Like so many in these times, my journey towards the Light began near the rock bottom of darkness. At the age of 19, pursuing a professional career in dance in NYC, I fell under the negative influence of unhealthy teachers, and into the oh so common struggle with an eating disorder. In the midst of this daily addictive battle, one day alone and in despair in my apartment in Queens, from the yearning to heal I had a spontaneous awareness and realisation.
As if pulled off the edge of a cliff, in my questioning of the purpose and meaning of my life, I had an extraordinary experience of Divinity, God, or what I couldn’t put a name to. I had a non-religious upbringing, so this experience of Light opened a chapter of questing, seeking, and profound healing that brought me from searching through sacred texts, to back-packing through India, to moving in to heal with my estranged Father, to eventually meeting my beloved Matthew, and finding our spiritual home and teacher of Transpersonal Psychology - Pneuma Institute and Juan Ruiz Naupari. Everything in my life had become consecrated to the process of healing. I had grown up eating seaweed and tofu, my powerhouse single Mom had raised me and my siblings on a super conscious vegetarian organic diet, and so this influence carried on throughout my life, and I have always found my medicine cabinet amongst the herbs in the local health food store. My journey from darkness and self destruction and into the expanse of light and healing, has naturally resulted in my commitment to the service of well-being and inner peace on behalf of others.
My personal journey and my studies have equipped me with the lived experience, as well as ancient and modern techniques to facilitate the introspection and discovery for others to find their inner wisdom and source of liberation. As well, the art I express, whether it is music or dance, continues to be an expression of this journey towards wholeness, peace, and a devoted life.
