Growing up is exciting, but sometimes life can seem like too much. Feelings of anger, fear, sadness and doubt creep in like storm clouds. When their grey dominates your day it can be overwhelming and frustrating. Usually, no one seems to understand – not even you. You may feel alone, but you’re not. Seekers understand. We do. It’s why we're here; to reinvigorate your world with colour, brightness, and warmth. It may feel impossible now, but just you wait, with our seekers support, you can make your dreams and aspirations real!
The secret of Seekers is simple - they are just like us!! Believe it or not, they’ve been exactly where you are right now. They've faced many of life's challenges; travelled and journeyed through all the highs and lows, all the ups and downs, and through it, they've discovered their inner resilience, passions, talents and joy. It has not been an easy road, but the adventure that is life wouldn't be the same if it were easy!
Just like you, Seekers often needed a guide. Someone to show them the way, to impart their wisdom, mindset, and experience about any difficulties found on the road. They - are now path-finders, walking alongside young people just like you - listening and always learning. Their adventures can take you from the grandest Guildhall to the humblest of homes but whether on the inside - or out, Seekers skills stay and strengthen you forever. Seekers are there to remind us that we can cope with anything, that to struggle is natural and that all challenges can be overcome.
Just like any great story, a Seekers journey starts with a dream. In fact, Seekers were born from one! They came, one worrisome sleepless night. They spoke to creator Clair with words of inspiration and enlightenment, washing away the exhaustion after the world of adulthood had taken its toll, painting the gloomy sky a bright shining blue filled to the brim with hope for the future.
They spoke - of lands where treasures can be found, and dreams beyond thoughts alone, energising Clair's weary heart and soul.
Through their whispering, the twelve Seekers guided creator Clair to draw the very places and paths where these Seekers live, play and learn. You see, for creator Clair, the mischievous Seekers kept her awake to unlock this unique and special mission. And when you stumble on your sleepless night, where hope seems to have left your being, that’s when Seekers like Clair’s come to hold your hand and remind you how to shine. Imagine… Living like a Seeker, where life is colour-filled bright and full of adventure in every day. And when those troubles knock upon your door again, having the skills to unlock their wisdom and the tools to move through them with relative ease and lay to rest those pesky troubles.
Ask yourself this… Do you want to be kept behind those dark grey clouds, lost in a seemingly endless storm for yet another day? OR Live fully aligned with your vibrant dreams and navigate any life challenge? As that’s the Seekers way! Are you ready? Yes! Let’s start seeking and get the tools and guidance to make your dreams real.
Unlock the door to your imagination...
All 12 seekers share a free spirited nature; they’re kind, curious, and dependable but just a wee bit unpredictable. But one thing is for sure, just like you, each seeker is unique.
Each one holds the key to a portico! - a door where a world waits to be discovered. Once opened, the Seekers search is activated. It is their mission to guide and support you through until you unlock your treasure.
The Seekers power lies within the 'Magic of Meraki' - the passion for your work, to devote yourself to something wholeheartedly and passionately!. You may have already touched Meraki in your own life - it lights up your very being, you’ll definitely understand when you reclaim the power of your dreams.
Remember, seekers start with a dream!
Their magical Meraki stays with them in their symbolic butterfly. Sometimes.. they’re snatched by sneaky saboteur Colour-Snatchers and their kin, who drain the very sunshine and wonder from your dreams and turn them into those dreaded grey days. So sneaky are those Colour-Snatchers! They snatch the magic from your day before you even know it. They drink from sorrow and feed on fear!
They want you to go back to dream-less sleep, lethargy and the land of zombies where people are all the same and your power is hidden deep inside, unusable. They don’t want you to succeed. But Seekers do! And that's why we are here for each of you. On this adventure you’ll be given the tools and guidance to avoid these evil pesky pests.

The ones that burn through your very being when times are tough, lighting the way AND pushing you forward to greater heights, greater achievements, and greater triumphs!. “These are not day dreams these are the dreams of joy and hope, the very reason you’re here!
