Your soul knows the geography of your destiny.
Your soul alone has the map of your future,
therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself.
If you do, it will take you where you need to go,
but more important it will teach you
a kindness of rhythm in your journey.
-John O’Donohue

Anya Lei Sidorchuk is a heart centered healer who’s purpose in serving humanity lies in helping others heal themselves, thus guiding them on their ultimate soul path to nirvana. She is a Transformational Coach, Tarot Alchemystic, Women’s Empowerment facilitator, Reiki practitioner, and Clinical Hypnotherapist, offering the information and healing that the soul and human experience needs in order to unlock one’s greatest potential. Anya’s extensive 9 year experience of channeling tarot readings and studying with spiritual masters in the United States, Ukraine and India, have inspired her to create a transformational healing blueprint called "Tarot Alchemy", which is the foundation to her work. She has a Bachelor's in psychology from UC Santa Cruz and is currently in the process of obtaining her Master's in Clinical Counseling with a concentration in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. Her psychological background rooted in archetypal wisdom allows her to bridge the world of spirit and psyche in an integrative manner, helping her clients understand themselves better and grow in exponential rates. 

Anya brings a great focus on inner child healing, ancestral healing and divine masculine/feminine balancing, as she believes these to be the building blocks to unlocking the psyche of one's true essence. Her work integrates the MIND-BODY-SPIRIT perspective that looks at healing holistically, bridging together all the senses and experiences. One of her gifts is the ability to see the inner mechanics of the chakra energy circuit, which is unique to every individual and requires a customized approach for optimal results.

Anya's background in dance and current studies in Shamanic Fusion ritual dancing infuses her women empowerment sessions with somatic and ritual healing. She calls herself the "light-worker shadow dancer", and focuses on embracing not only the light of each individual, but also their shadow, which is equally as important. Deeply compassionate, every immersion creates a sacred space for the seeker to gain clarity, shed blocks  and open the heart to their highest and most blissful selves. 

As a recovering workaholic, Anya understands first hand the hamster wheel environment that modern society creates for us. That is why one of her many offerings is self-care and ritual for the conscious entrepreneurs, as she hopes to awaken the Goddess within every hardworking woman. The rise of an empowered woman is the rise of an empowered society. Her ultimate dream is for every person to stand in their power and align with their soul purpose, creating a life full of abundance, love, and joy.
