Profound and pivotal Influences of my life and career
My Beloved Mommy Elaine Influenced me in profound ways introducing me to bodywork and the use of essential oils, crystal and energy work at a very young age. She regularly practiced bodywork on all her children from the day we where born. Her wise wisdom raised us through Rudolf Steiner schooling where alternative forms of learning are readily studied, painting drawing and dance a impeccable part of school from day one of kindegarden. Our home was a large lot of farmland overlooking the Atlantic ocean. Our play friends are animals, the nature is still my home place no matter where I go.
My Beloved sister Anjali influenced me as a advnced Myofacial release therapist who studied under John Barns directly for many years receiving profound work and giving profound work. Anjali always acted as a guide in my life for everything introducing me to Bikram Yoga in Maui Hawaii, and later on Pahoa ashtanga yoga shala on the Big Island of Hawaii. Anjali also introduced me to raw foods and live food nutrition. she found the Gerson clinic in Big Island Hawaii where I learned the depth of juicing and cleansing, that was a profound support my mom in her cancer process. Anjali worked at the clinic side by side Maya Baylac and inspired many patience with her love and food including our Mommy, where we took care of her together in alternating shifts in her final days, following the rigorous Gerson schedule of enemas and juicing with her.
