Aura Bakker is the founder of Everything New Academy.
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 Samraj, who taught her some of the fundamental principles on which Everything New Academy is based.
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, she was a guidance counselor, coach, and led meditation and art retreats. Eventually, all of this came together as what is 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.
