Lucas Harper is an RYT Holistic Therapist and a “Man of the Roots” linking the disciplines of both Yoga and shamanism. His path led him to a life changing moment of integration in 2010 while employing the phenomenal ways of the ancient west to induce a “mystical experience” of Self realization. Simultaneously utilizing the supreme articulation of ancient eastern philosophies & the mindful awareness practices of Yoga he was able to demystify and understand the reality of that experience and vividly perceive the true reality of life and all existence. Since then he has been able to remain with this awareness on the ever evolving path of living as the Self "actualized".
With a background in the arts the native Californian is skilled in thinking in a way that challenges the mind to re-evaluate beliefs & possibilities and open up to expansive experiences. Having studied various modalities, and in combination with a musical talent, Lucas leads integrative Jnana practices, teaches the science of meditation, and leads sound journeys & dynamic breathwork practices to help explore the Self beyond the body and mind.
Lucas' primary goal is to help people see beyond the “spiritual concepts” and directly observe the "reality of our existence”. Teaching from deeply integrated wisdom he is able to guide classes in a highly comprehensive manner offering profound knowledge, clarity and compassion. With a loving heart he has inspired and empowered many aspirants on the path to Self-realization and Self-actualization.
