With Shaman in India 1978

soul masala : The Alkemie of Life, Love, and Parfum

Finalist Award Winner, Non-Fiction - 2018 San Francisco Writers Conference

I've sat with shamans in India and an Indian healer in Italy. I've shared beauty secrets and tea with the Troglodyte women of the Saharas and honored the moon with women in the forests of Northwestern America. Shared prayer pipe ceremony at Native American Sundance and shared healing medicine in a Medicine Tipi at International Sundance... Sat in circles of prayer with peoples from Japan, New Zealand, Australia, South America, Central America, India, Europe and North America. I was humbled in a private audience with the Dalai Lama and I curtsied when meeting Princess Diana and Prince Charles. I've walked the runways in Paris for a haute couture fashion designer and walked the red carpet in Hollywood at the "Oscars" with a famous actor. I've been devastated by disastrous lovers, experienced losing  my house to bankruptcy, and reinvented myself so often that I've lost count. My journey is like most peoples across the globe, seeking two things: Healing and Love. This book is a narrative memoir, as I travel through the senses to awaken healing, find Great Love, and open to the light of my soul... A life where dreams blossom into reality. Publish date: TBA
