Today is the day!
After four months of soulful deep diving and creativity – wrapped in ceremony on the June and October full moons – I am ready to reveal the new look Thrivecraft Maggie Kay and announce the launch of the new format Thrivecraft Academy!
So this is just a brief post to let you see the new branding – so skilfully discovered and expressed by my awesome Essence Unveiled Coach and designer Lynda Mangoro (supported by fab new photos taken by our lovely photographer Tony Cobley).
The website has a way to go yet before all the content and text layout is updated and in keeping with the new colours, fonts and layouts – but I couldn’t wait any longer to show you! (Bit of a lesson in being okay with imperfection!)
I couldn’t wait any longer because today is a special day – it would have been my darling sister Katy’s (in spirit) birthday and I chose the 25 October for the big reveal in her honour.
Next Thursday – on 1 November – I’ll be officially launching the gorgeous new Thrivecraft Academy site and opening applications for this year’s accredited Thrivecraft Coach training programme, but if you can’t wait to see that either, here it is…
Thought I’d share with you the ‘behind the scenes’ story of what I’m going through as I ‘re-brand’ and prepare to re-launch Thrivecraft with Maggie Kay this autumn.
Here are my Facebook posts, videos and photos, sharing how it’s been working with Lynda Mangoro who I commissioned to create my new visual designs.
As you can see – it’s all been rather magical!
Thu 21 Jun – summer solstice
Today, summer solstice 12 noon, I ceremonially begin my Essence Unveiled process with artist and designer, Lynda Mangoro.
I’ve commissioned Lynda to support me in birthing the next phase of Thrivecraft with Maggie Kay with ‘branding and design’, but we much prefer to call it unveiling essence!
Lynda sent me a declaration to read aloud and sign whilst burning the candle and incense and wearing a unicorn pendant she chose and provided.
It was simple but surprisingly powerful! Essence Unveiled has begun!
Thu 28 Jun – full moon
Set all my crystals out for a full moon bathe last night (after a salt water rinse).
Was called to stay awake until 3am with the moon along with my love Patrick.
Only got the inspiration to wash and set out the crystals out at 2am!
The next instalment of Essence Unveiled process with Lynda is dreaming into some questions she poses sitting in the sun this afternoon after a magical full moon night.
And opening up to owning the power of my spiritual and magical nature.

Tue 3 Jul – Deep Dive
Wow such a magical day spent with Lynda at the beginning of our Essence Unveiled process (aka brand design in muggle-speak) that Lynda is creating for Thrivecraft with Maggie Kay.
Chatting with tea, flowers, candles, incense, opening the ceremonial space in the Cider House annex, a beautiful view over the garden, guided meditation, sharing my history and vision for the future, seeing around Thrivecraft Home Hub and meeting Patrick, eating delicious lunch, walking to the river, asking the river for a message, exploring meaningful words (and messages from them), a spontaneous blessing / prayer to close, a letting go ritual to complete in the coming days…
That’s how we roll… 😄
So rich and resonant and inspiring – full of promise! Just knew Lynda was the one to help me articulate Thrivecraft for the relaunch this autumn.
And her husband Mike drove her all the way from Sussex and back today, because she felt it was important to tune into my home and energy. Such amazing service. Thank you! 💕
Fri 13 Jul – new moon
Today, Friday 13 on the new moon and eclipse, I’ll be completing my Essence Unveiled explorations with a letting go ceremony.
Lynda spent the day with me 10 days ago to deeply tune in to me so she can create and design the brand images and visual identity that truly communicates who I am and what I offer for my relaunch in September.
Our last exercise was generating a list of things to let go of, as directed by ‘Freedom’ who was speaking through me. Lynda suggested I make a fire and ceremonially burn the list. I didn’t feel ready on the day – knowing some more was to come.
And oh boy did it come!
Part of the list was about needing to be a good girl, to always get it ‘right’ and not upset people – being attached to being approved of and to people pleasing.
Yet the very next day, I inadvertently displeased a close friend and a huge wave of feeling awful about myself tossed me around for a week.
I dreamt about other friends who I’d also inadvertently upset in the past, including an estranged friend I bumped into and spoke to a couple of weeks ago (which is probably what sparked the whole thing off.)
Fortunately, on Wednesday I had a session booked with my excellent coaching buddy and dear friend Terry Brightwater
He helped me see that I’ve been suppressing feelings of being rejected, criticised, judged and disapproved of my whole life as a ‘survival strategy’.
His advice was to just let myself feel all the hurt and pain I’ve been resisting – and that’s exactly what I did – I felt ghastly, but the world did not fall apart and by yesterday it had all washed through me and gone.
What freedom not to have to work so hard to avoid judgement and disapproval!
I’m not sure why my survival strategy is to avoid being judged as I had a very happy, affirming and loving upbringing, but I do know I am super sensitive to criticism and I’ve been saying for a while I’d like to heal and release that.
Perhaps it belongs to a past life. I relate to what Kimberley Jones calls the Witch Wound – fear of persecution for being magical.
Which is interesting because the Essence Unveiled process has revealed that I want to embrace and communicate my magical and spiritual nature and inspiration more explicitly and publicly in my life and work.
I began my Essence Unveiled ceremony on summer solstice, continued the day after charging all my crystals up under the full moon and am completing today.
Friday 13 new moon eclipse seems like the perfect day to ceremonially burn my list of things to let go of.
For me to truly show up and be seen by the global new audience I’m now aiming to reach and serve, I pledge to courageously stand in the truth of who I really am and shine brightly, no matter what people think of me!

