Having overcome drug and alcohol addiction more than two decades ago, Paul embarked on a journey of inner exploration, which lead him to Asia.  Along the way, he discovered his gifts of insight and talent for teaching.

“We have all the answers we need inside of us. But most of us have not been taught how to find them. With a strong center, a good attitude and the right tools, you can accomplish amazing things.”

Paul’s previous work as a photojournalist, as well as the experience of recovery, has kept him grounded in the real world.

"You don't need to wear you spirituality on your sleeve. Living from a strong inner place, we can have the strength to handle all of the difficulties the life throws at us, as well as find joy, peace, meaning and purpose in our daily lives."
