The short story is that I hold the unique combination of being a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP)™, a licensed massage therapist (LMT) in Hawaii and California, and also have an airline transport pilot license (ATPL) from the FAA.
During a ten year period from 2006 through 2015, I was living in several countries outside of the U.S., working as a pilot and spending as much time as possible at ashrams and meditation centers. I have been trained to facilitate several group processes and retreats, including trainings from the Osho Humaniversity in the Netherlands, Osho Afroz in Greece, and at the Osho International Meditation Resort in India. Most relevant to the groups and retreats I now offer was a training I received in India called Awareness Intensive.
