About Living Awareness
Living awareness is our loving essence. Here we are infinitely safe and at peace.
Learn how to live your life centered in your true Self, pure awareness.
Awareness is a wellspring of love and wisdom.
Fear shifts towards love. Decisions become more wholesome, relationships heal. Life feels lighter because there is more trust in existence. You will slowly discover you are this one essence; powerful, gentle, loving, compassionate, you are love. You are living awareness.
I can help if you are:
- wanting to heal your discomfort,
- ready to take responsibility for your own wellbeing,
- willing to discover your innocence, facing your shadow and light with loving compassion,
- ready to open to your beautiful inner spirit, to be loved and nurtured by it and to be informed by it.
Ready to start your journey?
With Mia’s gentle psychotherapy you can align with your true Self. As Self, life becomes wholesome and love starts to flow.
About Mia & Living Awareness
Mary Patricia Quinlivan is my full name. It’s always been Mary officially and otherwise, Trish Quinlivan. Towards the end of 2020, during meditation, I heard “Mia”.
Mia is a beautiful shortening of Mary Patricia and it means, “I am the beloved or I am love” in Sanskrit. This is what we all are. It’s a perfect reminder.
AWAKENING, ISIRA and A COURSE IN MIRACLES.
I first awakened in 2017 on retreat with Isira at Uluru. Since then, there has been ongoing learning to slowly let go of egoic resistance and gently enter more deeply into love. It is both a challenging and incredibly beautiful journey.
I have been so privileged to access Isira’s guidance. This is a gift of unconditional love and I feel immense gratitude.
Along the way, I have felt the presence of spirit guides. Particularly some very loving and completely irreverent indigenous Aunties. That is a beautiful story and my podcast “Into the Light with Mighty companions” is the best way to hear it. The podcast also shares insights that will empower your healing.
I also love A Course in miracles, it is immeasurably beautiful. Once I started to enter the state of oneness, I blissfully recognized that Jesus really is inside us and all around us.
I graduated from Medicine in 1991 and worked for 21 years as a doctor, in hospitals for three years then in general practice.
In 2012 an episode of severe insomnia, catalysed lovely transformation! It forced me to leave the general practice setting. I became a GP who focussed solely on mindfulness and psychotherapy. The nine years from 2012 – 2021 were beautiful and facilitated deepening awareness.
In early 2021 I knew it was time to allow more spirituality into my work, if clients were interested. Every consult I aim to hand over to pure awareness, a space of unconditional love. This is healing for both client and therapist, what a beautiful opportunity. A Course in Miracles calls it “psychotherapy with spirit.” I also started the Spiritual Psychotherapy podcast.

Living Awareness is the name of Isira’s organization. It encompasses Isira, her teachings and a team of people who value her commitment to truth and unconditional love. Isira is a spiritual leader and having indigenous heritage, is also a wisdom keeper. Isira was mentored by the Dalai Lama’s teacher.
I am privileged to be a member of the Living Awareness team and to be calling this website Living Awareness WA.
As a therapist I am fully autonomous. I offer my own unique expression, blending years of education and experience. At times I may also share wisdom I have learned from Isira.
Some people feel wary of spirituality because of the bad rap religion and various cult like groups have created. I want to reassure you, true spirituality is never controlling or judgmental. It simply points you inward, towards your loving, inner wisdom. It is up to you, to find your authentic way forward.
