Shining Their Light: Jenn Rivera and Her Path to Kundalini Yoga

Jenn Rivera was a corporate executive with 10 years experience in publication, mainstream advertising and event coordination, when she one day decided to just call it all quits and go on a healing journey that would change her life. 

She described her life as being "consistently busy", but at some point, she says, "the busy-ness and stress [became part of a] standard lifestyle".

Eight years later, I've continued to return to what everyone now calls The Healing House -  a space where many of us have gathered, exchanged stories, and experienced a kind of growth that only a healing house like this could ever truly bring to a community. Curious to learn more about the history of the house and what inspired Tita Tina to create such a meaningful space, I decided to write to her, and let this lightworker tell me more about how it all began.
