I am creative soul with many passions. Helping people feel good about themselves is my main priority in life. My interest in Indian/eastern thinking was inherited from my parents, both academics and travellers at heart. My mother had a deep connection to India and left her body in Bangalore when I was a baby. After becoming disenchanted with western schools of philosophical and psychological thought, I discovered yoga and astrology in my late teens. Western astrology did not answer enough questions, so naturally i kept investigating and researching and found the roots of astrology as we know it, in it’s Vedic format of Jyotish, commonly known in the west as Vedic Astrology.
Jyotish being a vedanga, or a limb of the Vedas and provides us with eyes to see. I have been studying Jyotish for over four years. Vedic astrology and the life sciences are a life-long passion and study that is never ending.
While Jyotish works with the practical application of science, spirituality, and self-knowledge, ka huna bodywork therapy works with the physical integration of the psycho-spiritual/emotional aspect of ourselves, assisting the movement of trapped energies in our bodies.
Every human being is inherently vulnerable. In the heart of vulnerability lies our true self; open and trusting. Finding the courage to accept and own one’s vulnerability is one of the first steps to living authentically. It is my desire to assist people in discovering more of their authentic self, to understand why they are here and where they are going.
