Originally from California, I've lived in Ireland since 1991. A spiritual seeker since a young age, destiny has taken me to many teachers, many spiritual traditions. My experiences with Amida Trust as a student on the Buddhist Psychotherapy training--and with Dharmavidya in particular--made a profound impact upon me. Yoga has always been my main practice, and I've taught in my own small private studio for a long time. I recently trained in Vedic Astrology. But these things are all just part of the "tool box". My interest in working with people involves facilitating transformation, theirs as well as my own. I have three grown sons and two granddaughters, as well as a very large extended family, mostly in California. I'm feeling the passage of time very poignantly these days, so savouring every experience that comes my way. Nature, solitude, simplicity, sunshine, as well as conviviality, all bring me much joy.

Is your primary interest...

Success or failure meant nothing to them. They had the attitude: “I’m an ass, you’re an ass, so where’s the problem?”
En l'absence de Darmavidya, j'ai - en ma qualité de voisine et d'amie - le privilège de m'occuper (un peu) de Tara, la petite chatte. C'est un bonheur de la voir me faire la fête chaque fois que je me rends à Eleusis: elle s'étire, se roule sur le dos au soleil ou saute sur mes genoux. J'ignore si elle a profité de l'enseignement du maître des lieux, mais j'ai comme l'impression qu'elle me donne une belle leçon de sagesse: elle…
At the moment I am feeling very sad for the state of the planet. As I write the great forests are being consumed by fire, both the tropical forest in Brazil and the tundra forest in Russia. The great forests are the lungs of the earth. I myself have lung problems. When there are parts of the lungs that don’t work anymore one can run out of energy. It can strike suddenly. We will probably not do anything serious about climate change or wildlife extinction…
