From mystic to skeptic

colonized by beliefs
that are not.

Hi there and welcome!
I am a writer, speaker, documentary filmmaker, life coach the President of Centre for Inquiry Vanouver and a guest host for Equal Time for Freethought, a skeptic radio show on WBAI New York 99.5FM.
I am best known as a former popular spiritual leader who has renounced her position after realizing how that route was encouraging gullibility and causing psychological harm.
Now I speak publicly about my story and on the importance of thinking rationally in a bid to bring an understanding of the patterns of self-deception and exploitation.
Assisting people in making the transition from believer to thinker has become my main interest. I have also recently discovered Street Epistemology and am excited to dive deeper into it.
I am currently making a feature documentary film based off of my popular Bali Blog journal series, titled 'Memoirs of a Former Mystic: Caution too much love and light will make you sick!'.
It will provide a unique and playful insight about my personal journey, through which you will discover what led me from being a shy girl to a charismatic public figure on the spiritual scene. But most of all, you will find out about the challenges I had to face and the realizations that were required to successfully overcome and question critically the beliefs that were once so near and dear to me.
In 2013, I co-founded a project that provides a platform for critical thinking, metacognition and memetics applied to education and personal analysis.
Feel free to contact me if you would like to do one on one coaching with me on the disillusionment process.
I also am available to speak at events and interviews.
If you would like to know more about me, my work and journey, i'll be more than glad to answer any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.
