Here is everything about me. I work with individuals and groups, facilitating healing through the modalities of sound, plant medicines, health coaching (Root Cause Protocol), and meditation. Every teaching is provided in deep reverence to the original teachings, while integrating a multidisciplinary philosophy. Eastern philosophical systems, Western scientific methods, and the various shamanic lineages are all trying to teach us something about the nature of existence and consciousness.
I have spent the better part of my adult life exploring Eastern philosophical and practical systems of Yoga, Ayurveda, Buddhism, Thai bodywork, Japanese energy work, Amazonian + Native American plant medicines, and other traditional healing methods. I continue to learn on a daily basis. My formal Western education includes a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from UCLA and Bachelor of Music from NYU. I hold the highest available designation with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT 500, certifying over 500 hours of training and 2,000+ hours of teaching. I co-created the 200-hour and 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training Programs at Urban Yoga in Downtown Phoenix and co-directed the program from 2014-2017. I hold certifications in Thai Massage, Thai Foot Massage, Tok Sen, plus hundreds of non-certifiable hours of study with his teacher, Ajarn Pichest Boonthumme, all obtained in Thailand. I have studied the plant medicines Ayahuasca and Huachuma (San Pedro), Peyote as well as other plant medicines, in the Peruvian Amazon and Sacred Valley of Peru.
