I am a Non-Denominational Ordained Minister, I’ve had a keen interest in self-help and spirituality for the last 20 years of my life. I spent eight years working with a doctor holding study groups, meditation groups and facilitating workshops which he and I developed. During and after my time with Dr. Johnson I found the Ishaya Monks, in total I spent eight years traveling around with them. I eventually took vows and became an Ishaya for a year. During my time with the Ishayas, I would go on meditation retreats for up to two months at a time. After I left the Ishayas, I attended Western University to study Psychology and English for a period of two years. I have training in a few different healing modalities. Other courses I have taken include Palliative Care, Toast Masters (to learn how to become a professional speaker). I have a native spirituality course and was fire keeper for a sweat lodge. Over the years I have facilitated workshops and talks in schools, the Canadian Mental Health Association, Rogers Daytime TV and been a guest and a host on CHRW radio at Western University. Currently, I am a self-employed artist and I have been in business for the last 25 years. I have volunteered as a Big Brother (eight years), Palliative Care Support Worker (one year) and worked with special needs children and adults (three years). Workshops I have taught over the years include, Become a Gentle-Man, Meditation and Journey to the Hearts Riches.
