From an early age I had a strong inner awareness that our sole purpose in being here was to ‘evolve spiritually’. Its taken 30 years of personal exploration to bring me to a point where I begin to know myself, in my true essence, and thus find a point of balance from which to view all things.
I’m not saying that I’m ‘cooked’ yet, but the quest for what is real has driven me to explore the teaching of Yoga, meditation, mantra, Reiki and crystals. Through studying and applying these wisdom teachings directly I have found a sense of inner peace which is (almost) unshakable.
In order to integrate what I learned, I had to teach. Each student brings so much of their own wisdom and the discussions which arise, spontaneously, the discoveries which we make together, continue to inform my own practice. For this I am truly grateful.
There have been some incredible teachers who have helped me, and continue to do so. In particular I am forever indebted to the teachings and inner guidance of our guru of Integral Yoga, H.H. Sri Swami Satchidananda. To the published teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. To Amma, Mother Meera , Sai Baba and Satyananda for their darshan. To my teachers Rowan Cobelli and Stephan Trefzer for their infinite patience and inspirational practice.
