It is truly a great pleasure for me to be able to dedicate some of my time to offer public events.
These events include speaking at conferences, leading workshops and retreats, moderating and participating in panels, and leading/organizing group gatherings (satsang).
Areas of interest range from psychology and psychotherapy to spirituality, nonduality, meditation, mindfulness, and wellness. I am particularly interested in bridging these subjects within the context of emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual well-being, as I see their interconnection vital to the unified web of human experience.
It would be my great pleasure to participate in events dedicated to furthering these explorations and dialogs. Please contact me with your details about your event.
