About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live, laugh, love, evolve

ABOUT ME

Live, laugh, love, evolve

Every day I wake up with one goal in mind: to make a positive impact on the lives that I interact with daily. There are so many people out there with out hope. Maybe my smile or kindness will just add something special to their day!

I am passionate about healing and the evolution of the human mind, body, spirit, heart. My life's purpose is to hold space for and facilitate this work. Recognizing and surrendering to this call, I co-founded Dragonfly Healing Center: www.dragonflycenter.org.

Vision:

Dragonfly Healing Center provides a safe, nurturing sanctuary for people of all walks of life to heal holistically and cultivate the well-being of the whole person, inspiring people to reconnect with the light within and find their soul’s purpose.

Our diverse range of programs foster the human potential movement through empowered healing and transformation, social change global outreach projects, and sustainable, conscious living. We are committed to creating a shift in the global consciousness. We are driven by our purpose and a cause to promote health, healing, creative expression, life balance and vitality with authenticity and compassion.

Mission:

To facilitate positive transformation for the healing of individuals and our planet.

Goal:

Within 3 years, our goal is to establish a sanctuary for people to get away and rejuvenate with serene grounds and trails; reconnecting with themselves through our daily workshops, daylong, weekend, and week-long retreats. We offer a diverse range of programs geared towards holistic health and the well-being of the whole person. Our educational and retreat community offers a wide range of self-discovery focus areas: interpersonal, spiritual, professional, sexual, creative, financial, environmental, mental, and emotional.

What this will look like: Dragonfly Healing Center is the complete retreat experience. We offer zen-like accommodations (from tents to premium rooms) for all of our guests. Our café hosts communal meals with fresh, organic gourmet gluten-free, vegetarian meals and juices. Guests will find optimal health at our East-West integrative health center. We have an educational institute for professional and leadership training as well as classes to nurture our youth. Because of our commitment to healing individuals and our planet, we have a social farm where we utilize biodynamic farming practices to assist in addiction recovery therapy. The farm produces produce for our café and the community. We are a thriving, supportive intentional community.

Our social change outreach projects seek to alleviate suffering through out the world. Some of our projects have included: healing massage to HIV/AIDS orphanage in Cambodia, free workshops in the San Francisco Bay urban communities, scholarships to our workshops and retreats to provide accessibility to anyone seeking to enhance their life and realize their potential, regardless of background or status, teaching women, men, at-risk and gang-involved youth tools to be empowered change-makers through the mind-body connection and breaking the perpetuating cycles of violence. We are dedicated to positive transformation in its all its forms, connecting spirit and community.
