I am the author of “Be Love: A Book About Awakening” and public speaker. I’ve had a keen interest in self-help and spirituality for the last 20 years of my life. I spent eight years working with a doctor holding study groups, meditation groups and facilitating workshops which he and I developed. During and after my time with Dr. Johnson I found the Ishaya Monks, in total I spent eight years traveling around with them. I eventually took vows and became an Ishaya for a year. After I left the Ishayas, I attended Western University to study Psychology and English for a period of two years. Other courses I have taken include Palliative Care, Toast Masters (to learn how to become a professional speaker). Over the years I have facilitated workshops and talks in schools, Ontario police College, Canadian Mental Health Association, Rogers Daytime TV and been a guest and a host on CHRW radio at Western University. Currently, I am a self-employed artist and I have been in business for the last 28 years. I am also a Pastoral Chaplain.
