Biography

alchemical healer – explorer of consciousness – acupuncture spirit point guide & mentor – author – artist – gardener – grandmother

I find my ground in my life-long immersion in earth-based spirituality and my commitment to an alchemical revisioning of the Feminine, the yin, the dark, and the embodied soul. Poetic scholar of Chinese medicine, student of alchemy, ransacker of the spoils of depth psychology, and married queer woman, I am indebted to the fugitives, exiles, physicians, poets, and artists of ancient China who have been my spiritual teachers. The current focus of my work is facilitating conversations around issues related to personal and planetary healing.
