"If you stay open to all opportunities and choose wisely, the miraculous can happen to you." ReBecoming: The Way of Opportunity

Background Information



   Currently, I live and write on an island in my childhood home on the Suncoast of Florida. My parents moved there to escape to paradise and raise a family. Living on an island gives you a different perspective: you spend a lot of time outdoors, you tend to view life more from the outside looking in, and you are more easily moved to see things as a whole rather than in pieces. Yet, "no man is an island entire of itself; every man is a part of the continent, a part of the main."(Donne, 1624). So as I matured, I joined the mainlanders and learned to do as mainlanders do, not always with the best results.
   After the university, a Master of Science Degree in Geology culminated a career in the oil and gas industry where I was a national and international Exploration Manager, and today, though no longer working in the oil business, I remain a Certified Petroleum Geologist and my interest in geology and climate instability is included in my writings and lectures.
   In addition and in parallel with the Earth and its functions, I was also interested in human suffering and its causes, perhaps because of my own childhood. Then at age nineteen I received a powerful insight which showed me I did not have to live in pain and fear; I did not have to suffer, and that is where my personal inner journey began. ReBecoming: The Way of Opportunity is the result of many years of study, both solitary and with the company of prominant, insightful teachers in several timeless spiritual traditions, and of my own life experiences. I have also become a Personal Trainer and Exercise Rehabilitation Specialist.
   Presently, I concentrate on writing, lecturing, and teaching transformational wisdom, and "I've found I want to teach what I know, because knowledge is always to be passed along, and truths are always to be shared. Why let someone else suffer from the same affliction?" That's why it is my sincere wish that as you read and engage the principles in my books that more loving-kindness, compassion, and equanimity comes to you creating the happiest life you have ever imagined.
I have three more books, both fiction and non-fiction, currently in progress. And I am founder and President of the ReBecoming Foundation®.

ReBecoming is a tale of mystery and miracles, luck and fortune, danger and romance. It is a story that reveals the inner meaning and practice of the most essential truths of all: life, love, and happiness. It's also about choices and change, preparation and opportunity, the knowing heart and the willing mind. And it’s about having the courage to transform our destiny, and ultimately realize our true inner core of happiness.
