We are Love, remembering itself.
Have you ever played a role in order to "get love," only to discover you felt inauthentic, isolated and trapped inside your own life? Me too. Sometimes we master the external game only to realize the internal world is still suffering. Or, sometimes we've done the inner work, and can't seem to get the external results we desire. I created my entire practice based on tools I wish I had when I needed them.
I live my version of ultimate freedom. I do what I want, when I want, where I want, with whom I want to do it. I spend 4-9 months of the year traveling and working from retreat locations, with dear friends. My body, mind, emotional state and spiritual practice are my top priorities. I live in alignment with my teachings, I take incredibly good care of myself every day and prioritize my own well-being so I can be of massive service to the world. I genuinely love myself, hold myself gently, show up to my own work and allow others to do the same for themselves.
I live what I teach, every single day.
But it wasn't always this way. As an only child with spiritual gifts I didn't understand, I grew up feeling isolated, alone, highly-sensitive, and different. I started drinking at 13 years old in order to "fit in" and tune out the extra-sensory information I was receiving on a daily basis. I learned how to be who I thought I was "supposed" to be - a free-spirited, popular party girl with her shit together - someone who everyone wanted to be around. I built my entire life around being well-liked, and I got really good at it.
Throughout my 20s I felt split between two worlds. No joke I would go from the yoga studio to the club. I'd home cook an organic vegan meal and then take shots until 6am at an afterparty. I felt like myself nowhere. One day in 2014, I woke up feeling trapped and bored as hell in my beautiful life in San Diego, so I decided to scrap it all and move to the Caribbean. I taught yoga full-time, spent days in the ocean, and made new friends.
For a while, I felt more like me than ever before.
But then, 2017 happened. I came home from work to the most heart-shattering experience imaginable at the time - the love of my life ended our relationship out of nowhere. I was absolutely devastated for the first time in my adult life. I had never felt pain that deep, and wondered how I would ever survive it. I spent about four months crying on a couch wondering if the pain would ever end, and a couple more months slowly putting my life back together.
It was right about then that I received a call with the next most horrifying news I could imagine - my best friend died unexpectedly from an accidental overdose. Again, my heart was completely broken. A couple months after that, back-to-back hurricanes devastated my Caribbean home of St. Thomas, wildfires scorched my hometown of Sonoma County, and my mom went into an induced coma, nearly dying of multiple lung infections. It was an entire year of living every single worst nightmare I had ever had. I was afraid to wake up every morning, certain that something else even worse would happen. I could hardly believe how resilient we humans really are and wondered how so many like me had made it through such painful moments.
It wasn't until I discovered the power of radical commitment that everything in my life shifted, and the work that resulted became my medicine for the world. I learned what becomes possible when you start taking impeccably good care of yourself, I learned that vulnerability is the path to true connection, and I learned that our pain is what transmutes us. I took everything life gave me and turned it into art. Today, I run my own business doing what I truly love, changing people's lives in powerful ways and contributing to a more harmonious existence for all. I learned how to move through all of it with grace, ease, and even some fun.
This is why I'm so passionate about showing people the life they dream of is absolutely possible, no matter what they've experienced. In fact, your big dreams are possible because of what you've experienced. Opening truly is the path to genuine freedom and love. Your shame is a lie. You are safe to open and be the real you. You deserve to discover the truth of who you are and live in complete alignment with that, and I'm here to help you realize and embody that truth.
