Example Post about meditation I’ve always been a free spirit. Blessed with a loving family and a wild imagination, my childhood was filled with exploration and creativity. My penchant for art filled my early life with creative endeavors like painting, dancing, knitting, sewing, singing, making pottery, playing the cello and trombone, and acting. It was later, while attending the University of Santa Cruz, that I found my desire for connection and education shift towards the natural world itself, the entity I had once painted, sculpted, and honored through music. This discovery catapulted me to live in Germany as an Au Pair, study with a Peruvian Shaman and eventually lead me to realize that I wanted to pursue a path in the alternative healing arts.
