I am a simple pilgrim. I've walked across the USA for these past two and a half years and now travel from town to town in a tiny motorhome emblazoned with the telling words "Yoga for Peace". I serve the divine in all and support our universal journey to find the happiness and peace for which we search.
My path has taken me through India and Sannyasa (renunciation of lower "self") of the great teacher Adi Sankaracharya's, and more recently Sri Swami Sivanandaji's "Saraswati" lineage, thus I am called a "Swami". I honor equally all beings, faiths and paths. There is but one Truth that all of the great teachers speak of and each of us are children of that Truth. The goal of each of us is finally to know Peace, which is attained internally through purification and relinquishment reaching equanimity of mind (variously called Yoga, Surrender, Submission, Faith, Selflessness, etc) and externally through abiding kindness.
I travel to offer kindness, to inspire, to demonstrate living in Peace, and to share the ancient and universal teachings of Yoga through talks, workshops and practices. The guidance is practical, it includes some philosophy, examples and stories and focuses on practices that you can implement to bring peace and joy into your life.
I would love to join you to share and discuss the way of Peace. I'm happy to meet with you as an individual, with your family and friends, or with a group. I join friends in all sorts of venues, including:
The messages and examples we discuss are of great value to all. If you are interested please let me know; I'm happy to follow up on any lead that you provide or to join you in any venue and with any group that you offer. I do not charge for these talks and ask for nothing other than for us to join together and share.
Please also see the "Videos" and "Testimonials" pages and contact me to schedule a talk in your area. Thank you!
