LGBQTIA+ Who Am I? Who Are You? Healing & Evolving
Perspectives from Lesbian, Gay, & Transgender BBSH Graduates and former faculty

We invite you to join us for an exploration of self-discovery through gender and sexuality. Come listen to the stories of Ky Scott, Sandy Rakowitz, and Deckllan Marckle Hartte as they share their experiences growing up outside of the heteronormative gender-binary. We hope that this space offers you a deepening of self discovery as you ask what it means to you to be a man, woman, or non-binary individual. How does your sexuality serve you in your unique journey of self-awareness?

Ky (uses pronouns he/him) has a BA in multi-cultural education from the University of Maryland. He went on to complete his MA coursework in English Literature, focusing on gender and sexuality, and taught Beginning Writing at Florida Atlantic University.

Ky then trained and worked as a Licensed Massage Therapist. After completing his bodywork training, he helped assist Body Electric workshops. These workshops grew out of the AIDS epidemic and the need for gay men to find safer ways of experiencing/expressing their intimacy and connection to the Divine.

Ky graduated BBSH 2002, ASBIW in 2004, and was then hired to teach, serving on both the sophomore and senior year teams. His senior class project at BBSH was on “Sexual Fantasy as a Gateway to Understanding Our Childhood Wounding and Core Longing.”

Ky’s private practice has focused on teaching mediation to couples and families to transform conflict into intimacy. Currently he is pursuing a path to become an Associate Helper in the Mid-Atlantic Pathwork and is adjunct faculty at BBSH, offering support around gender and sexuality.

Ky’s journey of self discovery has included study/exploration around gender fluidity, same-sex desire, bisexuality, pansexualism, BDSM (training with spiritual leaders in this field), and polyamorous vs. monogamous relationships. He believes that all forms of gender expression and sexual attraction are sacred teachers of our divine nature.
Sandy guides people to find their voice and realize their dreams through innovative Multidimensional Coaching, Animal Communication and Soul Path Programs. Sandy graduated BBSH 1995, and was on faculty from 1995-2001.

At 27, Sandy ‘came out of the closet,’ as a Lesbian. She understands her choice to incarnate as a Lesbian, Jew, Woman, as one who communicates openly and professionally with animals, nature, energy and consciousness across time and dimensions as co-creatively healing for herself, humankind and universal consciousness.

Sandy stands for believing in ‘What is Possible’ co-creating realties that have never before been able to be in existence - altogether, at the same time, openly, safely, in her personal life, publicly, professionally, in the name of the highest of Light and Love, all while getting paid well.
Deckllan Marckle Hartte is a Two Spirit Light Being, presenting in a Transgender Masculine Experience; uses the pronouns He/Him.
Deckllan graduated from Barbara Brennan School of Healing in 1995 and Barbara Brennan’s Teacher Training Program in 1998. For over 25 years, he has been professionally holding space and guiding others on their journey in this life.
He encourages the exploration and recognition of all the parts of one’s self including, self-love and release into the personal expression of a soul’s longing and heart’s desire. By openly exploring the idea that it ok to love every part of your being, even those currently suffocated by their self-critic and self-judger, we can explore the areas that that are limited and longing to be released, seen and loved by you. The judge within us is essential and worthy of love; it is present to provide objective balance and harmony, not repression and suffering.
When you can progress through your life in acceptance, feeling all your emotions, you are able to be more present; to create the life you have come here to live more fully.
