My self-summary
I'm a free spirit who is passionate about social justice issues and somatic therapy.

Looking for someone with an open mind and open heart who is interested in a committed relationship.

My passions include:
meditation and spiritual development / dance, esp. Cuban Salsa / conscious dance / yoga / nature / social justice / health and healing / somatic therapy / energy work / tantric yoga / education / travel / anything involving water / crafts & DIY projects / good hugs
What I’m doing with my life
I study somatic therapy (Hakomi Method) and am always open to new avenues of personal growth and development. Also, nature. I love nature and would love to live in a more peaceful and serene environment.

I was voted Most Prolific Reader in the 4th grade, and it's still one of my favorite activities.

I'm a Cuban Salsa dancer, and really enjoy Afro-Brazilian and other kinds of dance too. A big yes to dance, movement and being in our bodies!

One time I started a cookie business when I lived in Colombia. My friend and I made the PERFECT, taste-tested chocolate chip cookies and sold them in parks where people hung out drinking and smoking weed. We called it Las Munchies (with a Spanish pronunciation), introducing a new word to the Spanglish lexicon.
