You are a beautiful gift to the earth and all of humanity.

This website is dedicated to your Inner Journey-– dissolving the lower, ego-self that causes so much misery and destruction, and nourishing your Divine Self o that you may walk a higher path in Truth, Simplicity, Love, and Service.

The spiritual practices found here, which include earth, air, water, fire, mind, service, and community, cleanse and purify those who use them. Through their use, the life of the physical body aligns with the life of Divine Spirit. The practices release the grip of the lower, ego mind; they release karma; they release distortions and obstructions, and they expand the consciousness for greater capacity to be a vehicle for the Divine.

At the end of 2019, I left my academic-non-profit job to pursue my avocation of teaching and healing. With philosophical roots in the Vedas (ancient India), Buddha Dharma, Christianity, and 20th century New Thought, including ACIM, the I AM Discourses, and the Law of One, I have been practicing spiritual purification and healing for over 30 years. I have been a 2nd level Reiki practitioner since 1988, 3rd degree Reiki practitioner since 2020, a Jharra practitioner since 2015, and a Pujari since 2017. Between 2013 and 2016, I developed a contemplative practice, called the WithPearls Consciousness Journeys, which I now teach and for which I am creating books and workbooks.

Prior to working as a Program Officer, my heart and inner guidance, brought me much real-world experience. I have worked as a trail-builder for the USDA Forest Service, a personal growth seminar leader, a network marketing professional (Amway! …and currently Sunrider), a truck driver for USXpress (that’s right, 18 wheels, 48 states and Canada), a fleet manager, a restaurateur, a Student Life professional at Rutgers University, and an adjunct professor.
