My Life, My Brave Work….
Every BIG life decision is usually part of a BIGGER life plan. It was the love of learning, teaching and traveling that brought me to the Lower Mainland back in 1993. Little did I know that over the next 30 years, I would become a student of my own journey on this planet.
I left India in my early 20s and began my teaching career in Africa where I lived for 11 years before finally arriving in the place where my soul feels most at home, my final resting place ~ Vancouver. Both my son and my daughter were born in Africa and were my first real teachers in life. They are my heart and soul and continue to be my daily inspiration to stay committed to my growth and evolution.
My personal life experiences during the first 10 years of living in Vancouver challenged me to stretch and grow in ways that strengthened my determination to create a life of courage, connection and fulfillment, and contributed to shaping the strong yet nurturing, spiritually anchored person I have morphed into. I will always be a humble student of life, walking my talk, living brave, and continuously choosing courage over comfort.
I believe each one of us is given several gifts to serve the world with.
Even though it took me almost five decades to fully step into claiming mine, I‘ve always been intuitive and tapped into things I can’t see but know to be true. I call this gift compassion. I call this gift empathy. And I call this gift love. This gift isn’t unique to me but it is the thread of my life and the lens for my work.
Through my ability to see people and my willingness to go first, I use my own wisdom and stories to help others extract their own truth, using powerful questions, inquiry through listening, and a safe and patient, but strong container.
