About Me


I'm a budding yogini, tarot reader, plant lover, avid crafter and re-crafter, amateur seamstress, spiritually cultivating, slow but steady runner, can't stay focused on one thing for long, gardener, binge reader of both the profound and the YA post-apocalypic, cook, language hound, occasionally an activist, pet lover, cult movie & documentary watcher, creature with a wanderlust, procrastinator, constantly evolving, open, curious, friendly, quietly outspoken, peaceful and up for just about anything with proper motivation.

I'm about to start working towards my PhD in Philosophy and Religion focused in Women's Spirituality through the lens of Feminist and Ecofeminist Philosophy and Activism; Women's Mysteries, Sacred Arts, and Healing. So exciting! My husband (Pablo Chiw Diaz -Met via CS. Imagine that!) and I are on a path to create a transpersonal healing and conscious community space in our new home of La Paz. We're developing a plot of rustic land for sustainable living to share and learn from, which will eventually provide a nice ritual and creative space! We welcome anyone who feels compelled to share, learn, or partake of our project.
