I collaborate with conscious, creative entrepreneurs and leaders to bring your deepest, most profound vision for your business, and our world, to life. Together, we infuse the world of your business with those qualities — integrity and wholeness, generosity, kindness, prosperity and creative freedom — that shape the world in which you want to live.
From books and other published materials, to intimate mentoring partnerships, I offer diverse pathways to clarify your most radiant vision for your business and bring it to life, drawing on your own genius and all the multidimensional potentials you and your business possess.
Together, we create a field of heightened power, potentiality and freedom for you to grow your business your way — in harmony with your vision and values, in partnership with your soul, and in service to the Sacred.
Our creative partnership amplifies your genius & the true potential of your business so both flourish, beautifully.
Together, we craft the world of your business to nurture and protect its gifts and yours. You and your business become beacons of inspiration, radiant prosperity, joy and freedom. With the soul of your business, you create a world that nourishes each person whom your business serves and blesses.
The path to vibrant, holistic success is a path of creative service — illumined by your vision and values, your deepest desires for yourself and your world, and by your soul’s purposes and the purposes of your business.
As you and your business grow into the organic pattern of your being, you will experience the depth and breadth of your own wisdom, power, beauty and creative radiance. You’ll build a world, in your business, that’s designed to fully support you and your gifts, and those of everyone involved in your business’s ecology.
I am a seer and wisdom-keeper who brings to our partnership decades of experience with the Devas, and with thousands of clients — many of whom work with me for years because they find such deep value in our collaboration.
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.
Other things you might want to know about me
My published work includes several digital multimedia programs, my award-winning book, To Be Soul, Do Soul, my best-selling book, The World of Your Business Playbook, a novel, two collections of poetry, as well as essays, fiction and poetry.
I am inspired by my life-long explorations in and contributions to soul-sourced entrepreneurship; the relational field of interdependence in which we are all embedded, and to which we owe our lives; the radiant creative possibilities that emerge from multi-dimensional consciousness, subtle energy and generative co-creation. And by cross-cultural pollination, music, Nature, the arts, love in all its multitude of forms, and conversations that meander through wildly varied terrains.
I love writing, reading, poetry, the ever-changing seascapes and temperate rainforests of the Pacific Northwest. I love exploring different cultures, cuisines, world views; connecting with people whose lives & experiences offer unique perspectives on the art of being human, on the art of being. I’m eternally curious — an adventurer and pioneer in inner realms, a lifelong learner. I savour the spacious quiet of early mornings, and music ranging from Leonard Cohen to Bach to the mournful beauty of fado.
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, deep ecology, embodied spirituality, 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.

- 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.

Through inner explorations, research, and the privilege of working with thousands of clients and students, I’ve pioneered a methodology for creative transformation & soul business alchemy that serves a global community of freedom seekers.
- In 2023, I sold The Deva Alchemy Academy along with the programs I created and taught for many years.
My life’s work is offering practical ways to bring our most radiant visions down to earth, and gift them to our world as powerful agents of the Sacred in our own communities.
I’d be honored to work with you.
I champion and mentor practical visionaries — those story makers and culture makers who are actively engaged in creating a world that nurtures and supports all life. Those of you who share your art, your love, and your genius in service to the Sacred.
If this is you, I look forward to welcoming you into the world of my business.
My business and I live and work on the unceded traditional territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation. Our gratitude to them is boundless. We express our reverence and thanks through spiritual practices of healing and repair, and a deep commitment to reparations.
