I am passionate about the teaching and healing work I do, assisting people to live more fulfilling lives from practicing stillness, developing greater compassion and allowing self-discovery. I teach people how to connect with greater calm, presence, and trust in themselves and in the Universe.
After years of doing healing work with Shiatsu Massage, Acupuncture and Reiki, I began to feel that I needed to go deeper to help people make lasting change. I witnessed people suffering from stress and emotional states that often disabled their healing process, and having suffered from anxiety and depression myself, I came to feel there had to be more. I knew I had to DO more...and so I went within. And in my first month of committing to meditation as the pathway to my own well-being...I felt a brilliant light go on! THIS is what we need to bring healing to our world!
In 2015 I completed the Masters of Wisdom Meditation Teacher Training program with internationally known meditation and stress management teacher, davidji. I have such intense gratitude for my amazing teacher, who guides us all gently to find the guru within. This training was a life changing experience! Meditation was the missing link that brought me deep inner calm, greater confidence, creativity, lower blood pressure, better sleep and improved vitality. Every day meditation helps me to connect more deeply, make positive meaning, find self-acceptance, and bring healing both to myself and others. Upon completing my Advanced Deeper Still Teacher Training with davidji in the fall of 2018, I am even more dedicated to the wondrous effects that meditation brings to my life, and the lives of those that I teach.
