I have a borderline obsessive fascination with water. You could say I'm an aquaholic. I teach workshops, write articles, post videos, guestspot podcasts, facilitate ceremonies and host retreats about water.

Usually, when I mention this passion, people look at me like I just admitted to a fetish for dust. "Um... water?" they ask. "What do you mean?" As though it's the simplest and most boring thing on the planet.

But here's the secret I'm shouting from the rooftops:

WATER is the most complex and mysterious substance in the Universe!


Over the years I've become a public speaker, certified nutritionist, Mystic dance and Integral yoga teacher and Reiki master with a passion for understanding the power of earth-based living and 5 element integration. I've also trained extensively in aromatherapy and herbalism. With 10 years of experience in the field of health, my wellness philosophy centers around the idea that the closer we come to nature, the healthier and more human we become. Contrastly, when we stray from these foundational laws of life, we become ill and feel disconnected from our Source. I'm a consummate nerd, always reading and researching, and I'm passionate about bringing modern scientific understanding together with ancient ancestral wisdom in a way that grounds primal living strategies into our 21st century lifestyles.


I've taught about Water throughout the US, Canada, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Bali and Thailand.

Feel free to reach out if you would like to collaborate on a project or book me to speak at your next event.

Word on the Street

When I was in Thailand, I had a chance to attend a Water workshop led by Isabel. She has been studying water for at least 10 years, and her workshop was the most informational presentation I have ever been gifted with. She is very knowledgeable and presents deep information ranging from the creation story, through concepts like transference and quantum coherence to water activism, and ways of protecting water. Thank you Isabel for your amazing workshop. I hope you present everywhere because this is definitely wisdom everyone needs to be exposed to. 🙏🏼
