By far the most profound learning and transformation in my life has come from my spiritual lineage. Since 1998 I have been a student of Doug Duncan and Catherine Pawasarat, founding teachers of Clear Sky Retreat Center in BC, Canada.

A brief story of my journey with these teachers:

After meeting my teachers in Kyoto, Japan, I lived at and managed the meditation center there for many years while serving simultaneously on Clear Sky’s board of directors.

After emigrating to Canada in 2011, I’m now Chair of the Board and Director of Business Development. I’m also passionate to be teaching the much-ignored principles of nurturing the factors – like honoring your space, structure, and communication – that create the conditions we need to wake up more in daily life. I see how I learned and embodied these principles in my different roles at Clear Sky, as the center went from self-starter to second-stage growth. This has been what I call the hands-on way of doing an MBA with a spiritual bottom line!
