"You can never enjoy the beauty and majesty of God and of His world, till you, under divine intoxication, learn to sing and dance and weep like a madman"

Hi I'm Roxy, founder of This Holy Human Life. I've had an awareness of something 'greater' from a very young age, thanks to my mums stories of Spirit. But it was landing amidst a life-changing crisis at the peak of my successful dance career, that catapulted me on a rapid journey of healing and transformation as life as I knew it was yanked from beneath my feet.

Walking away from my London life aged 23 to move home, burnt out with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Allergic Contact Dermatitis, IBS and many unexplainable symptoms that appeared overnight, plus the mental and emotional anxiety and depression that came with them. Forced me to start listening and the universe finally had my attention.

After doctors dismissed the potential for cure and could only offer medication to manage my symptoms, I set out on a mission to heal myself. In a moment of desperation I heard an inner voice 'go and see a Shaman'. Sceptical yet willing, I had a profound healing with Jez Hughes which healed some past trauma and I gained the visceral knowing I was more than just my body. This deepened my awareness of how interconnected all the layers of our multifaceted being are and how each impacts our health. In acknowledging all of them, within 2 years I made a full recovery.

During that time I also trained as a Holistic Health Coach and began working with clients, alongside teaching dance again but now as a transformational tool for realising ones infinite potential. But in 2017 I decided to shut down my company Awake Dance, with no plan other than responding to the call of Spirit to deepen my service in the world. I ended up on a flight to India within a month and completed a 200hr YTT. But it was much more than a training and radically changed my life. It was here that I realised my teaching days weren't over, so began sharing and have since completed over a 1000 hours of training in Kriya Yoga, Tantric Kundalini Practises, Partner Work, Breathwork, Hatha/Vinyasa, Mantra, Sacred Rituals and Kirtan, alongside teaching and guiding hundreds of people over the past 5 years.

Shamanism has played a loose, yet magnetic roll in my life ever since my first healing now a decade ago, but unconsciously probably for as long as I can remember. But it wasn't until 2019 that my journey was bought full circle and I began a 2 year Shamanic Practitioner training with Jez Hughes, of Second Sight Healing. It was a powerful experience that assisted in grounding much of what had been realised in the years previously, whilst deepening my connection to Spirit, my Ancestors and the Earth. However, it wasn't until two days after the training finished, when I spontaneously met a stranger in a hardware store, that was in real need of a healing that I finally surrendered to the call from Spirit to do this work. A call which had probably been there from my initial 'Spiritual Emergency'. A true blessing in disguise, that I now see as my 'Shamanic Initiation', so here I am, banging my drum and rattle, when all I ever wanted was to be a dancer!

My passion lies in how the vertical path of Yoga and the horizontal path of Shamanism can offer an integrated and grounded approach to healing and realising ones limitless nature and true Self. I offer 1-1 healings, workshops, ceremonies and courses that fuse Shamanism and Yoga. Forever finding new ways to weave the two oldest spiritual traditions on Earth, in the most relevant way for our modern times. To assist people in discovering their innate healing power and connection to the Holy (sacred) within and without, to provide 'the need of the hour' for each individual to heal and transform anything preventing them from living the miraculous life that is their birthright.

 

Living a life of dharmic service, I embody the notion 'You can only take others, as far as you have been yourself' and continue to live a life in deep devotion and remain an eternal student of Yoga, Shamanism but essentially the great mystery of this life.

I look forward to connecting with you on the path.
