ABOUT REV. HELEN GRUBERT
My life and work experience has been very diverse, taking me from the money markets in London having studied Economics, Politics and Quantitative Analysis, to being a regional manager in an international company spearheading the computerising the retail industry at the age of 25. However my love of freedom got the better of me, so I headed off to the South of France, where for a number of years I ran a holiday business in the resort of Cap D’Agde.
I met my husband in 1983 and we were married a year later. I retired from working in the South of France when advanced pregnancy made travel impossible. So life took an interesting turn again as two babies later; motherhood, practicing Sports Injury and Manipulative Therapy, and spiritual questing took up my time. For many years I ran a practice combining spiritual healing, meditation and massage to relax clients enough to pop joints back in to place with minimum impact on the body.
As a Mensan and spiritual teacher, I enjoy using my creativity to craft beautiful and meaningful blessings. The thing that brings me great joy in life is that I get to create magical memories for couples and their guests to cherish. I have many years of experience to draw on which is especially useful with creative ceremony writing. I’m also used to problem solving and enjoy finding viable ‘outside-the-box’ solutions.
My hobbies and interests? Swimming, meditation, travelling, scuba-diving, dancing, creative writing, comedy, all matters spiritual, trees, environmental matters (co-founder of the Unicorn Eco Foundation) complimentary health, healing… but most importantly, I like people.
My passion for research and my own imagination are very useful in creating personal and meaningful ceremonies, personalised blessings and prayers.
