“My own experience has shown me that balanced attention to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions of wellbeing is essential, as represented in the medicine wheels of many Indigenous traditions.

My ongoing study of mindfulness practices and altered states of consciousness stems from my passion to uncover technologies that may assist us in achieving authentic healing, alleviation of suffering, true freedom and happiness.”
