of people and I love hearing their stories.
I've escaped a corporate career that felt hypocritical and burnt me out. I've escaped eating disorders, years of anxiety and depression and even more years of meandering around not being sure what to do with my life. I've escaped having to compromise my values and integrity just to keep a job. I'm still escaping self-doubt, procrastination, the desire to please and distraction on a daily basis.
My adventures include
Leaving an entire life and career behind and settling into a new country. Implementing a sustainable lifestyle I'm satisfied with, a toxin free household and a healthy diet. Teaching hundreds of people about sustainability. Raising two home-born, Steiner schooled happy boys. Building a wonderful, peaceful co-parenting relationship with their dad and stepmum. Keeping well in challenging circumstances. Oh - and a degree in law.
I'm a believer
I believe in purpose and planet. I believe we collectively have massive environmental and social problems to solve and I believe we can do this by creating fulfillment and happiness that has nothing to do with material stuff: through purpose, belonging and reconnection. I believe in building new systems that make the old ones obsolete. I believe in questioning everything, taking nothing for granted and taking full responsibility for our lives of difference.
