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 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. It was a part of acting training to become a good storyteller, and she started writing about her trials and tribulations during the period from when she moved to Los Angeles with one suitcase without speaking much English to when she started making her living in the entertainment business. Her story was discovered by one of the most prestigious publishers in Japan and published in 1998 as her memoir. It was well received and inspired countless young people. This book was followed by three more books sharing her experience as a single woman becoming independent mentally as well as financially in a faraway land from home.
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 Fractal Phenomenology and Theory of an Advanced World (TAW)/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 hosting TAW classes in English and giving Fractal Psychology Counseling Sessions 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.
