It's a pleasure to welcome you into my sacred corner of this wild world of the web.
I'm a multi-passionate woman born on the unceded territory of the Uypi people in Santa Cruz, California. I don't love trying to describe myself in a short paragraph, so I will say this: I believe in a heart-centered, earth-loving culture that is attuned to the sacred, rooted in relational transparency & integrity, and infused with a spirit of celebration. A culture that uplifts the ways we pray, heal, laugh and grieve, how we alchemize pain into art, beauty and intimacy, and how we honor and be with seasons of change throughout life.
In a variety of ways, and in a timeline that is not mine, this is a reality I'm dreaming into life.
With gratitude for that which connected us here ~
My Formal Education
includes an undergraduate degree in Business Administration from the University of San Diego, and a Masters degree in Transpersonal Psychology with a focus on Creative Expression from Sofia University. I am currently walking towards a PhD in Ecstatic Mysticism. I've completed an intensive 2 year study on individual/ancestral/collective trauma and personal transformation from Academy of Inner Sciences. My therapeutic work is rooted in somatic intelligence, and is influenced by trainings with Thomas Hubl, Hakomi ISITTA, and my own 15 years of somatic based therapy.
I co-founded Ceu do Novo Mundo, INC (aka SacredJourney.Earth) a church non-profit organization that supports the preservation of indigenous wisdom ways, as well as offered 6 years of ceremonial gatherings with the entheogenic Grandmother medicine, Ayahuasca.
I have experienced a month long dieta with late paje, Tata of the Yawanawa tribe in the Amazon jungle in Brazil, as well as multiple other 10 day and month long diets, primarily working with the energy of prayer and of the Serpent.
My devotion to the path of liberation and the healing power of the arts and the body, have led me to countless retreats, trainings and studies around the world. Including but not limited to: ancient mystery schools, breath work, voice work, meditation, tantra and sexual somatic bodywork, shamanic initiations, yoga teacher trainings (Hatha, Tantra Vinyasa, Kundalini), dance studies (ecstatic, 5rhythms, Brazilian zouk, contact-beyond-contact), Reiki, Ayurveda, Vedic astrology, and Gene Keys.
In my free time, you can find me dancing, practicing guitar, studying esoteric sciences, being a lizard in the sun, playing in a body of water, or cuddling with my pup, River, or my snake, Swara.
