Dan’s path towards the healing arts started partially through necessity and partially through curiosity. For him, Yoga, Ayurveda, and Vedic Astrology all came together at roughly the same period in his life because of a health crisis and then from just wanting to explore deeper into these sciences. Ultimately his goal is to share these modalities with anyone and/or everyone who has been through similar circumstances and is looking for true healing and is interested in the mechanisms that underly it all.
While Dan is a Yoga Teacher and works at an Ayurvedic Clinic, his main passion is the study of Vedic Astrology. He has been studying since 2013 and has studied under Ernst Wilhelm and Ryan Kurczak and has operated his own Astrology practice since 2015. He sees astrology as a language of nature that expresses itself constantly in our everyday lives on a very gross level as well as, and perhaps most importantly, on a subtle level. Through the process of study, contemplation, and then through the lens of direct observation he has gained a deeper appreciation of how the macrocosm and microcosm interplay and are interwoven into the fabric of life and then how this can affect each individually differently. It his belief that the deepest of healing can occur when one becomes more self-aware of the deeper underlying patterns of their behavior and of circumstances that they may find themselves in and even start to perceive the timing of these events in their life. Through this understanding then one can start to better unlock their full potential and start to work through the spiritual process of letting go of the things that hold them back so they can take steps towards leading a deeper, more fulfilling life.
