Like many of us, Erika’s life contains heartaches, tribulations, trauma and grief. By 22 Erika had lost her brother, grandfather and father and within the next 15 years her grandmother died in her arms and her best friend crossed over while holding Erika’s hand. These experiences, along with motherhood and a demanding career in the Pharmaceutical and Laboratory Diagnostics Industry, have contributed to her present mission.
Erika’s mission is to love with presence and live sovereignly in light of our eternal state. She shares her personal renaissance through writing lyrics, poetry and short stories, and collaborating with others who are building a new, sustainable, authentic and life honoring way of being.
Eventually we die and “go to heaven” or “rest in peace”, but why not practice how this will feel while still in the body? Why wait?
Erika combines analytical approaches
with spiritual and emotional expression
In addition to her training as a death doula, and her personal experience with witnessing the death of loved ones, she draws from her background as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist MT(ASCP) and a Certified Project Manager (PMP) for thought provoking conversations on personal transformation. She references Newton’s Third Law of Motion: that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction and believes that as we give ourselves permission to move in a new direction, in a fluid motion, both towards and away from rigid constructs of opposing meaning, we experience a zero point; a harmony. This place of harmony is a convergence from this OR that thinking to this & that, light & dark, together & separate, masculine & feminine, divine & human…healed ”& healing”. In symbology, this can be explained as an infinity symbol ♾ — a “healing” of duality.
“& Healing” represents the importance of merging polarized views for our healing and awakening.
