In the Indian epic the Ramayana, Ram (God) says to Hanuman, “Who are you?” Hanuman replies, “When I think I am my body, I serve you. When I identify with my soul, I am a part of you. When I awaken to my True Nature, you and I are one.” This captures the essence of what the Sacred can awaken in us: a life-long calling to be in service and devotion to Love. It is through this service and through this devotion that we begin to realize we are not separate. Love is the very nature of our Being. It is who we are.

About Me

I spent several years serving my beloved teacher Ram Dass on Maui. It was during this time that I committed myself to the practice of kirtan and the path of Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of service and devotion to God. I also received the rare chance to be in close proximity to a being who truly lived from the heart. Whether he was lecturing on stage, at the dinner table with friends or alone in his room, Ram Dass rested in and acted from a place of love. I believe that this is the most important thing anyone can learn- to live from the heart, to act from the heart, to sing from the heart.

This is Ram Dass’s main teaching, and it continues the wisdom passed down from his guru, the great saint Neem Karoli Baba, who said “Love everyone, serve everyone, remember God, and tell the Truth.” I try to make these four words, love, service, remembrance, and truth as the foundation of everything I do. I can’t think of any better map to navigate life with.

I want to do anything I can to develop these qualities in myself, thus I often find myself singing, teaching, writing, and serving whenever and wherever anyone will let me- this has included a wide variety of settings from yoga studios, music festivals and retreat centers to homeless shelters, hospice clinics, mental health facilities, and prisons.

Kirtan & Workshops

Kirtan is a practice of Bhakti Yoga, or the yoga of love and devotion towards God. As it says in Be Here Now, “The way Bhakti works is you just love until you and the Beloved become One.” It is the call-and-response chanting of the various names of God/dess from the ancient Sanskrit language. All of these Names point to the deepest reaches of our own heart where our True Nature resides.

Besides singing kirtan, I am a social worker and spend a good portion of my time writing. I also offer workshops on Bhakti Yoga, interspirituality, meditation, and the intersection between spirituality and social action, and am available for one-on-one spiritual support.

I draw my inspiration from my beloved teacher Ram Dass, the great Indian Saint Neem Karoli Baba, Hanuman, and the Divine Mother. I also find inspiration in all of the world’s great wisdom and mystic traditions and have received great benefit, insight, and grace from Sufism, Buddhism, Hermeticism, Christianity, as well as the many forms of modern psychotherapy.

Spiritual Support

All donations go towards my service work with Kripa

I offer donation-based, heart-to-heart video-chat support for those seeking spiritual support. This is offered freely as Seva to ensure everyone has access to the Eternal Teachings.

Something beautiful happens when people on the path come together: we help each other to open our hearts. This deepens the space between us to allow for that Ineffable, Transformative Love.

I also recognize that many of us live in environments where we don’t have much support from a greater spiritual community. This can leave us feeling isolated when:

A transpersonal experience has shattered the world as we know it…
We want to calibrate our lives towards service, reverence, and contemplation…
After years of relishing in the juice of connection, we enter a dry spell and feel stuck in our spiritual practice…
REACH OUT
We want to use our spiritual values, insights, and worldview to navigate grief, loss, life transitions, closing chapters, and new beginnings…
