Talk Last Night… thank you to a beautiful group of people

I feel I must offer a very heartfelt thank you to the 25 or so people who joined me for my talk last night, “Is Recovery Enough?”. While I give talks all the time, this was the first time I have organised my own venue and promoted a talk on my own. I really wasn’t sure if I would be talking to an empty room! It was incredibly affirming to find that so many people were interested in what I had to share – and to top that off, the respect, intelligence and compassion that everyone brought to their own sharing was just beautiful.

I left the talk last night with a renewed hope for the possibility of real change in mental health – and within ourselves.

I learnt a lot from all of you and feel I have developed the idea of transformation further as well. I can’t wait for the next time we gather.

Travel gently folks,


PS A big thank you to my nephew Adrian for being a gracious ‘doorman’ for the night.

A new blog – I hope you join the conversation!

Hi Folks,

I’ve been feeling like this site is a little one sided – all my thoughts and none of yours. So I’ve decided to give blogging a go – hopefully creating a space where the conversation comes from lots of different directions.
I‘ll use this blog to share news about what’s going on in mental health, new training and talks, and hopefully to get some dialogue going about new thinking about recovery.

Cheers, Indigo
