“I was born in ’79 into a family in which generations of Navy officers followed, on the one hand, and rural doctors on the other… sea and mountains! The fourth of five siblings, I arrived after an unborn baby, with exceptional sensitivity, charisma, and vulnerability. All these and other gifts marked what I share today.
I have lived in many places, explored numerous paths, learned from the greatest Masters, touched many bodies, minds, hearts and souls, descended into the dark depths and climbed great mountains. I have nurtured the Ego to release it and live in Existence, to Be Now with You. Thank you for the Gift of Sharing.”
