Hypnotist & Self-Development Author and Public Speaker
I’m a hypnotist (certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists), working with clients on everything from quitting smoking and weight loss to cultivating confidence, remaining calm and in control in stressful situations, and achieving their life goals.
Besides my work in hypnotism, I’m probably best known as an author of books on self-development, spirituality, symbolism, meditation and visualization practices as well as a public speaker on the same subjects.
My most recently-published book is The Three Stages of Initiatic Spirituality: Craftsman, Warrior, Magician (Inner Traditions publishing, 2020). And I have spoken at conferences and to private groups around the U.S.A., from New York to Los Angeles, from Utah to Texas, and from Massachusetts to Virginia.
Mind, Body, Spirit: Speaking From Experience
My interest in the mind and self-development started early on. I began practicing meditation and mental development techniques, and studying spirituality, in my very early adulthood. Later, in my early twenties, I started practicing Shaolin Kung Fu in London, where I grew up (I now reside in New York City and have been living in the USA for the last couple of decades — with a few years in Canada in the middle). I have also studied the history of various spiritual and self-development traditions, and have written about them in books and articles.
Personally, today, I wake up early, write, and work out. I practice martial arts. And I practice meditation and techniques of mental focus (including several techniques I have developed myself over the years).
