This month we celebrate PRIYA LAKHI!  We are thrilled that Priya  recently “discovered” the Sacred Dance Guild and attended the “Virtually There” festival.   Priya is Certified Master Results Coach, a Board Designated Institute, Trainer, and Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) [ABNLP], a Board Designated Master Practitioner of Timeline Therapy® (TLT) [TLTA], and a Board Designated Instructor of Hypnotherapy [ABH].   Priya is also a Magnified Healing Master teacher, Yoga teacher, certified Energy Healer and Spiritual Seeker and Teacher. Her formative years at university sparked an interest in the human conditioning. She was obsessively curious about “why are we here; what does it mean; who am I?”  While studying psychology, she gravitated towards the legal profession and became a lawyer defending those who society had never given a fair chance to.  Becoming a death row defense attorney allowed her to see pain and suffering, but also hope and redemption.  After a number of years, Priya wondered at a sense of “emptiness” that she was feeling so putting her legal career “on hold” she travelled to her motherland “India” and there went on a journey of discovery that she says “brought her to her knees” that awakened her own “ananda” her “blissful state of being”.  From there she studied and worked to refine her purpose as a bridge to connect the practical and spiritual, right and left brain, the masculine and feminine energies. Priya offers opportunities to awaken your true self!  DO check her website HERE.  DO stay tuned for details as Priya will be leading our SACRED SUNDAY on October 25th (watch the EVENT Calendar and the Facebook page)!
