Since Friday I have been evacuated from my beautiful home in Topanga. As the fires continue in Los Angeles, it’s unclear when I’ll return. Despite being displaced from home it has been a rich time filled with lessons and a deepening of community. It was frightening to wake up without electricity and cell phone service. I packed a bag, grabbed the most important things and drove out of the canyon. When I saw the smoke coming over the mountain I gasped.Read More
If you knew you were going to die next week, can you honestly say you’re living life to the fullest? Living everyday like it’s your last? Are there any decisions you’ve been challenged by and if so, I invite you to make the choice from the mindset and perspective, “If I knew I was going to die next week then I choose…” Makes quite the difference huh? Who would you hug and spend time with if you knew you were going to die next week? My wish for all of us is to live each day and moment like it was our last–to the fullest. And if this were the case what would you do differently today? Go do it!Read More
There are countless ways to see and make sense of reality. That’s what every philosophy, religion and spirituality attempts to do.

One aspect of personal development is about taking responsibility for our life and actions. It’s also about opening our minds and hearts to other ways of thinking, living and being. Each one of us is a product of the family we were born into, as well as the culture and city we grew up in. Education, jobs and life experience also play a role in how we view the world. What seems normal to one person could be totally foreign to another. Who’s to say who’s right and who’s wrong?Read More
A very interesting thing happened when I was in Colombia that made me realize we’re more ready than we think we are. Ready for what exactly? Well, EVERYTHING. I blocked out a month of my life to study with a native healer in Colombia. Yes, I already work as a healer. Yes, I’ve studied so much in this field. But of course I’m always hungry to learn more. When I arrived he asked me many questions and tested me in several ways then said, “You only need 5 days with me. Come back Monday.” I was in utter shock. But my flight back to the States what a month later. I couldn’t help but think, “Why is this happening?”Read More

Those who follow their heart are happy. One way to define happiness is living life guided by your heart.

Though injustice is a part of life, I feel we have the capacity to transform it, prevent it from happening, learn from it, grow from it and even create opportunities from it. We can write a brighter future for humanity. We can shift our perception from being a victim and witness, to being a protagonist and example for others by choosing how we respond to situations of injustice.Read More

I love to dance. Dance is my medicine. It’s therapy. Food for our soul. It’s something we humans have done since the beginning of time. It’s written in our DNA. What happened to this lost art that allows us to embody our prayers, let go of tension and stress and release what is no longer serving us? Why have people stopped moving to the drum when it’s a natural antidepressant and teaches us about relating with ourselves and others?Read More
Healing is something we can consciously choose to experience, either guided by ourselves or another, when we wish to alleviate, enhance or change something within or around us. The imperfections and dis-ease we experience in life are signals as to where we need to pay more attention, aka where we need healing. When we experience healing, we evolve, becoming healthier and wiser. Treatment and healing must happen in the energy field for TRUE cure to be achieved. REAL prevention of disease and optimization of functioning happens through energetic hygiene and enhancement, which can be achieved through a multitude of ways–and this is what I now specialize in.Read More
Many people talk about this as the awakening of humanity into greater consciousness. Part of this awakening of consciousness also includes the awakening of the divine feminine (and the divine masculine too). I’d like to highlight the awakening of the divine feminine, because for so long the feminine was suppressed in our culture, and in some cultures it still is today, and why it's so important it is awakening.Read More

Cleaning is a spiritual practice too. This blogpost shares all the reasons you need to be cleaning your mind, body, soul and life from several perspectives. Your continued growth, evolution and creation of a life you love depends on it!
It seems kind of obvious right? Be yourself. This is one of those cliche phrases that you hear over and over and it seems so obvious. But are you really embodying it? Anytime we hold back from expressing what we are living, experiencing or feeling in any moment, we are NOT being ourselves. It takes courage to be ourselves. Consciously or subconsciously fear of rejection is the most common reason behind us not being ourselves. We think the other person won’t like us.Read More
Whenever I’m feeling down or not myself, I meditate. Meditation brings me back to my center. I ALWAYS feel better after I meditate.Whenever I want to create anything, I meditate first to listen and observe what wants to be created. I’d go as far to say I owe the beauty and success of my life to my meditation practice. Meditation is medicine for everything and so much more!Read More
I just concluded a three month experience in Damanhur where I entered into a deep, intimate space of presence and centering with myself. During the monk path, I followed certain rules and was operating from a different energetic space, while still living a pretty normal life. To me it felt like being a modern day monk, where my work, clothes and home life remained the same, but I was more mindful about every aspect of my life including food, words and relationships. In this post I share the TOP 7 things I learned.Read More

The funny thing is, since my spiritual awakening I’ve had the desire to be a Monk. Call me strange, but there’s a part of me that really loves silence, solitude and simplicity. This opportunity is possible because in Damanhur, there’s a beautiful underground temple that is filled with art work and some of the purest healing energies I’ve personally experienced in the world. At first it was more of a feeling than anything else. I knew I had to do it and I wanted to.Read More
The best preventative medicine and a key to creating a happy life is to invest in yourself. When we aren’t feeling happy–when we feel sadness, pain and suffering of ANY kind–this means it’s time to STOP, take a step back and examine our lives. It’s time to reflect on what we are doing (and not doing) to contribute the situation. It’s time to assess where we need to focus our efforts and see what about ourselves and/or our environment NEEDS to change.Read More
