Early on in my adult life, I spent time working for Motorola as a communications engineer, and started working with a group here in California doing radionics research, still pursuing the same questions about energy and electromagnetics. I got involved in the first company to introduce spirulina, a blue-green algae with incredible nutritional value, to the West. We did a project in Palm Springs are that proved you could go out into the middle of a des-
lever, and that none of the other stuff will truly be resolved until changes occur at that level. That’s still true. We could solve world hunger right now, and everyone on the planet could have food and clean water for ten percent of the world’s military budget – that’s a consciousness problem. Somewhat disillusioned, at that point, I said heck with it for a while, I’m going to make money again. I started a company that went from a
Doc Childre introduced me to the heart in completely new ways – to the heart as a literal access point to our deeper inner voice and wisdom. In meditation courses and so on, I had learned about the heart chakra, but previous to meeting Doc, I had only looked at the heart as a metaphor. That’s where my meditation practices were stuck.

It’s a pretty eye-opening realization to understand that human consciousness is the
garage to a very successful company in just a few years. Quickly, though, I realized that another sports car in the driveway wasn’t going to do anything for me on a deeper level. It was at that point in my life that I met Doc Childre through some mutual friends. We were both out on the East Coast in the North Carolina area around the same time, and I visited him there on some other business. I figured I’d spend an hour with him; three days later I came home.

Doc introduced me to something different, and started a whole new adventure in my life.