Tue 17 July – taking shape
So much magic in my continuing Essence Unveiled (branding and design) process with Lynda.
As she shares images, colours, energetic connections, symbols and ideas from her work with me so far, I’m electrified with inspiration!
Recently we’ve been talking about my Scottishness – nature, ancestors, landscapes – so I sent her this blog with videos of me in Scotland five years ago reclaiming my original name (click link below to view).
And then realised I was wearing the same cardi as in the videos, though I’ve rarely worn it since!
Also noticed we have Scottish thistles growing right by our gate here in Cornwall!
Plus I woke with a powerful dream about reclaiming a large community house I’d allowed to become squatted.
Feel there’s a lot of reclaiming Scottishness going on! Sense my ancestors cheering me on!
Can’t wait to reveal the results of Essence Unveiled to you in a few weeks time – I’ll keep you posted!
You may wonder why it’s been a bit quiet on here of late, well, it’s because we have been working intensively behind the scenes creating our fabulous new Thrivecraft Academy!
In September, we’ll be opening applications for our brand new Thrivecraft Take the Leap coaching programme – a fully supported 90 day transformation experience for you and your business that you can join from anywhere in the world.
Also in the autumn, our accredited Thrivecraft Coach training programme will be relaunched having moved onto it’s new platform, specially designed to make your home learning even more streamlined and straightforward.
From early 2019, Thrivecraft Meditation Foundation and accredited Meditation Teacher training courses will follow, with further new programmes to come after that.
To help us with all this, I’m being mentored intensively by coaching business expert, Kenny Goodman. I have learned from experience how much easier it is to have the right coach or mentor in place to help make the leap.
Plus we have commissioned brand designer Lynda Mangora to create Thrivecraft’s new visual identity over the summer, ready for the big autumn launch.
And I am delighted to announce that Thrivecraft has recruited a fantastic new VA – online business manager, Amy Kneale. Amy will be handling much of the implementation and technical side of Thriveraft so that I can focus on coaching, course creation and delivery.
Although benefiting from our amazing new online learning platform, Thrivecraft programmes will continue to be led by 1-1 and group coaching – a powerful mix that ensures flexible learning with deep support at every step.
More on all of this coming soon! Look out for prelaunch news over the summer. And if you have any ideas of things you’d like to train in or have specific issues you’d love help with, let us know. We are creating the future Thrivecraft together.

Extract from my new book
How did I manage to find my true love and soul mate?
“Totnes is full of single mothers and hardly any single men” – my new friends in Devon were quite adamant. “I hope you’re not expecting to find a partner down here!” But I wasn’t moving to rural south west England to find a partner, not yet anyway.
After 16 years living in a Buddhist community in London, it was time to move on, and my longing for a rural lifestyle could no longer be ignored. But most importantly of all, my seven-year-old son, Jamie, deserved a more gentle upbringing than a city could afford.
Despite the good reasons, however, there was also an element of strange magnetism I couldn’t put my finger on. In many ways I was leaving a great situation…
