Sexuality was once a source of deep shame and pain for me.
The sexual harassment and emotional pain I experienced as a child led me to find solace in meditation at the age of 11. I taught myself how to connect with my inner world, which is what started me on my spiritual path. The world around me didn’t support who I was and so I learned to shut it out and tune in to my heart. At the age of 16, I began practicing yoga and felt confidence and grace in my body at a time when I needed it the most. I became a certified yoga instructor at the age of 18 and continued my practice as I went to college for psychology, hoping to help other people. Psychology gave me a great foundation but it felt very disconnected from the body and so I sought out a system of healing that integrated mind-body-spirit, which is how I found acupuncture.
