Bio / Self introduction
After a life-changing spiritual experience in her early twenties, Barbra has dedicated her life to service.
Having healed from childhood violence, Barbra has a deep, compassionate understanding of people’s suffering and how to use suffering to empower purpose and be a love warrior.
Through 20+ years of service and more than 40,000 hours of facilitation, Barbra has maintained a strong conviction of Love in her work.
She has written four books on self acceptance, is a bestselling Amazon author, created a training program called the Self Acceptance Process™ to support traditional therapists in incorporating compassion and transpersonal elements in their work, and continues to humbly allow God, Love, and Earth energies to perform healing through her.
Barbra is a social and environmental activist and has created a Community Healing space for low-income communities. Barbra has volunteered for years at local animal sanctuaries and vegetarian festivals.
In 2019, Barbra created Mother Bear Sanctuary, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, to bring nature experiences to inner-city children. The affiliated Mother Bear Retreat Center, a for-profit arm of the organization, facilitates life-changing experiences, retreats, and trainings, fees for which help to support the Sanctuary.
She is committed to continuing to grow her consciousness and skills, holds the dignity of each person she serves with high regard, and maintains radical personal integrity within the context of her relationships.
