I have found my life to be a journey of transformation from little nature boy, to young athlete, to social justice advocate, to addictions counselor, to educator and public speaker. Woven throughout this spiritual journey has been the study, experience, and commitment to love and truth.
I am a veteran of spiritual experience and practice. The word veteran originates in the Indo European 'wet', which means "to inspire or spiritually engage." I will confess with great humility that when I speak, I seek to inspire and what interests me most is spiritual engagement.
The work we all do on this journey of spiritual transformation is essential. It is impossible to do alone. We thrive in community.
As my spiritual journey has become more and more conscious, I am acutely aware that my prayer time has become more intimate, receptive, and silent. I listen for "the still, small voice." I breathe and wait to hear God's voice.
What I have heard the past 20+ years has been; love, speak your truth, serve, make your life and your love, a resource for others. I have found that as I share my truth and vulnerability, I give others the permission to do the same. Our spiritual transformation is to grow from our individual egos to being fully human and finally to finding our way back home to God.
