TTC Bahamas 2007 - Yashoda 827-1-1

I am a Mind, Body, & Spirit Coach, WholeFood Alchemist, Yogini and Spiritual Gangster.

I appreciate when things fit into little boxes but get frustrated with the form of the box itself.

I believe in truth and see beauty in, well, pretty much everything.  I believe that all living beings have a right to be free and experience vitality and that health is a definition that must be written by each of us individually.

For many years I was in search of my purpose.  Not so many moons ago, I stopped searching and guess what?  My purpose found me.  The interesting thing was that it didn’t feel like I thought it would.  It didn’t fit neatly into a designated box nor did it have a title, it was more of a feeling or rather, a fire.

Synchronicity became the lipstick that marked the labyrinth floor, wounds were licked, scars celebrated and my years of pain, sabotage and suffering transformed into sacred breadcrumbs, sprinkled upon dark forest paths, in the hopes of guiding others back to the fork in the road where the may have perhaps taken a turn that went against their intuition.

I was guided through my own peril and now I am a guide.  Once I discovered this, my fire wanted to set ablaze the fire that lay dormant in others due to ill-health, spiritual dis-ease and a lack of self -love, so that they too may experience its warmth, passion and urgency.  My little teeny-weeny goals suddenly metamorphisized into big, juicy, game changing goals.  It wasn’t just about me anymore.

The message was clear: Do everything you can to guide humans back to their innate, intuitive definition of health and balance so that they can vibrate at the powerful frequencies they are meant to.

I have discovered that my fire manifests through my understanding of nourishment body, mind & soul, the alchemy of creating healing recipes, tonics and potions out of nature’s raw abundance and teaching others to do the same, wild compassion for the human emotional and energetic system and a great respect for humanity and the divine. 

Oh, I’m a writer too.  Published, which I’m told gives me cred.  So there it is.

I feel most comfortable in the forest.  And I lose track of time…a lot.  I birth, re-birth, and transform with the cycles of the moon and this is the undercurrent of my natural rhythm. I am curious about what love feels like inside the caverns of another heart. Oh, and sometimes, I don’t ever come to a point. The recipes I create begin in my dreams and they are my art, my devotion, my medicine and and one of the ways in which I communicate.

My intention is to offer, in complete devotion, the wisdom and knowledge that I have been blessed with in my life in the hopes that it serves to elevate, inspire, yummify, and illuminate your journey to radiant health.

And now for the fancy part…
