Over the last 25 years Siobhan has worked in a variety of leadership roles in voluntary and community sectors in Northern Ireland, including most recently leading ARC a learning disability umbrella charity. Alongside the day jobs Siobhan discovered the healing impact of yoga and personal development 15 years ago when life was teaching her some interesting and challenging lessons. As a result Siobhan is passionate about ensuring that a full range of effective healing tools and practices are available to everyone who wishes to use them to support deep healing and a more joyful life. She recently founded the Lighthouse Centre in North Belfast to create a welcoming, healing space, especially for those who may not normally seek out such support.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
