Gay has been a teacher throughout her adult life. Gay's day job much of her adult life has been teaching college English and Mythology classes. On the flip side, she has also been a life-long student of mind, body, and soul--seeking both deeper and broader wisdom through reading, workshops, academia, and experiential mentoring. Consequently, she has accrued an eclectic collection of certifications and experiences along the way.

However meandering her path may appear, it was always driven by a focused desire to gain and share wisdom, healing, and a stronger connection with the Sacred and its mysteries. She has always believed we could have a direct mystical relationship that goes beyond the limitations typical of our rationalistic Western culture. Through Peruvian Shamanism, a blend of other modalities, and her personal practice, she has gained insights and developed techniques to help others on a similar journey. Embedded in all of her work is her focal passion for assisted experiential learning, particularly through intuitive mythic processes, especially Healing Ritual.
