Pos­i­tiv­ity is just in Jane’s na­ture

Western Suburbs Weekly - - From The Archives - By DENISE S. CAHILL

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.”
