Rene’s journey has led him to immerse himself in the teachings and practices of meditation, Ayurveda, and Vedanta through teachers such as Deepak Chopra, Jean Klein, Francis Lucille, Rupert Spira, Robert Adams, Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta Maharaj and many other luminaries.
He’s also a certified Sivananda Yoga Teacher. He attended this month long training in 2012 at the Sivananda Ashram in Grass Valley, CA.
Of the essence of these years Rene writes,
“The greatest discovery in life is that our essential nature is undisturbed love, all experience, thoughts, feelings, sensations and perceptions is something we are aware of, they come and they go, they happen in ‘your’ awareness, in you as you.
To experience this and abide in this is freedom. This is where and when the drama of life and suffering ends, you rest in your eternal nature which is unconditional love.”
