9-11, 2001 marked a turning point in Mikki’s life and career.

It was atop the rubble of the World Trade Center where his life’s mission was defined. Since then, Mikki has led missions to bring clean water to third-world countries, build homes for the homeless, create schools in Africa, and deliver musical equipment to children in war torn territories, support eco-green initiatives, and mentor young filmmakers.

From spiritual practices, to high performance sports, breath is the essential foundation. It is literally the language of nature. Through breath work we remember who we are, and why we're here.
Synchronized breathing re-links the circuitry of human interconnectedness. Each human body is a vital cell in the organism we call life. Breathing together entrains our bodies to vibrate in harmony, bringing inner and outer peace.
