Passion

Along the way

The spiritual realm has always fascinated me. As a young child, I contemplated the after-life and still do. I gazed into the clear, night sky with curiosity and still do. My seeking led me to many experiences along the way.

My passion of the mystics led me to studying Tibetan Buddhism, gaining a certification to practice Ayurvedic health, obtaining master-level yoga certification after teaching over 1000 classes, training with master Vedic astrologers, and studying Herbalism and natural remedies.

Try your best to be kind

My spiritual quest began in the Appalachian mountains raised in the local Southern Baptist Church. I learned to pray and I learned the value of a relationship with the holy realms. But I always felt the need to be empowered to choose my beliefs.

 

Throughout my 20s and 30s, I explored many metaphysical topics where I read the sacred texts of many religions,  attended events and  gatherings, joined organizations, and went on solitude retreats. The biggest lesson for me was the common thread through all the religions and beliefs. If I had to pick one quote to summarize the experiences and to explain what I believe, it is the words of the His Holiness the Dalai Lama 14th: "My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness."

Tibetan Buddhism

Tibetan Buddhism answered the after-life questions for me. It gave me tools to live a better life in accordance with what feels right in my heart. I am solely responsible for what I do, think, say, and feel. I am deeply grateful for the teachings that I've been given. 

Vedic Astrology

Vedic astrology is based on a science that pulls wisdom from the ancient civilizations. Calculations of the bodies of light relative to our proximity of not only our place and time of birth but to our current location of time and date creates customized permutations. Given my appreciation of Mathematics and my attraction to understanding a system of energetics, I sought to understand the science of Vedic astrology. 

Herbalism & Natural Remedies

My story into natural health began in 2002 when I was "activated" to full-time military duty as a result of the terrorist attacks the previous  year. I had already completed a full military enlistment with the US Air Force, returned to my home state of WV and was in my second year of college. But obligations of enlisting in the National Guard required me to return to active status. Because of heading to the "sand box", I was required to take several vaccinations at once. As a result, I developed medical issues that remained with me for the next two years. I visited several military doctors and was prescribed many drugs to alleviate the issues. The frustration and emotional toil with the illnesses pushed me into looking for an alternative solution. I found a clinic outside Baltimore, Maryland that staffed certified herbalists. After six months of monthly visits and following the prescribed natural methods, I found health again. That was my entry into natural medicine.​

Yoga & Ayurveda: The Science of Life

The Dance of the 5 Sacred Elements.

I think it's the most prevalent knowledge that was given to me because of how it changed my view. The science of the five elements. When one starts investigating this sacred science, pandora's box opens. The three sister sciences of Yoga, Ayurveda, and Jyotisha intrigues me and captured 12 years of my free time. I dedicated time to learning, researching, and practicing these sciences. I still do, but in a different approach now.
