some of my story & studies

I believe the first 7-years of a child’s life are known as the formative years for our personage? It brings me deep gratitude then, to see how by age 8, my mother, a meditation teacher of Maharishi Ayurveda, then shared with me breathing and meditation practices to commence with the work required in this lifetime.

I was initiated from a young age into my subtle energy practices, and most definitely they have morphed, shifted, expanded, and most definitely changed as I grew. They shared with me practices to support me in my life, as well as were a reliable tool-kit to assist me in exploring the longer self-reflective journeys of “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?”, amongst the continuous barrage of life’s challenges, mistakes, and lessons to face, experience, and digest. I was a child that remembered, hence rebelled at quite a young age from authoritarian systems that were still placed into our societies. I learned quickly that people didn't like to talk about Spirit, were afraid of insight and truths shared, and learned to shut it down. But then, my body wasn't so happy of this 'cloaking' of our connections to the in-between. My stumbles, difficulties, and further discomforts progressed.

My study of subtle energy extended beyond the home practices shared of the branches of yoga, by my teens I began to experience immense pain in my physical body and began to learn further of how the physical body works with our energy body. I began to practice more physical yoga asana (postures) & pranayama (breathwork) to support my subtle works with consciousness, which helped with my work into the uncomfortable. This led to me studying and training in Hatha Yoga for years with teachers, culminating in me receiving multiple teaching certifications from 2008-2012 in teaching methodology, yoga asana, meditation, philosophy and pranayama, as well as the further practices of the even subtler stages of practice. As I began facilitating group practices, first locally in Toronto and then Vancouver, my interest in the energy alchemy experienced within my yoga practice led me to explore the Reiki healing method of Usui.

Reiki and Yoga opened within me my feared connections with my intuition, as well as only affirmed my gifts that I came into this lifetime with, a capacity to move through many subtle realms, as well as communicate to energy beings that may not be in form. I started to channel further messages from Spirit, those most Divine, ancestors of my bloodlines, and Ancients. As I traveled to South America in 2012, to connect with a part of my paternal heritage, I had already formed, by this point in my life, community with other seers, psychics and Divine messengers. Yes, we tend to gravitate towards eachother. I began to further work with the energy of the elements, the land, waters, and whispers of my ancestors, and learned with them how to heal, as I continued to remember. Remembering my soul experiences, retrieving aspects of me, restoring me, as I stumbled along to see how to navigate all these deep experiences amidst a society that shared with me ways that did not support life, or my gifts.

My healing journey and study of subtle energy supported me in gently healing from multiple traumatic experiences, abusers, manipulators (and energy vampires), as well as learning how to navigate beyond the systems structured in the world, like patriarchy, supremacy, and capitalism. It helped me to grow further capacity and strength to unlearn and unravel intergenerational patterns of being, that were unsustainable forwards. It shared with me how to grow healthy boundaries and more compassion. As a teacher, I am constantly learning. As a healer, I humbly acknowledge the cycles of healing that are inter-mixed with growth, and tend to be in regular contemplation/reflection amongst the processes of transmutation. Subtle energy practices, further travel in our realms of consciousness, as well as it’s medicine, have been the most impactful support system for me to do immense work through my shadows and darkness, as well as to learn of our human capacity, as alchemists. I learned of sovereignty, truth, love, and protection. I give deep heartfelt gratitude to all the teachers and healers I have continued to study with over the years of refining, revising, and rebirthing.

At times, subtle energy medicine has been over-simplified, for it is simple. But, there are multiple layers of energy to be explored, with different skillsets asked for, as you continue. I hope that my work shared with you can support an understanding of the practices to accommodate further capacity to assist your transformations and soul healing. It is gentle work that grows and shifts as you do, paced over time, with spaces between. 

i applaud those who take the time to read further, exploring those who i name that have supported my walk & work with Spirit. they each have taught me, while supporting my own curiosities & wonder of all that it is to be HUMAN.

in Yoga:

many thanks to MAHARISHI Mahesh Yogi for initiating my mother as a teacher of Transcedental Meditation, which she then taught my adopted-father, my siblings and i. My first initiation within Yoga was held in 1989. I give thanks to the multitude of yoga practices and studies that supported my walk since, and the teachers that shared a deep love and appreciation for the methods they were initiated into, especially Michael Siddall, Vieslav Krystyan, Christine Reeves, Christina Sell, Darren Rhodes, Paul Muller-Ortega, Christopher Hareesh Wallis, and Douglas Brooks. I give thanks to Roberta Trzebinski for her further teachings in Breath and fascia release from a Pilates perspective. I give gratitude to the Kashmir Shaivism lineage of tantrika studies (and the goddess-centered Hinduism called Śrīvidyā), as well as to the oral transmissions still made available by the late Swami Lakshmanjoo.

