Dawn aka Shaki
After a 20 year accounting and international finance career, sitting at a desk in front of a computer working for corporate giants I had a change of heart, not to mention my back ache. Sound Familiar?
Wow, there is a whole magical world to be discovered and embraced and so that is what I opted to do, get out and about and find a new way of living. My life involves lots of listening, lots of questioning, lots of tea drinking and pondering on the ideas that are presented to me. I also have a lot of fun in my role of creating The Sound Temple as a safe place for people to come and be involved in a community of like-minded people.
I have been married for nearly 20 years and have an amazing family life living among the jarrah trees in the Perth Hills with my family.
In 2009 I completed my advanced yoga training with Byron Yoga Centre and during my work there I found my love for teaching yoga, but what makes my heart sing is Kirtan. I am so privileged to be partaking in my Bhakti service under the divine guidance Kim Echammaal Coull and Harishakti.
We had the opportunity of becoming the new custodians of the former Quiet Cone in 2013 and have spent the last few years creating a nurturing soft place for people to step off their busy days and take time out to attend one of our healing sessions or workshops.
Another passion of mine is to read Tarot and I find it’s another way to help people facilitate change in the areas of their lives that are limiting them from being completely in touch with who they want to be. This ancient craft of Tarot is such a wonder and it never ceases to amaze me of the incredible ways we can use this art to assist in healing ourselves.
I am currently studying Astrology, music and the harmonium and feel that these interests will add to my toolkit of life.
You will meet me at one of your visits to The Sound Temple, welcome to our beautiful place where kookaburra’s laugh and bring spirit, where my beautiful children play and create memories and where the red tail black cockatoo’s call and catch our attention almost every single day.
