This page is a curated collection of practitioner and services I have worked with and I would recommend both in NYC and SF
Dear sister Julia, based in Ojai, is a photography goddess and cacao alchemist. Her work is dreamy, cosmic, heart awakening, and she has a way of so effortlessly capturing the feminine power and goddess embodiment. She took these pictures of me while we were exploring the gardens a few weeks ago and I cannot wait until we shoot again when she returns to the bay. If you are seeking portraits, look no further to her magic.
I never have been a nail girl, ever. I think I got my nails done for prom 10 years ago and once for NYE or my birthday more recently but that is pretty much the extent. Since I work with my hands, and always have, I never thought I could sustain having my nails painted for more than a day, so just gave up on the whole concept, until I met Taylor, Taylor totally transformed the way I think about nails and I'm now nearing addiction to her artistry. Taylor's touch and nail art is healing, she is a joy to be around, and I find so many similarities with her art and mine, how the symbols and colors can have healing properties when intentions are set. And they last for weeks, even when I have a fully booked Soul tattoo schedule which usually wrecks my nails and hands. Highly recommend a visit if you are in the SF area—book ahead because she books up fast.
South African native and dear friend Madineyah and I used to do floral design work together back when that was both our full time jobs and also started a community woman's gathering in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn, where we both used to live. She naturally has this pioneering, magnetically captivating energy where you just want to listen to what ever she says. Friends in the neighborhood used to joke that she was going to become to next Oprah, but she would tell us that no dream is unattainable and you can manifest it. Madineyah is a transformation coach and teacher based in NYC who's work is powerful, just like she is. Book a 1-on-1 Online Life Purpose Discovery Session, and much more, discover why you are here and what makes your soul come alive and how to live a fulfilling life.
To me, community is the most powerful thing in life. I wouldn't be where I am today without the support of my loving NYC community (my true family), especially Xenia, healer, writer, gatherer, and shop owner of Myths of creation. I don't really even remember exactly how we first connected, because it feels like we've known each other forever, but I am just in awe of how Xenia creates such a powerful community in her shop through fashion, expression, healing, workshops, with herself as the glue and facilitator. If you are in Brooklyn, please check out Myth of Creation's beautiful wearables, ritual tools, and community offerings.
I owe so much to this woman, teacher, and lightworker. Aki was the first person who I met when I started doing Soul Tattoos full time who said “I really love what you are doing” with deep sincerity, belief, and interest. She invited me to offer my work in her space, and that’s how Soul Tattoos, and my healing path, expanded. Aki and Minka transformed me and allowed me the space to really flourish in my work. Aki is an incredible practitioner of energy healing and flower medicine, mother, and co owner/creator of like four different businesses (!!) She is an inspiration, badass boss woman, and expander for me. If you are in the NY area, check out Minka Brooklyn for a variety of amazing healing modalities and community offerings as well as Aki’s personal offerings of reiki/energy healing, spiritual coaching, and custom flower essence blends, which are pretty much life changing.
I am so proud of super star, warrior goddess, Wadulisi Woman assistant Brenda for pursuing her deepest passions and launching her Doula business. As of July 2018 Brenda became a birth doula under DONA. Brenda uses her skills of herbs/custom smudges, reiki and birth knowledge to make mama's to be feel the most empowered and beautiful they can feel. Brenda comes from a long line of midwife's, bone setters and witches from Mexico so it is no surprise she is honoring her ancestors with this new path. If you are pregnant or plan to be pregnant I highly recommend reaching out to her for support. You can read about her
Kyle Grow / Contact Therapy
Intuitive Massage / bodywork / teaching. Kyle is basically a genius and so gentle and kind. I was so blocked from receiving when I showed up at Kyle’s space because I hold all my energetic weight from the world in the back of my heart as a sensitive and empath. Kyle helped me to open and reset so that I could receive more love and support. Kyle founder of Contact Therapy is located in Bushwick in his own studio doing a variety of teachings and bodywork.
Julian Grow / Sacred Silence Acupuncture
I received a treatment called the ghost treatment where I had the most deep and profound purge of any other work I have done in years.Julian is a wizard. It was the most physically and emotionally painful treatment I have had in a LONG time, but I felt so trusting and supported by spirit and Julian as I released deep fears and blocks from my heart and body. Julian practices out of his own studio in Bushwick that feels so good and healing the second you walk in. See him for acupuncture, sound healing ceremonies, or any Chinese medicine remedies. I am also a huge fan of his products and use a variety of them daily... my go tos being the spirit water for cleansing my aura, which I have shared on here before, and the sananga. :: Sacred Silence Acupuncture
My go to for massage/Reiki/Bodywork. I have been receiving from Lindai for a couple of years now as we practice out of the same space in Brooklyn, Minka. She is an Earth angel and has saved me many times after spending 8 hours hunched over tattooing, holding space, and doing energy work all day. She would take me from a space of barely being able to stand to feeling so glowy, relaxed and present in my body. Last month we tried something different, and a little deeper, her raindrop technique, which works deeper into the nervous system and spine which is what my body was calling for after being sucked into the heightened vata energy of NYC that was frying my nerves. Highly recommend her for reiki/massage :: BodyWorkNY
Nelly does psychic readings and mediumship sessions and we have been friends and working together since she started at Minka when I was still living in Brooklyn. She is a big expander for me to honor and hone my mediumship abilities, and I was so excited to get another reading with her during my visit. She is really really wonderful, and has this way of delivering even intense, esoteric messages in this gentle and charming way. We did a Soul Path/Mediumship reading that was super expansive (really esoteric yet grounding for my spirit) and gave me the full licensing I was seeking to move forward on my path of service this life in a very liberated way and better understand the way my soul/aura operates. The messages I received from my guides, loved ones, and spirit/higher self were so heart opening. I love connecting to my grandmother through Nelly, so fun and heart bursting! See Nelly if you are wanting to connect to loved ones passed over or simply to connect to your highest self and path possible for you during this life time.
