About

I’m here to help you unfold the miracle of your life and business.

As a mentor for creative entrepreneurs, I hold open a space of possibility and freedom for you to walk your own path of entrepreneurship with confidence and strength…

So you can grow your kingdom from the inside out, standing in your sovereignty and wholeness, unmoved by the currents of greed, me-too-ism, panic, or rapaciousness that swirl around you.

Over the past 35 years, I’ve mentored thousands of people to…

  • Seal six-figure book deals
  • Quadruple monthly revenues
  • Build powerful teams and reshape company cultures
  • Melt creative resistance and finish magnificent projects
  • Completely reinvent business models — shifting from a model that exhausts you into one that nourishes and sustains you

Through decades walking the path of entrepreneurship…

I know the power and delight of holding a big, bold vision, and taking inspired action to translate it into tangible products and services that enrich people’s lives.

I know, too, how lonely the path can feel at times. How doubt can creep in, sapping strength and enthusiasm. How growth can sometimes feel sluggish or tortuous or at a scary standstill.

I help you stay rooted in your soul, in the strength of your true purposes.

To deepen your relationship with the soul of your business, so that you and your business grow together — beautiful, strong, steady, in accordance with the inner laws of your being.

You’ll quickly discover: I am not a conventional business mentor.

You won’t find 7-step procedures, boxes to tick, rigid protocols, or aggressive marketing schemes in my world.

You will find inspiration and encouragement, thoughtful, personalized suggestions, and wisdom gleaned from decades of experience with thousands of clients — many of whom hire me again and again because they find such deep value in the work that we do together.

A bit about what led me here…

I was born in Bombay — an island metropolis where immense wealth and devastating poverty co-exist in an uneasy negotiation. It’s a city of vibrant neighborhoods, encircled by an increasingly polluted harbour that opens into the Indian Ocean. A city of contradictions — the financial hub of an ancient culture that’s emerged from a colonial past to chant the friable mantras of capitalism and consumerism.

I now live on a very different island, off the misty west coast of British Columbia, in Canada.

Still surrounded by the sea, looking out to a horizon ringed by snow-capped blue mountains. Eagles and giant cedar trees shelter my home. My beloved sons and their families live nearby.

Both the home of my birth and the home of my heart have informed my life’s work, and anchored my commitment to help shape a world of peace and truth, freedom, love, and prosperity for all beings.

MY CREDENTIALS, INFLUENCES, AND SOURCES OF INSPIRATION.

  • I hold a BSc in Psychology and a BA and MFA degrees in Creative Writing.
  • I have taught Creative Writing in university programs and at writing workshops and conferences.
  • I have pioneered, created, and taught dozens of transformational programs as well as teacher trainings in energy alchemy and practical mysticism, soul development, creative manifestation, and soul-infused entrepreneurship.
  • I founded a teaching and research facility for spiritual seekers of every faith and perspective.
  • I’ve been Writer-in-Residence for CBC Radio, Canada’s national broadcaster.
  • I’ve meditated every day for over sixty years. This has profoundly shaped my life and my work.
  • I have served on national arts awards juries for the Canada Council.
  • I was Managing Editor of an award-winning literary publishing company.
  • My spiritual roots are deeply embedded in my Indian birthplace and culture. Ultimately, though, the body of work I’ve developed over the past 40+ years, and the clients and students who have so generously invited me into their lives and businesses, have been my greatest teachers. Through inner explorations, research, and the privilege of working with thousands of clients and students, I’ve pioneered a methodology for creative transformation & alchemy that serves a global community of freedom seekers.

I’d be honored to work with you, in whatever capacity best serves your needs and fits your budget at this time.

Other Things You Might Want To Know About Me

My published work includes several digital multimedia programs and e-books, a bestselling novel, two collections of poetry, as well as essays, fiction and poetry.

I am inspired by my life-long explorations in and contributions to the fields of multi-dimensional consciousness, subtle energy and co-creative manifestation. And by music, Nature, expressive arts, my family and friends, and open-hearted conversations.

I love writing, reading, poetry, the ever-changing seascapes and temperate rainforests of the Pacific Northwest. I love open-hearted conversations, meeting and learning from people whose lives are different from my own. I’m eternally curious — an adventurer and pioneer in the realms of multidimensional consciousness. I savour the spacious quiet of early mornings, and music ranging from Leonard Cohen to Bach.

I love books. I was that kid who read all the time – in bed, under the covers, with a flashlight. Walking down the street, lost in story. My library at home includes collections of poetry, memoirs, essays, reference books, fairy tales and myths from around the world. Books on the craft of writing, creativity, improvisation, play, music and movement, and experiential anatomy.

Above all, I love stories, and the art of storytelling — the making and building of creative culture through the stories we shape. We build our world, our lives and our businesses, one story at a time. We can choose to step out of those stories that bind and bedevil us, and step into ones that embody our widest horizons.
