I am so grateful to all the teachers, gurus, mentors and teachings that have guided me on this incredible journey over the last 25 years. I am also grateful to all my students and clients that have put their trust in me and opened their hearts and allowed me to learn how to put the giant knowledge of the Vedas into practice.
What I have learnt is that our gurus, mentors and teachings can open the doors and show us the way; but they cannot tell us exactly what to do, or take the journey for us. Nor can they take away all the obstacles and challenges our journey will inevitably bring . There are so many temptations along the way, and it is so easy to lose ourselves and abandon our spiritual journey, or look for easy answers that promise effortless salvation.
I have also learned that understanding the karmas revealed by the Vedic horoscope is critical for attaining self knowledge, and freedom from our unconscious traps that keep us stuck in the same repetitive cycles that cause our suffering.
I am an avid student of life and my academic interest go well beyond just Vedic studies. Therefore, I am able to offer a healing approach that is well rounded, accessible, practical and constructive to 21st Century physical, mental, spiritual and relationship problems.
I have developed a unique Integrative Vedic Astrology Counseling training, which keeps the authenticity of the Vedic Astrology tradition but also draws from current models of knowledge in psychoanalysis and therapy. I have studied the likes of Freud, Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell, as well as continue to follow the current breakthroughs in Neuroscience, Artificial Intelligence and Epigenetics, which enhance our understanding of the Vedic horoscope.
In my Ayurveda practice, I also incorporate functional medicine and the latest breakthroughs in medicine to address physical and mental health problems that are unique to our current environment.
In my private practice, I customize my approach to each and every client and do not use any formulas en-masse, whether ancient or modern. I believe that maintaining the body/mind and consciousness ecosystem is just as delicate a balancing act as restoring the earth's ecosystem and there are no simple formulas that work for everyone, as each person's physical/mental and karmic ecosystem is unique.
The term holistic in Yoga means much more than treating our body as a whole or living off the grid, and eating organic food - it means living life on nature's terms. It means not resisting natural laws, which are called Sanatana Dharma in the Yogic tradition. It means restoring our inner ecosystem by following the cosmic laws of Dharma and Karma. Our planet's future depends on us creating a sustainable inner and outer ecology.
Peace and well-being can be attained by all who seek it with real desire and sincerity of purpose.
