I teach a nature and story-based approach to transformation in my books and coaching.

Writing Your Destiny offers a series of ten steps of uplifting your personal life and business through a nature and story based approach to transformation.





My second book, The Seven Foundations of a Resilient Livelihood, teaches how to live well in work and play, and includes guidance based on my work in the sustainability field.

The principles in the book are fairly simple:

1. Contribute to Something Greater Than Yourself

2. Use Your Resources Wisely.

3. Strengthen Your Personal Connections

4. Use Technology to Slow Down and Accomplish More

5. It’s Not What You Earn, It’s What You Save (and this isn’t about money)

6. Value Real Wisdom Above the Appearance of Wisdom

7. Commit to Using Kindness and Respect to Resolving Conflicts

The_Moon_Meets_The_S_Cover_for_KindleIn 2013, I wrote The Moon Meets the Sun in You for my son Nicholas, as he was beginning middle school.  My goal was to share ideas and philosophies that might benefit him his whole life.  He helped me to choose the title of the book, as well as the final cover design.

    Since I am an avid reader, do you have any books out? I also must put these on my new list for reading in 2012!

      The two “journal books” on this page are what I have out so far that can be purchased. I’m very proud of what I’ve been able to share in both of those books.
      This year as I’m writing my blog, I’m collecting material for 2 more journal books to come out this year and then probably a Sustaining Stories book to come out in 2013 that discusses the work that I’m doing this year.
      You can click on the pictures of the books on this page to purchase either of them through Amazon if you wish.
      In the next week or so, I’m also going to be adding a free pdf book. My intent is to offer many more tools between now and then the end of the year.
