Our Team

We are a team of highly trained professionals integrating the contemplative psychology and meditation practices of Tibetan Buddhism and Yoga with current advances in neuropsychology and psychotherapy. We have spent decades steeped in an authentic lineage traced through Dr. Joseph Loizzo, and Professor Robert Thurman to His Holiness the Dalai Lama and have committed our lives to the Bodhisattva Vow of awakening for the benefit of others. Our mission is to empower you with timeless insights and practical skills and to support you on transformational journeys both inner and outer.
