Taka worked in the hotel business for 10 years and has been studying as a Flower Essence practitioner since 2005. She was looking for a way to connect with people and exploring how to combine business and spirituality. She started organising meditation classes and workshops with a variety of methods just after the March 2011 earthquake in Japan.
After participating in the Findhorn Foundation's Experience Week programme in April 2013, Taka decided to explore living in Findhorn as her spiritual growth. She currently works in the Findhorn Foundation's Homecare area. Living and working in the community gives her many opportunities for learning how to connect with people, places and herself.
