As a child, I loved swimming. I played in the ocean and wouldn’t miss the opportunity to play in the pool, splash around, swim to the deep end and lay out all day in the sun. Then, I had an incident, in childhood, in which I slipped and hurt myself in the pool, panicked and nearly drowned…

Earlier this year, in partnership with a dear friend and spiritual sister of mine who shares the same love for sacred travel, exploration, healing, nature, sisterhood and holistic teachings, I launched Holistic Goddess Retreats.
