My name is Kezia Vida and I believe that healing is a necessary process that stimulates our growth, facilitates transformation, and allows for our soul’s purpose to manifest fully on the earth.
There are many forces at work that keep us from engaging fully with our healing process. These forces can keep us from truly knowing ourselves, and ultimately lead to a life filled with illusion, separation, and suffering. When we avoid or deny our hurts, we allow them to run the show, continuing the cycle of trauma and pain that hurt us in the first place. A short glance at a newspaper’s headlines will demonstrate how devastating it can be for the world when one individual fails to attend to their wounds.
Luckily, healing is not only necessary—it is 100% natural. I believe that each individual is invited by their soul on a distinct and sacred journey of healing and manifestation. When we learn to embody the contours of our heart and gain the courage needed to follow it, miracles can happen.
As a writer, healer, and dreamworker, I seek to support this process within you by walking the path of my own heart with as much integrity and vulnerability as I can muster. Through many years of apprenticeship, classes, and retreats with various spiritual teachers, I’ve honed the skill of using dreams to facilitate my own healing and the healing of others. My dreamwork technique focuses on training the subtle emotional body, increasing our ability to experience, process, and grow from our feelings. I’ve found it to be very useful for any who seek to:
- Determine What Their Core, Fundamental Issues Are And Face Them With Courage
- Facilitate The Healing of Trauma
- Re-Invigorate Faltering Relationships and/or Heal From Damaging Relationships
- Jumpstart The Creative Process and Connect To Your True Self
- Deepen a Sense of Spiritual Connection
If any of these are part of what you’re looking for, check out my offerings here.
Beyond dreamwork, I write daily on my facebook page, and blog posts about the healing process, the growing subculture of ‘spiritual’ people, and my experiences trying to walk my individual path. I periodically offer classes and retreats based on these topics.
For more of the nitty-gritty, I was born and raised in New Orleans, LA, and continue to live there today with my husband Jordan and our dog Yogi. I got a degree in Philosophy from Yale University, and after one year working in psychology labs, decided to go a different route towards self-understanding. Besides my seven years of intensive dream study, I’ve gained my Reiki Master certification and studied under a variety of shamanic practitioners. I also spent time community organizing to various capacities, and still do a Community Radio show twice a month. I’m fascinated by questions of how to design groups that are healing instead of oppressive. My heart is immersed in the whirlwind that is life at the Mississippi River Delta and I’m committed to witnessing this land as it continues this tense period of rapid change.
Community is my lifeblood and I feel eternally blessed for all of the incredible souls I’ve been lucky enough to call friends, brothers, sisters, and fellow walkers on this path of life. Thank you for all of the ways you love.
I also get really excited when I meet new people so please don’t hesitate to get in touch, even if it is just to say hi or you have a question. I would love to say hi back. Hi!! Ok I started it.
