Arts and health facilitator Clare Jasmine Beloved is the founder of Big Love Sista, a community interest company, commissioned by Public Health and other organisations, which brings communities together to experience the healing powers of creativity and connection.
Clare founded “Big Love Sista” in 2012, after recovering from a breakdown and long illness. Clare is also the founder of Wild Woman – a Social Enterprise that inspired over 20,000 individuals to change their lives dramatically and follow their dreams.
Clare has developed and delivered innovative projects across the UK and internationally. She says:
“My 20 years experience as a group facilitator and therapist brings a depth to my journeying with people. I have worked as a creative activist – in mental health, with survivors of sexual abuse, in prisons, schools, hospitals, homeless shelters and with young offenders. I have also worked with senior management, local government, Public Health teams and staff teams across many sectors.
I think my own experiences of very wobbly mental health and being vulnerable and unable to work or cope for periods of time add to my ability to work with people and shape new approaches to services. I believe all our experiences & vulnerabilities can shape us into more compassionate human beings, willing to open our hearts & risk a wildly beautiful life.”
‘Wild mistress of creative transformation, who keeps the fires burning and returns the light to our hearts, souls and minds.’
