“I understood myself only after I destroyed myself. And only in the process of fixing myself, did I know who I really was.” - Sade Andria Zabala

In my 43 years of life, traveling the world and educating myself about different healing modalities, particular cultures, their medicines and practices…I have come to one conclusion, out of everything I do not know, what I do know conclusively…is that there is no magic potion or pill that can heal you.

Healing is an inside job. It can only be facilitated by your willingness to enter your darkness with your eyes wide open exploring your depths and most importantly…surrendering to the process.

Surrender allows you to go from hiding from your darkness, to embracing it, to fully integrating with it. The healing process can be one of the darkest moments of your life, and can also one of the most rewarding. We have been programmed to believe that darkness is bad. That we may never come back if we enter the shadows, that we will lose our self or that the pain may be unbearable.
