Andy Kidd (53) My life’s path has been somewhat uncharted (by me!) – instead I have managed to let the question “What would be most fun next?” guide many of my choices… so I have travelled widely and changed jobs frequently, and made a home by the beach in Australia where my teenage children live with me.
I was privileged to attend great schools and university in Britain, gaining a Masters of Arts in Social Anthropology. I lived in Spain, volunteered in West Africa, sailed the Atlantic twice, became a masseur then a yoga teacher and Zero Balancer in Australia. I am a Wedding Celebrant and a Wisdom Keeper.
“What am I doing with my life?”
As I contemplated the question “How can I use my gifts to be of most service?” some years ago, I envisioned Life Lessence. Now I work with elders to capture their wisdom in books, wherein they record the lessons of their lives. I make hardback Legacy Books for their family and descendants. At present I am editing books for individuals privately and leading workshops for veterans of wars to support each other to do this in a group.
I see my contribution to Wildly Free Elders as one of inviting conversations on questions like:
• What does it mean to live well?
• What lesson has been most important to me?
• What is success?
• Who have I loved and what does love mean?
• What are my thoughts and feelings about dying? • What do I regret?
• What is my greatest legacy?
Here are my contact details:
With gratitude and best wishes, Andy Kidd
