Welcome in your inner Divine, Love, Calm.

Updated: Nov 19, 2023

Discover more about me, the soul behind, in front and inside of DLC! My wellness concept, how it came to life and what you can take from it to support your next steps into authentic living.

If you’ve checked out my website you may have already learned a bit about me. But let me properly introduce myself and tell you more about DivineLoveCalm (DLC). My name is Dani, I am currently on what I like to call…

“A Divine Sabbatical” (Oh yes, cheesy, I know and I went there!)


200hour qualified yoga teacher at One Yoga, Koh Phangan
Just qualified as a 200hr Hatha Yoga Teacher!


Before you start thinking, "What on earth is she talking about?" I have a wicked sense of humour and love to see the controversial side of things with a twist of optimism, a pinch of love, and a whole lot of sarcasm. It’s that British banter, one might say. Although ask my mum, she’s probably going to say how dedicated, serious and deep I am...yet here I am ready to bare it all!

Aren't we all a little Yin and Yang though? Or as Meredeth Brooks would sing...I'm a little bit of everything all rolled into one! I'm a bitch, I'm a lover, I'm a child, I'm a mother, I'm a sinner, I'm a saint and guess what? I do not feel ashamed. (Go on, sing it, you know you want to.)

I appreciate those who understand and resonate with me, YOU are who I am talking to, writing for and serving. Ultimately, isn't it what we all desire - to belong and be accepted for who we truly are in this world? I'm not referring to superficial attempts to fit in by conforming to societal expectations. I mean the real deal, where we can be our authentic selves - the good, the bad, and the ugly - and still be understood and accepted. I wonder how many of us can truly embrace our unique quirks and qualities and live in our true light. Yet, at the same time, acknowledge the need to work on ourselves and make tough, conscious choices to create a fulfilling life, rather than just going through the motions. It's a process for sure and a life commitment to excellence, in my humble opinion, and it takes grit, awareness, willingness and arming yourself with a whole lot of tools to navigate being HUMAN. 


So I stand here today, just a girl, in front of the world asking you to love me! IFYNYK! If you don't then you best go watch this.


All jokes aside, I am now sharing these tools that paved the way for me to fully embrace myself, or try at least! Reiki, Essential Oils, Crystals, Mediation, Sound Healing and Coaching are my go-to’s and I am going to open up and discuss them through my blog for you to discover more and discern what might work for you.


I am on my journey of self-discovery, authentic and fearless living and I'm encouraging you to join me. In the words of Ram Das....let's walk each other home.


(P. S. Fun fact) I recently discovered in a book I was gifted by the talented author, Brian Gruber, whom I was privileged to meet here in The Sanctuary, a story for another day. But in his book, which you can buy in the link here, it was fascinating to me that in an interview about someone's life experience in Koh Phangan, they had hung out with Ram Das, probably in some wild full moon parties back in his hay day. It is always fascinating to me that we often put people on pedestals but we are all just out here doing our best, and Ram Das will mostly be known to people for his spiritual side rather than partying on Koh Phangan. What a world!



If this is getting your juices flowing, take that as you wish, then read on or better yet sign up for my weekly insights. You can also follow me on Instagram and check out my website to stay updated on future events, deals and retreats. I am looking forward to connecting with you.

Keeping it simple

DLC is more than a website to get a 1-1 Reiki or coaching session, I believe we need more than this, we need community, communication and a curated toolbox to help us. We need safe spaces, to explore, learn, grow and reinvent yourself as you evolve, if that's what you want. DLC is a community in the making, where there will be opportunities to connect with like-minded souls through retreats, events and group work. Don't get me wrong, I love working 1-1 with my clients and seeing their journey, this will never change. However, reflecting on my life and noticing where I thrived and where I barely survived, it was highly influenced by the communities I was a part of. You know the saying, you become the average of the five people you spend the most time with...who are you spending your time with? Is it uplifting, positively challenging and growth-oriented or is it trauma bonding and holding you back?


Educator turned healer or was it always within?

Education has been my lifelong passion. As corny as it sounds, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher since my early years in school which helped shape me into the person I am today. My school provided me with a safe environment to grow, learn, and make friends, which was particularly important given the chaos at home. I found comfort in knowing what to expect, and my nervous system could regulate. (Of course, I didn't know this at the time, I just knew school was safe, fun and loving.)


My own experiences growing up with adversity, combined with studying child development, helped me to heal and gain a profound understanding of what it's like to grow up against the odds. Despite the challenges, I was fortunate to have a wonderful education, parents who were honest and transparent and overall wonderful beings and stable grandparents. All of these factors contributed to my upbringing and makes me feel like one of the lucky ones.


Over the years, I have come to realize that the skills, experiences, and gifts I possess have always been a fundamental part of who I am. I had always shared my gifts back into the classroom and my leadership. Embracing this and stepping out of my career was a bold move, to say the least, if not a little scary. But it has allowed me to connect with like-minded individuals who resonate with me on a deep level. If you are seeking guidance on your journey towards embracing your authentic, whole, gorgeous self, get in touch to book your free discovery call or book a session directly. Together we will discover your true potential.


With Love,

Dani
