What inspired you to write your memoir?
We are really explores of consciousness as finding the right way to dive into this pool stream is the mastery. Everyone must find there own path that authentically resonates with them. For me, my book had generate with what I am passionate, what I teach and what I do as a dream mantra. I picked Tao as theme of my life because Tao translates the organic ways of “Life Path”
Creation is our souls path as writing draws forth our experiences and expressions to say what we get to say unstoppably and contently.
Yet, it is still deeper than that of Tao. My secret to having creative depth and imagination is “Meditation”. From meditation as the primary medium, I write to refine my visions with thoughts.

We all have a story, yet we are more than any story that defines us.
For example, I am a certified Transformational Leader (CTL), certified Reiki Master (CRM), seasoned Tai Chi and Qi-gong instructor and registered Sidha®. As a teacher of energy medicine and a mastery of Energy Mind/Body flow, I utilize these 30 years of personal experience in bio-energetic healing stemming from living Tao principles.
I could tell you that my classes and workshops on the Living Tao, Tai Chi, Qigong, meditation, communication, and Reiki healing, have been attended by many famous people – including actors, producers, writers, doctors, politicians and some of the leading health practitioners in the country.
Or I could tell you that I am known by many as a Zen architect, and by others due to the national exposure I received through radio, television, and print publications as a creator of meditative music, and other healing creative arts. As a visionary to creativity, so is my mission to influencing the world with fresh insights.
But, if you were to ask me how I might define myself right now in this moment, I would tell you that I am an “Explorer” who has set sail on a lifelong journey to access ancient wisdom. And I would tell you that my passion is to act as a “Guide to the Inner Worlds” for others who wish to explore their own inner territory.
There is an entire world within, right at the tip of your consciousness that is just waiting to gift you its treasures. Life can be much more fulfilling and exciting than most people are led to believe. Just as my gifts have been revealed to me, your gifts will be revealed to you, and to the world, when you awaken to who you truly are.
