My life was a mess. I had a choice, continue living in ignorance or wake up and live consciously. I started working with a spiritual psychotherapist who introduced me to Buddhism and Reiki. My healing journey had started.
After completing my degree in Sociology, I returned to school for my Post-Grad in Addiction Counselling. During this time, I started working with N.D. Sat Dharam Kaur who introduced to the world of yoga, and more specifically, Kundalini Yoga.
Yoga started to chang my life. My allergies disappeared, digestive issues cleared, and I experienced healing on all levels from this spiritual practice. I had to learn more and completed my first Yoga Teacher Training.
My thirst for knowledge led me to Peru where I deepened how Eastern philosophies treat substance misuse.
