PRIORA – Future Directions and Priorities Guidance
Richard Mochelle
(07) 5435 0378

How on Earth do we decide what is most worth doing with our limited valuable time? How do we decide our priorities? PRIORA is a philosophy-based guidance service to help individuals think more clearly about their time-use priorities in consideration of what they figure is most important and ethically meaningful for them given the myriad and overwhelming challenges in the world. The service is not a career guidance service nor a form of psychological counselling for troubled souls. With a doctorate in moral and political philosophy and experience in futures education, Richard Mochelle has developed tools to help individuals self-build a coherent platform of guiding principles enabling them to more rationally decide and justify their time-use commitments – their organisational involvements, lifestyle choices, project or service priorities and future partners.

Essensual Portraits
Susie Foster
(07)5435 0158
The human face can tell so many different stories of life experiences and journeys, of deeper hidden emotions, I like to go beyond the stuck emotions of the mask that many of us present and move in deeper.  Through my portraits I aim to show you your inherent qualities and ‘essensual self’ to encourage and support you in your life process.  Peeling back the outer layers I intuitively draw forth aspects of the multi-coloured, infinitely wise and loving souls that we are.
