A spokeswoman for nature, Sacred Warrior founder Vanessa Chakour has spoken at United Nations, Brown University and The Muhammad Ali Center. An herbalist, artist, activist, meditation teacher, former competitive boxer and trainer, Vanessa’s teachings are a dynamic blend of her vast personal experiences over the last two decades. Her unique approach is rooted in the belief that healing happens through re-awakening an intuitive connection to ourselves, our bodies, the natural world and our own “inner-wild.”
