I grew up a competitive figure skater, went on to teach skating, and still skate often. I was a rower in college which was my peak of super fitness! I used to lift weights and run a lot. I don't run anymore (prefer skating and lap swimming...easier on the knees), but still enjoy some weightlifting and I practice Bikram yoga. I love to hike and need to spend time in quiet nature. I LOVE hotsprings and camping (though I prefer car camping and airbeds these days....over thermarests!!) I'm into cush and comfy sleeping.
I was raised Jewish, tho am more Spiritual than religious. I don't so much care what religion you were raised in so long as you are on the spiritual path. If you are Christian or Catholic and really into it...I am probably not a good match. Spiritual practices like yoga and meditation are important to me.
I'm a practitioner of the Healing Arts...a certified Transformational Breathwork practitioner. I facilitate emotional healing to help people clear old belief patterns and traumas and help them align with their true intentions and goals. I'm also a certified Health and Nutrition Coach. I eat mostly vegetarian (not all) and a lot of raw vegan foods. I'm a certified rawfood chef and educator.
I'm also a musician/singer/songwriter and write inspiring heart songs (guitar) about healing, awakening, spiritual growth, and connection to the Earth. I also perform. I'd love a partner who plays music or at least appreciates and supports mine. Singing together would be wonderful! I like acoustic folk and I love to dance to various types of electronica and world beat. I'm into Ecstatic Dance in the Bay Area and Burningman! I've been three times and plan to keep going....it is magical, awe inspiring, over the top amazing and FUN! I have actually fire danced while ice skating in several Fire On Ice performances. Way Fun!!! (No it wasn't at Burningman, but the portable ice arena is on our minds. Ice skating on the Playa!)
I majored in Environmental Studies and Sociology, was a forest activist for years and spent a lot of time in the Ancient Forests. I love hiking and being in nature and prefer to live where it's quiet with trees, acreage, garden space and spring water, and is still close to a town with an ice arena. One thing that makes me thrive is living on land away from light pollution and seeing the Earth and sillouettes of trees on a full moon night. (Note: currently living in the suburbs of a town with no ice arena! For various reasons it's right for now. But not long term).
I guess I'm a blend of Earth Goddess, Hippie Tree Hugger, Burner, Dolphin, Muse, Healer, Counselor, Venus Love Being.
I'd love a partner who loves to dance and who'd like to take Latin Dance classes....and travel to Argentina and Brazil! I want to travel to Costa Rica to visit farms and communities I know about. I'd like to live in Hawaii a few months a year. I have many friends there. I am willing to relocate for a relationship if the location is right for me.
I'm intelligent, compassionate, kind, sweet, lovable, loving and VERY affectionate. I'm looking for depth of communication and intimacy. I'm interested in a long-term committed relationship with a genuine heart centered, kind, affectionate, spiritual man who is a great communicator and shares his feelings openly and processes his emotions by feeling and breathing thru them, not dumping on others. I practice self-reflection and non-violent communication. It is VERY IMPORTANT to me to have a partner who is on the path of spiritual growth and awakening. One who is capable and willing to self-reflect on his emotions and experiences and also capable of holding a compassionate space for my emotions, feelings, and growth. Together we evolve, deepen, and grow in Love! and support each other in living and fulfilling our life purposes and dreams.
I look forward to laughing, travelling, playing, having new exciting adventures and enjoying life together in a wonderful compatible committed relationship. I'm 46, have no kids, but still think about it.....I am open to a man who already has kids.
I also love cats and dogs and want a partner who loves cats.
If we sound compatible I look forward to connecting!
