The concept of Shanti Vida was born from my desire to convert life’s misfortunes into fortunes. This change in attitude and perception allowed me to generate a deep love for myself and those around me…. It was not only a desire, but a need.
In 2017, I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. When confronted with this situation, I couldn’t help but think that my years of abuse and self-hatred played a major role in my illness.
My desire was to find not only ways to cope, but to learn how I got here and how to continue. Ultimately, I was afraid to leave this world without having lived true to my purpose. I decided to change the way I live today, and there began my process.
My mission is to continue my own education & healing journey while helping others heal themselves too. Now and for the rest of my journey I want to dedicate myself to sharing and generating positivity and love.  Understanding the true meaning: that life is a journey and not a destination. We can start doing this is by stopping “self improvement” and start “self exploring”.
I BELIEVE LIFE IS ABOUT FUN AND CELEBRATING LOVE.
I WANT TO SHARE AND GENERATE AS MUCH POSITIVITY WITH MY INTENTION AND DEEPEST WISH FOR ALL – SHANTI VIDA – PEACEFUL LIFE. 
With lots of love & light, 
Des.
