EDWARD PIKE

FOUNDER, MENTOR & FACILITATOR

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 'Live Your Potential' afternoon workshops and the Thrive Programme.

Joshua's story is an amazing example of how much life can change when you connect with your true self.  He attended our 3rd Thrive Programme, which kickstarted a powerful and life-changing journey of self-discovery. Through the process he discovered his powerful gift for healing and helping others; he’s now a Meditation coach and a Shamanic Practitioner.

He runs the Thrive Circles, assists at the ‘Live Your Potential’ workshops and supports with the leadership of the organisation.

Simon is our Social Enterprise wise man, Trustee extraordinaire and in-house poet. Sparks flew when he attended one of our workshops back in 2016, so much so that he’s now an integral part of the organisation. 

He supports the leadership circle with his 15+ years of experience in Social Enterprises (his previous venture went on to support the building of 1,000 dams!);  his Isle of Man down-to-earth-ness and sense of humour. He inspires us continuously with his creative endeavours.
