i HELP PEOPLE

TRULY

ENJOY

LIFE.

HAVING POWER, MONEY, STATUS, AND STUFF IS USELESS

IF YOU STILL fEEl EMPTY ON THE INSIDE.


I help successful professionals who feel empty on the inside learn how to really have a good time, find true meaning in their life, and experience a profound sense of inner well-being through humor, curiosity, compassion, connection, and play. By “a good time,” I don’t mean vacuous, mindless, pain-numbing, soul-crushing, face-stuffing, frantic desperate crap that fills your waking hours until your death. I mean perspectives, attitudes, and relationships that uplift you until your mojo cup runs over and you have more than plenty to share with everyone around you. Brimming with joy. Sitting in peace. Dancing spontaneously. Grinning like an idiot for no reason except that you’ve seen the view I came to show you, the one you can never unsee. Come play. It’s so goddamn beautiful here.


 
 

Wow. This text is tiny. I wonder if anyone will actually read it. In middle school in Bombay, this one kid decided to test whether our English teacher was actually reading anything we wrote. So, in response to a question on a major exam, he wrote a legit beginning and ending sentence—and filled the remainder of the page with “cat dog cat dog cat dog.” He got an A on the test.

As the compliant introvert I was, I earnestly wrote a sanctimonious, boring, by-the-book answer—but envied the other kid’s fearlessness and curiosity. Ever since, my quest has been how to have more fun, know myself better, and worry less about what other people think. Embracing the fact that we’re all going to die eventually anyways liberates me to grab life hard and squeeze. I highly recommend it.

For the first time ever, someone asked me about the dish I brought to the party. I felt important! And my daughter actually enjoys my cooking now—no more ‘cheese beans’ for her!”

Thank you for being the impetus for me to be more daring in my life!
