W elcome to my passion, my obsession, my path of truth and wholeness. Since I can remember, my purpose in life has been to learn on the deepest level, and to share the knowledge and methods that will truly help others heal, transform, and be their optimal self in this difficult life.
Through meeting many great Buddhist and Western masters, I have been fortunate in unearthing the greatest secrets of human psychology, cutting through the mountains of misinformation and blind half truths that obstruct our path. In particular, the 5 Elements, has been a guiding principle. The idea of the Pentad Mind is one of the longest standing ideas in human history, tracing back to the first written records some 5,000 years ago, and becoming the center of European medicine and psychology for two thousand years. Through translating ancient Tibetan texts and integrating with modern physiology, psychology, neuroscience, physics and Elemental knowledge scattered through time and culture they are now accessible for a modern audience.
I have had a lifelong passion to “crack the code” on human nature, seeking to understand what makes people tic, what goes wrong and how to make it right. This has led me on a quest of forty years serving others as a holistic doctor, and three decades of traveling the world, gleaning secrets of the world’s great spiritual traditions with various teachers and masters. A knowledge the Tibetan language helped me to delve deeply into ancient texts, and completing a 3-year, 3-month meditation retreat allowed me to pluck the essence from that tradition.
Through these trainings, life experiences and the laboratory of work with patients over the decades, the pieces fell into place in 2000, and the true template of our human mind and heart became clear. Refining and verifying these exciting ideas over the last fifteen years, it became clear that the Human Code and the Five Ways of Power could offer a real solution to the widespread confusion and suffering that now consumes so many people’s lives.
Today I am dedicated to bringing these ancient truths to a modern audience, with a fresh and dynamic Western perspective. These are practical tools, a real hope in a sea of false promises, and a true path to human freedom and inner power.
