"Your own Self-realization is the greatest service you can render the world.
We loosely talk of Self-realization, for lack of a better term. But how can one realize or make real that which alone is real? All we need to do is to give up our habit of regarding as real that which is unreal. All religious practices are meant solely to help us do this. When we stop regarding the unreal as real, then Reality alone will remain, and we will be That."
~ Ramana Maharshi ~
On the first day of the New Year in 2010, I had an encounter that I can only describe as divine. What began as a way to cure depression and heal a broken heart revealed itself to be an entry point into exploring my spiritual path. I had never formally learned about religion or spirituality and at twenty-one I started waking up to what it means to live a conscious, liberated life.
I've been exploring life's mysteries ever since.
And while I have no answers, I've found "fingers pointing to the moon" reminding me that there is something much deeper here.
Externally, this devotion has led me to work with conscious leaders dedicated to helping people expand their creative capacities, transform their organizational cultures, and make a ripple of impact in their communities.
Internally, this deep longing for truth has guided me towards ancient teachings from Sufism, Buddhism, and Daoism as well as philosophies and the Yogic Traditions of Tantra, Raja, and Jhana yoga.
This journey of exploration has taken me across the world from East to West only to return to the real adventure, which I call "The Adventure of the Heart", a returning to love and the heart center. Learn more through my blog and if you'd like to collaborate on projects that align with expanding consciousness and creativity, please reach out directly!
Thank you and 1,000 blessings on your journey.
In love and gratitude,
