He’s passionate about the intersection nature-based depth psychology and Nonviolent Communication as a way to contribute to “The Great Turning” ► by co-creating a thriving compassionate culture.

• He’s been involved in personal growth programs since the mid-1980’s, participated in many workshops, retreats and 12-step recovery.

• He began his journey into nature based spirituality in the late 1990’s. After publishing his book “The Joy of Compassionate Connecting - The Way of Christ Through Nonviolent Communication” in 2010, he participated in a Franciscan-inspired men’s rites of passage in 2011.
