My Story

As we arrive into the time of Leo on August 13, 2023, it occurred that I haven't dove deep with some of you all on my background. I began training under the Lakota tradition and Celtic traditions of spirituality and healing in my early twenties. This work continued while and studied in Bali, Indonesia with traditional healers (Jero Tapakan and Robby who is Dukun). I have developed hybrid ceremonies under my ministry license since that time.
I am medical professional under the lineage of osteopathy and graduating with my second doctorate degree in December of 2023 in which I have completed all my studies and thesis at the time of this writing.

I am also a tenured faculty that has founded and started several programs in the healing arts at UNM-Taos. I have lectured, written and spoken at conferences on various subjects contained in my CV. I have also trained hundreds of body workers and movement therapists since 2007.

Here is my CV:
