I live in the Ananda Community in Lynnwood, WA with my wife Padma. We are the spiritual directors of the Ananda work in Washington State, appointed by Swami Kriyananda (direct disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda and founder of the worldwide work and communities of Ananda) in 1993. We had lived at the original Ananda Village community and raised our two children there before coming to the Seattle area.
I teach meditation, raja yoga, kriya yoga and give kriya initiation to eligible students. Together my wife I and guide the activities of Ananda members through such public services as East West Bookshop of Seattle; Ananda Farms of Camano Island, Living Wisdom School of Lynnwood, Ananda Community in Lynnwood, and Living Wisdom Gift and Thrift of Shoreline.
