Toni was born in Genova, Italy and raised in Italy and France. At 10 years old, Toni spontaneously experienced a complete state of freedom and Love from innocently asking this simple question: “Who am I, who am I?….” This instinctive inquiry is common to us all. Falling back into the unbounded Love which is our true nature is uncommon, only because it is the simplest state of Being. This profound experience set her on a lifelong course to discover and permanently connect with our inner source of unshakable happiness and peace.
After majoring in Philosophy, Toni moved to Manhattan to pursue a fast paced business career and became a top real estate producer while continuing to study and deepen her understanding of the major spiritual systems by reading religious texts, scriptures from all traditions, spiritual books from all paths. In 1985, after being diagnosed with a life-threatening chronic disease, Toni met her teacher, Her Holiness Mata Amritanandamayi (known as Amma or “The Hugging Saint”), and embarked on an intense spiritual quest under her direct guidance. Spending 8 years on and off at Amma’s side in India, meditating 8 hours a day, all the while raising her two children, Toni continues to deepen the experience of unconditional Love and oneness with all. She has been meditating for over 25 years and is successfully integrating the richness of the inner journey and the delights of the worldly life.
“Love is the traveler, the destination and the journey. And it is never about us. It just IS.”
Her burning desire now is to share this inner joy, the many discoveries made along the way, and empower all to connect to their own source of Love. With boundless enthusiasm and a heart big enough to fit the whole universe, Toni inspires you to start your own journey within, to deepen your experience of Love, and to join her in a transformational Love Evolution!
