An inter-disciplinary practitioner,
Rosalind's experience and expertise
is primarily focused in the area of human potential.
Passionate about ideas and especially curious about the stories we tell ourselves and the tales we tell others, it was this curiosity that led me to take a Post Graduate Diploma in Humanistic Psychology entitled Leadership, Facilitation & Coaching, (2006 - 2008).
Training originally as a production thrower and decorator in a small studio pottery in Lincolnshire, the arts have been an integral part of my life, interwoven since my early years with a range of salaried and voluntary roles as diverse as teaching women self defence through to driving 7.5 ton trucks! However it was working for 13 plus years in event and project management in a variety of settings that led me to become increasingly interested in how we are as human beings, the identities we create, and the structures we design for ourselves.
These areas of interest, coupled with becoming a parent, led directly to my post grad training, and my further explorations in the field of personal and professional development. Curious about where individual and organisational change intersect with the social and political, and where our relationship with our inner world affects our relationship with the outer one, interested in exploring the cultural narratives we construct, from the day to day minutiae to the grander themes that sometimes take on mythic proportions.
Increasingly called to explore social change through the role of an interdisciplinary practitioner, performer and social artist, I am inspired by this definition from Jean Houston.
"Social Artistry is the art of enhancing human capacities in the light of social complexity.
It seeks to bring new ways of thinking, being and doing to social challenges in the world."
Combining all of this with my deep love of the natural world, this is what I bring to the table.
Described by others as insightful, plain-speaking, risk-taker, courageous and deep thinking, I sometimes describe myself as an edge-walker, which according to permaculture is where all the interesting things happen . . .
