My Vision

We live in challenging and difficult times: 9/11/01, climate change, the global economic downturn, and continuing unrest in the Middle East are just a few of the difficulties we face.  Our response to these must be multifaceted and include education, political pressure, scientific advancement, and spirituality.  I am most interested in spirituality, and have been since my return from Viet Nam as a Marine combat veteran.  It was clear to me then as it is now that any solution that excludes spirituality will not work.

Spirituality is that discipline and art form that investigates the depth of the human person.  The perennial questions of spirituality are:

  • Is there a God?  Or to use more neutral language: does an Absolute exist?
  • If God does exist, what is the nature of God?
  • What does it mean to be a human being, and how can one live righteously?
  • What kind of Kosmos do we live in?
To explore these questions is to be engaged in spirituality.

I work in the field of spirituality, offering private spiritual direction, and leading educational and spiritual events such as retreats and workshops.

I am a Deacon in the Roman Catholic Church, and I intend to remain so until I die.  My faith is grounded in the faith that Jesus is Lord, but I also believe in perennial philosophy – that God has spoken to all peoples at all times.  I am a member of International Satsang Association, and I study Integral Philosophy.

I work with individuals and groups who wish to deepen their spiritual grounding, and who believe that spirituality can aid in the evolution of human consciousness and, to use a Christian phrase, build up the Kingdom of God. In this Reign, there exists a "companionship of empowerment" in which I serve.1


1The “companionship of empowerment” is a collection of individuals supporting each other to attain Christ Consciousness (Philippians 2:5). For more information, see Dominic Crossan, “” in Title, (publisher information).
