Welcome to my home, production office, garden, and research lab.

ABOUT

It was the best of times.  I had produced an Independent Spirit award-winning film in Hollywood, served globally as an NGO International Director and Break the Cycle National Director, 

Before then, my life was anything but smooth sailing. 

Growing up with an alcoholic father caused me to become a teen runaway and develop stress-related illnesses. This sparked my passion to uncover new solutions for stress, health, and empowerment.

I didn’t want difficulties to control my destiny, so I set out on a journey of discovery. Over the next 25 years, I studied alongside experts from diverse fields: masters of meditation in India, holistic experts in Japan, and leading Western scientists.

Life got better. But with success came more stress, and so did unhappiness, anxiety, and illness. Clearly my quest for life-long wellness and empowerment was not complete.  [READ MORE]

My exploration into modern science and ancient wisdom led to a mind-blowing discovery – our most valuable SUPERpower. It completely transformed my life and my health. It was the solution I was searching for.

So, I developed SOSmethod to ignite your SUPERpower. Its one of the amazing tools that helps you unlock many doors along your NEXTjourney. Together, their life-altering effects on your mind/body result in greater happiness, health, wealth, and relationships.

Then I traveled for 18 years, documenting qualitative field research with diverse populations, and evolving the process.

It has become my life’s passion to share it with you.

Inspired to Empower Your Life?

Circumstances don’t have to direct your life. You can turn challenges into adventures!

YOU MIGHT HAVE SEEN ME ON:

NOT YOUR TYPICAL MEDITATION MASTER, MENTOR, OR MONK

I’m actually not one who sits still for very long. As a mental health activist, author, speaker, and SUPERpower Whisperer, I’ve toured extensively across Canada, Europe, Australia, Africa, Asia,  India, and the good old USA.

You’ll find me in all kinds of places besides temples and mountain tops. I’ve taught business professionals with depression, victims of abuse, traumatized veterans with chronic illnesses, and LGBTQ kids suffering from anxiety.

From travel on foot across wilderness to flying in cargo planes, sleeping in dirt floor huts, or simply under a starry sky…  I love it all! And that includes the finer things life has to offer – exploring vibrant cities, uniques cultures, and fabulous cuisine

Peace of mind, hope, and empowerment will ignite the innovative leaders that shape our future world..