in Reiki:

deep gratitude to Darlene Dee Hobson (now retired) for initiating me into her Reiki lineage in 2008, which was 7 human steps away from the initial Source energy shared with Mikao Usui, who created the Usui Shiki Ryoho method of ReiKI. I also give thanks to those who attuned and taught me in these leveled practices as i moved to my own capacity to teach and attune in 2012, both Jane Davis and Kelly Rasch. I continued to teach ReiKI for 11 years, and share immense gratitude to all whom I met amongst my travels with Source energy. I also share heartfelt bows to Kathy Roseborough, who mentored me in my path of dance with the sacred dual energies, supporting me in accessing and trusting furthermore my connection to most ascended teachers of union that will not be named here. Reiki is channeling Divine energy, and was a truly supportive method to assist me in reacquainting myself with my gifts.

in Spirit connection:

sincere heart songs shared with dear Earthkeeper Nukumi Selina for her mentorship journey and generous gifts in teaching from her Indigenous and most Cosmic pathways of connection with Body, Earth, and Spirit realms. I give deep bows to having the honour to connect remotely with many teachers (some more listed on my contact page), but must share immense gratitude to the Inca Medicine School and the Paqo shamans of the Apaza family lineage from the Qero nation. I look forward to continuing on the Paqo path in-person, Divine-willing. I also share many thanks to the experiences with Spirit that were received in group sessions with Manari Ushigua, Marcela Lobos, and Marilu Shinn.

on healing:

many potent healers have supported my life-force and further remembrance of the medicine peoples of my own blood lines. I give offerings of immense love & devotion to first and foremost my beloved Ancestors, of my Norse/Celtic lines, and my Inca & Indigenous lines, who supported me in healing from the carried supremacy in my body. They helped me through some of the darkest days and years. I give thanks to the Angels, Los Animales, and the Ancients that have protected and supported my path as i moved through the difficulties, traumas, and tribulations of my learning ground of this lifetime. There was much to be rectified, many courses of action from past lifetimes and my bloodlines that my soul agreed to support shifting in this life. I give big hugs and bows to Paco, my beloved familiar, dog helper and teacher. A special shout out to the wild dogs of Peru, who walked with me during my 'lone' travels there, especially Pilau, and their shared connections, as we witnessed the wonders of sunrise and sunsets. The additional healers in human form that i was guided to trust and open my energies to, for their supportive body, breath, and energy works were: Cara Houpt, Kelly Romanick, Dr. Farah Hirani, Dr. A. Ali, Serah Ruth Goldberg, Natoya Hall, Caroline Sabbah, Clare Kenty, Kristi Clements, and Beth Rutty.

in gardening:

Thanks to my dad, for first sharing the joy of gardening at home, getting into to the dirt, and with steady effort, enjoying what grows. Thank you to the intensive training with Linda Kool and Laura Poppleton of Kool Country Gardens, your combined knowledge of plants and gardening was incredible! Deep gratitude to the energy of the plants, the earth, and the ancestors, that supported this trek into caring for our earth, and learning how to support a more sustainable future.

many thanks to:

the many wise ones that have crossed my path, along my travels and transformations. Those whom embraced my queerness and witchiness were much appreciated, and i give gratitude to those that also respected my non-binary nature, even before i could speak of it, or write about it. Gratitude to Daniel G, Jacki K, Krista Marie S, Chrys M, Christi-an S, jamilah malika a-b, Noora, Despina M, Jody L, Dr Jenny M, Cian K, Riquel E, and many many more of YOU.

so where am i now?

My travels have currently placed me in Meaford, Ontario, of Treaty 18, 1818, on the Chippewas of Saugeen First Nations, the Ojibway, Anishinabewaki and many more Indigenous peoples. I continue to learn of the land I am presently on and continue to further my relations with the medicine of all that grows here. I enjoy gardening, painting with Spirit, dancing, singing, and expanding community connections. I share my time with the lands and nearby waters, as well as whom I choose to share space over time with. I share gratitude to the growing international & intergenerational circles that are gathering of humans, plants, stones, and animals, together on this Earth. As I make peace with who I am, care and love for who I continue to revolve into, I look forward to sharing connections with you, as well as remembering more of our shared magick this season.
