At home in the body

After five years of working in IUC/CCU, she quickly realized the impermanence of life and sought holistic health and healing centers in Marin County California. She seized the opportunity to direct the freestanding Marin Birth Center and the Wellness Center which focused on the physical and the spiritual aspects of the body. She taught meditation, therapeutic touch, energy work, childbirth education, spiritual midwifery and assisted at births. This was a very miraculous time in her life. After serving this spiritual community she understood it was time to take this valuable information to the public.
