Reflecting on a Journey of Silence and Discovery

A decade ago, my transformative three-month stint as a Karma Yogi at Sivananda Ashram Yoga Ranch laid the foundation for a profound journey I embarked upon this past January—a 10-day Vipassana silent meditation retreat. This pivotal experience has profoundly deepened my understanding of myself and significantly enriched my endeavors in transformative speaking, coaching, and social entrepreneurship.

During this period of introspection and silence, I unearthed invaluable lessons about resilience, interconnectedness, and the essence of focus—insights that continue to shape my life and professional approach. These revelations offer a distinct perspective on the power of mindfulness and the importance of self-reflection in achieving personal and professional fulfillment.
