Born to parents from South East Poland she was raised with the old traditions of Eastern European Pagan Catholicism. She has been a student of astrology, tarot and rune casting since 1987, hatha yoga, magick and Kabbalah since 1990.
Veronica holds an Honors Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Religious Studies from the University of Toronto, with special focus on Buddhism, shamanic religions, and social theory. In 1998 Veronica took a life-changing trip through South India to study Jnana and Bhakti Yoga, visiting temple towns, ashrams and archaeological sites in Tamil Nadu. In 2004, she completed Ashtanga Yoga teacher training with Ron Reid, Diane Bruni and Meenakshi Joy at Downward Dog Yoga Toronto and from 2008 – 2009 she had private Sivananda Yoga and Vedanta teacher training with Swami Nityamuktananda of Kerala. He was trained at the Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy in Rishikesh, in the direct lineage of Swami Sivananda Saraswati and Swami Vishnudevananda.
Veronica’s formal astrology studies began in 1995, with Robin Armstrong (RASA School of Astrology) of Toronto. Through his continued guidance over the years, her practice has deepened to a fundamentally shamanic approach which honors the interconnected beauty and wonder of this world. She has also studied with the American Federation of Astrologers, the London Centre for Psychological Astrology, and continues to study with its offshoot, MISPA (Mercury Internet School of Psychological Astrology), run by the esteemed John Green.
Veronica spent ten years as an art purchaser for an international interior design firm before deciding to embrace her own path as a creator. A writer since childhood, she formalized her training with the Creative Writing Program at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies, focusing on Poetry and the Novel. As a student and analysand of Jungian psychology, she is fascinated with the interconnections of spirit and culture, the power of symbolism and the impact of art and imagery on the process of human development. She lives in the country with her family – two gifted teens, a German Shepherd and her beautiful husband, her other half and the love of her life.
