the essence map
Welcome to the Essence Map, your guide and route map of the stages and milestones that we all encounter throughout our lives.
navigate the path
Knowing where you are on the map and the best way to navigate that path can help you move forward with greater ease and with a better understanding of what the future will hold for you.
the hero's journey and the blind woodturner
We start with an interview with my husband, Chris Fisher RPT, also known as the Blind Woodturner. Chris lost his sight 11 years ago, becoming completely blind in a period of four weeks. He has travelled through all of the milestones of the Essence Map and we talk about what it really felt like and how his life was transformed by the whole journey.
Chris is now the UK’s first professional, accredited blind woodturner and he travels the country sharing his story and giving public woodturning demonstrations. His mission is to inspire and motivate others to achieve their potential.

There is a path that we walk each time we encounter change, whether this is through loss, bereavement, or another ending. It’s an eternal cycle that gives us an opportunity to recognise who we are and to come face to face with our essential selves. We continue to repeat the same lessons until we finally learn them.
The route map highlights the milestones along the way and shows us what we can expect. Knowing this gives us comfort and helps us to understand the purpose of each stage.
The journey never ends. It’s an upward spiral that continues so that we can become who we were always meant to be.
