Awakened Relationship

Oneness is like the clear blue sky - everything arises, unfolds, and subsides within its all-compassionate love.


Awakened Relationship

With Christopher Hareesh Wallis

The arena of close relationships is often where we struggle most in life. We need a new paradigm, a value set that brings clarity to the ways we relate, coupled with modes of compassionate communication that help us understand each other. This groundbreaking workshop draws on key teachings of the original Tantrik tradition that provide the clarity so needed in this area of life. Previous participants in this workshop describe it as “veils of confusion being torn away” and have felt empowered and inspired to relate to others from the place of their deepest truth.
