If I've seen further, it's because I've stood on the shoulders of giants. - Isaac Newton
Our story begins long, long ago (1992)
in a land far, far away (Kailua-Kona)...
I've taught meditation, yoga and energy healing for almost three decades, with the intent to strengthen not only the body, but the mind and spirit as well. I have been blessed to have my knowledge and growth nurtured by many great teachers. These techniques encourage us to approach our lives with understanding and grace. This is what I have experienced and this is what I teach.
Our journey started in a metaphysical center in Kona. We studied with Kahuna's Lanakila Brandt and Tiger Esper, learning traditional Hawaiian spirituality, healing and meditation techniques. We spent time with Tibetan monks, participating in a White Tara Empowerment ceremony, and were present during the creation of a sand mandala for world healing. We also were fortunate enough to meet and study with numerous spiritual teachers and healers from various traditions.
A decade later, our paths had taken us away from the islands and each other. One of us searching the west, one of us searching the east - both of us searching for answers.
My journey took me from being a well known speaker in the twelve steps, to becoming a 32nd degree Mason, to then becoming a Christian Pastor. Through each of these experiences, I discovered different spiritual truths that taught me to live with more compassion. I lead my life from my spiritual heart and that is what I hope to teach to others.
Another decade had passed when our paths were once again combined. We both realized that somewhere between the east and the west, there is true north. where we find a spirit led life. Together we have created a design for living, based on spiritual truths that transcend dogma and ritual.
