Muluk Tofino

Tofino Dream!
The ocean is calling and I am following the signs.

This is how it happened….
I have been a surfer my whole life. But for many years I have stopped going to the waves. For the past 10 yrs that I have lived in Canada I have connected with the mountains and it has been a beautiful journey. But the ocean, the waves and the surf have always stayed in my heart. This past summer I was blessed with a couple of trips to Tofino and Ucluelet. And I felt a strong connection again with the ocean and the waves. I was in trouble. I started day dreaming about living in that beautiful and magical land. And you know how they say, “be careful for what you wish for.”

And so, about a month ago I was invited to Ukee (Ucluelet) to offer a workshop at The Den. The last day I was there I went to Wickaninnish Beach to look for the waves. While I was looking out to the ocean and playing with my dog Muluk, I met a women with her dog. We started chatting and I told her how all my life I’ve always dreamed of living where I could surf. She looked at me and said “You should connect with the acupuncturist in Tofino, she is looking for someone to take over her practice while she goes into Mat leave.” I thought to myself “Ok, Universe, I hear your calling, and I am going to follow the sign.” So the next day I wrote to her and the rest is history.

I am moving to Tofino November 6th. I am going to take over Robyn K. Sorge’s TCM and Acupuncture practice for one year at Arbutus Health Centre while she is in Mat Leave. It wasn’t an easy decision because I LOVE Squamish, I LOVE the community I have cultivated here and I LOVE my patients in my Vancouver and Squamish TCM practice. It is hard to let go of people and places you LOVE. Also, its scary to walk into a whole new life, with a whole new community, a new practice & new patients. I feel I am walking into the unknown! But I have learned in my life that in order to grow, you have to come out of your comfort zone. And the more you grow and learn, the more you can be of service to your community. So here I go, once again into the unknown, pushing boundaries and being in the uncomfortable for a while in order to learn, grow and experience something new that will help me be a better version of myself. I feel very lucky and excited to have this opportunity. So wish me luck on this new adventure!!

Before I go, I wish to express my gratitude to all the people that have supported me in this journey of following my dreams and becoming an alternative healthcare practitioner. I wish to express my gratitude to my beautiful family, to my teachers, to my sangha, to my collegues, to my sister friends, to my yoga community, and to my patients. I am very grateful for the time I have spent in Vancouver and Squamish. For the mountains, the snow and the amazing nature that surrounds us.

To my patients: thank you for trusting me with your healing process, I wish you the best and hope that you keep following your dreams! Below I will list the names of all my favorite healthcare practitioners in Vancouver & Squamish so that you can continue with your healing journey with ease. I am here to answer any questions. Please call, write or text anytime.
