Q: WHAT DO YOU TEACH AT SOUL STRONG?
A :It is my joy and honor to teach two series of classes at SSY. The first one is called Soularize, and the second one, which follows the first, is called Spiritualize. I love teaching both these series because they are about knowing our true selves through meditation. We can stay in touch with who we really are through a wonderfully simple method called Resonance Meditation. And this alignment with the silent inner being brings utmost joy, love. peace and fulfillment.

Q: WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU GIGGLE?
A: I giggle at myself when I recognize my ego trying to act up and play smart Alec!! It sure tries to derail me on my journey of self- actualization! I also imagine the creator giggling lovingly at all of our collective human antics as we try to ‘awaken’ and self-realize!
