My Background

As an entrepreneur and native of the United States, now living in France, my study of things spiritual has taken me around the world – from the USA to London, from France to Australia, and Ireland to India. I have been a long-time student of Transcendental Meditation, have spent time at Plum Village, home of famed author and Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh, and was present at the Dalai Lama’s visit at Plouray, Brittany, experiencing at arm’s length his extraordinary presence. I have met with Indian pundits both in situ and in the United States on practical matters and astrology and I am a member of the College of Psychic Studies in London, and currently support the Self-Realization Fellowship of Paramahansa Yogananda in Los Angeles. I continue to be a student of alternative therapies such as Healing Touch, massage, hypnotherapy and EFT, and have studied with yoga masters in Australia, Ireland and Uruguay. I am a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and  am retired from my businesses of foreign currency trading and VAT reclamation for corporations.

In my writings, I’ve looked to synthesize what I have learned along the way…and to incorporate that into some good stories! My encounters and experiences have taught me that spirituality is about one thing only — direct connection to the Divine — as part of, or independent of, an organized religion. When we make the effort to go within and gain Awareness , we will find that connection and the resulting path to temporal and spiritual contentment.
