Over the years I've developed a personal practice based on creative expression and spiritual alchemy. It is something I've developed from the time I was a small child, that has brought me through many intense trials and experiences that have awakened my kundalini and transformed the way that I relate to myself, others, and consciousness. My studies of hermetic alchemy have deepened this experience and provided a framework for further understanding. The positive effect that this has had on my life has been profound, transforming my life from one of anxiety and depression, to one of a steady state of joy and trust. I would like to offer what I've learned to others that are seeking inner freedom.
When I was a teenager, I came across a quote from the Buddha that has informed my relationship to learning ever since:
“Therefore, be ye lamps unto yourselves, be a refuge to yourselves. Hold fast to Truth as a lamp; hold fast to the truth as a refuge. Look not for a refuge in anyone beside yourselves. And those, who shall be a lamp unto themselves, shall betake themselves to no external refuge, but holding fast to the Truth as their lamp, and holding fast to the Truth as their refuge, they shall reach the topmost height.”
While eager to learn and absorb knowledge, I always felt it necessary to experience things for myself before fully believing in anything. So my study has also involved practice that has provided me with enough personal experiences to speak from a place of understanding. I'm also well aware that I really know nothing at all, and that the mystery surrounding us is infinitely deep. If there's anything I can teach, then, perhaps it is how to find your own personal magic that helps you to dissolve the barriers of conditioning between you and your own truth.

Patrons have access to my blog posts about symbolism that I am working with, as well as special meditations and teachings corresponding to my paintings.
