Scott is a truly gifted and inspiring educator, counselor, and facilitator. His deep wisdom is always conveyed in ways that people can quickly grasp and put into practice. I have witnessed this countless times when Scott has guest lectured to my graduate global business students of every age from around the world. I savor every opportunity to learn from him. He is just that awesome on every level.

"I originally came to Scott for shamanic counseling ten years ago. He is incredibly intuitive and insightful. He has helped me and guided me in understanding and healing from trauma as well as navigating the every day trials that life visits upon us. Scott provides a multidisciplinary approach to his guiding process having studied extensively in Ayurveda, Vedic Astrology, Vastu Shastra, Yoga Asana and Pranayama, Vedic Chanting, Panchaprana Energy Healing, Meditation, and Michael Harner’s Core Shamanism. Scott’s repertoire is extremely complimentary. An astrology consultation could result in Ayurvedic, Asana, and Pranayama recommendations. His work as a shaman has been extremely helpful to me. It has provided insight into emotional states as well as providing ongoing guidance during episodes of transition and emergent life events. I highly recommend everyone consult with Scott at least once in their life.

Teacher Scott really helped me with my back problem and me with a daily 15 minute yoga program. It's been a week and my back is feeling much better. Thanks, Teacher Scott!

Scott is a Sanskrit genius. He was by far the number one student in the first year Sanskrit at UC Berkeley, one of the best programs in the United States.... What impressed me beyond his ability to master the grammar and vocabulary was his persistent attitude towards helping the other students in the class learn the language too. His generous spirit has been a blessing and his friendship of special value.

Scott has performed Pranchaprana energy healing twice on different parts of my body. The first was to help relieve lower back pain and the second was to ease the flow and tight muscle tension resulting from hand surgery. In both instances a noticeable improvement was made, an opening to recovery that hadn’t existed before. In the case of my hand, stiffened due to having been in a cast for three weeks, with surgery to cut tendons in one finger, the effect of the energy healing was to reduce tingling, relax the muscles, and make the bending exercises that much easier. I’m not suggesting that one minute my muscles were tight and almost frozen, and the next they were free. The single session energy healing allowed easing of the muscle tension and lessened the pain of the flexing.

Scott is a dedicated Jyotishi with high regard for both his clients as well as for the traditions and lineage of his craft. What I completely appreciate about Scott (beyond his predictive accuracy and insight), is his relentless and full-time dedication to continual learning. Scott is NOT a some part-time fortune teller with Vedic astrology as a hobby or just another trick in the bag. He has given himself to a life path of Vedic learning with enormous heart, and a profound commitment to making a difference with his clients. Every time I leave a consultation with Scott, I feel my instincts about my life are further validated. What's more, I leave with strategies to confront current challenges that are aligned with my journey and values.

Scott used to work with the wrestling team I coached at Stuart Hall High School, giving bi-weekly yoga sessions to the kids. Injuries went way down year over year and the kids loved working with him! Can't recommend Scott highly enough.

[Teacher Scott] used energy and placed it in the area of my foot that was in pain. I could feel the presence of some energy during the process and before this I could barely stand, but after I was able to walk around slowly with minimal pain.
