What he brings to his deep and life changing spiritual teachings and healing work is a breadth of globally seasoned life experienced rarely encountered. He is of mixed heritage and his dual national identities and his multi lingual experience of life, coupled with his thirst for understanding humanity, the nature of fate, nature and that which many have called ‘God’, provide you with a guide and servant who can relate to you no matter your social, material, national, ethnic or religious background.
