Krisena Curry, Independent Licensed Ishtara Teacher
My name is Krisena Curry, and I bring safety to chaos with deep, passionate love and vulnerability. I hold anger as sacred. I am the Dancing Flame.
I am a woman with a calling on her life to learn, heal, grow, expand, and lead the way to help other women find their truth through radical self-love and healing--often through taboo or unconventional modalities.
I am a continually evolving woman doing deep devotional work to find her truth and belonging. I am married with 3 children, a Registered Nurse, a top business leader, a coach, and a teacher.
I grew up in a small town in Montana and never felt like I belonged. Female relationships felt very unsafe. I craved sisterhood but feared it more than I could sustain it. The grief of losing my mother in 2016 consumed me. I had created a million-dollar business in direct sales, but old patterns from the past reminded me that women will always leave me and that they are not safe. I finally left that business and my colleagues, along with the money and power. I was debilitated with grief, shame, and the persistent wound of sisterhood betrayal.
In the pursuit to heal and find my truth, I knew I wanted to help others. But I was scared to death to put myself back ‘out there.’ I had to go back to nursing right as the pandemic hit and my father died. My broken heart could barely endure the trauma of it all.
When I was introduced to ISHTARA in 2023, my body knew something I could not comprehend with my mind. It literally saved my life.
I realize now that I was trapped in a nervous system that did not allow for my full self-expression. I hid in plain sight, creating chaos, trying to hide my anger and shame while it simmered within me, causing physical pain and keeping me stuck. My emotions did not have a safe release and would escape me and hurt others, only to compound my shame and frustration. Ishtara taught me to safely release the strong emotional charges I would feel in my body and lean in with an open heart to find radical acceptance of myself and others.
I also found sisterhood, and for the first time in my life, I feel SAFE to be ALL that I am, in the world.
I let myself be as I am, allowing other women permission to be their whole selves. I guide you to stir the embers of your desires into your fully expressed purpose and power with deep love and devotion.
I am honored to dance around the fire with you.
