I am Maria Lusitano, an heart medicine energy healer and mystic. In my practice I weave Western science based Medicine with spiritual healing I hold a degree in Medicine concluded in 1997 (Portugal, EU) and was a practicing doctor for 10 years.
Since 2011 I engaged in a profound spiritual journey, and relentless quest for truth exploring Dzogchen, Sufism and Western Mystical Practices which led me to experience a spiritual awakening in 2016. I moved then, to more embodied heart centred practices. I have worked in my past as an international artist and a healer. My unique line of work weaves western science with spirituality, and I work with energy medicine, heart centred practices and art. I hold a PhD as a visual artist, taken at University of Westminster.
