Meet The Team

Andy Mort
Founder

Haven-Andy

Andy created The Haven in 2014 as a private annex connected to his blog, where he invited introverted and sensitive people to explore more of who they are as creative gentle rebels.

He is a songwriter, professionally qualified life coach, and multipotentialite who's life is shaped by a diverse and disparate set of interests, endeavors, and explorations.

Tuula has been a member of The Haven since it started, and followed Andy's gentle journey of growth and flourishing over the years. She describes it as her soul's home. It's a place of memories, personal growth, friends, love, and music.

You will always find her nearby as a kind and gentle spirit, waiting to welcome you home. She runs the Photography Group as well as many of the live happenings in and around the community.

Lindsay-Celeste Graf
Creative Community Partner

Haven-LC nat

Lindsay-Celeste is an eclectic creative in her mid-thirties. She lives on Vancouver Island on the West Coast of Canada, and loves the variety of outdoor beauty and exploration available in her hometown.

Lindsay-Celeste runs the Sacred Space and Creation Station Groups in The Haven. You'll also see her in and around the community discussing the monthly themes with Andy.

Kendra could never figure out if she is an intellectual or a creative, and for many years split her life between the two. She writes and speaks about how to thrive as a sensitive, curious creative in a world that makes it difficult to stray from conventional paths.

Kendra recently finished a novel and will be seeking publication for it over the next year. She runs the From Burnout to Book group in the Haven, where you can find support for all your writing needs.
