Antara: Sanskrit for “Within”, “Heart”, and “Intimate Relationship”.
Antara is a unique approach to mind-body medicine based on the understanding that every part of your body has its own consciousness. Through a combination of meditation techniques, you will be guided to go deep within to develop a heartfelt relationship with your physical body. As you do this, it will begin to trust you and cooperate with you on a new level. This advanced self-healing method draws in Source energy and activates the pineal gland, creating a new environment for enhanced communication between the mind and body. A process of talking to and listening to the body is followed in order to elicit beneficial changes within the tissues and systems.
I hold a Master of Science Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Bastyr University, and am currently studying under shamanic practitioners Meaghan O’Leary and Char Sundust. I am a member of the International Meditation Teacher’s Association and a registered hypnotherapist in the state of Washington. My combined experience with Chinese medicine, shamanic studies, and kundalini meditation are integrated within my approach to mind-body-spirit medicine.
Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos – the trees, the clouds, everything. -Thich Nhat Hanh

It is honored as one of the four Royal stars of Persia, which are also known as the Watchers of the Four Directions. Antares, Watcher of the West, is associated with healing, and the stimulation of raw creative forces.
