We live in a paradigm anchored to assumptions of separation and isolation and driven by the forces of fear and self-concern.
Together we can move into a new paradigm grounded in the direct recognition of Oneness and the principles of interdependence and coexistence.
I have dedicated my life to the exploration of how deep meditation and spiritual inquiry can liberate our hearts and minds from the hypnotic spell of separation and division into the reality of Unity and Love.
My passion is sharing the miracles that I've discovered with a growing community of practitioners around the world.

The best thing we can do is engage with each other around the things that capture our imagination and move our heart.
We must become porous vessels for inspired perspectives and inspired ideas and let all the exchange and the interaction and growth generate a kind of creative friction that will allow something to emerge between us that none of us could imagine.
I think of myself as a teacher of meditation and mystical philosophy, but of course at least half of the things people ask of me are about how to live a better, more spiritual, more awakened and fulfilling human life.
Ramana tells a story, in The Spiritual Teachings of Ramana Maharshi, about a boy who is fast asleep when his mother feeds him. He eats just as well as if he was awake. But the next morning, he says that he didn’t eat. Of course, the mother knows that he did. Just because the child wasn’t aware of it happening, did not mean that it didn’t happen. And the fact that he wasn’t aware while eating didn’t hinder his ability to eat at all.
As a meditation practitioner and teacher, I have experienced myself, and witnessed others experience, the miracle of radical liberation countless times. There are many forms of meditation designed for a variety of purposes. The form that I teach is designed to bring you into direct recognition of your own inherently limitless nature. This recognition is the source of profound freedom.
In my last essay, I explained that a powerful and positive sense of self is crucial on the path to awakening and it is equally important for the continued journey of conscious evolution after awakening. In this essay I want to discuss why and how.
The path of awakening is often talked about as a path of self transcendence, so what roll could work on the self play in that process? What is a self?
