Steve, who was born in Montreal but has lived in and around Estonia for many years, has been practising a variety of touch-based healing modalities for 20 years. A sacred, quiet space, created through trust and conscious touch, is a temple in which the body works to heal itself. Steve is also the founder and manager of Chado, Estonia’s first tea shop. In addition, he explores a meditative form of tea ceremony rooted in Zen. Previously he was a journalist, Lonely Planet travel writer, film critic and psychological counsellor.
