For as long as I can remember, I've been insanely curious about how the world works. This curiosity led me to study economics, yoga, political science, health, theology, botany, psychology and more.

And I've always had a strong nurturing drive to help people. 

At first, I channeled this nurturing energy into studying human rights and political science. As I got older, I began to understand that my strong creative drive couldn't be fully leveraged working a traditional 8-5 job. I’d had a pretty unusual childhood, the corporate world and traditional career trajectories would never suit me.

I finally made peace with the fact that I didn't quite fit into the mainstream and that it was ok: I wasn’t a freak and I wasn’t stupid. I could finally see my varied interests, unusual life path, nurturing and investigative qualities as leverage to support a unique and successful path forward.

I believe that to change the world, bring balance to our planet and thrive as a diverse ecosystem, we must address the whole of the individual first.

My one-on-one sessions blend ancient perennial mystical philosophies with emergent wisdom from neuroscience, somatic psychology, Ayurveda and bioscience.

I'm a certified holistic health counselor, ayurvedic and yogic practitioner. I love working on creative projects and consulting. When I’m not working on Shakti School, I’m geeking out over all things science, psychology and health with friends and clients.

 

"I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world.
I may not complete this last one
but I give myself to it.

I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I’ve been circling for thousands of years
and I still don’t know: am I a falcon,
a storm, or a great song?"

Rainer Maria Rilke, Book of Hours, I 2

Like many do, I came to studying and teaching these ancient practices through my own personal journey of self-inquiry and healing. I had an inherent fascination with the occult and mysticism as a kid. Growing up, my mom shared with me her love of Celtic pagan traditions and Eastern meditation and spirituality. These early experiences shaped my journey as a seeker and a healer, an artist and a scientist.

After a tumultuous and traumatic childhood, I found myself grieving in college. 

I was consumed with anxiety and depression. I was numbing myself. I had a case of post-traumatic stress disorder, and was stuck in a cycle of depression: I knew what was holding me back in so many ways, but further engaged in self-sabotaging behavior because I didn't know how to get past the samskaras (Sanskrit “psychological imprint, habits, neural pathways”) that had developed.

At the age of 23, I stepped away from the traditional path of career, weaned myself off all the psychiatric drugs I had been prescribed, and left the big city life to heal. I found a treasure of wisdom and potent medicine in yoga, meditation and Ayurveda/functional medicine. For the first time in my life, I felt that I had come home to myself.

I came to understand these fundamental truths regarding wellness:

𓁿 First, templates for wellness and disease begins on day one of life. How we live, eat, sleep, and process life experiences, all contribute, not only to our emotional/mental body, but to the health of our physical body as well. Whereas mainstream healthcare systems catch pathologies when they are already in their late stages and thus manifesting physically/mentally as illness, Eastern approaches instead strive to address health and well-being before pathologies develop, and mitigates disease by taking the entire being (emotional, mental, physical, energetic) into account;

𓁿 Second, we have the ability to change and balance our own physiology, including what mainstream medicine believes to be involuntary functions of our organism, through practices such as breathing, intentional movement & touch, nutrition, sound & music, lifestyle, meditation and functional medicine;

𓁿 Third, contemplative practices, self-inquiry, yoga, creativity, etc., give us the resources to change others and ourselves by understanding our experiences and rediscovering our integration with one another. One definition of yoga that I've always loved is that yoga is the act of "making the unconscious conscious";

𓁿 Fourth, our capacity to hurt others is balanced by our capacity to heal one another. Positive relationships and community are central to reinforcing well-being. 

My love for these methodologies emanates from a deep center of gratitude for the stabilizing and healing force it has been in my life.

I’m so proud and deeply grateful to earn a living doing this. I care deeply about education for all. I hope that I’ll be able to make the vast majority of my knowledge and these wisdom traditions available for free, or at least be super affordable. I truly believe that knowledge is health and freedom. I just need a friend to, like, come to my house everyday and force me to write some more.

I don’t have all the answers. Much like the rest of humanity, I make mistakes, experience self-doubt and feel unworthy at times.

My commitment with this work is to consciously spread an emphasis toward intentional living, creativity and healing by sharing with you what I’ve learned and what I’m living, so you can live the healthiest, most expressive and joyful life.

I hope we'll have the opportunity to practice and learn together, I am eager to know your story.

with love,

Amaury
