  • Profile description
  • I'm a follower of the Buddha Dharma on the path of prajnaparamita [transcendent wisdom], a prolific dreamer [lucid dreaming is like breathing for me], a writer, sacred dancer, and a recently published author. The dreams I have had and documented over the past 16 years have guided me across several countries of Europe, into Turkey, Nepal, and Egypt. Across these countries, I have volunteered as part of my daana practice [similar to karma yoga]. Volunteering in these helped me to see and experience some of the ins and outs of running an establishment, and as a means to cover room and board. I left the US 2.5 years ago and have been traveling since. 

    The book I've recently published is about some of the dreams I've had and their ability to provide guidance, aid in the research inquiry, and shed insight on a woman's visionary tradition from antiquity.
