I met my first astrology teacher, Debra Silverman, when I was 22. It was love at first site… and soon she was my mentor.
Despite a ‘normal’ career in Corporate Marketing for Procter & Gamble, the calling to the subtler realms continued. In my mid-30s, thanks to a precipitous Pluto transit, I left consumer culture behind and returned to the practice of astrology in earnest.
Aside from meeting clients by phone and in person in Toronto, I am a certified astrologer for Deb's community and a teacher for her school, Applied Astrology. I am also a trained Coach, and offer a combination of astrological/spiritual/life coaching to clients.
While I am constantly studying this ancient art and science, I remain a devoted student and practitioner of Evolutionary Astrology (in addition to personal study, I have completed Mark Jones's Pluto School Course). I am also drawn to Esoteric studies and have mentored with, and am an ongoing student of, Mr. Alan Oken, who’s language of consciousness makes my soul sing. I am blessed to have him as a teacher in this life.
In my quest to find a language to describe the reality I know, I have studied a range of mystery teachings, including astrology, mythology, elemental shamanism, Qi Gong, Mayan cosmology, philosophy, the Ancient Wisdom Teachings, white magic, meditation, and more. I am currently working toward a certification in Transpersonal Psychotherapy in Toronto, Ontario.
And I no longer pretend to be normal. ;)
I would like to share a personal story that describes my MISSION STATEMENT.
When I was in my early 20s, I had an experience wherein I was 'lifted' out of my body to a point of awareness located in orbit of the earth. Looking down upon our beautiful planet, I was 'shown' that each of us has a radiant core of light energy that runs the vertical length of our spinal column, continuing far above our heads and deep below our feet. This column of light is our unique blueprint, our 'cosmic self', and our connection to consciousness and the Universe/Source Energy. I was 'shown/told' that it is through aligning with this inner core of light that we will help our earth evolve forward into peace, wellness and prosperity. I was also shown that when we are truly connected and in alignment, everything we need comes to us. Easily and effortlessly.
While maddeningly difficult to manifest, the pursuit of integrity as described by this vision remains my life's calling. I find astrology to be a particularly helpful tool in this effort, and my readings carry this intention. To remember and reconnect with the 'divine blueprint' that is our birth right and our truth.
To fall in love with our Self.
To be of service in this regard I count as my greatest accomplishment and honor.
