I am a girl drawn to the underbelly of existence, the hidden way, the subtle currents that stir humans into and out from under the shadows. To that end, I've spent a good deal of this lifetime groveling around in the vaults of contemplative, mystical and esoteric wisdom traditions, specifically the sort that honor and encompass the sacred feminine. Dreamspace, and the fecund darkness of the inner world are my home geographies.
My on-going drench in depth psychology, mythology, metaphysics and the arts is supported by more than 13 years of formal meditation study, (Bon Buddhism/Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche) 10+ years as a somatic educator, (Rolfing/Structural Integration) 5 years as a meditation instructor, a 3-year professional training in Essential Shamanism, (Julie M. Kramer) and a partridge in a pear tree.
Through these services, I hope to provide gateways to imagination, bodied intelligence and spiritual empowerment.
*Animism ~ The understanding that phenomena, places and beings have agency and are imbued with a distinct spiritual essence. The perception that all things: plants, stones, weather patterns...even words, are animated and that the spiritual and material are a continuum.
