About Lori 

I practice and teach about curiosity and the movement and release of outdated energy and ideas- I use time tested, rooted philosophy, science and practices that allow the mind to quiet and answers to arrive from within. When curiosity is centered, we can align our actions with our values, root into our purpose and live in recognition that all of Earth and her inhabitants are interdependent as a whole. 

I am passionate about reconnecting people to their humanity, the Earth and one another. When we have access to the wholeness of our humanity we have the ability to find rooted agency and resilience within ourselves. This resilience and agency can lead us towards a generative future.

The lineages that lead my practice and teaching come from many teachers; those most influential to my practice and what I share today are rooted in Advaita Vedanta and Tantra as taught from a perspective of matrilineal origin. I couple my understanding of these philosophies with training and personal integration of emergent somatic practices and training in somatic experiencing®.

 

I am here to become a healthy ancestor and remind people they are mammals who are not separate from one another or the Earth. I do not proselytize any particular religion or spiritual lineage. I have degrees from the University of Colorado in education, geography and environmental studies as well as over 2500 hours of training in the eight limbs of Yoga, trauma healing and somatics. I have been practicing and teaching for over 20 years and I continue to be amazed and humbled by what I learn from the guru that is life.

I am a mother, partner, friend, student, astrologer, somatic exploration navigator and soil builder. I am committed to co-creating a world where we remember our interdependence and practice the radical act of connection. I offer a non-hierarchical system of learning, relationship and practice where communities of empowerment are created through the sharing of education and practices that allow people, at all stages of life, to tap into their instinctual, intuitive, restorative nature.
