Growing up I would travel along long winding roads to my friends farm for the best times in nature I can remember. They looked like ribbons draped across the landscape. These ribbon roads were my journey to a place of relaxation, community & love.
My hope is to help you navigate the journey along your inner ribbon roads to find your unique balance with nature.
How do we begin?
We have everything we need at our fingertips. Our bodies, foods, breath and senses are our ways in and out of balance. It is simply knowing what to use when!
The roadmap to balance is in nature. When we can see how the 5 elements are at play in our world, we can also recognize how they are at play in our bodies. This is the bigger picture that our healthcare system forgets - we are empowered when we are able to see the whole picture and then decide what aspects of western medicine we want to engage with.
A practice that teaches us how to see this dynamic is Ayurveda - The oldest medical system from India that gave our world the roadmap to all of our health practices today.

My mission is to provide accessible tools and education so that you can be an active agent in your healthcare. I empower folks to live a long, vibrant life with tools that come from their body & their kitchen. I draw from knowledge afforded to me from my class privilege and that comes to me from lineages that are not my own. I am committed to giving back to support Dalit Liberation and Black & Brown Farmers on the Lenni Lenape land I occupy.
My vision is a world that integrates holistic modalities in the main stream healthcare system (*gasp* for FREE) AND uplifts the cultures that have been impacted from the commodification of their practices. I am dreaming of a world that exists outside of capitalistic greed and is centered on people and their needs, wants and desires.
*This is the vision and I am discovering the ways it can become a reality, while navigating the world we currently live in.
