Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you charge money for your spiritual teachings?

My teachings and guidance are the culmination of over 20 years of dedicated learning, practice, and experience, aimed at providing you with personalized, meaningful support on your spiritual journey.

The financial aspect is an exchange that honours the value of the teachings provided, the personal support received, and the time invested in delivering them. Charging for these services enables me to manage the practicalities of living and to dedicate my time fully to this work, ensuring that I can continue to offer in-depth, focused, and high-quality guidance.

Additionally, while some spiritual teachers may receive support from various sources such as charities, grants, individual donations, crowdfunding platforms, sponsorships, retreat centres, workshops, seminars, book sales, or merchandising, I currently rely solely on the fees from my services.

Why do you have a cancellation & refund policy?

Sometimes, I spend significant time assisting clients in setting up a virtual connection for a virtual session, and then they don’t show up on time or don’t show up to the virtual session at all, with no explanation or forewarning. Additionally, there are times when I spend considerable time traveling to meet clients in person, only for them not to show up on time or not show up at all.

I invest significant time and effort in these preparations, including extensive communication via phone or email beforehand to gather details and set up the session. The refund policy reflects and respects my time and effort, ensuring that I can continue to offer dedicated and high-quality guidance to all my clients.

Why should I pay for your spiritual teachings when there are free resources available online and in books?

  • Personalisation: My teachings are tailored to your individual journey, offering personalised guidance that addresses your unique challenges and aspirations. Unlike generic content, my sessions are designed to resonate with your personal experiences and goals.
  • Interaction and Feedback: Engaging with a live teacher allows for real-time interaction and feedback, facilitating a dynamic learning experience that adapts to your evolving needs. This interaction enables you to ask questions, seek clarification, and delve deeper into topics of interest in ways that pre-recorded or written materials cannot offer.
  • Accountability and Motivation: Working directly with a teacher provides a level of accountability and motivation that is difficult to replicate on your own. I’m here to encourage you, keep you on track, and help you navigate the ups and downs of your spiritual journey.
  • Depth and Focus: My teachings draw upon over 20 years of dedicated study and practice, offering depth and focus that can help you cut through the noise and confusion that often accompany self-guided learning. This focused guidance can accelerate your growth and help you achieve deeper insights.

In essence, while free resources are valuable for broad exploration, my services offer a depth of engagement, personalisation, and support that is designed to facilitate profound personal growth and understanding.

Can I take a photo or record an audio or video of you during the sessions?

I value maintaining control over how and where my image or voice is used. You are welcome to take a photo with me after the session concludes; I am happy to join you for a picture to commemorate our meeting. ❤️

I do not consent to any recordings of me or the session itself, and kindly request that you refrain from recording any video or audio during our sessions. The sessions are meant to be private and personal experiences. Thank you for respecting this boundary.

Do I need to wear specific clothing for meditation, and will I have to sit on the floor cross-legged?

No specific clothing is required for our meditation sessions; casual attire that you find comfortable is perfectly fine. Both the teaching and meditation portions of our sessions are conducted while seated in chairs. This ensures everyone can participate comfortably and focus on their meditation practice without physical strain.

Do I need to do anything to prepare for a session?

Your spiritual journey is unique, and preparing for our sessions together can enhance your experience. Here’s what you can do to prepare, depending on the type of session you’ve chosen:

Virtual Session (online)

  • Setting up and testing the virtual connection (video and audio) with me must be completed at least one day before the session begins, so that all technical issues can be sorted beforehand, and the session can start and finish on time
  • Choose a quiet, private space where you won’t be interrupted
  • Ensure your device is charged or plugged in, and your internet connection is stable
  • Have headphones or a headset ready for clearer audio, if needed.

Public Spaces (Parks, Rivers, etc.)

  • I will bring folding chairs and the session will be held in a shaded area
    Dress comfortably and according to the weather
  • Bring any personal items you may need, like water, a hat, or sunscreen
  • Arrive a few minutes early to settle in and embrace the natural surroundings

Home Comforts

  • Ensure a quiet, comfortable space is available in your home where we won’t be disturbed
  • Consider any elements that might enhance the session, such as soft lighting, comfortable seating, or minimal distractions
  • Have any personal items or notes you wish to discuss within reach

Across All Settings

  • Please switch your mobile phones to silent to avoid interruptions
  • Reflect on what you wish to achieve or discuss during our session
  • Feel free to bring any questions or topics that you would like to explore
  • Most importantly, come with an open mind and heart, ready to engage in your spiritual journey
  • Remember, these sessions are for you, and being prepared can help create a more fulfilling and effective experience. If you have any specific questions or concerns about preparing for our session, please do not hesitate to contact me

Why do I need to attend an initial session before I can attend a follow-up-session?

The initial session is designed to introduce essential wisdom teachings and meditation techniques that can profoundly impact your life. By learning these practices, you’ll be equipped to achieve deep peace and significantly alleviate emotional distress, assuming you maintain a consistent spiritual practice. For many people, this foundational session is all that’s needed.

Follow-up sessions are available for those seeking spiritual counseling, wishing to deepen their spiritual journey, or wanting to increase the effectiveness of their meditation practice. These sessions are designed to build upon the principles and techniques introduced in the initial session, and I will sometimes refer to teachings from the initial session in the follow-up-session.

The initial session is an important first step.

Why don’t you have a dedicated space for your sessions?

The personalised nature of my sessions, which usually involve just one or two clients at a time, does not justify the expense of leasing or renting a dedicated space on a long-term basis. Moreover, I’ve found that my clients often prefer the convenience and comfort of having sessions in their own homes or in a chosen public space.

How many people can attend a session?

Currently, the maximum number of participants for both initial and follow-up sessions is limited to two, to accommodate for couples and friends. This ensures that each individual receives ample personal attention, making the sessions more impactful and fostering effective learning.

Can I take a photo or record an audio or video of you during the sessions?

I value maintaining control over how and where my image or voice is used. You are welcome to take a photo with me after the session concludes; I am happy to join you for a picture to commemorate our meeting. ❤️

I do not consent to any recordings of me or the session itself, and kindly request that you refrain from recording any video or audio during our sessions. The sessions are meant to be private and personal experiences. Thank you for respecting this boundary.

Why aren’t you on social media?

I recognise the vast potential of social media in connecting people and sharing ideas. However, my approach to teaching and communication is more aligned with traditional, direct methods rather than the fast-paced, content-driven nature of social media platforms. I believe in the value of presence, depth, and personal connection, which I find is best nurtured outside the realms of social media.

Furthermore, creating and maintaining a meaningful presence on social media requires a high level of engagement and content generation that does not resonate with my personal and professional priorities. My teaching and practice are not about building a following or a brand, but about offering a space of learning and growth for those who seek it.

Update: I recently created Facebook and Instagram accounts. I will not be active on them, and will only use them to occasionally post spiritual art.

Can I pay by cash?

For ease of financial management and tax purposes, I only accept electronic payments. Cash payments are not accepted to ensure accurate transaction tracking.

Do you offer Tarot readings, Reiki, palm readings, or psychic/clairvoyant services, including spirit communication?

My expertise is in spiritual teaching. I do not offer Tarot or palm readings, Reiki, nor do I provide psychic, clairvoyant or spirit communication services. My focus is on guiding individuals through their spiritual journey, primarily through the means of spiritual teaching and meditation practice.

Did you create the quizzes and games in the “Spiritual Playground” yourself?

Yes, I designed and developed all the quizzes and games in the “Spiritual Playground” section myself. Even though they may appear simple in nature, each one took me several days to conceive and complete. Writing all the code for them, which by far took up most of my time, was a labour of love.
