 I’ve spent my life studying healing. From the applied ecological design science of Permaculture, whose primary goal is the healing of the Earth, to the ancient Vedic sciences of Yoga, Ayurveda and Jyotisha (vedic astrology), which seek to heal the individual, I have used these wisdom traditions as my guiding light. Now I want to share the fruits of my years of study with you.

you see, i came to realize that the common thread in all of these systems is simple: you as an individual are filled with limitless potential and ability. The catch is that we are not in touch with this potential and thereby misuse it. If you are aligned with your highest potential and living a life of divine purpose then health will be yours. This health will then permeate every cell of your being. It will touch the hearts of those around you. If you are living a life contrary to your divine purpose and health - then you perpetuate suffering on various levels.

I submit to you that the lack of health and peace inside of us as well as in the environment is for no other reason than the lack of connection to our ancient wisdom traditions.

The solution? connect again.

This is really what the timeless systems of ayurveda, yoga and jyotisha are offering us. connection to who we are so that we ourselves may heal and experience more peace. connection to nature so that we may heal and enrich the world, not destroy it. This is the subject of my life and work.

I would love to work with you to support you on your journey of health, peace and vibrancy. i would love to help you connect.

yours in peace and health

What others are saying

“I first met Richard thru the practice of yoga, which I began about 6 years ago. I then learned that he studied under and continues Ayurvedic work with Dr. Lad. I did some consulting with Richard and really appreciate the insights he gave me. Richard has guided me thru some aches and pains of middle age and the ever changing body. He is very knowledgeable in the Ayurvedic science. I wish I would have found this diet and practice years ago. Healing through food is such a positive way to promote health and wellness. I strongly recommend him to friends seeking that extra help outside traditional western medical practices.”

“I decided to give an Ayurvedic diet a try after I had graduated from yoga training and heard about its benefits all throughout training. I met with Richard, via Skype. We engaged in a dialogue which consisted of questions pertaining to my general health, my day-to-day routine, and anything that may have concerned me. He took notes along the way and we discussed everything throughly. By the end of the conversation he recommended things for me to remove from or add to my diet, 3 pranayama exercises, and a herbal supplement for me to begin […] I feel the best I have ever felt in my entire life and it is only because I listened to everything Richard told and did exactly as he said. “

“Richard's Jyotish services are an absolute blessing in my life. I've had readings from many Vedic astrologers and truly find Richard's work to be unparalleled. I've been receiving readings from him for the past 2 years and have referred Richard's work to at least a dozen of my close friends - with full respect and confidence in his skill, wisdom and clarity. I've received precise expert guidance on my health, career, finances and travel, but most importantly on my spiritual initiations. I fullheartedly trust Richard, and highly recommend gifting yourself with this extraordinary experience of working with him. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Richard, for the guiding light of your soul!”

“ I am so grateful for the wisdom that Richard has shared with me from Vedic Astrology. It has helped me see the greater cycles of my life and better understand the challenges and directions that i need to focus on. I am also very grateful for the Aryuvedic consultations and the guidance that has brought light to my specific health challenges. I have been feeling so much healthier from following the principles that Richard has shared with me. I lost 15 pounds by shifting my diet, and feel infinitely lighter and more at ease in my body.”
