Positivity is just in Jane’s nature
IN April 2003, Jane Wishaw told the Western Suburbs Weekly about a wellness retreat she was hosting in Margaret River.
She was on the front page of the one-yearold newspaper recalling the horrific horseriding accident that led her to organising the Mind and Body with Nature sessions.
Over the past two weeks, people have approached the Cottesloe resident of more than 20 years asking if she would organise more.
“After the accident, I knew I had to go and spend time in nature,” Ms Wishaw said.
“I wanted to be in a clay home with no disparity between nature and me and have an open fireplace.”
Ms Wishaw spent time at Donnelly River to help recover from the accident that forced her to resign from her dream job as Burswood Resort Business Development global director.
She felt like she had lost her sense of identity.
“I realised the only thing I could take control of was my own wellness,” Ms Wishaw said.
Fourteen years later, the award-winning photographer said she could appreciate her incredible journey.
“I try to incorporate nature in to every day. I enjoy the strength that nature can give.”
