Your Practitioners

We’re an integration of Medicine Women, Creatives, and Coaches and we‘ve built a heart-bridge from our ancestors to you!

our roots

The roots of our practice come from long-term practice and study and are a bridge between traditional wisdom traditions, modern science, research, and contemporary experience.

This includes our training in Western Science, Yogic Sciences, Traditional Medicine, and Earth-based wisdom traditions that more and more people all over the world, have been re-connecting with in recent years. Individuals, organizations, and the business sector, have and still are experiencing the undeniable positively transformative impacts of these bridges on their physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Many of these frameworks are time tested (thousands of years) and are still here for a reason. They hold within them the power to heal, transform, connect/re-connect, and shake up our capacity for real progress far beyond what we thought possible.

At times, we've both seriously considered living full-time in a Buddhist monastery or in Yogic Ashram, BUT, we each felt the deep call to continue our spiritual journeying in this form, and to serve and support others.

We also know there is a great need to pass down internal process and the practice of healing to younger and future generations. We are motivated by our collective need for community wellness, authentic unity, human evolution, and helping to support cultivating less suffering in our world.

Over two decades, we have supported hundreds of people

through our careers and practices as wellness practitioners, educators, community workers, artists, designers, musicians, researchers, volunteers, and facilitators. We have done the hard hard grind for many years, and feel deeply honored to have had the opportunity to transform our practices into the form of Integrative Wellness to serve and support more people over these past 3 years!
