Hello, I'm Roxana,

I offer wisdom teachings and practices to deepen into heart, mind, sexuality & soul

" To be human is to have one foot in the finite

and the other in the infinite

and a navigation system seemingly built

from our conscious choices and desires. 

Yet our lives are powerfully shaped by unconscious and semi-conscious impulses. 

Making these impulses visible and transforming those that no longer serve us

 allows us to access and follow our hearts true desires. 

We desire happiness

through being more fully ourselves,

through experiencing love and deep connection

we long to be able to give and receive more freely

and our human heart has yearnings that relate

to the existential mysteries of Life."

 

 

By listening to our hearts we hear a call to

explore the depths of our humanity and our relationship with life

I am dedicated to this as my own ongoing life mission and

this is what lies at the core of the work I offer.

This exploration is the Great Intimacy

 
I'd always felt like 'the odd one' wondering why on earth people are they way they are, what motivates them to do the things they do and to see the world in so many completely different ways.
 
Life's path initially directed me to the London School of Economics, my studies there provided some insight. However, the questions I was asking took me on an altogether unexpected path. I wanted an education on what it means to be human, on how to live from the heart, this brought me to the arena of healing arts and to immerse myself in a variety of 'spiritual' teachings over the following decades. 

One direction I took was to train as a teacher in the Rudolf Steiner School system. I then worked for a decade at St. Paul's Steiner School in London. This soul enriching time offered the practical challenge of living and working from the spiritual wisdom of Rudolf  Steiner's philosophy, anthroposophy.  Teachers in this system have a complex task, taking on a large portion of the administrative management of the school alongside all classroom duties. Often it felt like navigating a structurally impaired ship (on which lived an entire community, including parents, grandparents and extended family members) through a continual series of storms whilst delivering an education imbued with heart, soul and relationship. No small feat! This education system originates from a perspective that all education should be healing, both in the sense of rectifying limitations or injuries to our being and to leading people towards wholeness, supporting children or adults to realise their full potential.

Living through this healing perspective inspired me to enquire further into what it means to heal and I was drawn to study at the  Brennan Healing School of Healing in the USA. Dr. Barbara Brennan's first career was a NASA research scientist and then she ran her international healing school for over thirty years where she combined scientific research methods with intuition to create a remarkable body of work on the human aura and chakras. I studied this work from 1999-2003.

 

Healing also sat in the foreground of a period of seven years where I was immersed in practicing tantra and was lovingly invited to teach alongside my soul friend and teacher Mahasatvaa Sarita Ananda. 

Since that time I have taught tantra workshops and retreats worldwide. My speciality is couples retreats and women only retreats which unite transformational personal growth work with practices to expand sexuality and relating, a potent and life-enhancing combination. 

 

Just when I thought I was filled to the brim with education on healing an invitation came my way to attend a workshop with Jason Shulman. I knew of his work as a modern kabbalist and zen lineage teacher. Within an hour of meeting him my heart was ignited with the imperative to study with him. My small personal ego had quite other ideas but thankfully was not in the decision making chair at this point and so I began studying Nondual Kabbalistic Healing (NKH).

Today, twelve years later,  I am honoured to be on the faculty of his school, A Society of Souls as a teacher of this profoundly nourishing body of work at the heart of which lies kindness and a deep commitment to awareness. I also offer sessions for individuals in this modality in my private healing practice and additionally work with couples.  In my couples work,  I combine the wisdom from the NKH path with other trainings I have, one of which is sexological bodywork, this is a wonderfully radical integration of sexology, mindfulness and maverick paths of pleasure to expand sexual life and relating. 

This spectrum of relating from deeply personal to spiritual-universal is what I call,  'The Great Intimacy'.

 

This is how I frame my ongoing path of learning and sharing.

 

Come explore with me the unique and highly personal ways in which you create relationship and hence your life. Discover how to alter what limits or hinders you.  By relationship, I mean relationship on all levels, this includes how we relate to our body, how we relate to life themes such as risk, or uncertainty or love, how we meet new tasks or opportunities, how we relate to desires and disappointments, or with the obstacles and suffering we have experienced. The dimension of relating is vast, filled with nuance. Of course this realm continues to the relationships we have with other people, with family members, with romantic-sexual partners, with work colleagues all the way to society at large, our entire lives are a tapestry of relating. Through my work I offer opportunities to explore self, love and life through this lens of relating.

 

The work I do engages with themes classically described as the 'spiritual' path ~ however, having travelled this road for some time, I'd describe it as a way to have more openness in our hearts, to give and receive love more freely, to relate more fully to Life in all it's colours and to explore the mystery of our human place in the nature of existence.

 

Yes, it's a vast and intimate curriculum with love seated at its core,

but doesn't that reflect our true nature? 

Join me.
