Jaap Gardner has spent the last twenty six years studying the evolution of integral human consciousness and yogic sciences with a keen interest in individual spiritual enlightenment (Self Realization). With an intellectual and experiential understanding of different forms of meditation, schools of yoga, and ancient yogic scriptures, she shares non denominational truths and practices that facilitate an experience of flawless Self Knowledge. As a recipient of a full ride leadership and theatre scholarship, she earned a B.F.A in the Performing Arts with a minor in Group Facilitation. Shortly after gaining her certification as a Hatha & Kundalini Yoga Instructor, she dedicated seventeen years working for Yogi Bhajan’s non-profit Kundalini Yoga organization as the Events Program Director and served the last five years there as the CEO before resigning in 2017 to start her own business. Her passion lies in breaking down the walls of religion, spiritual paths/communities, and Guru’s (teacher), so that the timeless, transformative truths found within them can benefit all people in creating and following their own individual Dharma (Path of Right Action). Through creativity, humor and love, she re-frames, re-names and presents these transformative truths and shares them in a variety of ways. With DharmaDiner.com, she’s created a virtual, good ol’ fashion democratic community diner, that welcomes all people in a fun, casual, diverse place, where they can easily connect, access tools, and succeed on their chosen spiritual path . Everything she does is meant to support people in feeding their daily connection to the invisible source sustaining all things so that they can claim their birthright of Self Realization!
