I am so excited to be bringing my dance/book tour to California and the first event will be at UC Irvine on May 25th from 1-3pm!

1-2 pm presentation
2-2:30pm Q+A
2:30-3pm book signing

During this specific presentation/performance, I'll be focusing on mental health - an aspect of well being that is often still given short shrift. And yet it is so vital. I'll be sharing from my professional experience as a physician guiding people in treating mental dis-ease. I'll also be sharing about my past history of severe depression and the successful holistic approach I took for my healing

I am looking forward to creating a safe space and a transformative experience around this topic- it is such an important one. Please join me if you can and feel called to do so. Also, please share about this event with anyone you think could make it and would benefit from this.

blows.

But there is another entrance
and it creates a very different room.

You can enter mouth...
