Author & former BBC Journalist Mags MacKean has drawn inspiration from mountains - quitting her career to scale some of the highest peaks in the world.

Transferring the goal-driven values of a sea-level office life for an adrenaline-fuelled quest proved a short-lived high.

Mags is an inspirational speaker who supports individuals to develop their creative voice and vision, and guides life-changing journeys, including to Peru's ancient heartland. She lives in the city of Bristol, UK

Erasing those destructive patterns paves the way for positive, healthy relationships that can stand the test of time. This five-week course will first teach you about the negative patterns that attract bad relationships through video and audio lectures. Then, in guided meditation programs, you'll go deep within and knock out that old programming. You'll even benefit more each time you listen to these relaxing and easy-to-follow programs. With this groundwork, you'll be ready for a great relationship and to attract your ideal mate soon.
