    Chamica Dennis- You steam what?

    With a background in marketing and sales her entrepreneurial spirit and desire to empower others lead her on a spiritual journey of finding her voice, establishing healthier boundaries and creating a life she doesn't need a vacation from. She was being called as a healer and she answered. On her journey back home she rediscovered her sensuality and her sexuality, more importantly she found herself. Chamica was called to a more indigenous and eastern holistic approach of treating the whole person and the importance of women's health. It was then that Monarch Zen Healing Arts was created and she began sharing her medicine with the world. It is now her passion and purpose to facilitate other women infreeing themselves and reclaiming their body sovereignty.


    “Guide me and heal me so that I might be of greater service to others" is her life mantra


    Today she teaches women how to find their voice, releasing shame and guilt, how to show up authentically and reconnect with their bodies through breath, movement and energy healing which allows them to work through anxiety and stress to experience life as they were meant to.. Wild and Free


    She is also the creator of Sacred Womb Talk and currently teaches workshops throughout the valley, hosts retreats, teaches private yoga, reiki, life and Soul coaching and is a c.h.t
