Lynne BakerOUR PEOPLE
Lynne uses an innovative approach in her work, bringing together her qualifications in psychology, screen, and business: using awareness, film and dramatic techniques, she opens up conversations.
From a young age, Lynne has been drawn to the myths and legends of diverse cultures and has explored a number of creative roles in theatre and films. She continued to delve into culture and values in her Master of Business Administration, investigating organisational myths, business culture and the journey of lifelong vocation.
Most recently her preoccupations are:
- Dreams and their multidimensional manifestations in everyday life
- Childhood dreams and their ability to guide us to an authentic self
- Goddess Spirituality and the beautiful healing power it evokes.
Walk in love and beauty
Trust the knowledge that comes through the body
Speak the truth about conflict, pain and suffering
Take only what you need.
Carol Christ, The Rebirth of the Goddess
As a clinical supervisor and consultant for over 20 years, Lynne enjoys supervising curious practitioners from health, education, business, theatre and the arts.
Some examples of her creative work include “Death, Dying and Ecstasy”, “Alive and Out There” and “Article 3”, a film which addresses fundamental principles of human rights. Lynne explores the diversity of marginalised people and lived experience. Her focus ranges from individuals to groups and socio-political concerns and crosses countries, cultures and hemispheres.
Lynne is also an avid traveller and has explored many mythical places and sacred sites around the world. She would probably rather be driving through the Irish countryside, searching for the mountain where Halloween was first celebrated 2500 years ago. But she can have her conversations from anywhere, so don’t let that deter you. If you are interested in dreaming up a new life or deconstructing your childhood dream, Lynne is the creative force you need.
