The Journey from Consultant to Mystic Begins
Misa began her professional career as a special-ed teacher before pivoting to being a successful consultant offering communications and organizational development services to professional practices, non-profits and Fortune 500 companies. In parallel, she co-developed a successful women’s corrections program for reducing recidivism that became a national model.
A talented vocalist and actor, she also spent many years in musical theater productions—often in the lead role. Misa's aptitudes in communication and presentation would later prove to be useful in the very different context of the work that she ultimately came here to do.
Her life took a dramatic turn when her mother left her death bed after Misa spontaneously sang a healing song. Determined to embrace this ability, Misa honed her sound healing skills with both American and Japanese sound masters. She went on to use her gifts to heal her own physical challenges including MS and cancer, as well as aiding clients—one of whom grew a new heart valve at age 70 to mitigate an inoperable condition.

Honoring a profound inner calling, Misa left her successful career and set out on what ultimately became a 10-year walkabout. During that time, Misa communed deeply with Spirit, meditating as many as eight hours a day for months. She apprenticed physically with Cherokee medicine elders, as well as etherically with various Eastern masters, and was given the sacred names of Morning Star (Venus) and Amma (Mother). Dedicated to the openings that come with direct experience, she undertook numerous initiations including firewalks, vision quests, and even a live burial.
In Egypt, Misa was graced with a spontaneous experience where she spent 24 hours as the complete presence of yin, darkness and stillness—the Sacred Feminine—holding unconditional love for all life. Sometime later, she experienced complete immersion in yang energy—the Sacred Masculine—as blissful, ecstatic pulsating white light for approximately an hour.

The first time Jesus appeared to Misa, he came in the dark womb of Feminine Energy and filled her being with absolute love. Being completely loved in the embrace of the Sacred Feminine has become a foundation of her work. She dispels the myth that darkness is evil and reminds us that this yin energy is actually the essence of space itself—the womb and vessel of pure potential.
Guardian of an Ancient Feminine Practice
Over the years, spiritual masters from many traditions have blessed Misa with support and inspiration, both in physical reality and the dreamtime. This included being entrusted by Native American Grandmothers on the other side of veil with the Guardianship of a 1000+ year-old ancient Path of the Sacred Feminine.
Core to these teachings and ceremonies is the ancient Holding meditation, bringing all emotions into the Feminine Consciousness of all-accepting love. Until recently, this transformative practice had been lost for centuries. After Misa rediscovered it and was given its modern-day stewardship, it is now empowering thousands of women and men around the world and has seen many miraculous results.

Called to Serve Global Healing and Awakening
Misa’s mission today embodies the culmination of decades rich with deep spiritual experiences, wisdom and compassion—and a life of truly embracing and living one’s callings and purpose.
Compassion—the healing balm for internal and external oppression—is at the heart of Misa’s service. Her SHE Academy empowers participants in discovering the depths of their own compassion as they awaken the sacred balance of their Feminine and Masculine energies—furthering their leadership in humanity’s conscious evolution.
She is also committed to facilitating that energetic balance at the highest levels by bringing Feminine Consciousness perspectives into dialog with and between both secular leaders and spiritual leaders of different faiths.
