From Me to You

Welcome To Our Hub for Transformational Arts

My name is Seth and I’m a percussionist, dj & bodyworker, and founder of this international school for embodied living practices. I am passionate about helping people awaken to the untapped energy that is available to us all.

I want to see us waking up to live the life we were born to live. I want our hearts to explode in revolution and our cries of self-love to be heard from galaxies afar! I hope to inspire you on your own ever unfolding journey of evolution by sharing this work with you.

This hub is a space to be inspired to live more fully, love more deeply and to move towards a greater vital life for all.

Join us in the invitation of events, retreats, home practice tools and teacher trainings. We are passionate about living with more presence, love and authenticity, reconnecting with our nature, deepening self-care & self-love, increasing our vitality, and nurturing a natural down-to-earth spirituality where all things live as a flow.

Come as you are – all are welcome here.

My Story

The Stress of Urban Life as a Catalyst for Change

I was working fulltime as a teacher in London, and studying an MA in Community Arts, it was too much, I was stressed and burnt out but didn’t know it, my girlfriend  left me, and I attempted suicide soon after…

Everything had changed, and I was lost, shocked and numb, a ghost in my own body. At that point I knew that I needed to discover supportive people and processes that could help me find my way back to myself. And I decided to be as proactive as possible to identify approaches to help me change my life for the better.

Now I want to support others in making the transition.

Growing up in India

One of my big inspirations is growing up in India as a child around a beautiful Osho Sethcommunity of seekers and celebrators, and I am tremendously grateful of an awareness that life can be lived with love, way beyond the ordinary.
I learned that a natural rhythm to life is possible, one where creativity, love, community is a way to thrive.

From my own personal healing journey to teacher trainings, there has been a journey, and an alchemy beyond my dreams. What has unfolded through practices for living presence and love has transformed my life and I know the seeds of life-purpose within others can be fertilised too.

Through home practice, weekly classes, weekend retreats, and teacher trainings, my work has blossomed over the years, and my dream is to have this work spread around the world, helping people find the inner pulse of love, passion and awareness as the central guide to their life. We all have one teacher within.

This virtual space is to share with you, all the ways to live our love and authenticity, for healing transformation and for also passing on the torch to the next generation of dance teachers, heart openers, alchemists and facilitators.

My mission is to share these methods – healing power of these embodied living practices with as many people as possible around the world.
