Fragments of My Journey
Each unfulfilled area of our lives is a challenge to our purpose and stability, or otherwise a source of frustration.
Mastering obstacles to win unalloyed fulfilment.
Our prosperity, our existence, depends on the existence and happiness of everyone and all things. This is the wisdom of inter-being, the interrelation of all phenomena.
From early adulthood, I dedicated my life's work to the study of human behaviour, and the incredible intricacies of the human mind. Also throughout my many years pursuing truth and freedom from the mind, I had mastered the core teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti. After studying Fine Art and Psychology and working as a Contemporary Artist, Coaching and the "nature of mind" was a natural progressive step forward.
I have coached and guided successful people from all walks of life, from CEOs, Professionals, Artists, Entrepreneurs to Students, and regular people like you and me who were just trying to live the best life they could build for themselves. I have now over fifteen years’ experience in Mindfulness, Coaching, Logotherapy, Philosophy, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Consciousness Development, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Additionally, I am a body-language expert and uniquely equipped to find and get the best out of my clients - especially when they cannot see it themselves. I am also an entrepreneur and co-founder of three Internet startups.
I am an accomplished Contemporary Fine Art Painter, have travelled the world immersing myself in cultures and countries, gaining knowledge on many subjects’ matter, included psychological development, phenomenology, the nature of mind, meditation, spiritual inquiry, human relationships, and everything that would lead to a fundamental change in consciousness and society. All this has enriched my understanding of the human psyche and allowed me to push my clients further than they ever thought they could go.
