Andrea Taylor lives in Nelson New Zealand.
From a young age the word alternative was used by those around her to describe her – unsure of what that meant she carried on being curious and questioning much of what was being presented to her. She attended University to study Psychology, Education and Sociology with the view of becoming an Educational Psychologist. Early on in her university study she realised that university was a lot like school and she was still being told what to think rather than how to think. She left University with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences and a few papers towards a Masters. Since then she has formally studied Yoga and continues to follow a Yogic path today. She has worked a variety of roles, mainly involving supporting people on their career and life pathways. Many of these roles she did while home-schooling and raising her two children.
She values nature and all animals, personal peace and social justice, health and wellness and uses prevention of illness practices to stay well. Andrea has been a vegetation for almost 40 years, largely eating an organic raw, fruit, vegetable and nut based diet. She grows a lot of her own food. She walks in nature daily.
She questions and researches and tends to look beyond the veil that society has drawn, to review the value and place of much what is considered the norm and ‘right’. She believes that true education and what it is to be human involves consciousness and being truly present, and without that consciousness; past and present affects future, personal choice and freedoms. She considers herself a student of life. Self-awareness, self-responsibility, humility, graciousness, compassion and wholeness are qualities she works to develop. Contact me.
