Namaste, and welcome,
Asrael has always been interested in holistic and alternative ways of healing. Deeply intuitive she finds that true healing surpasses the boundaries of the physical body and embraces the emotional, energetic and most subtle layers of our being.
Born in Detroit, Michigan, Asrael always felt connected to a deeper sense of life. There was the innate knowledge that her path would lead her into the world of transformation and conciousness. As a child and teen Asrael grew into her intuition and started her journey into tarot, yoga, and past life work. She also embraced travelling and adventure. After a few years of university, majoring in theatre, the natural world called and she spent time travelling the west coast of the United States, learning about and wildcrafting wild herbs. Her path eventually brought her into British Columbia, Canada where she spent her twenties working in a mix of different fields; a mountain shepherd, tarot card reader, and a herbal soap/bodycare business owner. She always practiced yoga, and worked intuitively through this time.
