Scholar, Mystic and Badass
Have you had an experience beyond your five senses that revealed something important to you? As scientist and educator, Dr. Roksana Badruddoja is committed to developing techniques and tools to more regularly access the noetic space.
Dr. Roksana Badruddoja is a Healing Justice Warrior as a Cross-Cultural and Inter-Faith Urban Akashic and Shamanic Counselor and Flower Essence Practitioner through her/their Conscious Business Dreams of Munay. She/they is a feminine/masculine woman of color, a womanist (inter-faith and cross-cultural feminism), a critical race theorist and gender scholar, a tenured professor of sociology and women and gender studies at Manhattan College, and a queer mother to three fierce energy beings. Dr. Badruddoja’s commitment lies in releasing racial, sexual and gender traumas. In addition, as a mother and survivor of Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG), a life-threatening pregnancy related trauma, Dr. Badruddoja centers her work around motherwork, pregnancy and birth traumas, including HG sufferers and survivors and experiences of HG-related therapeutic terminations.
Dr. Badruddoja’s research in the areas of race and ethnicity, sexuality, gender, religion and culture, and how these impact women have been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals. These include the National Women’s Studies Association Journal, the International Journal of Sociology of the Family, and the International Review of Modern Sociology. She/they is the author of Eyes of the Storms: The Voices of South Asian-American Women, which was exhibited at the South Asian Literary and Theatre Arts Festival in the National Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian Institution in 2012, exhibited at Queens Museum of Art in 2012; and featured in The New York Times in 2012; the editor of “New Maternalisms”: Tales of Mother (Dislodging the Unthinkable) and a contributor to Good Girls Marry Doctors: South Asian American Daughters on Obedience and Rebellion, a finalist for the Indie Book Award and being taught by Melissa Harris-Perry at Wake Forest University.
Coming home for me is about integrating my experiences in contemporary academia with ancient healing and energetic practices.
Dr. Badruddoja was trained in the Akashic Records by Tara Jolley, Roni Reisler and Baltazar Villareal of Akashic Records Consultants International (ARCI). She/they is also engaged in a cross-cultural shamanic training in the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition Lineage by don Oscar Miro-Quesada and a shamanic apprenticeship in the tradition of Ho’omana with Shamanic Vision by Paul Hinsberger and Neelam Nanwani. Finally, Dr. Badruddoja trained in Sacred Plant Medicine as a Flower Essence Practitioner to heal Feminine Health with Joanne Ameya Cohen. And, she/they has worked with Sergio Magaña to learn Dream Practices and Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield for Mindfulness. Dr. Badruddoja is a Vipassana Meditator in the tradition of S.N. Goenka.
Dr. Badruddoja engages with the sacred and ancient Akashic Records (non-physical plane of existence/”The Book of Life”/central storehouse of all information occurring in the history of world) through a spiritual technique centered on using a Sacred Prayer that allows information to come through from Divine Source while being present and conscious. The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition of Shamanism is a system that uses an altar/mesa that allows the apprentice to transforms not only their lives but the lives of others and also our planet/Mother Earth/Gaia/Pachamama/Bhumi Devi. And, Flower essences are liquid energetic medicine from living flowers used to shift vibrations of deep-seated beliefs and patterns. All spiritual techniques allows one to consciously open a portal into their hearts and the Universe for healing.
