Libby Kinna is a writer, explorer, traveller and holistic counsellor.
With over a decade of professional experience in training and personal development and with interests in psycho-spiritual transformation, emotional intelligence and holistic alternative therapies she has created supportive transformational environs and cultures for both individuals and organisations through her business ‘Blue Alchemy Centre‘.
At the end of 2018 she graduated with her Diploma of Transformational Holistic Counselling, a unique course accredited with the Australian Holistic Healers & Counsellors Association (AHHCA).
She has a keen interest in transgenerational impact and healing. This enabling her to tie in her life long interest in ancestral research and discovery with counselling.
Libby explores the interrelationship between human and spirit. Capturing the dynamic of the inner and outer world and the intersection between the two lies at the essence of her work which she brings forth through various creative mediums.
Inspired by the rich red earth of Central Australia, the rugged coastline of the Indian Ocean, the rolling mountain ranges of the Grampians and the ancient land of The Kimberley’s her work is infused with the spirit of the lands. Her connection with the land is expressed through her dot paintings and capturing the essence photographically.
Connection to land feeds and nurtures connection to self. This is the primary relationship.
Having recently discovered free-form weaving and undertaking training with Sky Carter, Libby is relishing the tactile and textural nature of this fibre based weaving art form and the healing, comfort and fluidity it offers.
The written word…
Libby’s written works explore the impact of human loss, separation and disconnection from source. They delve into how to take these experiences deeply inward, to heal, transform and finding your truth and way forward.
Through her creative non-fiction works she writes of the influence and impact the past can have on our present through ancestral ties, and how conscious and enlightened travel can offer fuel for letting go of the past resulting in personal transformation.
Libby has a strong affinity with the works of Beatrix Potter, Edgar Degas, Van Gogh and Indigenous artists in Australia.
A keen historian, Libby finds direction through the work and lives of Ancient Greek Philosophers, the Italian Renaissance period, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, Winston Churchill, Carl Rogers, and Joseph Campbell.
In modern day, the work of Brene Brown, Emilie Wapnick, Elizabeth Gilbert, Dan Goleman, Diana Gabaldon to name a few fuel her inner fire.
Music is an important ingredient in her life and she loves listening to an eclectic mix of artists – Coldplay, Barbra Streisand, Angus & Julia Stone, Carole King, Fleetwood Mac and Lorde to name a few.
Over time her works will be published here. Stay in touch by signing up for her newsletter.
