A Personal Message 

 If you can read Chinese (on my name tag), you will see they call me "Grand Pa" in Taiwan which is a great compliment


For me, human flourishing is personal!

Stepping up to all that life offers has always been important to me.  What started in 1984 as a quest to live a more fulfilling life by embracing the yogic path has turned into an approach that has helped thousands of my students and clients confidently transform their lives and experience more contentment, less anxiety, and abundant freedom. And they are highly effective in whatever pursuit they choose as their focus.  By engaging the principles and practices drawn from ancient wisdom and modern science that I have embraced, I'm here to help you create a life of inspiration and fulfillment.  Please join me.

I have a visceral feeling of how this work has transformed me - a better understanding of my "self" and how all wisdom and answers are within me.
