I felt called to serve for as long as I can remember. I always loved giving and receiving massage and healing touch, so I discovered a natural affinity with the healing arts from a very young age.
After receiving a BA degree in Biology with honors in 1989 from Hood College in Frederick, MD, and exploring a brief career in Environmental Studies (Ecology and Marine Biology), my inner calling rapidly led me to pursue the healing arts, and to dive passionately into spiritual awakening. It began with the study of holistic healing and massage. I received my certification from the Potomac Massage Training Institute in Washington DC, in 1991. Shortly after, I moved to the Catskill Mountains of New York where I was immersed in a full spectrum of classes and workshops in the healing arts including apprenticeships in herbal medicine and Native American healing and spirituality, before moving to Wisconsin, where I am based now.
In the mid-1990′s, I underwent a dramatic transformation and spiritual awakening catalyzed by A Course in Miracles, the illuminate masterpiece for the healing and enlightenment of humanity. This treasure, often referred to as the “Advaita Vedanta of the West” or the “Yoga of the Christ,” changed my life forever. I now live in the light of this miraculous, on-going, universal experience, which is featured in the inspiring documentary, A Course in Miracles Unleashed, a deeply moving film sharing experiences of miraculous healing and spiritual enlightenment from around the world. From my home-base in Wisconsin, I often travel abroad extending the gift of this simple, yet profound universal teaching, and the joyful experience of Self-Realization it brings. I have given presentations, healing workshops, awakening immersions and spiritual life coaching sessions in over 15 countries over the last 20 years.
I am delighted to offer such events, online classes, spiritual life coaching and wellness consultations for those that genuinely desire the experience of personal transformation, healing and spiritual awakening; who want to discover practical tools for being vibrantly healthy, living consciously in true peace and being centered in the flow of intuitive wisdom and grace in every moment, while fulfilling their life’s purpose. I also lead individuals and groups on journey’s of the spirit (playful pilgrimages) and transformational retreats, upon request.
I received my Yoga Instructor Certification in 2010 at the Sivananda Ashram and Yoga Retreat in Paradise Island, Bahamas, and have traveled extensively in India and worldwide since, studying Thai Yoga Massage, receiving wisdom from Ayurveda (the ancient Indian art & science of healing), leading tours/pilgrimages and deepening my experience of meditation and yoga, as well as teaching and offering service. My expression of yoga, healing work and life in general, focuses on the true meaning of the word “Yoga, as “Union” – “Yoking with Source or God.” I have realized that becoming aware of our true state of union and wholeness dissolves all sense of separation, fear, conflict, stress and anxiety, allowing our lives to realign and issues to resolve naturally. I am delighted to serve you and to share the wondrous art of healing touch and the transforming gifts of yoga!
My other passion is writing mystic poetry, which I hope to offer as an inspiration soon when I publish my first book, so stay tuned. ☺
