I am Barbara, an experience designer, creative producer, and holistic healer.
My roots are in Brasil and my growth is in California.
I was born by the beach in Rio de Janeiro and moved to the Bay Area when I was 11 years old. Growing up my mother introduced me to many holistic practices, and at 8 years old I followed her footsteps by becoming an energy healer.
At 13 years old I began my 10 year long modeling career leading me into becoming a creative producer. I've worked with Fortune 500 companies, have lived in 4 major cities and traveled extensively around the globe. I speak fluent English and Portuguese, conversational Spanish, and I can get around in French - specially after a glass of Bordeaux. ;)
In 2013 I began incorporating my love for bringing people together, my experience in creative production with my wisdom of mysticism + holistic practices to design transformational experiences ranging from retreats, workshops, and group programs to intentional gatherings and music events.
I am passionate about creating spaces that inspire inner growth and outer shifts. In 2015 I co-founded Creator Conceptions a team of event and space designers building unique experiences with a focus on art and ritual. Earlier that year I co-created Nadi Society an event series focused on women's empowerment and community building. At the end of 2014 Deep Tea Haus was co-birthed - the perfect marriage of Chinese tea ceremonies and Berlin's deep house music, which has since been brought to cities around the world setting an example for conscious celebration and intentional social gatherings.
I currently live in San Francisco with my life partner and my two kitties, Nina and Ishtar. I spend my days drinking tea with friends, adventuring to beautiful landscapes, and dancing all worries away. I believe life is to be lived through the pure and playful heart of a child, and I chose to see life through pronoiac eyes - the belief that the whole world is conspiring to shower us with blessings. My hobbies include: quantum physics, dance, ceremonies, and discovering magic in unknown places.
