In 1972 I was empowered by Rudi as a teacher of his work and installed as the teacher at his first ashram outside of Manhattan, Big Indian.

I served as the resident teacher there until Rudi's passing, then taught in NYC while still commuting to Big Indian. I remained in the Big Indian valley for over forty years, teaching and serving as a guardian of his Samadhi shrine.

I now live in El Rito, New Mexico, just north of the village of Questa, and am open to serving as a teacher to any potential aspirants to Rudi's work. I can be reached at or by phone at 845-750-8155.
