About Me

CURRENT MISSION

found a last-minute place in Santa Clara -- thank you CS!

ABOUT ME

I'm a entrepreneur, consultant and coach who founded and produced the Yoga Teacher Telesummit in the spring of 2011, and is now doing ongoing education and training for yoga teachers around the world. I am also working on a book about leadership, business, and yoga, and lead workshops and do both one-on-one and group work with clients.

PHILOSOPHY

Go deeper. Listen. Be authentic. But be aware and sensitive to others, including non-human others.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

In all kinds of ways - I used to host a lot more, and have surfed quite a bit, but my new place in San Francisco doesn't have any common space so I'm only up for showing people around when I have time.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

have surfed all over the pacific northwest, and in a few places in San Francisco and the Bay Area

Interests

communities of all kinds... history, psychology, sociology, philosophy, ecology all kinds of music, punk-vaudeville circuses the earth and everything that naturally happens on it, in it, around it i wish I could surf more...on water.

Music, Movies & Books

One Amazing Thing I've Done

creating a thriving community of wonderful yogis and yoginis in New York City through a studio I helped start and run...not really much involved anymore, though. (check it out at www.kulayoga.com)

Teach, Learn, Share

ecopsychology, deep ecology, history. building community. I might try cooking up a little something for ya. I like to cook. Not saying it's always delicious. But it sometimes is. And hopefully I'll keep improving my skills. Would love to learn from other gourmand CSers.
