Professional Practitioners at Kawai Purapura

Lindi O’Connor A. Dip.M.T.
Massage and Reflexology

Lindi O’Connor is a Body-Mind Massage therapist with over 30 years experience in the field in various countries. She is certified in Deep Tissue, Relaxation, Reflexology, and Sports and Therapeutic Massage. Lindi has discovered how profoundly our bodies react to stress and stored emotions, a natural result of “everyday life”, and how this can be reduced by touch and massage – combined with an ability to “listen” and feel the body’s pain. “Bones, muscles, and cellular tissues hold memories of emotional events and life’s stress. Through varied massage techniques we release tension and pain, freeing and healing the “embodied mind.”

Annette Sanders
Shamanic Medicine Woman

Annette Sanders is a Medicine Woman, Shamanic Healer, Yoga Teacher, Crystal Sound Therapist, Holistic Bodyworker, Evolutionary Teacher and Ascension Guide who has been working within the spiritual realms and higher dimensions for over 25 years.

Believing in the importance of global community and collaboration, Annette has travelled the world giving private healing sessions, creating bespoke mentoring programmes, and facilitating workshops, that profoundly transforms and awaken others to their true Divine Essence and innate power. Since a child, Annette has been able to interface directly with pure frequency on a multi-dimensional level, although it took many years of internal inquiry, shamanic mentoring, applied wisdom, observation and ultimately self-healing to fully realize the potential of her gifts.Annette is a catalyst for awakening and helping others navigate through this new paradigm of profound transformation we collectively find ourselves in. She has a reputation for walking her talk, using humour whilst being very practical, authentic and direct in her approach to creating easy, yet powerful, practical steps and practices that bring about real and substantial change in her client’s lives.

A bespoke programme can be created specifically for you to address your individual needs on all levels of your being. Taking a combined physical and energetic approach, drawing on many different modalities and guided by her ancestors and light-team, we will start to access and delete cellular blockages, stored trauma, implant mind control programmes, outdated belief systems, repetitive patterning, illness and ancestral and akashic contracts that create and anchor dis-ease within the physical, emotional, and mental bodies.Annette has a somatic approach to yoga and teaches how to communicate with the body’s innate wisdom to reawaken the template of true wellness that exists within each of us. This is a time of greater soul embodiment and unity.
