Author, Whole Health Macrobiotic Nutrition Counselor, Bach Flower Registered Practitioner, Certified Therapeutic Massage Therapist for People and Dogs/Cats, Reiki Practitioner, and Certified Yoga Teacher.

I have dedicated my life to healing myself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually since becoming sober in 1985 with the help of Alcoholics Anonymous, beating ovarian cancer in 1993, and surviving a near-fatal car crash in 2001. My husband and I established mugen LLC in 1999 and authored books on healthy eating and living and operated vegan macrobiotic restaurant, Seed Kitchen in Venice, California in 2008~2016. Mugen means infinity in Japanese.

We provide:

  • cooking classes, lectures, and workshops
  • healthy foods and community meet ups at Studio mugen in Santa Monica since 1999 and Seed Kitchen restaurant in Venice, California, since its opening in 2008
  • whole health macrobiotics nutrition counseling for people and dog/cat
  • therapeutic massage, moxa and reiki
  • Bach Flower counseling for mental/emotional challenges for people and dog/cat
  • mindful meditation and yoga practice for balance between body and mind
