THE LIGHT / THE SHADOW
Briana is a guide; to helping you find balance, to figuring why the hell you’re here, to opening your heart, and manifesting your dreams, to getting you out of the ego-narrative, to clearing the blocks and creating space for radical change, to helping connect you to your spirit, and the universal energy that is always present and available to open our lives up to our fullest potential. For our spirit to align and express in our often crazy lives, in this crazy world we must create safe, loving space. This is the work.
I’ve lived many lifetimes already in this one. I’m a Pilates and yoga instructor, and breathwork facilitator. I’ve worked at the U.S. Department of State, and in the wine biz. I’ve hosted a podcast on Heritage Radio Network about food culture and politics around the world. I have my MA degree from the Department of Nutrition and Food Studies at New York University, and was an adjunct professor in that program. I love punk, rocknroll, and all the dancey music. I love tennis and soccer. There was a kitesurfing phase during college, which I’m getting back to. I am not fond of eggplant.
I am deeply indebted to several inspiring beings; David Elliott, Gurujas, Lauren Walker, Anodea Judith, Ali Cramer, Nisargadatta Maharaj, Gail Harris, Francesca Bove, and Yogi Bhajan.
