Lyn has a deep love and passion for supporting the growth process in others. He’s had a daily bhakti meditation and yoga practice for all his adult life, and brings that spiritual perspective to this work.
Lyn earned degrees in mathematics and statistics from California Polytechnic State University, SLO and did post graduate work at Sacrament State University and National University. He worked for 25 years as a research scientist in the field of public policy. He owned and managed a small real estate investment company for 6 years. And, for the past 15 years has worked as a therapist, coach, and guide supporting individuals and groups healing, growth, and awakening.
From childhood he was primarily interested in finding Truth. A Truth that did not change with time or circumstances. After years of exploring this with the intellect and ruthless self inquiry, he realized that to experience ultimate Truth the mind has to be transcended and Truth directly experienced. A short time after this realization, he connected with the Master Maharaj Charan Singh Ji and was initiated into the Surat Shabd Yoga or Radha Soami path and started a daily practice of sitting meditation for hours each day. After 25 years on this traditional yogic path, and a sense of connection with deep stillness and inner focus had stabilized and yet there was a sense that there was something more.
In the mid-1990s Lyn began shifting from being focused exclusively on the yogic path of transcendence to also embrace the tantric path of emersion, where the Divine is realized directly through her manifestation in the mundane. This broaden and deepen the base from which consciousness could expand.
In tantra, the bhakti component of his traditional practice has blossomed into a deep devotion to the Goddess. Lyn approaches his sharing as a way to serve the Goddess. Sessions are offered as seva, an offering to the Divine. Also, tantric shamanic work, in alignment with the instant awakening teachings of Kashmiri Shivism, has been a powerful tool in supporting a stable connection to Source Consciousness. Some of Lyn's experiences on the spiritual path are described in the paper "Spiritual Cross-Training" (on the "Resources" page).
He’s a Certified Tantra Educator through the Source School of Tantra and a graduate of the SkyDancing Tantra Facilitators Training. Some of the teachers he’s studied with and that have influenced his approach to tantra and the spiritual path include Daniel Odier (Kashmirian Tantra), David Deida (sexual yoga), Margot Anand (SkyDancing Tantra), Bodhi Avinasha (Ipsalu Tantra), Charles Muir (Source School of Tantra), Richard Miller (Kashmir Shivism), Hal Myers (Standing Wave Yoga), Rod Stryker (Pure Yoga), Mooji (Ramana Maharishi's Self Inquiry), Goenka (Vipassana), Charan Singh (Surat Shabad Yoga), Yogi Bhajan (White Tantra), [Osho (Tantra)], and Richard Moss (Radical Aliveness). Lyn also incorporates Hakomi, somatic, humanistic & transpersonal psychology, Breema, urban shamanism, astrology, and the Bach flower remedies in his work.

My work with Lyn helped me to connect with a part of myself that I didn’t know I had. I feel a new sense of wholeness!!

I was struggling with numbness and Lyn used tantra as the basis for a spiritual approach to reconnecting with my heart. He sensitively created a safe environment and set clear boundaries and expectations. He taught me techniques that are the foundation for real intimacy. His gentle manner, patience, graciousness, and caring became the first most important steps in my healing.

From our sessions together I have experienced so much progress in becoming aware of the Goddess currents flowing thru my physical and energy bodies. Lyn has a way of creating a sacred space where there is a sense of being loved, supported and guided by a higher energy.

Lyn is one of those rare men who truly serve the goddess with no self-interest. He is completely trustworthy and has the highest integrity. He lovingly and cleanly held space for me to be able to open my sexual energy again after a long shut-down, and inspired me with his insights and presence. I would whole-heartedly encourage anyone who feels interested in sexual healing to work with him.
