"One day you will tell your story and

it will be someone else's survival guide."

-Brene Brown



 In 2011, I was diagnosed with severe sudden onset of advanced rheumatoid arthritis, known as RA.  RA is an Autoimmune disorder that is painfull and debilitating.  There is no known cure and most with advanced RA have a dismal prognosis of pain and rapid disability.  The long list of lifelong medications has an equally long list of side effects, including death.

The disease was excruciating on many levels.  My left elbow fused almost immediately after diagnosis, a process that was horrific to experience as I witnessed my own body destroying itself.  Beyond the physical horror, there was a complete loss of identity.   I entered the darkest moments of my life.  As a former professional dancer (graduate of The Juilliard School, former  pro at Joffrey Ballet and more) I entered into a total loss of who I thought I was, but all this became the greatest teacher of my life.

My beautiful son Tomas, was 2. - he saw in me an invincible super hero.  He never saw my illness.  In his innocence and raw authenticity his love for me and mine for him became my single pointed reason.  My why.  I made the decision to seek another way, even though I was told there was no other way by "experts" and highly trained doctors.  Tomas was my reason for showing up as one open to healing, open to miracles - I needed to be the hero my son believed I was. 

I Found that way.

The journey of healing is not for the light hearted.  Once I made the decision to forgo the meds and try healing my body naturally I hit many speed bumps.  Alchemy was not what I had imagined, but it presented itself.  I began to research the deeper meanings, the causes of disease and how I created my own reality.  I studied quantum physics, became so well versed on Law of Attraction and the laws of the universe.  I took 2 steps forward and sometimes 3 back.  I began teaching Zumba, not because I thought I could, but because I still felt that maybe, just maybe, the doctors were right, and I would be at the last moments of being able to dance.

Ultimately, I found my way.  I healed my body, (Declared a Medical Miracle for No Evidence Of Disease in bloodwork) my mind, and my spirit.  The light inside me that is inside all of us ignited to a blaze, my Zumba class began to fill top capacity.  The energy in the room during class, a palpable bliss.   


"I am convinced that sharing our stories serves as a beacon for others seeking to know what is possible.  Ultimately, our story becomes part of the collective path forward and evolution of what can be."- Josette
