Pip Edwards reveals she’s into ‘tea ceremonies, sage burning and astrology’ but still calls herself Catholic on the census as she opens up about her spiritual life


Pip Edwards may be a successful businesswoman, having built an empire with her activewear label P.E Nation.

But the 41-year-old also has a spiritual side, and relies upon tea ceremonies, sage burning and astrology to help guide her personal and professional life.

In an in-depth chat with The Sydney Morning Herald last week, Pip spoke about her religious and supernatural views.

Pip revealed she was born and raised a Catholic and still ticks the religion on the census, but doesn’t really ‘identify’ with the faith anymore. 

She also said she loves astrology, the practice of forecasting life events through the interpretation of the sun, moon and planets. 

‘You can take it with a grain of salt, but it adds another layer of colour and richness to what’s right in front of us,’ she told the publication.

‘I am a massive animal card-reader. I have tea ceremonies. I have crystals. I burn sage, palo santo [holy wood],’ she added. 

Pip went on to say she experiences doubt in her ’emotional life’ but not in business, where she has ‘strong convictions’.

The mother of one has built an incredible fashion empire for herself with P.E Nation, alongside co-founder Claire Tregoning.

Last year, the Australian Financial Review reported Pip had earned a massive $20million in revenue in the previous fiscal year.

P.E Nation effectively quadrupled its profits since it was founded four years ago, having reported $5.2million in 2016/17.

Pip recently told Forbes ‘passion’ is the key to her success. 

‘People often ask about what success is, because a lot of people think “how can I become successful?” That’s not the driver. And I think for women who are trying to start, fund or create businesses, it’s about their passion, what do they want to do every day, what are they prepared to commit to doing every day,’ she explained. 

‘And maybe you need a skill-set along the way and experience, but I really believe it’s passion over everything.’
