Alina Shalev is an artist, spiritual teacher, and speaker. She was born and raised in Transylvania, Romania. Alina arrived in the US in her early twenties. Initially unable to speak English, she eventually went on to achieve many dreams: becoming a commercial pilot working on Gulfstream jets, being a broker and real estate investor, creating a family, and pursuing her interests in spirituality. She has learned to meditate in ashrams in India and prayed in ancient monasteries in Romania. She has studied with energy healers, shamans, and monks of various traditions and religions, and has become a Reiki Master, a certified Energy Medicine Practitioner, and a Re-connective Energy Healer. She learned Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and studied mandala art and sacred geometry.
Eager to share this knowledge with others, Alina founded a holistic private practice called Astra Healing, promoting spiritual awareness through art and meditation.
Alina currently lives with her husband, son, and Great Dane in Los Angeles, California. You can visit her online at www.alinashalev.com.
