Veronica Farmer is an author, professional motivational speaker, healing retreat facilitator and craniosacral therapist who after writing her own story of a sudden miraculous recovery from extensive cancer realised that just about every person she met had a life scar of their own.
Made Beautiful by Scars -real women's stories began as a first book, a compliation of Veronica's story and 22 other women's raw stories, people who have lived through a life scar and become more real, giving and beautiful as a result. These stories leave nothing out - sharing all of the good, bad, vulnerable, embarrassing and painful along with the inspirational. Veronica passionately believes that the scars we experience can be priceless wisdom that brings great healing when we know we can share them out loud!
Veronica is often joined on her inspirational story quest by world class photographer Michele Pocknee. Michele takes many shots for the Made Beautiful by Scars project and is known for her photographic essay series called Men in Nature. Although many contributors send in written inspirational stories to the project, Veronica and Michele also occasionally interview and gather stories live.
Be part of our living story movement! Telling your story is powerfully healing and helps you recover from life wounds and not only that - you heal others! Forget about being a 'good enough writer' and just tell your story as if you were sharing it with a friend. Say it in a letter, say it in a poem, in art, lyrics, video or upto 1500 words. You might just make it into our next Book!
Made Beautiful by Scars story excerpts will appear here and on the Made Beautiful by Scars Facebook page - so that each of our life scar journeys can bring healing and support to many! The intention is to turn these stories into a great series of healing books.
In addition to story-collecting and sharing, Veronica is a powerful motivational speaker who runs international workshops and seminars on Stress-Busting for Health and Life Scar Healing. With 75% of doctor and hospital visits directly attributable to stress, we all must make stress-busting a priority! Veronica joins with the world renowned Mindfulness expert Manish Singh at her next Healing Retreat in beautiful Byron Bay, May 5-7 2017. You do not want to miss this one! Love to See You there!
