Purpose: Loving people awake and compassionately guiding them back to their Loving essence.

Mission: Empowering individuals, primarily women and youth, to be their authentic, beautiful and creative selves and assisting them to reconnect to Source in their own unique manner.

Intention: Developing programs, seminars and hybrid educational systems (online and in person) that support a varied group of people in laying foundations for living authentically.

My vision is to leave a legacy of practical spirituality for the modern world by combining ancestral wisdom with time tested practices and modern technologies.

My goal through every one of these actions is to continue on my soul journey towards oneness with God as an ongoing expression of my ministry. I believe that the greatest service we can bring to one another is to celebrate the unique beauty of each other’s hearts and souls as human reflections of God.

Mine is an active ministry of Loving.

Shamanic Studies

  • Initiated Dagara Elder, July 2015
    There are currently only 33 Dagara initiates in America. Dagara Elder initiation submerges initiates into a process of deep binding connection to their Ancestral roots. Processes include ceremonial rituals of purification, cleansing, reconciliation with nature spirits and an intimate reconnection with the elements. Although the actual initiation ceremonies and rituals occur during a period of 18 days, initiates must go through three years of “Life Tests.”
  • Elder Initiation, June 2012 – 2015
    A rite of passage in the Dagara tradition brought to the west and adapted to our specific cultural necessities by Malidoma Patrice Some, Ph. D. In this particular format, initiates experience over two weeks of numerous grueling spiritual, physical and emotional trials, as well as daily rituals and ceremonies in a secluded environment. This style of initiation provides the tools deemed necessary to live in alignment with a more peaceful, connected, expanded and empowered way of being, primarily within ourselves and ultimately within our communities.
