I am a writer, Reiki Master Teacher, Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer, ReikiSound and ReikiVoice practitioner, Transformational Reiki practitioner, and JourneyDance facilitator. During a session I may integrate crystals, drums, rattles, singing bowls, and the language of light, as intuitively called. As a wounded healer and shamanic practitioner, I draw upon many traditions to serve the unique needs of my clients. I enjoy helping others navigate rocky times using elements of my own story coupled with a treasure trove of healing modalities I have amassed during this earth walk, and I look forward to serving you.

Feeding the Roots of

Self-Expression and Freedom

For this book, Jimmy Santiago Baca, one of the foremost poets in America today, collaborates with two National Writing Project Fellows and literacy professionals, Kym Sheehan and Denise VanBriggle. Together they present a teaching tool that uses poems from Baca’s incarceration as a young man, along with curricular activities and probing questions crafted to help students heal through writing. Each exercise reinforces the theme that a strong grasp of self-esteem borne from unique expression lends itself to the student enjoying day-to-day life at the highest creative and fulfilling level.

THE AUTHORS are available to visit your school or university. Keynote by Jimmy Santiago Baca and teacher trainings by myself and/or Kym Sheehan.
