Over the past twenty years, Michael has articulated the startling discovery of an innate divine potential and Identity through a series of public talks & dialogues, experimental leadership work and annual wilderness adventures, with an emphasis on converting the light of one’s deepest Self into an actual, embodied reality – that is the Work.
As an independent, Michael reminds us that “sacred artistry cannot lean on relentless, caustic critiques, even those addressing well-documented mischief in the religious and spiritual arenas; what matters is that the expression of one’s heart come to fruition in the most authentic way and find its rightful place in the world around us.”
Since 1999 when his truck’s engine suffered a catastrophic seizure outside a temple, Michael has lived and worked in the high desert where he convenes people from a wide range of artistic and wisdom traditions who want to use a contemporary, self-directed model of devotion to explore new frontiers in their own spiritual and creative work.
Michael is a graduate of Boston College and Duke University.
Embodying one’s innermost nature is the work of a lifetime.
