Abstract

This presentation offers a partial autoethnographic narrative of my experience over the decade 2008 -2018. It begins with a random on-holidaydoctors visit and concludes with my current activities as an artist, systemic constellations consultant, peer counsellor / trainer and wellbeing innovator. In 2008 my world was imploding. I had failed to successfully launch a sustainable development-inspired creative consultancy, the economy had gone off a cliff and I had received clinical diagnoses for depression and subsequently Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. In this presentation I explore and reflect upon the multiple cross-cutting strands of my life that led to breakdown, recovery and breakthrough.
