Azzah's Philosophy and Bio

 

We live in a world that is changing very quickly, because of this we have a great opportunity for evolution. Without self awareness there is an unconscious out-flow of energy which creates entropy. Evolution can only occur through conscious Shadow Work, bringing the subconscious into conscious awareness. Your individual and deep inner truth is totally knowable.

 

I have been facilitating individuals to break free from the “Mind Virus” programming which is conditioned responses for many decades.

 

“When we change our thinking, we change our world.”  - Florence Becker

  

Brief History and Bio:

 

My early years were growing up on a ranch in the Australian countryside. My first teachers were the Australian Aboriginal Elders, for whom I have great respect. After leaving Australia, I lived and studied in Asia for 23 years.

 

In1995 I ran through Japan with Denis Banks, a civil rights leader from the Chippewa tribe. He started the American Indian Movement with Russell Means. We ran along the coast from Sapporo in the north of Japan starting on the 21st of June, ending in Hiroshima on the 5th of August for the 50th anniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima.
