I have a degree in physics and many years’ experience as a business owner, an intuitive counselor and in corporate management. Initiated by a death experience in Vietnam, I’ve been seriously involved in shamanic work, spiritual practice, numerous therapies and other esoteric studies since 1965.
I’m co-owner of the three year BTB Feng Shui Masters Training at the New York Open Center, have been an international Feng Shui practitioner and educator since 1984 and have been designated a senior teacher by the late Professor Lin Yun, Grand Master of BTB Feng Shui.
My spiritual practice began in 1966 while an officer in the Navy. On my first diving mission in Vietnam, I had an equipment failure that lead to a near death experience. After the NDE, other peoples thoughts and feelings were like an open book to me. This was overwhelming and I learned to turn it off, especially after experiencing the death of one of my divers.
In 1968 I began studying with Charya Bernard, who had been a monk under Yogananda. I learned Kriya Yoga. My Kundalini quickly awakened. In 1970 Ram Das brought Swami Muktananda to Honolulu. At the airport Muktananda grabbed my arm and said, “Come to my ashram and I will help your meditation.” And he sure did. A number of people following Muktananda stayed over at my little shack on Lanakai Beach. The next morning, while chanting Ram with them, sitting in a lotus, I went flying through the Blue Pearl. I ended up about 10 feet from where I was sitting and they said I levitated.
I took him up on his offer and went to India. I lived quite a magical life there for two years. I studied with Baba Muktananda, Maurice Frydman, and Mother Krishnabhai. I helped Maurice record his dialogs with Nisargadatta Mahraj and edit the book “I Am That”.
The Karmapa came to Muktananda’s for about one week in 1972. He performed the Black Hat ceremony. That was my first introduction to Tibetan Buddhism. While in India, I became quite ill. Went from 165 pounds to 93 pounds. My life was saved by a lay homeopath who came to the ashram every Sunday. Ever since then I have been a student and practitioner of Homeopathy.
In 1974, I was back in the States and studied with Guru Bawa, a Sufi from Sri Lanka. At that time he was around 142 years old and lived another 10 years at least. In 1974, I studied with Swamis Chinmayanada, Dayananda, and Brahmananda. I became involved in Gestalt therapy and have worked with many therapies subsequently. Through the late 70's and early 80's I became one of the first certified Bach Flower practitioners, studied NLP, and got deeply involved with Hawaiian Huna in the lineage of Big Daddy Bray with Drs. Jack and Jo Grey.
In 1984 I took refuge with Kalu Rimpoche and started studies with Prof. Lin Yun Rimpoche of the Black Sect of Chinese Esoteric Buddhism in Feng Shui, Taoism, Bon, and all the esoteric arts to adjust one's life. I have been studying with Prof. Lin ever since as well as other teachers such as Chagdud Tulku, Jigme Phuntsog, Lama Wangdor, and Kenchen Konchog.
In 1979 I began studies in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Ericksonian Hypnosis. Around 2002 I began studying Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and then Be Set Free Fast (BSFF), both forms of Energy Psychology. I am now an authorized BSFF Advanced Trainer and and Coach.
I use the empowerments, techniques and teaching from all of these traditions in my work of Feng Shui, Space Clearing (transforming negative energies), teaching and Shamanic Energy Psychology counseling.
My NDE and all the spiritual practice I have done allows me to connect with spirits and other energies and help them heal and cross over. Through my esoteric practices and energy psychology skills, I am able to help people with numerous spiritual and emotional issues as well as transform their environments to support their healing.
