ABOUT ME: Di Granger, Lifelong Learning and Magic of Mosaics
I left the corporate world in 2019 to live my dream … live-work-play, happy life in Toodyay.
Toodyay is a gorgeous country town just over an hour from Perth. I desired a life at a different pace with a much bigger focus on feeding my wellbeing.
I certainly had no idea the absolute bliss this would provide and therein lies a key life lesson – dare to follow your dreams.
ORGANISATIONAL DEVELOPMENT (OD) CONSULTANT
Working in the Corporate sector as an organisational development consultant has been my life.
The hustle for new business, the design and development of various programs to meet the identified needs within an organisation, the scheduling of programs throughout a 12 month and sometimes longer period, aligning the content to contemporary thinking and current research and ensuring the design engages with the participants and provides not only a wonderful experience but the desire to effect change at a personal, team, organisational and often community level.
This may sound tricky, but when you commit your life to your craft, it is glorious.
MAGIC OF MOSAICS
I have found this again with mosaics. I have discovered the perfect creative activity for enhancing wellbeing and have aptly named it the ‘Magic of Mosaics’.
Yes, it is a truly magical activity. I have a shed. It has a ‘she-SHED’ feel. That is, everything I have ever learnt in OD just magically happens in the shed.
It’s not just you get to create something stunningly beautiful, that’s a given.
It’s the mindfulness, meditative feel, it’s the meaning and clarity around ‘things’ that just seems to happen, it’s exploring life, love and the universe (seems to go hand in hand with meaning and clarity) and the story, there is always story.
The process is magical, it absolutely feeds your soul and nourishes your wellbeing.
You can engage in great conversation or simply enjoy the quiet. The choice is always yours.
When you come to a session, there is always (bottomless cups of) herbal tea, water and fresh fruit to keep you hydrated and nourished. If you stay for 2 sessions or a day, light tapas is offered also.
Or you can take the opportunity and wander the main street of the Town of Toodyay and immerse yourself into some of the great hospitality on offer.
Is this resonating and calling you?
