Atreya Thomas is a spiritual teacher, author and father of four children whom were all adopted through foster care. He continues to foster drug exposed newborns with his wife in California and works closely with underprivileged communities. He works as a preschool teacher and holds a degree in Psychology.
From a young age, Atreya was a spiritual seeker. At age 27, he gave up his pursuit, a pessimist, declaring that there are no answers in books and that people cannot change. At age 30, he was overtaken by the first in a series of three transformations over 3 years. With each transformation, awareness of the unchanging observer became more permanent, which eventually culminated into merging the observer and the observed.
