At a young age, I grew curious about human existence. I found the same questions lingering at the periphery of my consciousness. “Who am I? Where did I come from? Who made this material world, and what is the purpose of this human existence?”
Also the one that drove my mother crazy was where does the sun gets its power from, is it plugged in somewhere?
As time passed and adulthood set in these questions seemed to take a back seat to working, socializing and becoming part of the London 80’s scene. This is when alcohol and drug abuse became a part of my lifestyle, and I found myself in the throes of addiction. After a number of years I found recovery through a 12 step program. I have been sober since April 1989. The two things this program did for me was show me how to stay sober and allow my soul to start searching for its origin again.
I have been able to help many people out this cycle, teaching them how to change their thinking.
Many people, from all walks of life, suffer because of their thinking. But freedom can be found. Once that happens, there is a strong foundation to build upon to realize the unlived life within.
For the past 27 years I have had a spiritual practice under the guidance of a spiritual master and have implemented the teachings into my career and life in general.

There are not enough words to describe how my life changed when I connected with the blessed soul – Peter Ishkhans. After my very first conversation with Peter, I hung up the phone thankful and exhaled with relief. I had no idea the impact he would have on my life then and I how I live it today…
Shocked with a diagnosis of breast cancer, Peter taught me how stillness and breath through meditation bring an inner awareness and connection to the heart. I know…. It is difficult to turn to stillness when when your mind is racing or your body is fighting, in fact it is typically the last thing you want to do. However, Peter reminded me those are the times when stillness and listening within are the most transformational and to use those moments. It was a “game changer” and flipped my mindset completely – I found freedom in the awareness mentally and physically. It did not remove anxiety, restless, pain and fear, it helped me use it to thrive, recharge my body and renew my inner spirit.
As I enhanced my commitment to meditation, I experienced a transformation that increased the love and acceptance I had for myself as well as other people. Peter taught me how the love within my heart, soul and mind are all interconnected to the spirit within me, and my body is just a vessel for my spirit. As I continue my practice, I love differently and have a renewed confidence, resolve and discipline within. I acknowledge the gift of spiritual power I have received, and will use it to influence and help others. Every time I am with Peter, my heart is filled beyond measure, and there are always words of wisdom that I cherish. One of my favorites as we discussed being happy he shared he is, “Happiest sitting in my own fragrance”. That is where it all begins.Angela Palmieri | VP, Brand Marketing and Film Distribution
