I’m a Doctor of Chinese Medicine and registered practitioner of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine, having completed a Bachelor of Applied Science (Chinese Medicine) and a Bachelor of Applied Science (Human Biology) at RMIT University in Bundoora as well as my Clinical Internship at Nanjing University of Traditional Medicine in Nanjing, China.
I was pregnant with my second daughter whilst studying my first year at uni, and spent as much time in the midwifery section of the library pouring over books on Western Wise Women traditions as I did learning about Eastern Wisdom. I didn’t realise it at the time, but what I was looking for was something that affirmed the spiritual truth of my reality that was non-existent within my own culture. This spiritual truth is what I’ve come to understand as the feminine aspect of spiritual/sexual-creative energy: WISDOM.
My quest for Wisdom has led me on a 20+ year journey deep into Women’s Mysteries which is ultimately a path of embodiment. I discovered a woman’s body truly is a temple and claiming your body as sacred and learning to be fully present in your body – especially your HEART, WOMB & YONI – is how you step into the fullness of your feminine sexual-spiritual creative energy. I’ve come to see how the Sacred Feminine has been feared, shamed and oppressed for so long it’s effectively disconnected women from the source of their true nourishment, Yin. And it’s this disconnect and blockage that causes pain within a woman’s body. Women have been culturally conditioned to feel ashamed of their body, their blood, their cyclical nature, their sexuality and their wild, instinctual intelligence, and the result is everything from hormonal imbalances to menstrual irregularities, to lumps, cysts and fibroids, to sexual health issues and generally feeling anxious and unworthy. And it’s this disconnect that sees women unnecessarily birthing in fear and pain.
I’ve trained as a Doula, a Birth Educator & Birth Mindset Mentor and an Ecstatic Birth Practitioner and truly love sharing with women and couples how to enjoy childbirth. I’m a Sacred Female Yoga Teacher and an Advocate of the Desilets Method of Jade Egg and teach embodiment practices that reconnect women to their body wisdom and feminine sexual-spiritual creative power.
I’m a passionate advocate and voice for the Sacred Feminine and love, love LOVE sharing Her Wisdom.
