Meditation has been Ilse’s main interest for more than 30 years. She specialises in Health Education, Personal Development Coaching and Counselling. Originally trained as a Nurse and Midwife, she was more interested in Health Education and Illness Prevention. This led her to explore alternative health options and helped establish a national alternative life style Newspaper ‘Ziriuz’. With Fai Hast, she developed a Colour Healing Course. Ilse designed and taught the meditation methods. This course caught the attention of Monash University Community Environment Program.
