I grew up in the Ferryland lighthouse on the East Coast of Newfoundland, Canada. Growing up with my artistic parents, surrounded by the vast earth, sky and water, I was naturally opened and inspired towards meditation, dance and creativity. My parents gave me the freedom to pursue my authentic direction in life and this gave me full permission to explore my spiritual path. And this is what I pass on to my students while creating supportive community.
At twenty years of age, I traveled to India for a transformational experience in meditation, yoga and Vedant philosophy. I stayed for seventeen years, during which I discovered who I am. Returning to Newfoundland in 2000, I established The Lotus Centre, and Gerald Squires Fine Art Gallery, 52 Prescott Street, in downtown St. John’s.
I am certified as a teacher of Advanced Studies in Yoga Science, Vedant Philosophy and the Theory and Practice of Meditation from the International Meditation Institute, Kullu, HP, India.
I am also a certified Soma Yoga Instructor from the same institute.
I am certified as an Enlightenment Master, a Mind Clearer, Couples Mind Clearer, and Emotion Clearer with Lawrence Noyes Seminars, Florida, USA.
I am also a certified Thai-yoga bodywork practitioner from Chaing Mai, Thailand.
My life purpose is to empower people to live their souls’ true freedom. I know I am here to help raise awareness of the Truth of who we are, the underlying Reality of our interconnectedness.
