By the age of seventeen trauma from my childhood pulled me down into depression and an eating disorder. I hit a crisis point. I was in so much pain that I had to make a decision. Either I take my own life or I find out if it is possible to be free of this pain. I chose life.
I had no idea where to start so I went to the school library and started to read everything I could find on how to be happy. I read books saying you could train your mind to let go of suffering through meditation, so I went to my first meditation course. And I had a series of breakthroughs that totally changed my mind, healed me in profound ways and ultimately changed the course of my entire life.
And over time as I continued my journey I also started to understand that not only could I ease my suffering and stress but I could also access inner strength, a profound sense of wellbeing and incredible mental clarity and peace and I saw how how we might be able to use that strength, that human potential to change the world for the better.
That became my fascination.
I really believe that when people are unlocked from stress and struggle, when they are at their best, they naturally become a force for good and a locus of sanity, kindness and wisdom in the world.
We are living in extraordinary times right now. The challenges that we face are significant and growing, but I believe that if we can unlock the best in human potential, we can work together to solve the world’s most meaningful problems and create a more sustainable, equal, and peaceful world.
I would love to support you in staying strong as we walk this path together towards making that vision a reality.
