Through movement, stillness, creativity and touch - through spirit and soma - we co-create healing for ourselves and for the earth.

Working with many sacred traditions, Wilhemeena has developed a kite (basket) of knowledge that stems from Taoist, Ayurvedic, Yogic, Mayan, Aztec, Andean and Pacific and multi-nesian lineages - helping people heal and inspiring them to live their best lives - returning us back to the sacred parts of ourselves. She facilitates personal ceremony + healing, working one-on-one with individuals as well as group facilitation, trainings, retreats and online programs.
