Creating a world in which we see and bring out the best in each other
I call myself the Transformational Poet because I believe poetry can touch the heart and transform lives. I use poetry as a medium to bring out the inner qualities of a person and to help people find their own path in life, which is the life the person is meant to live and not the life crafted out of obligations from the rest of the world. I want to release the incredible potential that is hidden inside people and awaken them to the wellspring of resources for living life fully. Ultimately I want to create a world where people see and bring out the best in each other.
As a poet, I have been influenced by contemporary poets David Whyte and Mary Oliver, and by the mystic poets, Rumi and Hafez. My poetry also integrates my work as a life-coach and trainer in the fields of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and hypnotherapy, which study how language impacts experience and provide tools for helping people overcome challenges and achieve their dreams.
