EDWARD PIKE

FOUNDER & ALIGNMENT MENTOR

Ed's our main group facilitator and our very own alignment expert. He's been living with HIV since 2009; his diagnosis kickstarted a whole journey of transformation which led him to eventually  support others to awaken to their true awesome nature.

He's our main facilitator at the moment: he runs the Open Day Afternoons, Thrive Evenings and the Thrive Programme.
