Hello lovely, I'm so happy you're here!
I can’t wait to support you in cultivating courage and space for your creativity to flow and your soul to flourish.
Grab a cuppa, get cozy, and stay awhile. Gift yourself time to indulge your curiosity and discover how you can gently honour your creative desires.
Your deepest desire is to reconnect to and embody your true power. To be you, the real you.
To be free from attachment to external approval.
To be free from shoulds, striving and self-doubt.
To find self-love and self-belief, so you can honour
what really matters to you... at a soul level.
So you can shine like the beautiful soul you are.
Words from my upcoming book, The Midlife Awakening
Self-Doubt. Shoulds. Suppression.
The not-so-subtle dream killers, that keep us safe, stuck and small.
What if rather than ruminate about your regrets, you compassionately cultivated courage to create, alongside a small, beautiful gathering of like-hearted creatives and soul sisters?
Whether you’re a seasoned soulful creative, an occasional dabbler, or a curious beginner, I'm here to gently guide you on your path to expressing your innate creativity through simple, soulful, seasonal embodiment & energy practices.
Empowering you to move past your doubts and fears, so that you trust your intuition and start creating in a way that feeds your soul.
I believe if we all learn to live in a way that lights us up, together we will create a brighter world.
It took me over four decades and a death to honour and own my lifelong dream to be a writer.
Writing and creative expression are the unsung heroes that saved my life when it unexpectedly and spectacularly fell apart in midlife.
I couldn't be (or breathe) without them.
Which is why I'm now on a mission to gently empower women worldwide to cultivate their inherent creativity so they can live more soul-satisfying lives.
Satisfy Your Soul
If the last three years have shown us anything, it's to seize the day and stop pushing our desires aside until someday when.
However, for creatives and wannabe creatives, knowing this doesn't make it any easier to get started
We offer co-creative, collaborative resources, experiences and community for soulful and neurosparkly souls who want to create, but get in their own way or worry it’s too late.
Together we explore gentle ways to embrace our enoughness, make friends with fear, and nurture our creativity.
Incorporating seasonal, cyclical practices into our lives, so we can cultivate courage and space to create, alongside a like-hearted community on a similar journey.
One simple soulful step at a time.
Meet Your Courage Cultivator...
I’m Helen Grace MacGregor, founder of grace.space.soul.
I’m passionate about gently encouraging and empowering soulful women to embrace their enoughness and express their innate creativity, so they can flourish in a world that equates worth with productivity.
I've walked many paths and worn multiple hats. Through every exploration and iteration, the constant drumbeat of my heart has called me to help people and write.
I've nailed the first part over the years. Not so much the second...
Once a health professional, I've spent the last two decades serving kind-hearted souls who serve others. First as a Shiatsu and Cranio-Sacral therapist, and later as a soul guide, yoga, and Qoya teacher.
My insatiable drive to understand what makes humans tick led to me training with some of the best embodiment and energy teachers in the western world. As I shared my discoveries with others, I slowly rediscovered and reclaimed my real self.
In 2017, I wrote and successfully crowdfunded my first book, The Magical Unfolding: 8 Magical Processes for Peace, Potential and Purpose.
This mission-led book was my love letter to the world. Part memoir, part manifesto, and part roadmap for the non-linear journey of returning home to your true self, this book marked a turning point in my work. And in my self-worth.
Years of fertility issues had previously seen me questioning my worth as a woman who couldn't
carry children. Finding the courage to create diminished my self-doubt and restored my self-belief.
The plot twist...
In 2019, just 8 months after my book release, life threw me a shocking turning point. My long, happy marriage unexpectedly ended overnight after one conversation.
The pandemic arrived soon after. As the UK locked down 2 days before my 50th birthday, I'd never felt more alone.
Life felt like it was falling apart and in many ways it was. But holding my heart tenderly in one hand and carrying my courage in the other, I slowly and gently began reorientating and recalibrating to the life I wasn't expecting to have.
Since then, I've been on a journey to rediscover who I am without the labels of wife or mother, or the comfort zone of the known.
In my quest to follow my heart, I've relocated twice, worked for 2 charities, and slowly rebuilt my life from the ground up. It's been messy, scary, and lonely. I've cried a million tears, faced my biggest fears, and still come up smiling.
My midlife turning point has enriched my life more than I could ever have imagined.
Which is why in my next life chapter, I'm Doing Life Differently. Again...
The bigger plot twist...
Having birthed a book, podcast, women's circles, and multiple courses over the years, I recently discovered that my multi-passionate Should-free, Soul-full approach to life can be explained by the fact I've unknowingly been living with ADHD for over 5 decades.
I did NOT see that coming!
Now, whilst I edit my second book, The Midlife Awakening, I'm letting love lead the way, by placing writing, words and wonder at the centre of my life and work. This feels big, vulnerable, and scary. Nonetheless, it's the thing I can't NOT do.
This is why I'm now encapsulating two decades' worth of experiential and embodied wisdom and training into a new body of work. Helping you to get what really matters to you done... even if like me, you’re a neurodiverse midlife creative.
I believe that it’s never too late to create, and your soul work doesn’t have to wait.
Here's to living and working in a way that sparks your soul, whatever life chapter you're in.
