Maja Apolonia Rodé, PhD, believes that our most noble potentials come to life at the intersection of consciousness, creativity, and connection. Maja's passion is to inspire and cultivate the realization of our unique individual gifts and unknown collective possibilities — for the benefit of all.
A philosopher, poet, artist, musician, and free thinker, Maja holds a PhD in Transpersonal Psychology and is a lifelong student of both the creative process and contemplative spirituality. Maja played a foundational role in launching the career of Adyashanti, one of the most highly respected teachers in the field of nondual awareness. Maja has presented her original insights on the creative process, contemplative inquiry, and community development at the Science and Nonduality conferences, the Nondual Wisdom and Psychology conferences, retreats with the Center for Nondual Awareness, and at Open Circle Center gatherings.
The daughter of a technology pioneer, Maja grew up immersed in the true heart of Silicon Valley with its innovative creative spirit and its world-changing impact. She continues to create and contemplate in the San Francisco Bay Area, now a mecca for both technological innovation and the human consciousness movement.
