Originally from Milan, Giada started very early to be a serious world traveller. Her decision to spend all her savings exploring new places led her to wander by campervan around Australia for months and to spend a month in a Buddhist monastery in Nepal as a key part of her spiritual quest started years ago.
As a result of twenty years of travelling through her personal and professional experience as International Events Manager , she began to write, and co-authored a non-profit book with 33 other Italian women (“Donne che emigrano all’estero”- “Women moving abroad”).
She has been studying and practising Buddhist teachings and meditation with the traditions NgalSo Ganden Nyengyu, Fpmt Mayayana, Theravada Vipassana in Nepal, India and Italy. She has been in the Five Tibetan Rites with Silvia Salvarani, one of the most accredited Italian teachers of Hatha Yoga and Raja Yoga. Approached the imaginal world and dreams with the psychologist Elio Occhipinti and went through a regressive hypnosis journey with the vision of the psychiatrist Brian Weiss.
Shamanism has been part of her life, firstly through a natural recognition of rituals and ceremonies as a solid aspect of her life cycle and further on in a more formal training with the Two Years Shamanic Course and Shamanic Teacher Training from the Toltec Tradition run by Two Birds at Anam Cara and from the Japanese tradition becoming a Shamanic and Integral Yoga Teacher with Selene Calloni Williams who has authored several books on psychology, deep ecology, shamanism, yoga, philosophy, and anthropology. In her Academy, she has also become a qualified Forest Therapy Guide (Shinrin Yoku) and Ikigai Coach and she is part of the Italian-Swiss Association for Counselling and Coaching, Aiscon.
She has also become a professional numerologist studying for a Diploma in Esoteric Numerology with The Connaissance School of Numerology.
Her creativity has always been manifesting in different ways: from writing, to developing a personal self-expression through the use of colors in a more traditional Art Therapy.
In 2015 she started a project named ‘Drink In Art’, organizing private exhibitions in local flats to promote Edinburgh-based artists, which now continues in the venue Art and Spirituality Centre , a social enterprise she started in 2021 . And in 2017 she started Invisible Caims, now School of Shamanism, classes, workshops, retreats and therapies about yoga, meditation, art and shamanism.
