Hi! Nice to meet you!
As a small person in a complicated time - within my home, our society, my first peace teacher came from nature, showing me that peace begins in every moment and is within.
I would go outside very, very early, and sit under a honeysuckle bush, waiting, watching the bees wake up. That feeling would go into my core, and I knew it as peace, joy, a form of god within me. It was my superpower to be this peace and wonder, anywhere, anytime -
to be with the bees, even when they weren't there.
This is the realization that placed the foundation of everything that came after...
everything I wish to awaken in you...
My Foundation, Inspiration, Training (what gets me pumped still)...
From a young age, I was still watching bees wake up, going about my own thing in the world, full of wonder, compassion, picking and choosing what rules applied to me because somehow I had a deep understanding that we have an inner authority connected to a woven bigger picture, whatever that is to each of us. Getting into nursing was a way to integrate my abilities and strengths, and provide well for myself given the options at the time. I was in the NYC area in the 1980s. A lot was happening within me and around me. Hospice, AIDS, and the interfaith movement were all relatively new. I was just entering my own adult selfhood, and single motherhood. These all converged like lightening within my own forming sense of purpose. I was ordained as an interfaith minister because my heart was so moved by the needs and injustices faced by those with AIDS. My deep spirituality found a road and a community to move with my heart and hands. It gave me the ability to honor and provide for the spiritual needs of those I was serving directly and indirectly through activism with an effective, intelligent understanding and voice. The hospice movement also spoke to both dignity and the deep, holistic, tender care that I felt was most needed. I see parallels today, still, in many communities of people. Art - there are times that words can't even scratch the awe or depths of all of this - the awe of despair or the enormity of love or infinity of wonder. I think, without art, I would not breathe. I think it saves my life and I've seen it heal relationships and revive souls again and again. It doesn't mean we have to BE artists, We simply are more than our foreminds and it gives voice to the ALLness that we are - music, writing, painting, dance, whatever. Art is magical. It must mean we are magical. Then all things are possible somehow. We can find each other, and our selves, revisit what we need, and create a newness. YES. We can ask, Why do we hunger for beauty? My education always continued with this early foundation of love and passion as its guide, as my heart opened wider with the conditions and connections to our world for myself as much as for meeting with you. I love the way learning from each other has become more accessible. My career as you experience it today still builds on my calling, my deep wonder. A peek at my doctorate is a thesis in spiritual sociology: wholeness through sacred dialogue, engagement and activism. I am. We are.
What's the Woo Woo About?
I love that we are all connected. It fascinates and grounds me. I feel so much is possible, and we are never alone. We are responsible for one another and deeply invested in belonging to each other, nature. I come from a robustly curious, spiritual, immigrant family with a complex story. I think this adds to my grounding, as well as my feeling of deep compassion and otherness. I find ways to put to use this deep well of compassion and insight that is available to me to be sure we all know we belong, are connected, have a path to peace . There are many words for “it”. Psychic, Clairs, Mediumship, Mystic, Medical Intuitive, Channel, Animal Communicator, Pet Psychic, Remote Viewer, Empath, Reader, on and on… I am not truly comfortable with any of them because most of them, to me, are pushed and pulled in a politicized or multi trillion dollar marketed industry, which makes them strange to me. But, they are all in my wheelhouse as a beautiful language as sacred as my organs and breath, even if that sounds dramatic. - they are all me. We need to call ourselves something so we can understand what we need, who’s a match. I get it. My grandmother taught me to “read cards” when I was 4 and I still read them now regularly. Their great. I scry, read auras, so many things that aren’t even on my site. I’ve always been “this way.” We have to decide what fits where in our lives - the who what where when why how of ourSelves. It is good self care and there are other things about me, about life that are interesting that have nothing to do with this. We need a mix of things as we walk the world to be our full selves. I am as I was made, just like everyone, and like everyone, I have focused on what matches my ethic, my divine rhythms and found a way to bring it together into my life as I am able, inspired by, and in agreement with. It all mixes together to be of service to that I know as, Communion, even more precisely: Love.
You and Me Together...
You are always the expert on you, your relationships and connection. I am a companion to your discoveries and growth. I am here with you when you dare to heal, focus, gain clarity as you fine tune your way on your path. We all experience a mix of times. Life widens our perspectives or may feel as if we are separated from it by how complex things can be. It is always an invitation if we allow it. We are never as alone as we may feel, even in our darkest, most intimate anguish or our most celebrated and awakened moments. We experience the truth of this together in our sessions and come through it with an understanding, lighter, focused. Together, we will get to the bone, kindly, cleanly, however we decide to meet. With the decades of experience and many skills I share with you and with your expertise of your Self, we will find your way. Peace Begins now. Each now is new.
