ABOUT

My Journey

Like you, I was in search of happiness and my commitment to finding the answers within brought me to Buddhism. As I wanted to learn how to meditate and to explore Buddhism in more depth, in 2014 I entered a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Nepal. I took vows at the end of the stay and committed to studies with the Tibetan Buddhist monks, led by HH the Dalai Lama XIV.

Since taking up the practices, I’ve learnt how to love myself and others, I’ve attracted the love of my life and my life purpose became clear, bringing me much joy. But most of all, where fear and anger used to be, I now have inner peace and compassion. 

My purpose and mission is to bring the Tibetan Buddhist teachings to our modern world, to people like you. People wanting more joy, wisdom and most importantly, simple practices that can be applied to one’s day to day lifestyle, without going into the complexity of the philosophy, or having to go to a monastery!


About Me

I am a life coach and a Buddhist teacher. Through Kick Ass Muse, I provide deep transformational coaching and an online course on modern Buddhism. I believe Buddhism to be the cure for overcoming painful emotions, learning new perspectives on life and gaining wisdom for long-lasting happiness.

In 2014, I spent time in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery where I took my vows. I see my work as a bridge between the Buddhist monks and people wanting to apply Buddhism in their everyday life using a simple, practical approach.
