"I am a healer and an artist. In 1999, I chose to merge the two in a ritual theatre performance called The Living Tarot. The idea came to me in a dream -- people were costumed like the archetypes of the Tarot and delivering profound messages to seekers of guidance about their lives. When the dream unfolded into reality, the Tarot embodied a healing art that was epically transformative for its audiences and its players. Our group covered a broad expanse of the United States each year sharing activated wisdom with its captivated audiences. I relied on my skills as an intuitive, a dancer, and an actor for 4 years. This brought me to my next phase as a healer which was to learn how to use the gift of my healing hands. I became a massage therapist and Reiki Master in 2006 and then learned the practice of Oriental Medicne in 2012, recieving my Masters of OM in 2015."
"Why I chose OM was that I had friends who treated me with OM and I was always amazed at how they could make me feel better by inserting needles in me. It seemed like magic to me and I wanted to learn this magic."
"Now that I've begun my practice of OM, I feel drawn to learning and sharing my musicality with my voice and other instruments. I see the potential of voice and tone as healing as well."
