What we're about
After nearly 30 years of mentoring countless men who wanted more out of their lives, I have decided to offer my experience as a retreat master to the meetup community of NYC. My goal for this group is to witness each other’s success in reaching for and living more joyful, peaceful, loving and rewarding lives.
Through moderated group discussions, activities, & retreats, group members identify attitudes, beliefs, & habits that damage or hamper relationships with themselves and others. We can transform life’s circumstances, no matter how difficult or tragic, towards the highest good of all concerned. History is not destiny! We start within, but outer transformation can manifest faster than you might expect.
I share some of my personal experiences as teaching tools. We will learn to recognize and be grateful for challenging people & situations. They are among our greatest teachers for the contrast they provide in defining what we do (& do not) want in life.
After collaborating for over a year, we decided to venture into the meetup world. My background is in program planning, which aims to boost an entire community’s quality of life -- based on that community’s own consensus-based definition of high quality.
I also love working with individuals at the deepest emotional and energetic (e.g., unconscious) levels to reach their own quality of life goals such as:
--eliminating phobias, PTSD, allergies & addictions.
As a health educator (master of public health), I help people access the information they need to make better decisions.
As a student of world religions, philosophies & teachers (grad work in theology & studies with masters), I draw from many schools of thought for tools to help us strengthen & use the body-mind connection.
As a practitioner of the energy arts (Reiki-M, Thai Massage, MTHS, EFT-3, & TFT certification in California & Thailand), I have personally experienced, facilitated & witnessed miraculous transformations in myself & others.
Some of my studies & readings include such teachers, authors & books as: David R. Hawkins, Candace Pert, Bruce Lipton, Byron Katie, Marshall Rosenberg, Kelly Bryson, Roger Callahan, Fritz Guy, Abraham-Hicks, Caroline Myss, Doc Childre, Bruce Cryer, M. Scott Peck, Mark Anup Karlsson, Jaz Goven, Jacque Smillie, Samir Selmanovic, Richard Hart, Raj Arole & his late wife Mabelle, Suzanne Montgomery, A Course In Miracles & others.
I look forward to meeting each of the therapists, healers, coaches & other spiritual aspirants who attend this meetup group's events.
