About Ann Manning
As a teenager I wanted to understand what makes us tick, particularly in the emotional realm.
I studied psychology at university, was awarded a B Sc (Hons) in 1974, then worked with children and community groups, using drama as a tool for self-discovery.
I also taught for a time in the Drama Department at the University of Newcastle.
When I started meditating in 1981 my world was transformed; I experienced wholeness.
The philosophy underlying the meditation also landed deeply for me.
Since then, the study and practice of meditation has continued to nourish and enrich my life.
I was introduced to homeopathy after becoming a mother,
and experienced first hand some remarkable turnarounds in my children's health.
I was fascinated to learn that, in homeopathy, the emotional & mental state
of the patient is often pivotal in selecting a homeopathic medicine.
Soon I was studying homeopathy and graduated with an Adv Dip Hom in 2002.
I have now been practising in Sydney for over 20 years, and continue to study
with international homeopathic masters such as Rajan Sankaran.
It is very satisfying to hear from clients that not only have their physical complaints
improved with homeopathy, but they also experience a greater sense of well-being.
I offer individual consultations, and teach an introductory course ‘Homeopathy at Home’.
I have also lectured to degree students at Endeavour College of Natural Health.
In 2018 I was introduced to Mindful Self-Compassion – it made my heart sing!
I completed teacher training that year and now teach regular courses based on MSC.
I also apply the principles of MSC and other mindfulness & somatic based processes
in one-one one mindfulness training sessions: Unravelling Unworthiness.
The intention of all these mindfulness trainings is to equip the participants
with resources to support deep healing.
If you've read this far I assume you are interested. Please get in touch.
I'd love to work with you, and support you to explore new perspectives.
