Ceridwyn has worked in education most of her life, and has travelled as much as possible, in New Zealand and around the world.
2012 gave her the chance of a few months in South East Asia. Travelling with her partner Danielle, she has been in Northern Thailand, Cambodia and Laos.
In the early 2000s, Ceridwyn and her partner Danielle searched for a house by the water, where women could come for time of retreat, or for time out at significant times of their lives, the watershed times.They found their cottage on the Thames coast, and called it Watershed Cottage.
Now living in leafy Cambridge by the mighty Waikato river, Ceridwyn finds the idea of ‘watershed’ still informs her thinking- the way ideas and experiences come together , then move on with new energy and life.
Travel itself can be a watershed experience , if the traveller leaves spaces and empty times, for the unexpected and transformative.
