As a child growing up in Yorkshire I worked with horses, seeing to their needs, treating their minor injuries and whenever I had free time (between school and the horses) I roamed the Yorkshire moors collecting bilberries, wildflowers and, to my mother’s utter dismay, frog spawn. At the time, of course, I had no idea I was dabbling with what would become my life’s work – touch, bio-chemistry, natural elements – but it was a wonderful and exciting way to discover the natural world: the essence of plants, the potency of earth matter, the healing power of touch.
For me, it was an intriguing mystery. A mystery waiting to be solved.
That was more than forty years ago and I am still intrigued by the mystery – still in love with the work I do.
