Aura Bakker is the founder of Everything New.
Growing up between Holland, England, and California, she enjoyed a wealth of experience from immersion in each different culture as well as from the guidance of her spiritual teacher, Adi Da.
Aura has taught and spent time with children and young people in all those places for many years. After getting a BA in music in the Netherlands, she began teaching as a music & elementary school teacher. Then, over the years, a guidance counselor, she led meditation and art retreats, and eventually, all of this came together in the games, life discussions, and exercises that are now a part of the curriculum at
Everything New Academy. Sometimes she is joined by her puppet friend Clarence with whom she teaches the younger ones.
