Susan Maycock is the visionary founder of the Living Upward Movement and acclaimed author of After Rain and The Guide to Living Upward. She is a master teacher, wisdom keeper and bold catalyst for change.
Following the publication of After Rain, Susan founded the Living Upward Movement. Her new book, The Guide to Living Upward is a unique experiential companion to After Rain. It invites readers to question self-limiting beliefs, make empowered choices, and create a life of abundance.
Susan’s teachings are interactive, supportive, and always inspiring.

During her long career Susan has been committed to helping others of all ages find emotional balance, inner peace and the will and means to change.

After receiving a Masters degree in Counseling, Susan worked in mental health, criminal justice, public schools, and in private practice. She founded a grassroots center for parent support and education, and later became a non-profit and corporate consultant in work and family life, mentoring, and workplace communication.

After two decades in counseling and consulting, she gave it all up to become a fine-art photographer of the natural world. This led her down the path to Santa Fe, New Mexico where art and spirituality merged. During her decade in the West, she photographed and exhibited her work while studying ancient and contemporary healing practices and neuroscience. In weaving them all together she created her signature Soul Medicine-Body Wisdom approach to healing.

Throughout her career she has been a revolutionary leader in interactive and experiential approaches to personal and collective change. Her teachings awaken us to our true nature, empower us with compassion and guide us toward a greater sense of purpose and belonging.

Susan currently resides in Bernardston, Massachusetts.

The power of Susan Maycock’s new book, After Rain, is its invitation to the reader … to reflect for oneself, to use both eye and intellect to consider meaning, and to pose challenges to oneself about the future. Frequently using metaphors and analogies, Susan’s language never preaches.  Rather, she “re-presents” both nature and the human spirit in the frame of her own life and invites readers to do the same for theirs.  You can read just a few pages at a time if you choose, you can focus just on the visual images of her professional photography, and you can create your own dots to follow the story unfolding.  What the reader as a thinker takes away is as important as what the author as a healer has offered, and therein lies the power of the book’s invitation.
