Clare O'Sullivan

I am a survivor of childhood domestic violence. I have been hungry for peace, harmony and safety all my life and my Sense Of Life work is the culmination of that exploration and journey.  I have been involved in pioneer work for many years in the fields of care and education and the cultivation of compassion.  I am certified with The Centre For Nonviolent Communication. I am the happiest girl in the world if I have an animal in my arms, as in the photo.


My background is that I was born and raised in Southern Ireland.  My father was a violent alcoholic, and I loved him so much and wanted him to love me.  This, mostly, wasn't possible for him.  I have had a lifelong question - what happened to my father that this was the only way he could tell us he was in pain and what could have been done to support him and to restore peace in our home? I am now dedicating my life to living and teaching the practice of self compassion, which in my experience is the key to peace in our times. I pray that the ancestral line of violence is diminishing through me to the best of my ability in any given moment.
