I call myself "the mad mystic of the desert" because my favorite spiritual author and teacher, the late great Neville Goddard was known as "the mad mystic of 48th Street" and I certainly aspire to his fabulous kind of madness!

I have been studying, teaching and practicing spiritual principles most of my life. It became my passionate calling in the early 1980's and my full-time work in 1991. It's the only job I've had since then and I love it more than I can say. For over 30 years I have had a wonderful career of teaching these timeless principle of successful living that bring more joy, inner peace, health, love and prosperity into the lives of those who want to create a life of joyous expansion rather than simply settling for a banquet of crumbs.

I have written 11 books on spirituality and have shared stages with best-selling author Marianne Williamson many times on Christmas Eves in Santa Barbara. I lectured annually at the Santa Barbara County Bowl on Easter Sundays and my talks in Santa Barbara, San Diego, Palm Springs and Beverly Hills were attended by thousands over the years, including celebrities Kenny Loggins, Christopher Cross, Fannie Flagg, RuPaul, and many others including nuns, monks, therapists, healers, and mostly everyday folks like myself who seek more joy, inner peace and well being in all areas of life. Since those days I have moved to the desert and now much prefer to teach more intimate groups and to do livestreams and see a few private clients.
