Meet My Teachers
“Whether they are raised in indigenous or modern culture, there are two things that people crave: the full realization of their innate gifts, and to have these gifts approved, acknowledged, and confirmed."

The Healing Wisdom of Africa
Jeanie was my first yoga instructor and meditation teacher. She was the first person I met who challenged me to see life through a very different lens. Jeanie is an incredible teacher who offers worldwide retreats and trainings as well as initiations into the mantra practice of Neelakantha Meditation.
Malidoma is a West African Elder, world-renowned author and teacher. I've had the honor of attending several Elemental Ritual Programs and Intensives lead by Malidoma. The experiences always felt magical and life altering. During my first private divination with Malidoma, I believe he saw my abilities as a healer years before I was ready to discover them for myself. He awakened in me a deep desire to follow the path of healing myself, and ultimately, others.
Jenny has become a beloved mentor, healer, and spiritual teacher to me. Through her workshops, I have learned to connect with the Nature Spirits and walk a path of partnership with the Elemental forces. I completed Jenny's Soul Illumination Mentoring Program in 2019 and hope to someday travel on a sacred journey with her.
Susan was the first healer I ever met and worked with. She introduced me to my first experience into the realms of Spirit through the ancient form of African Cowry Shell Divination. Susan awakened the part of me that was yearning to walk a deeply devoted spiritual path and helped me realize my potential long before I could see it for myself.
