Who are you?
I am a mountain. Once you know me, you will always know where to find me. I will always be there for you.
The meaning of life is to find your gift; the purpose of life is to give it away. My gift is that I am a mountain. My purpose is to help you climb.
If you decide to climb me, I will help you. I will open my heart to you and show you the way of the mountain. With every step you take, I will lift you up, higher and higher. I will help you raise yourself beyond your highest aspirations.
What is required to be a good teacher?
I am not a teacher, I am a learner. Learning is what makes my heart sing.
Learning is an art. Integrating what we learn is as important as the knowledge itself.
I don’t teach people, I invite them to come learn with me. I share with them everything that I have learned, I explain how I have learned it, and I provide them with the keys to understanding and assimilating any piece of information.
The secret to being successful at anything is to do it from the heart.
What is your biggest source of inspiration?
Nature. I have learned everything from Nature from Art to Spirituality, including how to love, live, eat, and be grateful.
Nature is a Sacred Garden of Knowledge. Nature works in a symbiotic way where everything cooperates, shares, and helps each other. I have designed my whole life around that principle. Plants grows because they feel loved, so do you, and so do your art skills. Out of gratefulness, I openly share everything that I have learned by creating a symbiotic environment where people can feel the love that they need in order to grow. I provide my learning group an environment that nurtures their art skills into fruiting.
What is the most useful thing that you have learned in your career?
The principle of Unity with Variety. It is the master key to unlocking all the mysteries and secrets of Nature.
If you could go back in time and give advice to the younger version of yourself, what would it be?
Follow your heart. The mind thinks but the heart knows.
Some of your students say that you are “Magical.” What does that mean?
I believe that life is a magical fairytale. The thing with beliefs is that whether they are true or not is irrelevant, because the effect they have on you is real.
Here is my guide to living a magical life:
-Follow your heart
-Eat magical food
-Take Spiritual Baths
-Be Thankful (Pray)
-Tell someone that you love them
