About The Event

Kanuga’s summer conference welcomes spiritual seekers of all backgrounds to deepen and expand your current concept of who you are in relation to the Divine. With love as our foundation, we will support participants in deconstructing harmful beliefs, adopting supportive spiritual practices, and engaging in guided writing exercises.

She is a writer, speaker, entrepreneur, coach, consultant, practitioner of community development, and former church planter who walks in the two worlds of spirituality and religion. She is passionate about the rising of the Spirit and the Divine Feminine.
