Hello Beautiful Souls!!

In recent times, my husband (Dwayne) & I have been on quite the journey of self discovery ... one where our own mortality and what our 'future' looked like was explored ... 
Uncertainty about how we would get by in our Retirement led us to one of the most exciting decisions we've ever  made ... We bought a Bus!!

We called her 'Utopia' and the lengthy process of converting her from a City route bus to our dream home ... (all DIY) ... began.

That was November 2019.

Fast forward to March 2020 ... Covid-19 has changed life as we knew it ... 
(I am of the personal opinion that the World will be a much better place ... Patience, Kindness, Gratitude and Love will be much more widespread) ... in the meantime, we live as we need to ... for many of us apart from loved ones.

We both found ourselves in the Centrelink lines, along with so many others in Hospitality and Retail ... unsure of what our immediate futures held in store!!
We were fortunate enough to have supplies and could continue with our bus build.  The question came up ... WHY were we 'waiting' for retirement to live in our beautiful bus?  Of course financially, we're not quite ready to retire.  BUT ... we can live in our dream home ... Dwayne still has his job to go back to ... and I can do what I LOVE ... design ... create ... help others!   I will be available for private coaching sessions ... I will have my beautiful jewelry designs available for purchase online here at Utopian Living and will be thrilled to be a part of the Artisan Markets Community ... all while living the 'Bus Life' dream ... living a much more sustainable lifestyle with the ability to change our 'view' at the turn of a key!

For now, our time and energy is going into getting Utopia built out and ready to live in ... I have been busy each night designing and will be so excited to launch my first collection later this year under the banner of 'Utopian Designs By Michele' ... 

I'm so excited to be following my dreams again ... EXACTLY what my seminars and workshops are all about!!

 ... a little more about those now ...

I am committed to helping others empower themselves  on a journey of self-discovery through my powerful seminars and workshops. These are designed to help you learn how to manage, improve and reclaim your life.  We do this by using tools, tips and strategies designed to re-set your sense of direction, sense of self worth and belief ... and help you to achieve success.
This is my Passion.
I conduct these seminars and workshops in a relaxed, supportive and nurturing way ... whilst taking an assertive, empowering and motivational approach. 
If you have invested your time, energy and money into attending one of my events ... we both need to be giving the outcome our very best shot!  This means no excuses ... we are there for one reason ... and that is to help YOU reclaim your life!!

My mission:

... To turn your Dreams into Goals  ... and your Goals into Reality ... Creating Transformation in your Life!!

Stress ... The Silent Killer

So often we tend to get so caught up in the 'busy'ness of life that we don't recognise the warning signs that stress is taking a toll on our physical health, mental well-being and relationships with those closest to us!

Stress is a silent killer in it's truest form ... and yet is such a major player in lives today ... Learning to manage stress, along with learning some valuable tools to maintain a stress free life can improve not only your health, but greatly improve your happiness, your relationships, and your ability to truly enjoy life!!

Using meditation, along with some powerful tips and tricks to manage stress changed my own life from one of ongoing ill health, anxiety and depression to one of peace, calm, fabulous health, improved self esteem and wonderful relationships!

The incredible transformation in my own life was the inspiration I needed to truly follow my heart and to help others to do the same.

From this combination of experience and training in helping others on their own journey to living a calmer, less stressful and much more enjoyable life ... Utopian Living was born.

Originally based in Wauchope,  NSW .... we made the move north to the Northern Gold Coast region early in 2016.

In June 2017, we made the decision to return 'Home' to the beautiful Hastings region!

At this stage, Meditation,  Chakradance and Life Coaching sessions are by appointment only.

I have been truly humbled by the beautiful people I have had the pleasure of helping over the years, and look forward to sharing many more years following my passion!

.. As quoted by one of the lovely guests at Utopian Living in Wauchope .... "When I signed up for meditation classes with Michele, I thought it would just be another meditation class... it's so much more .... it's a healing journey... I am so thankful!"

I invite you to take the time to explore my website... I look forward to meeting you very soon!
