Ambika Talwar

Long-time educator, published author and artist, Ambika Talwar is also involved in holistic energy medicine. Ambika practices polarity therapy, Vianna Stibal’s DNA healing techniques, and the Yuen Method, all of which she finds most elegant. Language matters — language of the mind, the body, and the spirit. She has combined poetic processes and holistic techniques to assist in practices of re-creating the self.

“I am a poet and that is how I approach all that I do. I see the power of language coded in us and help you to find and be in your resonance-whether it be through the poetic process or theta work or polarity — for then we choose rightly.” — Taoli-Ambika Talwar

Ambika was born in India and studied at various Indian schools, transferring every few years. She continued her university education in Southern California and teaches at a community college in Southern California. She paints and writes, has published poetry, reads at various venues in Southern California, and has made an award-winning film at a festival in Belgium.

She has published the following books—Creative Resonance-Poetry: Elegant Play, Elegant Change (2006), a book on how to develop a poetic vision and consciousness; 4 Stars & 25 Roses (2008), book of poems on/for her father; Words for Hungry Tongues (2000), collection of eros/spiritual poems; and more. Her teaching is focused on issues of peace, creativity, holism.

Talwar remains busy studying seminars and writing in order to improve herself. She insists on living a heightened and balanced life and is working on it. She prefers to not use the word “spiritual” to describe herself; it is part of what we all are, she notes.

In her life, she has inspired many to be better than they are. Many student letters are testimony to this. She notes, “What inspires a person is what they already are. I just show up to show them who they are.”

Vincenzo4Bio_100x135Vincenzo Santiglia is a born healer and a powerful teacher with a vision to bring love, peace, and wisdom to humanity. Born in Torino to Sicilian parents, he found that he could not settle into the “normal” school system; instead, his learning came from the broad spectrum of life experiences, friends and teachers among whom are Dr. Tal Schaller, Dr. Ann Wigmore, Jean Klein, Jiddu Krishnamurti. He resonates with the Indian teachings of Advaita (non-dualism) and has also worked with Global EcoVillage Network. A near-death experience in 2003 led him to studying Theta healing with Vianna Stibal of Idaho Falls. Since then it has become his mission to establish peace through theta healing all over the world, wherever he is led. He makes his home in Norway and Italy, traveling between the two countries.
