About Mokshalom

MOKSHALOM is the combination of two words: moksha (Sanskrit), which means spiritual liberation (especially from negative earthly attachments), and shalom (Hebrew), which means peace, health and wholeness.

The purpose of this site is to take the best from Eastern and Western spiritual and wellness traditions and provide a grounded, holistic approach to health and healing.

It's also a reflection of my personal spiritual journey. I was raised a Christian, but left the church to explore the New Age in my 20s and 30s. In my late 30s, I was called back to Christ and have since been working on discerning what I can keep from my holistic studies and what needs to be gently moved aside. Unlike some Christians, I do not automatically label a practice evil or demonic just because New Agers do it. At the same time, I do not think it is a good idea to wantonly throw out 2,000 years of Christian thought just to pander to modern sensibilities.

The Mokshalom approach is a pro-Christ perspective, but is not specifically geared towards Christians. It is hope that this site can provide somewhat of a bridge between worlds, without compromising on certain foundational truths, or good, old-fashioned common sense.
