I tapped into my spirituality and understanding of energy in the early 90's. While in Business School in Thailand, I became deeply drawn to Buddhism and Vipassana Meditation. After completing my MBA and working in management in the transportation and internet industries, I went through a spiritual experiential program called the Nine Gates Mystery School in the desert of Joshua Tree, California, that shifted my life. In 2001, I began working with shamans and expanding my understanding of healing tools.
Over the next few years, I went through reiki training, drank ayahuasca in the deep jungles of Ecuador with the Shuar Indians and in northern Peru with a cool shaman, trained with a family of healers in the Ecuadorian Andes, studied medicinal herbs, Spring Forest Qi-Gong, took various workshops and began to perform energy and sound work on a part-time basis with clients.
