The focus of my work is on our shared aspirations to live in wholeness and peace, and on our collective search for meaning and inner freedom. My programs explore our spirituality, the conditioned mind, and the human potential to live life fully and cooperatively with each other and with nature. Please look in the Programs tab for more information.

I also lead meditative retreats to help participants relax into a space of stillness and inner calm. The aim is to facilitate the capacity to listen to one's own inner wisdom; to observe the thought process in the mind; to appreciate the wonders of the natural world; and to feel inwardly a sense of gratitude for the beauty which dwells within and without.

Much of my work is informed by my experience of war and the damage it does to children. During the Balkan War, I traveled with humanitarian organizations as a photographer and documentary filmmaker, visiting front line hospitals and orphanages. The experience completely altered my way of seeing the world, and helped me understand that only a transformation of human consciousness can save us from ourselves.

My mission is to contribute what I can to the radical, but ancient axiom that we are all One.
