Cyntha lived in Mexico and then Peru, where she actively studied with indigenous healers over a 1-year period and furthered her learning in nature mysticism as well as energy and somatic healing. While in South America, she also spent significant time in Brazil where she was exposed to several healers that broadend her understanding of spiritual and emotional healing.
Cyntha's taught professional development seminars in the psychiatric field as well as self-development weekend workshops- all oriented in bringing greater awareness and healing to the mind/emotional/body/spirit interdependence. During that time, she also immersed herself in the world of healing through the Creative Arts- both in learning and teaching Art Therapy and other expressions including Movement Therapy and Drama Therapy. She spent significant time in Morocco where she began her strong connection with the Arab and Muslim cultures. Cyntha’s personal spiritual practices include meditation, sunrise sea swimming, sun gazing, Kundalini Yoga and following a mainly raw vegan diet – all as means to enhancing her spiritual anatomy and physiology. She travels to India often, continuing her lifelong study of this culture’s rich spiritual traditions.
In Cyntha’s counseling work with individuals and couples, she saw the need also for sexual healing and bringing emotional awareness and spirituality into one’s sexuality. Her clients’ thirst to learn more, led her to developing Sacred Sexuality workshops and monthly Tantra evenings in Dubai and Bahrain over the last 12 years. Thanks to her international and inter-spiritual experience, she brings to this work an appreciation of the cultural and religious sensitivities around physical intimacy as well as an understanding of how to work with one’s subtle energetic physiology and emotional content in the sexual domain. In her workshops, she offers cutting-edge teachings on emotional intelligence and sexuality alongside the wisdom of the Tantra tradition and its celebration of the sacred in the sexual – all within a safe setting of clear boundaries, good fun and warm affection.
