My healing journey began at a young age. In experiencing massive trauma, such as: severe mother wounding, familial abandonment, sexual assaults and rapes. My life seemed plagued by physical, emotional, mental and psychological trauma, through abusive relationships. I felt unloved, utterly victimized. By my early 20’s, in yet another suicide attempt, I experienced one of many profound awakenings to (Kundalini) energy, and planes of existence beyond this reality.
This led to my deep studies in spirituality, world religions, and healing arts therapies. I then researched personally, and within academia, female adolescent development, women’s studies and spiritual empowerment, and ancient and modern Goddess cultures. Which led to my writing a thesis on Empowering Adolescent Girls Through Goddess Stories.
Most of my life, I was confused and dismayed by how men typically reacted to me, and my intimate and sexual interactions with them often left me feeling dishonored. I embarked on a highly valuable, and lifelong venture, of researching men, too, as a result.
In my mid 20’s, I came across a workshop promoting “Sacred Sexuality”. I’d never seen these two words together before, in this life. It was an irrevocable turning point.
My total immersion into this field, and particularly Tantra, led me through my greatest sexual healing, and transformation, back to more of the real me. Tantra taught me how to reclaim my body, power, and life, through pleasure.
The practice of Sacred Spot Massage was a primary piece in this work. For my Masters degree, in Health Arts and Sciences, I wrote my dissertation on female pleasure and sexual healing, through the Neo Tantric technique of Female Sacred Spot Massage Ritual. I documented the extraordinary healing possibilities for women, that I live and teach. This work expands into the healing and empowerment for the masculine, as well.
Choosing and creating pleasure to naturally awaken the Goddess in me, underlies all I AM, and do. The feminine within knows that we can stop choosing the drama, trauma, pain, and suffering, as the only way of living in this reality. We can heal and move through whatever we consider to be “bad” experiences. We can discover, and consciously choose to create, and experience, more pleasure, with and through our bodies, with Nature, with others, personally and collectively.
For me, the road to healing is paved with more pleasure, not pain.
Haven’t we all had enough pain?
I believe we are here on this planet to be joyful, not miserable.
My life’s work focuses on sexual empowerment and healing through sex education, sacred sexuality, and holistic healing arts.
I have been studying sacred sexuality through countless trainings and schools for almost 2 decades. This included becoming an Advanced Certified Tantric Educator (ACTE through Source Tantra). My most current studies have been almost two years of delving into my teacher Jaiya’s Erotic Blueprint™ courses, and trainings, to become a licensed and Certified Erotic Blueprint Coach™. I continue to study voraciously with Jaiya as her work has escalated my erotic empowerment 1000 fold.
Sacred Temple Arts, as not only a body of work, but a way of life, arose out of my academic and experiential studies and research, as well as personal healing process. I continue to evolve, experiment, and expand with ancient and modern versions of sacred temple arts. My depth of study and training in the fields of sex and intimate relationships has been to heal my greatest sexual, intimate and relationship wounds, and to help others to do so as well. Experiencing more embodied awakening, sexual energy and love, without and/or with a partner(s), is possible.
My healing journey has led me to be committed to awakening and expanding energy, and consciousness, for embodied empowerment, and healing, sexually and otherwise. While having the most PLEASURE possible!
My motto is: Choose Pleasure As A Way Of Life!
