A happy core: My life story is delicious. I was born in a Philippines village with no electricity or running water. Poor, often hungry, I slept on the floor in a small house with 12 sublimely unhappy people. This foundation was my classroom, and I have deep gratitude for every moment. From these roots I learned profound happiness!
What makes me special is not my story...it's my energy, my light. And my willingness to push deep.
Practicing on myself, becoming aware of how my mind works, I have found a way to communicate with my most internal space; this space has no story, and it's the wellspring of my energy.
The heart is where I find deepest truth and healing. It is my core, and why I love to serve and guide others. It drives me to help others find their physical, mental and energetic balance.
