Throughout my journey, I have been privileged to see so much of the world, meet the most incredible people, and study with the best teachers. These experiences have brought me greater awareness and tremendous peace.

Deciding to walk away from my corporate career to move to an island in Africa opened me up to more freedom than I’ve ever known. That leap of faith also created an openness in me that ushered in a spiritual awakening, that continues to unfold. (As the saying goes, when the student is ready, the teacher appears!)

I’ve been inspired to write and speak about these experiences, on my journey to ultimate freedom, because I know that the gifts I’ve been given were meant to be shared. It is my sincere hope that others might be inspired to let go of anything that might be keeping them from experiencing the unending joy, peace, and freedom that is our true nature.
