Intuitive Strategic Intervention Life Coach
Brenda Burger, Ph.D, L.M.T., N.M.T. C.Y.H.C.
Thank you for visiting my website.
I want to know about you, but a little about my wild, crazy adventurous life so far.....
I was born and raised in South Africa and have been a health care practitioner/intuitive body-worker providing services such as Craniosacral therapy, neuromuscular therapy, and a number of other healing modalities, and am a certified yoga teacher, yoga health coach, author, Ayurveda Panchakarma practitioner and have a Ph.D. in Philosophy, specializing in Holistic Counseling. The topic of my Ph.D. dissertation was on the value of living an Ayurvedic/Yogi Lifestyle which I live. I am 61 years young, and I feel fantastic.
I had to learn how to release the anchors of my dysfunctional growing up story filled with harmful beliefs and patterns of thinking.
To do so, I set my sails free on the winds of my passion to explore life's deeper meanings. I've traveled extensively around the world to some of the world's most sacred places, in Tibet, India, Nepal, Mexico, United States, Bahamas, Europe, and Africa, and have had most incredible opportunities of meeting fascinating people from all walks of life around the world. I've sat at the feet of mystics, masters, and a living guru, Sadhguru. All arrows pointed back at me. God, Guru, and Self are One. I am the one I've been searching for.
I have embodied the wisdom, practice and philosophy of Yoga and Ayurveda. Ayurveda translated, means the science of Life.
My life has made me realize, even more, no matter who we are, our human similarities outweigh our differences by far. I learned our differences stem from mainly environment, diet, cultural upbringing, and the dominant thoughts of a person's mind. Otherwise, the heart of mankind is exactly the same, man and woman. We all want peace, harmony, and unconditional love. Human needs are the same worldwide: Certainty, Variety, Significance, Love and Connection, Growth and Contribution.
When I am not teaching, writing (my book will be available for sale on Amazon, December 2021), or helping my clients, I am engaged in my daily traditional yoga practice, or I'm meditating or listening to Bhakti music (Krishna Das is my favorite) reading, hiking, or walking friends dogs in nature, or preparing delicious, nutritious Ayurvedic style vegan meals, or I may be traveling to some sacred place near or far.
Something interesting about me:
One beautiful sunny summer day in the shallow waters of the Bahamas in 2005, I had a very rare and personal encounter with an Atlantic Spotted Dolphin. This encounter inspired me to invent a therapy I called, Virtual Dolphin Therapy. The therapy was featured in the Doctor's TV show, major news channels, and travel magazines around the nation and the world. I was also invited to ask the Sharks on the show Shark Tank to invest in my Virtual Dolphin Therapy treatment. ( they declined..)
The meditation/visual therapy was offered in my day spa in La Quinta, Ca., and was made popular by the locals due to its calming, meditative nature, which included a sound wave table, head phones, music, dolphin echo locations, and my friends of the Bahamas, the Atlantic Spotted Dolphins swimming in crystal clear waters projected onto a giant screen ahead.
Dolphins helped me to live in the moment, and remain conscious of my life one breath at a time.
Today, I focus my energy on you my client. I focus on helping you achieve your dreams, goals and desires, and I would be honored to meet you and learn more about and your life. Everyone has a story that would amaze us all. What is your story?
