Spiritual Retreats (Advaita Vedanta, Dzogchen, Buddhist and Non-Duality) in California, Kauai, New Zealand, Mexico, and Honolulu, including a Seven Year Retreat.
There have been three major shifts in consciousness. The first one occurred while in solitary retreat on the island of Kauai in the Summer of 2000, and could be called "I AM One with All That Is." This was the beginning of a whole new life; a whole new self-identity and a whole new perception of reality. Along with huge shifts in consciousness there were also major shifts in energy -- as if the whole nervous system was being rewired. This is when intuition and being able to tune into the Soul path of people took a quantum leap.
The second massive shift in 2003 could be called "Beyond Light." Here, the sense of a separate self disappeared and there was only an Infinity of Pure Light . . . which was the only true reality. This realization was accompanied by convulsive laughing and shaking that was so intense that it seemed like the physical body was going to be shaken to death . . . but there was a knowing that everything was unfolding with sublime perfection.
The third, and perhaps most significant one, is the integration of everything with that Infinite Light. This is not only a conscious integration but continues to be hugely energetic as well and is accompanied by palpable energetic and physical phenomena.
I have been with many spiritual teachers, both well-known as well as unknown or little known exceptional spiritual masters who befriended me and took me under their wing in a very intimate, intensive and loving way.
I have a great empathy for, and understanding of, the many ways that people get side-tracked or misunderstand the path to true freedom and love.

Accessing a Other-Dimensional Power
14 years of kung fu training beginning at the age of 16 with an emphasis on internal energy, practical self-
defense and meditation. I had a keen interest in brick-breaking which was a way of accessing a power beyond
the limitations of conventional reality. I was unknowingly training myself to access a "quantum power" which is
distinct from the usual chi/qi energy of most martial arts practitioners. The ability to access this quantum realm
has been refined and expanded and is now applied to healing and spiritual awakening.
