She’s also a sacred artivist: using the power of Art and Soul to heal broken hearts, build communities, and change paradigms. She turns education inside-out by learning from (and with) African indigenous communities.
By dancing in the borderlands between academic research, feminist spirituality, Indigenous wellness traditions, social activism and the arts, Gemma has uncovered the roots of motivation – the four elements of personal and organisational change programs that actually work.
At the heart of all four elements is the deepest secret of Soul-Deep Motivation:
The Four Elements are:
Reconnecting with Nature: understanding ecosystems, experiencing joy, conserving habitats
Reconnecting with Creativity: opening to inspiration, having fun with arts, trying new things
Reconnecting with Community: learning to listen, celebrating diversity, resolving conflicts
Reconnecting with Emotions: recognising your feelings, embodying them, finding the gifts in them
All these different ways of reconnecting can empower people to find their Power, Passion and Purpose… leading them to those places, spaces, activities or practices that light them up inside and make them feel fully alive, or, in other words, to Deep Love and wellbeing.
