Personal Update 2.15.2020
"I Move with The Wind"

Can't keep track of me? I have moved around quite a bit over the past several years. After three decades in Massachusetts, I heeded a calling to move back to my home state of Wyoming in 2013. I opened my second retail store in Jackson, Wyoming (Boston area store being my first) in spring 2013 and closed it in 2016 due to an incredible buyout of my lease that I couldn't pass up. I couldn't find a comparable location nor could I find another residential lease, so I moved to the Boulder, Colorado area for a year (2016-2017). I taught in Denver and surrounding towns in addition to traveling back and forth to New York to teach.

I moved back to Jackson Hole during an incredibly personal inward transformational time during 2017 - 2019 where I deepened my shamanic practices. I spent two years wildcrafting, working with the sacred energy of the land and its elders. My practice of working with energy expanded. I began remembering alchemy from previous lifetimes, specifically in Atlantis and Egypt. More to come on that later. I am currently developing events, workshops and trainings in this practice.

I am called to travel and move often. I've learned over the years that I am called to areas that are in great need of healing. More often than not, the land has been overused/abused, there has been ancestral suffering in these areas, and there is an energetic density that needs transformation. I joke that I often feel like a tumbleweed at times. I go wherever the winds take me.
