In my life’s journey, I am a family man and have been a senior business executive and consultant. I worked around the globe. I also advised the World Bank and the Canadian Government on international and business matters. I have run not-for profit organizations, lent a hand in the early days of the world-wide environmental movement, and have lived in authentic 'alternative communities'. I helped start what is now one of the world’s largest yoga schools, in Thailand. I have studied and practiced with great spiritual and philosophy teachers in the West and East.
I am a poet, painter and musician. I have lived life to the full. At times I have been swallowed by the darkness and have faced death in the form of armed violence, and also severe illness, and in providing palliative care for my wife, Maureen; but I have also bathed in the light of unnameable and unfathomable delight. Now I live with joyful aliveness at the portal between all worlds.
My authority comes from 40 years of study and practice. I promote no religion, sect or philosophy, but am an interpreter for aspects of many of these traditions. I offer a way of understanding the self and the soul, and the underlying mystery that links the two. I am a metaphysician or metaphysics philosopher, and spirtual guide. I am not a registered therapist or psychologist.
My task and delight is to share a distillation of my studies and a synthesis of key insights from a range of spiritual, mystical and philosophical sources. I teach the essence of what I have experienced and learned to be true. My sources are from leading teachers alive today, traditional Western and Eastern philosophy, as well as psychology, religion, spirituality and mysticism.
My goal is to offer deep insight about your reason for being; and suggest to you practical ways to overcome obstacles and crises; how to identify and accomplish your goals and find peace; and reveal practical ways to accomplish a successful and joyful, integrated and authentic life.
I teach at the forefront of a new understanding about life, and am both a ‘spiritual evolutionary’ and ‘global steward’. I teach of overcoming day-to-day challenges; of living a meaningful and joyful life; of life and death; of sublime mysteries, and of the ‘Journey of the Soul’ that ties all together and that gives it meaning. My teaching is both insightful and also intensely practical, since it is based on your needs and aspirations.
