Like many spiritual seekers, Elena Nezhinsky spent years meditating and studying spiritual writings and practices. Persistent inquiry into the nature of being and unknowable grace eventually culminated in a series of deep, awakening realizations. With uncompromising honesty, great humor, and a profound commitment to serving others, Elena shared her personal spiritual journey and the insights gleaned along the way in a book “Buddha on a Bull: A Practical Approach to Enlightenment“. As she puts it, “this is a book for everyone who is tired of seeking enlightenment, as I was.”
Elena is a co-creator of a method of awakening inquiry called Direct Pointing which continues to be profoundly helpful for thousands of people around the world. Elena holds M.S. in Engineering, she is professionally trained in Coaching, Human Design, and Family Constellations systems. She is a lifelong learner of Behavioral Psychology. A native of Ukraine, she lives in California now, where she continues to write and works as a Deep Transformation Mentor, guiding people to integrate and embody spiritual awakening.
