Patricia has been a pioneer in organizing events and seminars to activate awareness of health and consciousness in Australia. In 1987 she created the first Directory of Natural Health Therapists: the Blue Pages in Western Australia. This led to the establishment of the first Conscious Living Expo in August 1988 and in June 1989 the publication of the first edition of Conscious Living Magazine. In 1997 she established Conscious Living On-Line with a Resource Directory for services, products and articles. Educated at Australian National University Patricia achieved a Bachelor of Arts with honours in Asian Studies in 1973 .
The inspiration for Conscious Living came out of the years she studied with the spiritual master, known as Osho who was based in Poona, India from 1978 to 1981 and the subsequent 7 years she was involved with managing the Osho community’s projects in India and Australia. During these years she gained enormous knowledge and experience of the body-mind connection to health and wellbeing. Through her training in meditation, bodywork and pioneering energy therapies, she came to the realization that changing the world is only possible when we shift our consciousness. Patricia formed a vision to create a vehicle which could assist in communicating awareness and consciousness to people who are interested in greater health and wellbeing for themselves and for the planet. She created Conscious Living Co-Creations a media company to publish information on natural medicine, food and nutrition , eco-living, consciousness and environmentally sustainable lifestyles.
Patricia’s vision has now evolved to support and nurture the growth of businesses which are contributing to healthy sustainable living via the Heart Conscious Business Hub. To create a global heart conscious business community available to everyone, everywhere.
