Welcome to my story. I am a spiritual teacher of the heart, bringing people back home to their true-selves, while creating space for them to experience the unconditional love that resides within us all. My soul mission is to help everyone on this planet experience as much peace, happiness, and joy as possible. As a reiki master, reiki master teacher, musician, and author, it is my intention to live a life that is full of love and bliss and help all others experience the same.

A Video Message from Darren


Through my work as an Usui Reiki Master, IET Practitioner (working with the angelic realm), and sound healer, I offer private and group healing sessions that help people to connect to the divinity within them.  Through everything I do, I create an experience where others can discover wellness of the mind, body, and soul. Wellness was not always easy for me. I used to struggle with an overactive mind, emotional turmoil, and health problems. But by way of spiritual practice, life experience, and grace, I am now happy and at peace most of the time. I share this with you so that you know it’s possible for you too!

My personal spiritual practice includes yoga, mindfulness of breath meditation, mantra meditation, and kirtan. Meditation has transformed me, bringing me out of a world of reactivity and chaos into an inner-world filled with peace and love. I feel so many can relate to this journey of awakening that has led me to know my true-self and the beautiful stillness within. I believe that through spiritual practice we can all be peaceful, loving, and full of bliss in most all of life’s happenings. I look forward to sharing in this journey with you.

Music has always been a part of me. After discovering it as a teenager, I found that it awakened my soul in a way unlike anything else. Since then, I have blended music into all areas of my journey. By discovering kirtan in my early 30’s, my eyes were opened to the opportunity to combine Bhakti yoga (the yoga of love and devotion), with my background as a singer/songwriter.  This lead me down an entirely new path. As a kirtan artist, I now blend uplifting English lyrics with sacred, ancient Sanskrit mantras to open the hearts of those I serve. 

As a conduit for spirit, I also channel messages to help uplift humanity during this great awakening. Listen to a channeled message here:
