Mena had a mid-life crisis at the age of 33 when she was feeling numb and uninspired. Married, mom of two toddlers, the family moved into a beautiful house where they would live until the kids went off to college. She choked realizing she had everything on the ‘check list’ this society promotes and she felt miserable! At that point, she experienced a raging divorce, clawing for her sense of self-worth, independence and an opportunity to live a life that inspired her.
Four years out of the job market to raise her boys and with a background in a troubled industry, she wondered how was she going to leverage her BA in Economics and an MBA from Booth Chicago while still being a present mom? Did she have a strategy? No. Any medium term career goals? Not yet. She simply listened to her Heart.
She embarked on a deep process of self-discovery journalling daily through the divorce, going on multiple retreats, studying from diverse teachers, traveling to mystical destinations, reading vast amounts of books, and experienced a multitude of different practices. Mena was searching for the Light. The deeper she went into this exploration, she realized it was always within her; she simply needed to let go of her life long conditioning to see it! To BE it.
Now she brings together her analytical mind and her deeply engrained awareness of mind, body and spirit. Through her own experiences, studies and vulnerability, she is more and more aware of the intricacies of being light in human form. She knows that we all have unique gifts and she’s inspired to provide spaces to enable people to discover the treasure they are for this World. She is passionate about empowering individuals to Awaken Flow™ to what is already available and overflow with joy and abundance. Thus, bringing light and healing to our planet which really needs it now.
