(and P.S. I love how comfortable my bed is, so thanks for that too)
And my heart breaks when I see people judging or attacking each other.
(I really am a sensitive soul)
I must say: big city living is totally overrated and suburbia is a definite NO.
I prefer mountain-y, forest-y oceanside towns with lots of soul.
Striving for a life that allows you to fly across the world JUST to hang with best friends is an absolute must.
But, at the end of the day truly loving yourself and feeling good each day is all that really matters.
And, most importantly, who inspired others to do so, too.
As a mamapreneur, I run my programs at home, online and all over the world.
My not-so-guilty pleasures are always having beautiful flowers + tropical plants around, delicious essential oils, Hawaii-sourced cacao, vegan baking with pretty much anything pumpkin or lavender, international travel, long visits with family + friends, any body of water, and hiking in the mountains.
As a life-long student, I went for a few too many advanced degrees (including a PhD in Environmental Anthropology and Spiritual Ecology) and, unfortunately, a lot of student loan debt to show for it. But, years ago, I left the world of traditional academia behind so that I could share the healing gifts that I experienced through years of nature therapy, vipassana meditation, connection with my Native American roots, plant medicine, and dreamwork + archetypal psychology, and many other modalities.
My soul was always calling for more. Calling me home to myself.
For the last ten years, I’ve been a certified coach, an educator and former professor, trained Daring to Rest yoga nidra facilitator, hatha yoga teacher (RYT 400), Akashic Records reader, Forest Bathing (Shin-rin Yoku) Guide, energy healer, intuitive, and Human Design reader. I'm also a writer - a true introvert - a certified herbalist for stress management, a pranayama/breathwork + meditation teacher, and an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
Just for fun:
I’m a Summer Solstice born baby, Aquarius Moon + Leo Rising.
I’m a Human Design “Projector” with a Splenic Authority and a Right Angle Heart of the Vessel of Love incarnation cross. I’m here to love, guide, follow my intuition, and be a lighthouse.
The archetypes I identify the most with are: the visionary, the alchemist, the explorer, the mother, the creative, and the sage. All of the archetypes are within us in some way but these are the ones I see in myself the most.
My Ayurvedic doshas (aka mind-body types) are Kapha mind + Pitta body. These change from time to time. We are always changing :)
I’m an INFP - Introvert, Intuitive, Feeling + Perceptive. They say that INFPs have a talent for self-expression + revealing their beauty and their secrets through poetic metaphors. Other INFPs: Princess Diana, Helen Keller, Johnny Depp, William Shakespeare, and J.R.R. Tolkien.
But, most importantly: I know that you want to be free and authentically YOU…thriving, creative, and abundant (<< your TRUE nature, by the way), not stressed, repressed, creatively blocked, in-the-box, and exhausted. And I know that you want to be of service and a shining light in the world, in a way that feels authentic, soul-aligned, and supportive to you and to those around you.
