About Saemi


Saemi Nakamura was born and grew up in Tokyo. Although she was having a comfortable life there, she felt that something was missing.  “Is there something more to life?” “What is the meaning of life?” “What is the purpose of my life?” So she left everything familiar behind and came to the United States with one suitcase and broken English to find out who she was. Because she thought that acting training might be able to help her explore the various facets of her being, she joined an acting school in Hollywood.  She has worked on films, television shows, and numerous commercials for over twenty years.  Her first memoir was published in Japan in 1998 and followed by three more books sharing her experience and insights living in Los Angeles. Her story inspired countless young people. 


She had her first experience with an expanded state of awareness during a Holotropic Breathwork workshop in 2012. After a three-year-long training, she became a Stan Grof Certified Holotropic Breathwork Facilitator in 2016. The same year, she met Mau Isshiki who is the founder of TAW Fractal Phenomenology and Fractal Psychology. Through studying TAW and receiving personal training from Mau Isshiki, she gained a significant understanding of life and human consciousness.  She designed a one day workshop "Train Your Brain, Master Your Life" with Michael Stone and contributes her energy introducing TAW-Theory of An Advanced World in America and permeating the knowledge of how people can free themselves from their own conditioning.  Her hope is that everyone will discover the way to access one's own divine essence and experience true freedom.
