Steven is a philosopher, therapist and coach who has had a lifelong interest in the theory and practice of personal transformation. Having studied and taught traditional Western Philosophy, he trained in and practiced psychoanalytic psychotherapy in order to put his knowledge into practice and to teach others to do the same. The question of “what is the good life?” has been haunting him from early youth up to the present day. His understanding of the holographic nature of the universe and mind has revealed the simple but profound truth that the whole is implicit in each and every one of its parts. This means that how we do anything is how we do everything. By adopting the age old practice of mindfulness and working in a group of compassionate people, Steve proposes to directly and indirectly help a million people attain the level of transformative awareness flourish and lead the good life.
