Providing roadmaps and resources for your spiritual journey . . . wherever it takes you!
The purpose of this site is not just to blab about myself and my interests, but to share my spiritual journey asking the question, “Does spirituality exist outside of religion?” My path has lead me through organized religion, spiritual experiences, seminary education, and a few degrees in psychology.
My hope is by sharing what I have learned may help you in your journey, and provide answers to questions you may have because, I believe, we all are . . . Angels in Training!

As our religion-based society shifts to embrace spirituality, it is driving a global trend called “the rise of the nones.” These are people who view themselves as spiritual but do not identify with any organized religion. For those comfortable with their faith, it has spurred an exploration of spiritual practices to incorporate into their lives.
I experienced this transition after decades pursuing a deeper spiritual life through a tumultuous relationship with organized religion. The result was the development of 12 Lessons that took me beyond religion to spiritual freedom. My conclusion is that we are angels; eternal, connected, and capable beyond belief.
Raised in a typical blue-collar family, we did all the things required by our protestant church: attended services, Sunday school, and confirmation classes. However, a short answer to a simple question from my pastor shocked me into considering other ways to think about God. The following years were filled with roller-coaster rides of events, chance meetings, and even a close encounter with demon possession. My journey took me from the Lutheran church through the born-again movement, to the Presbyterian denomination.
Despite all my religious involvement, knowledge, and education, my personal life decayed until I hit rock bottom. Then, ascending from the ashes of my life, I continued my journey, this time looking for answers beyond religion. This search led me to study the Conversations with God series, as well as A Course in Miracles, The Secret, and Abraham-Hicks materials.
The answers I found led me to gain an understanding of the new paradigm describing who we are and our place in the Universe. Also, I discovered how quantum theory may provide support for the Law of Attraction.
