It came as a surprise to me that we were in Japan...
The first leg of an only partially planned five-month overseas adventure.
My three kids and I had *actually* landed in a foreign country … with backpacks on … without a clue of the language … to tick off my son’s ‘bucket list place’ at the ripe old age of 12!
We were there because a tiny seed of a thought early in 2023 about this being the perfect year for a big trip had turned into a consuming thought.
I shared it with friends (who encouraged it!)
And then shared with my family (who didn’t approve!)
And suddenly I was ‘sussing out’ the price of plane tickets to see if it was a possibility.
And when I thought it might be I spoke to the kids to get their take (trepidatious but keen)
And after seeing a travel agent I was sent a flight itinerary that filled me with so much excitement that every inch of me (except my head, which kept reminding me of all the reasons why this was a terrible idea) screamed YES.
And so, four weeks later - we were off! First stop Japan!
I did it. We were away.
I could never have imagined at that first destination the moments that were waiting for me over the coming months. Every single place contained a gift.
I was ripe for it. I was so ready to be thrown about by it all, shocked by things, disoriented and lost and awed and tired and delighted and turned back on.
Join me as I share the Moments from a trip that healed, raised and recalibrated me from the inside out.

Earlier this year I wrote and performed a story called Harvest to live audiences around Australia.
We recorded the Brisbane event and the recording is now available.
“We had a path to walk in this lifetime.
He called me Betty.
I called him Max.
The path was fraught.
This is a story of a woman spinning out of control, loving hard, losing lots, meeting the edges of her edges and wishing it would all go away.
This is a story of resistance, of naivety, of distraction and ultimately it’s a love story - but not between Betty and Max.
This is the story of gathering a harvest through the harshest of seasons.”
Lisa Corduff has invented a new genre of story-telling”
I’m in awe of Lisa’s story and her ability to write a compelling story”.
I’m still percolating on so much she shared”
With an open heart, fierce strength, and vulnerability, she opened a vein and invited us into her world”.
Sharing her truth, being raw and inspiring us all to find the Harvest amongst our hardships”
