My name is Fiona McKerrell
and I have been an Ideagrower since 1986.
For me, growing ideas means : Giving birth, nurturing, raising and make all the ideas that come through my mind blossom.
Raised by a Scottish musician father and an inspired Algerian mother. I am the first born of a French multicultural and creative family. After 4 years at the Beaux-Arts School, I chose to study Visual Arts. Meanwhile, I started learning a lot about meditation, spirituality, psychology, alternative medecine, healing techniques and chamanism through books and trips in Asia.
After working in different advertising agencies in France, I decided to travel alone in India for two months. Coming home after that inner journey happened to be hard for me, because I was forced to realize that : I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life.
Six months later, I was so desperate to find my place in society that life pushed me to look deep into my inner abyss. When in December 2013, I finally touched the bottom, I experienced a short and powerful spiritual awakening. At this moment, the crazy world I had been living in revealed its true colors and everything started to make sense again. The flow of information that I received back then was so intense that my mind broke down and I ended up recovering at the psychiatric hospital. This life-changing experience was a big choc and a new start for me, it’s when I began to listen to my inner voice.
At the hospital, I started to intuitively draw Totems and Mandalas. They helped me to escape from this No-man’s land and they litterally saved my life.
This practice helped me focus on the present moment, ground deeply into my new reality and see myself through more compassionate eyes.
Little by little, I learned to love myself the way I was and I slowly but surely reconnected to life.
One year later, my desire to pass on what Mandalas taught me, drove me to write my first self-published book : Mandalas & Totems.
A book that guided the reader through the creation of their own healing drawings. I shared in this book and the second one, how the practice of Mandala helped me to believe in my inner creative abilities and to unlock my true potential.
At that time, even though I was feeling much better, I could sense that somethings were holding me back from my true-self. I was still having some trouble achieving my projects and found my place in this world. That’s when the Festen Method crossed my path. At the first session it was a real revelation :
I felt that it was the method I had always been looking for.
All along the process, everything finally made perfect sense to me, I could put some words on all the sufferings I was carrying on my back since I was a child. Throughout the process, I changed of paradigm. Today I am open up to life, to my desires and to the World. Everything is really possible, my life is fun and simple, I am where I’m supposed to be, I move forward everyday, I follow my desires, I share my healing gifts, I achieve my projects. I dare to be who I am !
The most amazing thing is that since my Festen my projects
come to life in an easy and joyful way !
Now released from my fears, I am connected too what really matters to me: Helping others releasing their unlimited potential.
Since then I have been doing many exciting things like :
- Sharing guidance and healing through the Wonderfull Soul Dates
- Helping other to release their fears and awake their true potential with André Charbonnier’s Festen method
- Spreading the Good Word through the Now Here Good-Vibe shop here.

Everyday I enjoy using the magic powers of nature, my intuition
and my creativity, to deeply:
heal others and bring back harmony inside and outside this world and the people that come to me !
