As we build community, it is important to find teachers, friends and colleagues that resonate with us - meet us where we are at, so we can fill each other's cups a little fuller. I hope to make that journey easier by sharing a few words about myself.
Like many in Hawaii, I have profound love and respect for the ocean. That is where I go to reset, to grieve, to ponder, to play. Nature is nurturing and therefore an important part of my practice. I strive to reinforce our connection to each other and support the healing that arises from living consciously.
Regardless of what modality I am working in, my intention is to help reduce suffering of all shapes and sizes. I am motivated by the belief that as we work to be more present and heal ourselves, we automatically uplift those around us.
The path of knowledge
Tracing our lineage of teachers is an important part of preserving the integrity of the knowledge we ourselves seek to embody and share.
I had the privilege of attending Jivamukti teacher training in 2011 with the Jivamukti co-founders David Life and Sharon Gannon. David and Sharon have three gurus: Shri K. Pattabhi Jois, Swami Nirmalananda and Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati.
My mentor at teacher training was the luminous Andrea Boyd of Satsang Yoga in Charleston, SC. I am blessed to have many other teachers in my life that continue to guide and inspire me.
I received Reiki attunements from Dr. Eric Rubin, of North Point Chiropractic in San Francisco. Dr. Rubin's teacher was Maya Vajra, who studied under John Gray, one of Hawayo Takata's students.
