At a young age, Cynthia had a transcendent experience that altered her view of what we call reality. It marked the beginning of a life-long spiritual inquiry in which she immersed herself in the wisdom teachings of East and West. Her work as a retreat facilitator and spiritual teacher is influenced by the teachings of Ramana Maharshi, J. Krishnamurti, and G.I. Gurdjieff.
For the last two decades she has focused her workshops and retreats on self-transformation and the foundational importance of inner silence. In the 1990’s, Cynthia worked as a photojournalist during the Balkan War, photographing wounded children in front line hospitals and traveling to refugee camps to interview war survivors. More than anything else, her experience of war demonstrated the urgency of the change that is needed in human consciousness.
Her new book, Silent Awareness: The Revelation That Changes Everything draws from her many years of facilitating retreats and from the wellspring of perennial wisdom passed down to us by mystics and sages from around the world.
Cynthia's mission is to help facilitate a shift in our awareness of how we see each other and the world; to inquire into a deeper understanding of being aware of the awareness that connects us to the matrix of life, and reveals the true purpose of our existence.
