Hello there and welcome to my page!
My name is Anna Jane Wilson and I am the proud founder of Leap of Faith Wellness.
I established the name on the 18th August 2005, the cremation day of my first born, James. In my moment of grief, I wrote on a piece of scrap paper, “Leap of Faith Wellness…worldwide.” Like an epiphany, it was as though I had given birth not only to my son, but also to my own Leap of Faith and a calling from deep within.
Creativity became my voice as I navigated my way through the stages of grief, writing and painting intuitively. By June 2006 I completed my first two publications, “A Leap of Faith” (2011) and “An Artists Story” (2013)
My flower logo I also painted at this time. This remains today, my emblem and logo for A Leap of Faith. Its accompanying prose, “The Umbilical Cord of Life” ( Leap of Faith (2011) personifies the interplay of words of grief with the healing powers of Mother Nature, a theme I have since carried in my art and poetic writings.
By October 2006, I took over a Wellness center in my then locality. The center provided therapies including massage, Reiki and psychic readings. Come 2008, with a gallery of art, a bookshop and therapy rooms I had re-branded and renamed my center, “Leap of Faith Wellness.” At the end of the same year, I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl.
