Or if you are moving through a life transition…
Self-study courses offer guidance for healing your energy through somatic therapy, meditation, and breathwork. These courses can help you come home to yourself as you move you into the next phase of your life with love and acceptance.
Or if you have come here to heal others…
I have designed a mentorship program to teach you how to create a safe space for anyone moving through adversity. I based this program on my years of private coaching, Kundalini Yoga & Meditation, and my background in psychology and trauma informed care. In addition, I offer online courses that help you deepen your self-care practice. As you do your work to heal, you can show up more fully in service, and together we can shift collective consciousness.
