"I offer myself as a guide, a mere conduit, on your journey home.. to yourself."
~ Leila Bihkak Gutierrez (aka Jaïa Devi)
I am a cultural and mindfulness advocate, specializing in ancestral healing and earth based spirituality. Born in Colombia and raised in Morocco, I have a particular connection to our traditional ways that I bring forth in my offerings.
A folk herbalist, trauma informed addiction counselor, Reiki master and... (the list goes on) an experienced yoga teacher by trade.
A highly sensitive child grown in resiliency through my mental, emotional, spiritual and physical healing journey. An endless student, teacher at times, artist at heart, healer, guide... a sister of yours.
Overall, I choose to honor the infinite abundance of healing our Earth Mother provides us with. I have a service-centric practice and I am excited to live in a time where modern science constantly reinforces ancient wisdom. (not that it is necessary!)
"My hope is for us all to grow into wholesome and resilient human beings... Deeply rooted in our Earth Mother, harmoniously walking a peaceful talk."
