She is a Reiki Master/Teacher, Certified Yoga Nidra Facilitator, Writer, Professional Dancer, Dream Weaver, Akashic Channel, NVC Practitioner, Crystal Steward, and Coach. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology & Dance at Northeastern Illinois University in addition to studying various meditations and relaxation techniques.

Living for the past 5 years in Mount Shasta, Deysi has dived deep into her visions of creating sacred space for community, healing and freedom of expression, including G-Fest. It is here that she works as a grounded channel to use her well-developed modalities to create and hold alchemical space; a space that acts as a mirror and opens opportunities for individuals to dive deep into the reflection of their own energies and recognize the potential for personal transformation.
