“Hold the sadness and pain of samsara in your heart and at the same time the power and vision of the Great Eastern Sun. Then the warrior can make a proper cup of team.” -Chogyam Trungpa
A left-handed Sagittarian with a natural disposition for creative flourishings, flowetic motion and visionary musings, I aspire to inspire each and every beings’ divine bliss, so that all may shine in sovereign abundance and reflect our true, infinite nature and radiate verdant harmony upon our beloved planet, Pachamama Earth. I consider myself an omni-directional meta-theorist and “archetypal activator” of ancient-future rememberings, envisioning a more imaginative, sustainable, open source, heart-centered future, as I dedicate myself to an ever-expansive evolution through personal practices and life-lesson reflections. Born with an unquenchable thirst for testing boundaries in pursuit of truths, with a voracious appetite to learn/teach as much as I humanly can, my many passions include transformational alchemy, tandem expressions, new paradigm spirit-sciences, travel and expanding my bio-physical capabilities through movement and ecstatic dance.
My extended education includes a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Colorado, Boulder, with a major in Philosophy and a minor in Religious Studies. I attended Metropolitan State University of Denver for an additional two years to study Biochemistry. I carry a 200-hour certification in Hatha Yoga through the original Boulder Yoga Pod. I am certified in Usui Reiki, levels I and II and Kriya Yoga, level one. I am currently attending the Institute for BioEnergetic Medicine (IBEM) to receive a dual-doctorate in Natural Medicine and Bioenergy Medicine. I am certified through IBEM and the Auricular Certification Institute in Auriculomedicine and am additionally a certified Biofeedback Practitioner. I have read countless books on a multitude of many relatable subjects and in my adult life, have attended numerous additional workshops on breathwork, asana yoga, meditation, dance, acroyoga, aerial dance, pole dance (spotter certified), Muay Thai kickboxing, tai chi, qi gong, and aikido.
In 2005, I picked up fire dancing and a few months later co-created a performance troupe called Kaivalya— A hoop troupe collective that gained international notoriety and spread much hoop dance enthusiasm. As a performer, I began to crave funkier, more expressive and authentic costumry, so I began to create fanciful hats and fascinators and as the demand for my creative expressions grew, I created Astral Mechaniks. My clientele eventually expanded to include all sorts of performance artists, visionary artists, musicians, socialites, humanitarians, glitterati, and costume collectors extraordinaire. I co-own an art and alter installation company called Cicada 7. art with my girlfriend Ysabel Blu, specializing as a vibe technician for indoor and outdoor pop-up events. Additionally, I have just created Your Body Electric, my alternative health and healing company that engenders a full-spectrum of integrative health practices. This company is still nascent, but being of service through healing and education is my higher calling as I settle into the second third of my life here on planet Gaia. I have worked in festival production since 2005, primarily with Sonic Bloom Festival and have been performing with The Clocktower Cabaret as a circus artist and fusion dancer since 2011.
I count myself blessed to be a part of an ever expansive, explosive group of innovative and talented beings. There is so much abundance amongst this communal force created around artistic expression, the emerging sciences and Love. The future is here, re-configuring itself with the wisdom of the past and we are making herstory with the breath from within, the unconditional Love that we give, the foods that we grow, the sounds of our songs, the movements of our dance, and the stitches on our backs. Sustainable change and spiritual growth is upon this planet and I am honored to be an active participant.
“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.” -William Blake
When I was eight, I remember a distinct conversation with my father that I could believe whatever ontological system I wanted, so long as the cause for my beliefs reflected what I truly felt based on my knowledge and experience. It was a beautiful moment and as I began to experience more and more, there was too much connective, collective information to ignore a few certain undeniable truths, so here it is, as I see it:
In a nutshell, these are my truths:
A-Everything is connected and ultimately One.
B-That Oneness is Infinite expansion in breadth as well as depth and exists in everything, everywhere, eternally and always, possessing perfectly quantized fractelizing geometry.
C-This self-aware Oneness is dynamic and alive, eternally expanding in all its infinite patterns and variations.
I.-This Oneness reflects itself in infinite variety is simultaneous with pure Love and Light. Loving itself for the sake of itself and all its ever expanding manifestations. So this Oneness is both conscious, connective, and extends itself into each and every fiber of being, as it is being-ness itself.
II-We always have a choice: As a self-aware human being, we have the consciousness capabilities to align into the awareness of the infinite nature of things, the Source Oneness of which we are, and tune into any aspect of its incredible harmonized reflections and ride the flow: Learning, growing and shedding along the way. We have our choice to align positively with Its nature of the continual unfolding evolution and live to service of our conscious sovereignty and unconditional Love, …OR we can choose not to open our hearts and minds to this possibility and live instead in ignorance and isolation under a false and entropic belief system created by corrupt powers.
D.- The answer to everything is almost always “D- All of the above,” as life is relative to the conscious observer and based upon your subjective perspective, so why not push the limits of our conscious dimensions, as there is always more to learn and unfold. …And the greater the perspective generally entails more understanding, self-awareness, happiness, Love, uncorrupted power, and compassion for all of Life. Tvat Tvam Asi, you are that! As quantum physics has shown us, we are the creators, creating our reality, so let’s live by being a positive example.
It’s all about refining one’s natural disposition, like a polished gem, and for as far as I have traveled, I certainly have my little short-comings and am always learning more about myself and others as we reflect upon each other in this game of life. I am here to assist you in your growth, just as you are here to assist me in mine.
