Before opening Bright Life I spent 20 years in the corporate and nonprofit sectors. After graduating from UCLA in 1989 with a degree in English Literature, and then NYU in 2001 with a degree in nonprofit fundraising I worked throughout the US and internationally doing management consulting, sales, business development and nonprofit fundraising.
During this chapter of my career I was able to work for some best in class organizations in high tech and the nonprofit sectors like Adobe Systems, Microsoft and Goodwill Industries International. I became intimately familiar with the inner workings of organizations large and small, and will always feel gratitude and a sense of pride to have been part of their overall success.
In 2010 I decided to begin a new professional chapter in my life by entering the entrepreneurial sector and I opened Bright Life. As owner of Bright Life I've spent the past 10 years immersed in the study and development of tools specifically designed to lessen stress and overwhelm, and increase moments of joy and inspiration. Most of these techniques originated thousands of years ago in China, India and Egypt when there was still a very strong connection between humans and Nature. Now they've become more mainstream after years of scientific research that has proven without a shadow of a doubt the emotional and physical healing benefits of these ancient traditions developed thousands of years ago.
I take great pride in having studied with some of the most accomplished teachers all over the world to learn about meditation, Feng Shui and other ancient healing modalities like flower essence, color, sound, gemstone and aroma therapies. My favorite for its efficacy is meditation, and over the years I've developed different forms of active meditation called Nature Bathing that I now teach to others in my workshops.
My hope now is simply to help anyone out there who needs a constructive outlet for their stress, anxiety or depression by introducing them to tools steeped in Nature that have allowed many, including me, to live brighter more inspired lives.
