Work History

June 2018Present


Translation of the book Intimacy: Relationships and Sexuality in the light of Ayurveda to Spanish for the author Komala Lyra.

met  Komala Lyra, ayurvedic doctor, ayurveda, yoga and tantra teacher, when she hired me to cook ayurvedic food in one of her trainings. Since then I have followed her teachings. I appreciate the intuitive and practical way in which she teaches these disciplines. The study and translation of her book is becoming a great learning process about incorporating a sadhana (spiritual practice) into life with love and trust.

I have worked in a community, Amoonguna, as a youth worker, running a youth program with my teammates.

Part of my job was also to facilitate cultural programs and organize and direct bush trips and cultural trips. One of the projects I organized was two paintings (2.5x 1.4m.) in which the youth worked together with local artists from Amoonguna and Santa Teresa (Kathleen Kemarre Wallace, Roseanne Dixon, Patricia Ellis).

I also worked on several programs during school holidays in the following communities: Tjitjikala, Hermannsburg, Areyonga, Santa Teresa. My job in these communities was similar, with a focus on developing specific cultural projects, such as: facilitating and supporting artists and elders to work together with children and youth. I also helped create a new magazine for aboriginal youth to talk about sexuality and safety, as part of a project called "The Right Track" comprising music, performance and video .
