Olivia Clarke (Retired)
Olivia spent two years at Art School (Wimbledon and Central St.
Martin's) before transferring her degree to Bristol, where she got a
2:1 in Humanities. On graduating, she worked for two Art Galleries and an Interior Designer, while living in London, as well as being involved with a Creative Writing Forum. She became interested in the creative healing arts and contemplative life. With a novelist friend, she made a three-part broadcast for BBC Radio's "Seeds of Faith", exploring Walking as an act of Pilgrimage. A move to South Wales, where she had grown up as a child, led her to the Rowan Tree, an ecumenical retreat centre for contemplative practice and The Saint John's Bible, where she worked for the first few years of the project as PA to Donald Jackson.
For the past 15 years she has been a freelance Shiatsu Therapist and Yoga Teacher and more recently has become a mother of two.
