Bio

I was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, on the 24th of October, 1979. I have always had an admiration for human beings, an awareness I have had since I was teenager, when I first had contact with Sufism, a tradition I have followed since 1994. I then studied Occupational Therapy in a public university. Thereafter my early career was marked by meeting and taking care for people confronting the issue of death and mortality. I was specifically involved in neurological rehabilitation and thanatology, specializing in Neuroscience and Human Development. Through this I learned a lot about dealing with people; knowing their frailties and their fears, as well as the wonderful human ability to overcome difficulties. I changed this direction in 2010 in midst of my training in Gestalt Therapy, seeking an education in Spontaneous Movement, Family Constellation, Sustainability and Dragon Dreaming. I have now started work researching and developing the human capacity of liberating Collective Wisdom, through greater self-knowledge and work in collaboration with others. This direction to my career came from my own personal experience in seeking to find my own way through my self-knowledge and my own healing. I have many interests. I love to learn, enjoying using my talents and acquiring knowledge in a pleasant way. I like sports and I challenge myself by seeking to be close to nature and find in this way I learn the power of resilience and confidence. Photography is a way to practice my ability to choose, limit, and shape my way of looking at the world. In cooking I can experience my total creative potential, and without fear or error. In sewing I get in touch with the heritage and spirit of my grandmother who has been of great inspiration for me in mastering my power as a woman.
