HELLO THERE! I'M DANI
I help others understand and master the art of meditation, transformative inner practice and healing through private coaching, energy sessions, courses and tailored programs for individuals, schools and organisations.
I am a popular keynote speaker, teacher, a published author, podcaster and music producer and I hold regular retreats in Asia and Australia.
My teaching is experiential. I draw from techniques and wisdom of numerous world traditions, current research and my own experience.
My focus is on enabling others to understand and work with the design and function of their mind/body/energy system, to engage in transformative inner practice for maximum performance, self-healing and intuitive living, in other words, to live a Spirited Life!
My mission is to bring meditation and transformative inner experiences to people’s lives, through inspiring courses, content and facilitated experiences. Meditation. Transformation. Inspiration.
I am a happily married mum of two teenage children based in Singapore.
I grew up in a spiritual home and I have a hunger for understanding life and self, that presented from a very young age. This desire for knowledge, combined with a slightly rebellious nature, led me on a journey of exploration and discovery, that continues to this day. I’m not very good at simply swallowing blindly processes and ideologies. I interrogate them and if they resonate I set to the task of mastering them myself.
The wilderness, Yogic tradition, my childhood framework of Catholicism, Shamanic frameworks and Jungian psychology combined with an insatiable appetite for spiritual texts, is what opened me to the dazzling nature of the physical/energy body. These are the methods I teach, because I know them. I believe this is one of the most fabulous aspects of our modern world – we can access many alternative perspectives and frameworks for connecting with Spirit. As I explore and learn more, I bring new ‘technologies’ into my teaching and offerings.
I hold several degrees and enjoyed a fabulous career in my 20s and 30s that ranged between Australia, Europe, and the US in the financial services and property sectors. I have always been compelled to teach and work with human behaviour. My career involved roles in cultural change, communications and marketing, capital raising, learning and development and HR. And always, in my private life, I maintained deep exploration of esoteric practices, spiritual frameworks and meditation techniques.
I am a qualified meditation teacher, through the Awareness Institute, Australia and a member of the Meditation Association of Australia and the International Meditation Teachers’ Association, that recognise the standard of my teaching and program development.
I am a Reiki Master trained and practiced in the Usui Reiki Tradition.

Spirited: A guide to your innate spiritual design to transform your life
Dani reframes meditation as an intentional practice to transform from reactive, to responsive, to expansive, and ultimately to creative living. She helps you remember who and what you really are, to live in active cohesion and co-creation with life and to operate creatively and intuitively in a state of flow. To remember this, is when we heal and come back to our true nature and design. This is being spirited.
