Bio

I have been on an active spiritual journey for over 20 years and a student and teacher of yoga for the last 15 years.  My background includes university studies in sociology, psychology, women’s studies, activism for human rights and the Earth, and extensive study of nutrition, natural health, and biological sciences.  I have studied with varied yoga teachers and lineages over the years and consider myself a lifelong student of Yoga.

I am committed to being an agent of planetary transformation through the evolution of  human consciousness and especially to the role that women can play in this process.  After becoming a mother in 2010, my focus turned increasingly towards supporting women’s empowerment.   As women, it is our honor, gift, and sacred responsibility to become living channels for the Divine Feminine to bring balance back to humanity and to the Earth.  I am passionate about supporting women in this process through remembering the incredible power of our wombs and our sacred feminine cycles.

The thread that weaves all of my experiences and passions together is the fire of love and longing that burns relentlessly in my Heart.  Life has taught me that the portal to the Divine is complete and total surrender to the Heart.  The practice, simply said, is that of choosing love over fear, in each moment, with each breath.  As we do this, the Heart fire grows stronger and the light it shines becomes as bright as the Sun.  As we let our own light shine, we illuminate the way for others.  Our personal transformation is planetary transformation.  This is the path of the Radiant Heart....let's walk together.

In love and service,
Sheila
