About Chesaray


Chesaray's search for “What is really Real,” began as early as she can remember. After losing several significant loved ones in her teens, she was driven into a deep contemplation of grief, God, and death. Her university studies in Philosophy of Mind and Buddhism led her to study abroad in India where she set her heart on embodying Freedom. She had a powerful awakening of the Self at 22, and has since wholeheartedly explored the psyche and soma inside and out. Her individual and group meetings marry the psychological and healing arts with abiding spiritual Awakening. Her gift of healing Grace, her devotion to learning from life experience,  and over fifteen years of training and practice in meditation, conscious movement, bodywork, and psycho-therapeutic modalities make her an excellent companion for others in their awakening process.

Chesaray has a profound reverence for and an embodied gnosis of ordinary life. She has held space for herself and others through hellacious trauma and pain and mind blowing spiritual experiences.  She has a clear ability to be with people right where they are,  the wisdom to guide them through the gnarliest of life's struggles, and the heart to share in their joy and growth.  Chesaray rests in Being and Gratitude for the Hand of Jesus, the Love of Amma, the Clarity of Adyashanti, the Nurturing Wisdom of Jeannie Zandi, Simplicity of Jon Bernie, the tireless Support of Anrael, and the Power of Gracelight.

Over the last fifteen years, Chesaray has spent many months meditating on silent retreats or alone in the wilderness. Sometimes, upon feeling called by her inner voice, she would go out into nature without food for a week or more at a time. She has spent countless hours doing dyads: one-on-one meditations in which partners provide each other a space to go deeply into their own experiences.


While it is clear to Chesaray that her healing ability and presence was developed primarily during her radical journey within, she has also developed a vast wealth of knowledge of different healing modalities and schools from which she can call to aid in healing.
