“Better a single day of life seeing the reality of arising and passing away than one-hundred years of existence remaining blind to it.”

The Buddha

MISSION – We, as a group, are engaged in a process of awakening on five “levels” via five “phases” (see video below for brief orientation). We are currently utilizing yoga, meditation, metaphysical map study, Sangha development and other modalities. Invited guests are welcome to attend up to two sessions without commitment. We started the first “phase” at the end of March 2020 when the corona virus lockdown began. All of of our sessions and communication are via zoom, email, phone, text and this website. We entered Phase One on January 3, 2021. When conditions change and it is doable we seek to arrange a retreat type experience as a group to catalyze the work we have engaged in.

The five levels and the five phases

My role is to be the guide. The true teacher is within. “When the student is ready the teacher will appear.”

Mission By Phase:

Phase ZERO: “To guide others in the inquiry of yoga, meditation and other meta-physical “maps of the territory” with the objective of discovering, awakening and exploring the mind that seeks The Way.”

Phase ONE: To explore the what and the why of our awakened awareness through the inquiry and practice of yoga, meditation, Dharma study and Sangha. To experience the transformation of awareness into mastery.

Phase TWO: March 21, 2021 – May 19, 2021

Phase THREE: May 20, 2021 – July 24, 2021

Phase FOUR: July 25, 2021 – September 29, 2021


“At most, someone else’s realization can act as an inspiration for others, offering guidelines for them to follow, but ultimately we each must do the work ourselves.” this quote is from The Art Of Living, Vipassana Meditation. As I was getting ready to write this assessment, I picked up this book and was just flipping through it, I am not surprised that this quote leapt out.  Michael’s years of hard work in business training and dealing with his diabetes, has lead him to many realizations.  The different healing paths converge and flow. How fortunate that he is able to share his work and discoveries with others.

My week with Michael reinforced my belief that I am a very lucky person.  I am lucky to have a second chance in life and to share with others the knowledge that I have been exposed to thanks to my good friend.  It has been a long time that I have had consecutive days such as these where I wake up and go to sleep with optimism and pride.  My relationship with my son and other family members has improved a great deal and I look forward to cultivating these special bonds.  Thanks again Michael for being who you are and sharing your wisdom.
