Since I can remember, I was always in a state of deep suffering and longing. Deeply in touch with myself and yet, at the very same time, innocently doubting of my own inherent Worth.

For a long time, I was an actress. My acting times were a pure reflection and my first attempt to fulfil that search, but especially that longing. Quickly, I began to realize that although a big passion and a profound way of voicing my deepest wounds, the fulfilment and rest achieved through it were still momentary and not deeply satiating. At that moment, the interest started fading away and my attention gradually shifted towards self-inquiry and inner-discovery.

I tried everything: yoga, meditation, spirituality, ashram life, awakening, gurus, many different teachers and although a lot of discoveries and several inner shifts took place, truth is, that the constant seeking and hunger were still very much present. My path really has been one of absolute surrender.  A path of being forced into a constant discovery and honesty. A path where life took away all my answers (spiritual and humane) and forced me to forget how to live this life, totally.

I was brought to my knees several times, and each time I was given the opportunity of discovering a wider ground, a safer and kinder place inside. In the midst of all I thought I was guilty of, all I was ashamed of, all the places I thought weren’t yet perfect enough, awake enough, all sensations I was incessantly trying to banish inside myself, something just surrendered itself…. and more and more this vast space of Innocence, joy and peace started being seen as who I really am.

I was and still am in this humbling and loving path of absolute surrender of that which is not aligned with my deepest Nature and the wisdom of it imprinted in my beautiful body. I was close to physical death several times and in an immense suffering my whole life and maybe that is one of the main reasons I feel now called to share my experience with others and perhaps help someone that is going through the same and wants to discover a loving freedom and kindness at the Heart of it all.

I am not a psychotherapist either a trained professional, I am a girl, a friend, a passing ‘messenger’, that has gone through the depths of this human experience and that for some reason was lead to choose a non-conventional approach to her deepest struggles and issues. Someone that was forced to rely more on her own breath than any other technique or method and that loves to welcome all safely and kindly, Here.

Much love,
