Everything you might want to know (and a little more)
A Passion for Transformation
I'm an on-the-ground street mystic, creative alchemist and guide who stirs up the sleeping genius within. I'm an advocate for authenticity and a nurturer of vulnerability. I'm passionate about freedom and truth and community. I LOVE hosting gatherings and creating circles where people can explore, grow, express themselves creatively and connect! Life is a beautiful, magical journey and I'm grateful to be a part of the dance and in service to people and planet in whatever way I can. There is nothing too good to be true. In fact, we haven't even scratched the surface of what's possible and that excites me each and every day.
My journey has taken me halfway across the world to India, South America, Europe and all corners of the US. Over the years, I've been blessed with the opportunity to meet and even study with some of the world's greatest innovators, mystics and teachers including Stan and Christina Grof, Jack Kornfield, Joseph Campbell, Angeles Arrien, Jean Huston, Virginia Satir, John Lilly, Gregory Bateson, Michael Harner, Chungliang Al Huang, Alex Gray, Werner Erhard, Don Miguel Ruiz and many more who have chosen to remain out of the limelight.
My time at Esalen Institute in my early twenties helped create the foundation of the work I do, especially the way I run my groups. Here's a wonderful video that captures the essence of what Esalen is all about:
I have been a serial entrepreneur since my early twenties. I began working with clients in 1986, first as a massage therapist, then as a group facilitator, motivational workshop leader and life/business coach. My work draws on a myriad of life experiences including over three decades of training in meditation, visualization, affirmations, intuitive inner work and journeying, emotional and physical healing, mystical awareness, and connecting with Source.
My dance with words has been a constant in my life, dazzling me with their ability to make sense out of the chaos and uplift the ordinary into the realm of the extraordinary. Early on, I fell madly in love with story writing and could never get enough of the endless playground of the imagination. This fascination only grew as I explored poetry, personal essay, memoir and novel writing. My latest passion is screenwriting and playwriting, mostly due to the intense pleasure that comes from having one's work move from the page to the theater and screen.
I have the privilege of being mom to two awesome sons, Julian and Miles. They brought the light of the universe with them and lit up my life with their music, their open hearts and deep intuitive wisdom. Walking the path with them has been an incredible blessing and I'm always curious what they're up to next since they're forever finding their way into new projects and adventures.
