I founded Mystic Dirt six years ago. Since then it has changed and evolved. It means different things to different people on different days. And since I'm a Gemini sometimes those different people are all living inside my head. The through line is creating experiences to empower self-care, self-love and self-worth. That could be through a DIY body scrub kit, a self-care ceremony or Intuitive Reiki Coaching. One or all of these may speak to you.

Years ago, in middle school, I studied Russian with a teacher who fed us caviar, played Dr. Zhivago, and told stories of the Moscow Art Theatre. That little 12 year old girl dreamed of Acting in Russia, following the tradition of Chekhov and Stanislavski. Imagine my surprise as a young adult to be granted the opportunity to make that dream a reality, not once but twice. The years after have taken me to New York City and Los Angeles.
I'm on a mission to empower self-care, self-love, and self-worth. A few words to describe what an Intuitive Reiki Coaching session is like: Elevating, Learning, Healing, Energizing.
Before Mystic Dirt was called Mystic Dirt, I would gather with friends and sometimes strangers to make luscious potions for the body and skin. Women would share beauty recipes handed down through generations. They would also share intimately about their challenges to create time and space for self-care. From these sacred circles Mystic Dirt Self-Care Ceremonies were created.
Travel. Nature. Street Art. Stories. These are my muses. Join me on Instagram as I share my quest to find beauty and connection.
