My professional life
As the Executive Director of COTS (Committee on the Shelterless, in the Bay Area) for over 20 years, I helped over 20,000 of people to find homes and develop the foundation for full, rich, and loving lives.
As Chaplain at Hopewest Hospice, I assisted people in their graceful and loving transition beyond their physical form. Where I live
I reside at 6,000 feet on the side of a mountain in western Colorado, with no traffic lights for 30 miles, and enjoy getaways to urban areas and spicy hot chai.Are we similar?
I'm a spouse, a parent, a friend, and a man who has fewer years ahead than behind. I've had many ups and downs and challenges in my life.What makes me happy
I'm happiest when I'm helping, and my broad life experience helps me to relate to people from all walks of life.A special place in my heart
I have a special place in my heart for those who've been hurt in their lives, since that has happened to me.Why I like to help
I've found that by helping others, we help ourselves to heal and find happiness.Meditation has sustained me
Meditation and related disciplines have sustained my growth for almost 40 years, and enabled me to face immense challenges in my life's work supporting people in their growth and transformation. I've taught these practices at various universities, congregations, homeless shelters, and yoga studios.How I invest my time
My main work now is supporting individuals and groups in their growth so that they can help to heal the world and find fulfillment. I hope to reach and help thousands with these courses.Where does the money go?
I'm fortunate to have enough money for my and my spouse's needs.
The proceeds of my courses pay the people who help with the work, and and also support the Love in Action movement.
