(Avatar of this age; destroyer of ignorance, bringer of light )…
… is Martin Neufeld`s spiritual name given to him by his Tantric guru Swami Vivekananda Saraswati following an extensive Tantric rite of passage.
Kalki grew up in the very cosmopolitan hyper-creative yet unassuming Canadian city of Montreal. That instilled in him a love for the arts and the impassioned exploration of human nature. His longing for deeper connection with the rhythms of universe and the deeper mysteries of life led him to walk to the beat of his own drum. An accomplished actor and performance artist curiosity led him to take his improvisational art to the streets and the public at large. When he realized how unhappy and isolated people were, dominated by negativity and fear inspiration touched him and he opened his arms and heart to the passing world. 250,000 hugs later a desire to guide people to experience deeper intimacy and more meaningful connections with themselves and their world became his passion. Hugging Life, his award winning book had been published and Free Hugs had transformed into a global movement. Hugging had changed the course of his life.
He sold all he owned, put acting and performing aside to travel the world studying with a variety spiritual Masters and mentors. He dedicated himself to studying a wide range of ancient philosophies, healing technologies and spiritual practices. These included Reiki, ThetaHealing, Hypnosis, NLP, Ayurvedic massage, meditation and Yoga.
It was in Thailand that he discovered Tantric Yoga and the traditional teachings of Tantra. He knew then and there that this was to be his path, his new vocation, his way to merge spirituality, sexuality, creativity and healing with his natural gifts to touch, transform and empower the lives of others in the highest and best way possible. Kalki has devoted himself to embodying and sharing the practical, philosophical and esoteric aspects of this ancient spiritual science called Tantra.
Kalki is renowned for his uplifting hugs and his loving, refined and intuitive touch. He seamlessly combines techniques from all the healing arts he has mastered to bring powerful and lasting transformative experiences to those under his care. He strives to create an atmosphere of trust, comfort, sacredness and love where heightened states of awareness, surrender, and bliss can be reached.
He is fluent in English and French. He is also studying Spanish.
