The black belt I received is a mere symbolic token of the depth I went to.
Through the martial arts, I cultivated confidence, assertiveness and clarity. Maybe neglecting a more feminine side in me.
Hence I sought out the balance in the last 8 years of my life and focused on dance, intimacy and conscious relating practices which offered richness and range in so many ways.
Adding to the already diverse background of practices and interests, it was getting certified as an Embodied Facilitator and Coach in 2017 that tied the pieces together. It gave me a clear language and frame to share my passions with others.
I since successfully coach clients on various topics using an embodied approach and offer numerous workshops around the world, many focusing on relating and conflict transformation. I believe it to be a key to making the world a better place and there is always more to learn for myself too.
All I know is we exist in relationship: the relationship to ourself, to others and the planet.
And we need each other to be our best selves and be reminded of our shared humanity.
