Welcome friends *Bowed Head* thankful to have you here!
Much of my journey revolves around looking for a remedy to our current human experience.
After undergrad, I worked in corporate marketing in Chicago while leading immersive experiences to Israel and Europe in the summer.
The happiness and health that comes as a side effect of a retreat led to me understanding that humans need regular reminders to take a step back and breathe; we must have days that are different from our orderly, regimented schedule.
I searched for a holistic protocol that would aid in some of the stress and anxiety I was seeing. In that same breath, I noticed the younger generations were suffering as well, if not at a more rapid pace with the increase in social media and unrealistic beauty standards.
My journey took me to the Middle East where I learned to live off the land, eat intuitively and holistically, reconnect to my lineage and understand the diverse levels of conflict.
This led me to India. I served in the slums of Mumbai and educated youth on hygiene and women on self-empowerment. While in India, I spent significant amount of time in silence, lived in many ashrams and spiritual centers and studied meditation, Ayurveda and yogic philosophy.
Upon returning to the states, I began my Masters in Clinical Psychology and Education at Columbia University. Here I studied the marriage between clinical psychology and spiritual practice.
Today, I facilitate innovative mindfulness workshops in the areas of meditation, emotional intelligence, positive psychology, conflict competency, nutrition, yoga, and spiritual, personal and professional development.
These workshops help foster individual and corporate wellness, advancing team collaboration and decreasing illness, stress and anxiety. I've developed the workshops based on my experience living and learning in the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
In authentic truth, I believe I learned a skill that must be shared. Meditation is life-altering, and I'd adore sharing the practice with you.
