It’s a sunny, serene Thanksgiving morning in the mountains.  A little more than a year has passed and this incredible place we now call home has inspired our days.  Many highs and lows were experienced throughout the year, but the conceptual seeds we planted are beginning to take root.  In this season of letting go, we want to take the opportunity to express our gratitude  for our good fortune which includes family and friends near and far.  Much love to all on this day and each day forward.


Hello Everyone,

The next Explorations in TAO series will begin on Sunday, Nov. 5th. and I am inviting all ongoing students who have ventured into previous series to continue their explorations into the inner workings of mind and body.  Also invited, is anyone interested in expanding their capacity to be able to feel the subtleties of consciousness and the physical realm merging together.

This series will include a dialog with everyone about integrating these practices and concepts into daily life and ordinary circumstances.  We’ll discuss how to avoid being consumed by stressors throughout the day, which can cause us to sink into a space where expression, processing and feeling can be diminished to the point of incapacity. 

In each class I review previous material and all registered students have access to previously recorded classes.  Please join us in this adventure of inner exploration and outer expression.

Classes will be live streamed.  Cost:  All 6 classes prepaid -$60.00 or each Individual class – $12.00 Recordings for the six class series will be available for $36.00 if unable to attend the online classes. 

To Register: call:  954-815-1235
Payments can be made through Paypal, checks or credit cards
  (Visa, Mastercard, Discover & Amex accepted) Instructions for online participation in the class will be sent when registration is completed

Good Journey, Frank

In my youth, I studied martial arts for a little over 15 years.  This was a very Yang natured movement art which tore my body up quite often.  Back then I would do Hatha Yoga postures to calm my energy down.  It wasn’t until I met the Ni family in the 1980’s, that I would […]
