I entered this life at Tacoma, Washington and have always been a spiritual seeker and explorer, driven by the innate knowledge that this reality we experience with our conscious minds and our five senses is just the tiniest fragment of what is real. This naturally lead me to metaphysical investigation, exploring religions and philosophies through books and practices. You will find the influences of Buddhism, Christianity and other religions and philosophies in my writings but the most important thing I have discovered is making a direct connection to the living, loving Spirit of the Universe that flows through all things. I now practice Indigenous Spirituality through simple ceremony and drumming. As well as being an author, I am a minister and medicine man with the Nemenhah Indigenous Traditional Organization and Native American Church of Nemenhah. I currently reside in central Ohio where I lead drum circles and events in state parks and at sacred sites throughout the region.
