How Yoni Steaming Healed Me from Sexual Assault and Propelled Me Onto a Path of Healing Others
Embarking on a journey with sacred medicines is a profound exploration of the mind, spirit, and consciousness. Throughout the many times I’ve been able to sit with different sacred plants, I’ve had wonderful, deep, challenging, horrible, ecstatic and blissful experiences. One of the best lessons I’ve had the joy of receiving is to listen to the plants and commune with them vs just thinking that I am “taking them”. This approach has taught me to be with the plant as if they are their own entity. I’ve grown to see each plant as sentient beings with personalities and identities.
Even though the use of sacred plants for personal transformative purposes has been used for thousands of years in some cultures, it has gained increasing attention in recent years in western civilization. As individuals embark on these profound journeys within their consciousness, the importance of a healthy integration after the journey is crucial. Integration is the process of assimilating insights, emotions, and experiences from a Sacred plant journey into one’s daily life.
Have you ever watched or heard of the movie Aladdin? In the movie, the character Aladdin came across a magic lamp which could summon a Genie and could grant him 3 wishes as long as it did not involve death or make people fall in love. This concept fascinated me for many months afterwards! What would I ask for, if I came across a magic lamp? Little did I know at the time that I would eventually open a wellness center in Coral Gables, Miami that could grant your desire, just like a magic lamp and the best part you could have more than 3 desires.

Carving out a space to find moments of inner calm and mental clarity is essential but can sometimes feel like a far-away dream.
