Weapons of Mass Creation

A facilitator enables groups to do their best thinking, clearing the path to breakthroughs and agreements usually obscured by groups norms, power dynamics, biases and self-censorship. I provide facilitation of project framing, strategy, stakeholder engagement and decision making workshops. My super-speciality is weaving nature into strategy development.

Our wellbeing is essential to being able to connect, align with and fulfil our purpose in this lifetime and serve the whole. My background and experiences in healing, from Occupational Therapy to yoga, bodywork and shamanic healing inform my ability to be able to work on the level of the whole person.

I offer individual sessions through Treehouse Bodywork as well as personalised Healing Journeys in beautiful locations in nature. 

As a certified guide with Way of Nature International, I offer nature retreats that provide transformational, soul-nourishing, path-aligning and deeply restorative immersions. This is work that is deeply needed in this time of separation from self, other and spirit and all the destruction that wreaks on the planet. I consider this the heart of my work, as my person practice in nature has transformed my understanding of every other aspect of what I offer.

about Claire

"We can only shine when we realise our true nature as a connected being and are aligned with our purpose as a player on the team of life."

Why Weapons of Mass Creation? Because I love seeing people’s eyes bright and clear when they are being themselves, connected and aligned with the rest of life. We can only shine when we realise our true nature as a connected being and are aligned with our purpose as a player on the team of life.

I have a background in health and worked as an Occupational Therapist and in health promotion. I found myself focussing on behaviour change, positive psychology and the social determinants of health; discovering that I love working out what makes people and communities tick and utilising that for positive change.

Testimonials

Last year I had the pleasure of joining Claire Vanderplank on a quest. The insights continue to unfold, and my connection to nature/myself has deepened.  It was such a magical experience that I will forever treasure. Claire facilitates beautifully, holding space to a fine balance;  just enough to facilitate your own brave growth & deep immersion into the mystery.

Thanks Claire! I had a great time – it was really calming but also really thought provoking. As a deep thinker I really like that! Also fantastic meeting great people! I think I’ve been having more moments of ‘presence’ since Saturday which is good too.

Because of Claire, I now stand differently on the earth.
