Life is so short and fleeting. The greatest gift you can give to your family, friends and the world is to Awaken and express your full potential.
A Universal Dharma of Heart and Mind
We’re all looking for a path which doesn’t point to an unassailable mountaintop on high. We seek something immediate, tangible and real. A path to free us from doubt and help us find true authentic happiness. A path that doesn’t reject our humanity and the joys of life. A path of an awakened heart and illumined mind.
