I have found myself here because I don't often go to bars, or find myself frequenting the kinds of social events that provide the opportunity to meet new people at the rate of which I would prefer. And since everyone seems to be on their computer/phones/etc. all the time anyways, what better place to make these choices? To stay safely tucked in our homes, behind a keyboard, peering into a screen, carefully selecting, consciously choosing...to say hello.
Here is my best side:
I have a wanderlust aching in these bones. Having grown up in a small farm town in the Midwest, I was more than ready to experience the world; I moved to a larger city in the Midwest to do my undergrad and receive a Bachelor of Arts degree.
Afterwards, a series of life events inspired me to study human touch. For many years now I have explored many modalities of massage therapy. This opened opportunities that have led me to travel the world, and one of my most fantastic adventures was studying with a Taoist Master in Thailand. After returning from Asia I decided I had had enough of the winter wonderland, I moved across the country to California to explore Traditional Chinese Medicine. I have recently just completed 4 years of a grueling Master's Degree. The best part of it--living in San Diego.
I am delighted when I get to teach meditation(s), experience the mountains or the ocean, expressing myself through art: drawing the human form, black and white photography, painting, poetry, music--piano or guitar and whatever other way I am inspired to share myself with the world. I'm looking forward to having time to create again--being in school was heady and intellectual, I'm ready for some raw, pure creative outlets.
As mentioned, I am a bodyworker, I've learned many forms of massage and healing, (Shiatsu, Chi Nei Tsang, Thai Massage, Reiki, Bodymindcentering) and I have the daily opportunity to educate people about their body. I want to continue to learn the many ways to facilitate the healing process.
I'm not interested in your favorite sports team or bar/dance clubs--it's not my scene.
I do enjoy running, my favorite time is early-ish mornings and/or sun sets. I often cave into my laziness at times and appreciate some respectable, poor postured lounging around. That can happen at home, the beach or a park.
I also practice Kundalini Yoga.
Exploring the many ways in which to nourish the body, whether it be through touch, food, herbs, needles, sound, communication, etc.
I am always growing, evolving, educating, learning. Being teacher and student. Lover and listener.

And to repeat: I'm not interested in your favorite sports team or bar/dance clubs--it's not my scene, nor do I care.
Also, I am not interested in couples.
