intuitive healing, meditation coaching, reiki, & cacao ceremonies
Adhara is a bright star in the Northern Hemisphere constellation Canis Major. It is a binary star, shining with some visible light, but it is the brightest source of ultraviolet light when seen from Earth's sky. Symbolically, Adhara is the star which can connect our violet crown chakra to the universe. At the same time, adhara is a Sanskrit word meaning "base" or "foundation," and is a component of word for the root chakra, Muladhara. Adhara is symbolically a connection to both earth and sky, grounding and spirit.

Intuitive healing sessions start with an assessment of your concerns or goals so the healing session can be tailored for your individual needs. Sessions can incorporate shamanic practices, herbal healing, sound healing, stone healing, and reiki.
Heart-centered cacao ceremony for groups of 6 to 25. Experience drinking ceremonial cacao (ethically and organically harvested). Cacao opens our heart chakra allowing us to feel deeper and love more fully. Ceremony includes short mediation, sound and drumming, and deep sharing experiences.
In person or distance reiki available for humans and animals. Reiki can help stress reduction and promotes relaxation and healing. Reiki works holistically; on the whole body, mind and spirit
Sound Healing & Meditation
The introduction of sound to your meditative and healing practice can be profound. Sound frequency can help balance chakra points (energy centers) in the body and spirit. Tones and percussion can be used to facilitate a deeper well-being.
One-on-one mediation guidance to help you practice a range of meditation techniques. This can be a single session or a group of sessions to help you achieve your goals.
