My Passions

I am a passionate woman.  I do what I love, the rest just comes.  Yes, it's really that simple!  

I love dancing, I love drumming, I love wrestling with my dog, I love doing projects with my husband, I love digging in the dirt, I love singing with my pals, I love calling the many ancient names of God, and I love encouraging people to take safe risks. Take a leap!

Here are some experiences and tools that have changed my life and contributed to this ever-evolving, ever-loving woman I am. Infinite gratitude to all my teachers and mentors.
