The Almond Tree Foundation CIC is a non-profit social enterprise that provides wellbeing support for families living with illness or disability. A community where parents, spouses, and relatives caring for someone can learn how to access wellbeing through various resources. Almond Trees are known as symbols of hope and renewal. They are amongst the first trees to blossom after winter, signalling spring. A sign of the changing season and hope in times to come.

About the Speakers

George & Linda Pransky

In 2019, George and Linda Pransky, ran a full-time Three Principles practice. They travelled around the world and spoke at events and conferences.  That year George needed a heart bypass surgery and they assumed after recovery that life would continue the way it had been, but as a side effect of the surgery, George suffered a severe stroke.
 

Life changed overnight. Linda became his caregiver, his primary rehab person, and his cheerleader.  Their life changed 180 degrees. In the chaos of this change, they found a tremendous amount of love, gratitude, and hope with newfound strengths and capabilities.

Over the past two years, George has made a dramatic recovery and together they have found a beautiful new life.

Julian Fraser

When my second child was born not breathing, life immediately turned on its head. In those 10 minutes, with no sign of life, everything changed, and the expectations of a beautiful baby and her future were seemingly taken away. Chasya has grown into a teenager with four limb dystonic cerebral palsy with complex care needs, and my 3rd child also has Autism and ADHD.

 

The birth experience and what followed felt extremely painful, empty and stressful, with no clear medical solutions providing comfort.

 

I later came across an understanding of wellbeing that demonstrated the universal nature of wellbeing. It changed my life and has also changed the lives of others in numerous ways. I have spent the last 12 years as a practitioner of this approach. I have been married to Jo for over 20 years, and we have 5 amazing children together and live in London with Henri the labrador.

Claire Shutes

I was born with Cerebral Palsy, but it has not held me back. I have been married for 18 years and have a daughter. I spent twenty years making observational documentaries for the BBC and CH4, becoming a highly respected producer. After the birth of my daughter, I retrained, and now have an international client base working as a Master Transformative Coach and Three Principles Practitioner. 

 

My parents did not focus on my limitations but on my potential. My disability has been a tool for personal development and growth. I have travelled the world studying with teachers from many traditions. I understand that despite our thinking to the contrary, we are whole and perfect exactly as we are.

My professional and personal experience helps me to guide people in transforming their understanding of themselves and the world around them.
