Social & Spiritual Scientist


My mission is to illuminate the human soul.

My soul purpose is to shine a light on hidden aspects of self and society.


My message is there’s so much more…to see, feel, sense, know, and learn.

Tara and Ken:
soul halves reunited after 29 years

Any one person’s journey is a unique experience of infinite learnings and growings, pains and joys, sorrows and surprises, loves and losses.

My spiritual journey is summarized in detail on this profile page of my spiritual community Trillium Awakening, where I volunteer and serve as a mentor.

My professional careers, background, education, and trainings are summarized on this page.

Reuniting with Ken has been a highlight of life, challenging me every day to stretch and grow my capacities in each area of life/self/soul/source/god. Not only is he extremely creative, with a photographic memory, accounting mind for math, vast knowledge about health, passion for recycling, and McGyver-like resourcefulness, he is the bravest person I have ever known. Unlike me, he is willing to NOT conform or comply with social pressure or coercion, no matter what the consequence.

He practices responding in non-violent ways to other people’s aggressive attempts to control his behaviors, and lives based on simple principles of ahimsa and veganism. One of his role models is Dr Will Tuttle and another is AJ MIller of Divine Truth.

Although neither of us is perfect, Ken models an intention to unite qualities of ethics and divine truth with qualities of divine love. I hope to do the same to a higher degree each year…baby steps;-)

Maybe someday all of us will learn that responding to violence with violence only creates more violence. Even violence for the “right” reasons is still violence.

What do we want to create for the future? As a fully functional adult, I do not want to continue to generate fear, justify violence for any reason, nor impose my will on others in order to educate/upgrade them to my beliefs/behaviors or level of development, nor protect myself from “them”.

Perhaps we humans can only stop reacting with violence (often justified for reasons of self-protection, safety, and feeling power and control vs helpless and weak), once we directly experience the multidimensional nature of the self and its underlying unique source of existence (soul) that is connected to the source of the universe (god).

Until now, I had no idea what I was creating, participating in, and contributing to in our society…until I developed a full experiential sense of myself that exists beyond human-created languages and its endless narratives.

With the rest of the time I have left on earth, I desire to build toward a “science of soul development” with online courses for self, spiritual, and leadership development. Each of these topics serve as pathways for soul development, representing a pathway through authenticity, divine love, and collective co-creating.
