Prior to COVID, advances in technology and work-life patterns were bringing us to near-epidemic levels of burnout in many sectors.
Depression and loneliness were leading causes of global disability; outstripping cancer and heart disease.
COVID has intensified these patterns and made it impossible to put off addressing our mental health and wellbeing any longer.
Nurturing our capacity to adapt, adjust, change and grow, sustained through mindfulness training so we may respond effectively to life’s challenges and crises.
Growing a flexible identity and growth mind-set, grounded in self-integrity. This integrity involves learning to deeply listen to our authentic voices as well as encouraging those of others.
To flourish means our values and beliefs seed meaning and purpose in our lives. These values connect us with caring communities and cultures that nourish, respect, and inspire us to live into our best selves.

Hi there, I’m Deirdre, Wellbeing Anthropologist, Leadership Coach, Certified Yoga and Meditation, Mama to Ella and Rosie and Advisor on The Wellbeing Project, a catalyst organization that promotes the inner development of social change makers around the world. Everything in this program is something I believe in and is part of my personal practice. With sustained commitment, these practices can bring deep healing and nourishment in these challenging times.
I’ve considered myself a “beginner yogi” for over 20 years and have never felt more at home then when practicing with Deirdre. I’ve met just a handful of true “healers” on my journey and consider her among the best. Each time I practice I am grateful for the gifts that she helps me to access within my body, mind and spirit. This Fall I participated in her Compassionate Wisdom course, which was rich with relevant content to help navigate these uncertain times. When I work with Deirdre I find Center. She is a gift!
