Welcome to Vedic Tools.

It is my intention that you find useful information about Jyotisha and related subjects, and about how I generally work with clients and students and you………..

I periodically write on Jyotisha, Vaastu, Palmistry, and related subjects, and eventually get them on this site under the blog or articles sections. I’ve also started to build a list of Other Resources, which will take you to very useful resources in Ayurveda, Samskrta, and other topics of interest to both lifestyle and spiritual seekers.  I would welcome your comments on material you would like to see – it will help prompt me to action if I know the resource is going to be used.

The LEARN section lists workshops coming up and other opportunities for study with me, including personal (or group) study, via skype and intensives at my home. There is also a listing of where and when I will be teaching in upcoming months.

The newsletter that I send out every month or two can be found on the right side bar. And you can sign up for the newsletter by submitting your email to the list.

I try to be on Facebook, so you can find me there at marga jaynya Mahan, but email is still the best way to reach me, as I travel often and in places that do not always have robust internet. I value connection with anyone who finds this site, so please do be in touch. It may take a little while, but I will get back to you!

Thanks for being here.

Om Sri Ganeshaya Namaha!

A bit more about myself…

I have had the great good fortune to study in the Indian traditions for the past 25 years. Like many people of a certain age in North America I was introduced to eastern traditions through the TM movement, and I am always grateful to my first teacher, the embodiment of generosity, Annie Holtby, for providing the starting point for my engagement in these subjects.

I began to study Ayurveda for my own healing in the mid 1980s, when I first met Dr. Robert Svoboda, who has been doctor, mentor, business partner, and friend through these past decades. By 1992 had seen a Jyotishi in my home town of Vancouver. I was taken by a friend somewhat unwillingly, and it must be said that I went with significant skepticism. After one particularly precise prediction came true on the very day it was to occur, I began to pay attention, and when within a very short time another Jyotishi came to Vancouver, I decided to willingly offer the attention. With that I met the esteemed Hart de Fouw, whose student I became almost immediately.

I have been blessed indeed to have access to the vast accomplishment, deep compassion and continued patience of this man, who stands as one of the true giants in Jyotisha and related subjects.

Over the 20 years I have studied with Hart, he has provided guidance and keys to astrology, astronomy, palmistry, Samkhya and Vedanta, the tantras, Vaastu Shastra, and has supported the study of Samskrta and Ayurveda.

In addition to my ongoing studies and practice in Jyotisha and Vaastu, I teach at various locations in North and Central America.
