About Me As a Mentor
have always been drawn to the profound exchange that happens when we can share what we are most excited about learning. As
a young high school teacher in Washington DC, it became clear to me that the teacher probably learns more from the students
than the other way around; I recently heard this same thought echoed by Tito La Rosa, an Andean sound healer and musician.
Another way of expressing this is that there is wisdom to be discovered and shared, but ego has no place in the classroom
of the heart.
My heart's direction always follows the path of Andean cosmovision (working with energy, mountains, ancestors,
earth, water, and star beings), as well as some of the profound teachings from Medicine for the Earth and core shamanism.
The interrelationship of the five elements, both in our bodies and on the planet, continues to be a big teacher for me. I
draw on movement meditations from many traditions to observe and embody elemental relationships that bring us into a unity
consciousness. I believe that 'world work' complements personal healing and is necessary for the survival of
our world. You can learn a lot more about my views and practices by reading articles on the website."
