facilitator, clinical psychologist, process artist, dance-performance artist,
ontological coach and parent.


Thank you for a creative and profound process.
The workshop activated a real and vital but neglected archetype. We were led graciously into seeing through a different window and then embodying that vision, sharing it with each other and taking it out into the world. The elders who we are, became an empowerment and a privilege.
The experience you crafted for us all was huge! I want to thank you. I want to acknowledge your mastery in shaping the whole workshop. I was moved. What a privilege.

+ What else do people say?

We need more real voices, speaking from a place of embodied and experiential wisdom to act as a bridge and facilitate our journey from where we currently are to where we need to be environmentally. This is the big work. Thank you.


A stunning insight into perspectives and understanding concepts which are difficult to express verbally but easier to explore non-verbally.

I just want to thank you, Nobonke, for your style, your approach, your gentleness, sharp thinking and depth of awareness. It has been a great gift for me. I hope to do more with you.

You are a true artist, a watcher, a listener, a feeler, a creative giver and a receiver. And it is these characteristics that make your work so profound.

Such fascinating new avenues of work.

Untangling philosophical, material and spiritual issues was brilliantly done, Nobonke.

I had a sense I was in expert, intensely compassionate and deeply intelligent hands. You really listen right down and use all contributions, however humble, wordy or obtuse. Nothing is wasted in your facilitation.

It is an extremely vast subject and I commend Nobonke on what she was able to do in a short time.

I have a sense of myself being ‘bigger’, ‘deeper’, more connected to all parts of myself, as well as to my world and life.

A very valuable way of slowing down and learning how to think differently about vital issues.

At the time of Pandemia, Conscious Ageing is wanted in order to be present for those younger than ourselves who now, more than ever, ask for guidance.

I walked away with a personal signature of myself, embodied and intimate, yet empowered to be available to the world.
