Project Description

Yogmata Keiko Aikawa

I’ve met a lot of spiritual leaders over the last two decades. It is particularly special to encounter a female master such as Yogmata Keiko Aikawa from Japan. She is considered a Himalayan Siddha Master who is part of a lineage that traces its ancestry to Kripacharyaji of the Mahabharata (1000 B.C.). I first met her at the United Nations in 2016 when I moderated a program with my teacher/mentor Tao Porchon-Lynch (see pictures) and then we participated in a program with her in Bangalore, India in 2017. She gave me a special blessing and when she comes to New York, her aide will often reach out to me to check my availability to meet. It is a pleasure to be in the circle of such light!
