My name is Tanya Raven and I am passionate about living my life fully - happy and healthy. I am on a mission to elevate the vibration of this planet through my own personal evolution and growth, be in tune with the rhythms of nature, and to live each day with mindfulness, peace, and love and Inspire Intuitive Health. My highest self is when I tap into my inner nature child and connect to the Earth and laugh and not take life so seriously!
I laugh easily and things are funny!
And this is coming from the girl who took herself very seriously… I always had drama, always played the victim card, always blaming and judging… and while these parts of me are still in my shadow self, I now see the gift in them and I am aware and I’m not attached to those old stories anymore. I like to say I’m in the “awareness stage of life” and it feels amazing to be here. To have total freedom and manifestation powers and confidence and courage. To live life with intention, and with an open heart and to flow with compassion - these are the qualities I’ve discovered and reconnected within myself and my vision is to inspire others to do the same. Because if we can all do our own work, in remembering to remember our magnificence, our greatness, our divine wisdom, our Innate Intelligence - it is not selfish, it is actually contributing to a greater, healthier, more loving world!
Life is abundant and beautiful when I am present.
A pivotal turning point in my life, I like to call the “best/worst thing that ever happened to me”, was in August 2011 after a night of drinking my worries away, I was hit by a car while walking across the street. It totally destroyed me for year, but my healing and awakening journey began that night and has continued ever since. I started traveling, (something I had never really done until after I recovered), doing yoga, meditating, and diving deeper into health and wellness and spirituality. Each experience, each person, each place has helped me grow and expand and evolve - I am so grateful for all of it!
Growing up in New Jersey, I didn’t learn a lot about nutrition and so while I was living in NYC, I enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition which opened me up to a plethora of health and wellness knowledge and community. I was then fortunate enough to meet my Ayurvedic Nutrition and Culinary teacher, Divya Alter and I then immersed myself in this ancient knowledge, learning SV Ayurveda (Shaka Vansiya) which is a familial lineage of Ayurveda tracing back to the ancient texts, known as the Puranas. I graduated in 2016 as part of Divya’s first group of SV “Ayurvedic Warriors”.
Shortly thereafter, I left my cushy NYC Corporate America advertising sales job in exchange for more traveling and soul searching and adventures - and there were many! I have taught cooking classes, cooked for retreats and I’ve also been a private postpartum Ayurvedic chef during mama’s sacred window (more to come on that!). Now my focus is on education, writing, and empowering others to craft their Innate Health Ethos.
After years of searching outside of myself, throughout my travels, doctors/specialists, energy work, plant medicine, you name it, I constantly wanted other people to give me the answers, to anything and everything I seeked - and once I truly got grounded - I realized that I actually have all the divine wisdom inside of me, we all do. And while I still consume conscious information and follow advice from experts in their field, before I do anything I check in with myself. This process has become so very empowering for me and it is why I have dedicated this site to helping and inspiring others to rediscover their own Innate Intelligence.
May I remember to remember, this is all my beautiful dream.
I am now settled in North San Diego County, living in a beautiful home surrounded by nature - exactly what I wanted! I always say that the Universe has better plans for me than I can come up with - when I trust and focus on the qualities and way I want to feel, it happens and it happens better than I can imagine! My community, my tribe is amazing and supportive, I am so in love, and each relationship is a potent mirror which reflects where I am at in each moment.
