Meet Andrea

Modern Mystic & Visionary Guide

My life path can be summed up as a walking of a labyrinth toward the Great Mystery of Life, living the timeless question, "Who, what, and why am I?", and seeking high, low, within, and beyond for the ten thousand expressions of the Divine.

There have been many portals to the Divine along the way, and they include: yoga, meditation, plant medicine journeys, mystical poetry, the practices and philosophy of yoga and Eastern wisdom traditions, trainings and 8 years as a Thai Massage Therapist, astrology, ayurveda, herbalism, life coach trainings, treasured books, long walks in the woods, and the work of Clarissa Estes, Joseph Campbell, and Carl Jung, who helped to ground all of these pieces together into a map of human consciousness, archetypes, and the psyche.

I have woven these incredibly rich teachings together into courses, coaching sessions, retreats, yoga classes, and the very fibers of my being in service of YOU and every human who is ready to come into Sacred Union with your Higher Self and become who you incarnated on this planet to BE.  

The time is now.  Take my hand.

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now." ~ William Hutchinson Murray
