As a child and on into early adulthood I knew little of spirituality, mindfulness
practices , or empowerment. My early years were fraught
with struggle and difficulty. I eventually entered into university with the
desire to help others. I studied pre-med and humanitarian aid.
I was trained in both wilderness survival and emergency medicine.
As a student I repelled from cliffs to rescue victims,
held clinics in remote jungles, and was trained on two continents in survival.
I found Tantra quite on accident. In fact I went searching for information on
sacred sexuality thinking I had stumbled across an originally idea.
In the beginning I did not seek for myself. I wanted to help others.
Of course I very quickly I realized I'd have to start with my own work, which
was extensive. I suffered from sexual trauma and undiagnosed pelvic floor pain. I did not believe sex could be pleasurable. Through my work with empowerment and sacred sexuality I healed this life long struggle within 6 months. From there my experience of sensation shifted. Not just my experience of pleasure, but my entire sensate body shifted into openness and curiosity. I went from training with sex shamans in the jungle, to geeking out with world renown consent educators. Then, I found traditional Tantra and realized than sex and eros was just the tip of the iceberg. To embrace one shift, I would have to shift it all. My whole path. My entire perspective. Integrating the roots of Tantra have shifted my experience of life and self in a way so vast, that there are not words that could not describe the experience. The way the very world feels is changed. This is the gift of Tantra.
Today, I am trained and certified in multiple healing modalities. I offer support on a one on one basis, mentor practitioners and assist at events. I am sought as a consultant by organizations for integrating consent and boundaries, as well as by facilitators hashing out their new programs or classes.
I would be honored to support you in your journey, whatever that journey looks like. Be it simply showing up and seeing you just as you are. Or, perhaps, in sharing the tools and practices that have supported me in living a life of peace, expansion and embodiment.
Thank you for taking the time to read some of my story.
I so look forward to hearing from you.
