Working with people who are in relationship 'crisis' or flux, she facilitates them to make choices that bring them more fulfilling love lives. Whether it’s ending a partnership, creating a new relationship, or a mid-relationship dilemma the space of transition is rich with gifts: you are at the crossroads of many possible futures. The choice is yours. But making the choice on your own can be so challenging with the torrent of emotions that accompany love dilemmas. Vena's work enables clients to make clear choices in that compelling and confusing thing we call love. Unusually, her energy work allows clients to access the emotional charge of the situation and turn it into useful and useable energy that they can use in every aspect of their lives. Working this way, the gifts of passion are manifold. Vena's work draws on the classical Indian energy traditions: yoga, ayurveda and tantra; unlocking the body's inherent power to clarify and pull our inner intentions into physical form. Her approach makes these techniques directly relevant to a Western, twenty-first century lifestyle.
