About Living Awareness

We are living awareness, the oneness of divine love. We are infinitely safe and at peace.

Learn how to live your life centred in pure awareness.

This is a wellspring of love and wisdom.

Love will start to pervade your life. Decisions become more wholesome, relationships heal, you will feel more whole than you ever have. Life feels lighter because there is deep trust in existence. You will slowly discover you are one with all. Powerful, gentle, loving, compassionate, you are love itself. 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 official name, though most of my work life it’s been Dr Trish Quinlivan. A few years ago, I started to enjoy Mary more, because she is a being of light and such a beautiful inspiration. Then towards the end of 2020 during meditation I heard “Mia”.

Mia means, I am the beloved, she is who I am becoming.


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 the light. It is both a challenging and incredibly beautiful journey.

I have been so privileged to have Isira as a guide, both in person and in the space of awareness. This is a gift of unconditional love and I feel immense gratitude.

Along the way, mostly facilitated by Isira, I have been guided by other 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 Jesus, Mary and A Course in miracles. ACIM is immeasurably beautiful. Once I started to enter the state of oneness, I blissfully recognised that Jesus really is inside us and all around us. All these beings of light are there holding us, we are just not aware of them. I hear Jesus’s wisdom directly occasionally.

Once, in a very resistant state to an ACIM lesson, I was telling Jesus I wasn’t ready for this journey and the thought came “you are more than ready!”

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 leave medicine completely and dive into spirituality.I wanted to hand over the reins and be in service of pure awareness/God. Psychotherapy with Christ, as described in A Course in Miracles. I moved into spiritual psychotherapy.

  • Increasingly guided by pure awareness and making mistakes along the way!
  • Learning with Isira since 2015
  • A student of A Course in Miracles
  • Meditation /Mindfulness since age 18.
  • 2 years Gestalt psychotherapy training 2005, 2006.
  • Fellow of Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) 1996
  • Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery ( MBBS) 1991 UWA

Living Awareness is the name of Isira’s organization. It encompasses Isira, her teachings and a team of people who support her commitment to share truth and unconditional love with the world.

I am privileged to be a member of this team and to be calling this website Living Awareness WA.

As a spiritual guide I will offer my own unique expression, blending years of experience. At times I will also share some of the teachings Isira has taught me. What Isira offers is unconditional love, she lives as love. There is no greater healing.
