Karen Maloney is my name and I set up Whole Wellbeing Project as a sharing platform to help us all live our best lives, to help us to become more conscious in every moment.

I believe we must function as a whole (mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually) in order to be fulfilled and find true contentment in our lives. We must look at ourselves holistically as each of these parts are interdependent and interconnected.

Looking back I think I was always a very intuitive child but that doesn’t necessarily mean that I followed my intuition or knew what I wanted to do or what my life purpose was.

After college I moved to Mexico and spent a number of years travelling on and off, all around the world. It wasn’t planned but I kept meeting amazing people and kept on going. It was the most extraordinary experience of my life. Travel really instills an appreciation and resilience for life.

Events in my life since then (my Dad’s passing from cancer and my ex suffering from depression) have caused me to become even more conscious of my health and wellbeing, how it’s all connected and how the society we live in plays a part.

I don’t claim to be an expert and I don’t want to mislead anyone. My mission is to share useful information that will help us to connect to our true selves, wake up to a more purposeful life and create a wellbeing movement. Whether it be personal discoveries or ancient healing modalities, these are my musings so far in this journey called life. Some of these words may resonate with someone, somewhere!

I love learning and developing new skills. I currently work as an Events Manager. I’ve been attuned to Reiki & Seichem Healing Level 1 (hoping to do Level 2 soon). I studied a Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation, an Advanced Diploma in Organic Cosmetic Science and a Certificate in Organic Anti-Ageing Skincare. I did a TV Presentation, Direction and Production Course, set up BalconyTV in Galway (and produced & presented it) and I also used to do a monthly book club on TodayFM Radio and host my own Community Radio Programme. Always looking for new experiences!

Ageing is a privilege we should all embrace and make the most of each present day.
