The award-winning author of three books and dozens of articles, I started writing over twenty-five years ago to explore how spiritual tools can help us navigate an imperfect world. In recent years, my writing has focused more on how we can change that world, though spiritual tools still show up to keep us grounded and motivated by compassion, not ego. Today I think of myself as a multi-media storyteller, using stories to inspire people to think and act differently.
