Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Because every experience I have had here! has been AMAZING!!!
Every single time, the people I have stayed with have been just perfect for that moment, we ended up having friends in common or going to the same festivals, school, etc.
No coincidences here! we had to meet each other one way or another... thanks for couchsurfing!
I`m a dancer, among other activities of my life, dancing is what makes me truly free, I dance to express, to release and to connect with my body. Dancing has become a bliss in my life since I started getting involved in liquid dance, contact improve and ecstatic dance. From a young age I developed a great taste for music and dance, which made me explore different types of dance like Hawaiian, Belly Dance, Tribal, Temple Dance, Oddissi, Kalbelia Gypsy Dance, and African Dance. Despite all the types of dance that I explored, I have never been inclined to devote to any particular style. And with new inspirations and spiritual practices such as Tantra, Temple Arts and Tai chi I fused all my elements to create a Ritual Performance to embody a Prayer Dance with intentional archetypes.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share
I have so many gifts to share, I'm currently exploring the new paradigm, trying to finish my transmutation, getting out of the cocoon, almost ready to open my wings and fly!
My soul purpose now is to help others go through their own transmutation, with more information, with exercises, with my own experience.
I've been traveling for many years working on Festival Production, Retreat Centers, Performing and learning. I went back to my home town after the loss of my mother where I began to focus on spiritual practices, I was initiated on the Mahamudra Teachings and Anuttara Tantra Yoga, I also became an Oneironaut practitioner alongside Reiki, Tai chi and Chi gong. With the help of spiritual practices, healing arts and knowledge I invoked the power of the serpent within to help me transmute all pain and channeled "The Ritual of the Serpent" as my medicine.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I have many gifts to share! I've been studying the therapeutic use of clay, my cultural background and lineage inspired me to perform traditional rituals and sweat lodges. I design head wear and accessories, I also make my performing outfits, My most recent interests are Ayurvedic Aromatherapy, Ayurvedic Nutrition and cooking.
