Cynthia has spent most of her adult life immersed in the wisdom teachings of East and West. For the last twenty-five years, she’s been facilitating retreats and workshops which explore the urgency of self-transformation and the foundational importance of inner silence.
Her articles about the spiritual quest have been published internationally and her work as a filmmaker has been recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts and the American Film Institute. She is the author of the forthcoming book Silent Awareness: The Revelation that Changes Everything.
Cynthia's worldview is informed by her experience of war. She spent four years covering the Balkan War as a photojournalist and filmmaker working with Human Rights Watch, Save the Children and Terre des Hommes, an organization based in Switzerland that helps war traumatized children. Most of her time was spent in front-line hospitals, orphanages, destroyed cities and towns and refugee centers.
Everything about that experience was intense and life-changing. Not only did it completely alter her view of the world and our place in it, the experience of war made it painfully clear to her that only a radical transformation of human consciousness can save us from ourselves.
Her mission is to help facilitate a shift in our awareness of how we see each other and the world; and to inquire into a deeper understanding of the subtle and timeless silent awareness which connects each of us to the matrix of life, and reveals the true purpose of our existence.
