Every three weeks since July 2017, I’ve been going to the hospital to get a treatment called TDM1. It is a form of chemotherapy that works like a Trojan horse along with something called Herceptin and is only available to women with Her2+ breast cancer (about 20% of cases).

Recently, while awaiting an appointment with a radiation oncologist at the Holy Cross in Calgary, I began reading through a free booklet titled: “Eating Well When You Have Cancer” issued by the Canadian Cancer Society. My first thought with a strong tone of sarcasm was…hmm, this ought to be good!

Sometime after June 2012, a feature documentary film named Kumare came out. This is the story of Vikram Gandhi, a man who impersonated a fake guru and built a following of real people. If you haven’t already seen it – HIGHLY recommend doing so! It is a fascinating tale that offers numerous insights about many aspects of human and social behaviour; but what perhaps was the most striking message that came from the show, was that we are all gurus and that inspiration can be found anywhere, as long as you believe. As part of the iamtheguru community, we hope you are inspired to trust that the best guru for you, is YOU!
It was a warm May morning in the dry Portugal countryside. Over 900 beings were gathered in satsang hall as part of a silent retreat with Sri Mooji – a disciple of Papaji and a devotee of the advaita and non-dual teaching of Raman Maharshi.

At first uncertain he was speaking to me, he confirmed with a nod and I stood up to the mic.
