About Me I'm a retired psychologist, wellness consultant, and internet marketer living in the wilds of northern Minnesota. I share this idyllic retirement abode with my wife, Mildred, three of our grandkids, a dog and a cat--along with diverse wildlife.

I've spent most of my adult life helping others become more successful in life and this continues to be a key part of my main life mission.

Spiritual development is a primary pursuit for me. I've practiced mindfulness meditation for over 30 years and was a pioneer in introducing mindfulness-based stress reduction in Minnesota a dozen years ago.

For me, the entire universe is a seamless unity, unfolding endlessly in ever-changing forms. Each of us, is an impermanent wave on this great ocean. All supposed "things" are verbs, not nouns. All "selves" are comprised entirely by non-self elements. Separateness is completely illusory. My over-riding aim is to awaken--and stay awake--as fully as possible to this Reality and to live in accordance with it. With this View, helping others and oneself are one and the same.

    There is little that compares to the beauty of nature, but having wonderful friends comes very close.
