My Passion

Helping people ignite conscious, purpose-inspired lives

My journey


Back in the recesses of my childhood, I began to notice a difference between what people wanted and what they settled for. Paraphrasing longshoreman philosopher, Eric Hoffer, I learned you can never get enough of what you don’t really want.


I soon discovered that what I focused on in life rarely correlated to the satisfaction I thought it would bring. I found that I could bust my tail to get something I thought was important, get it, and wind up wondering why I ever wanted it in the first place.

There's a huge difference between achieving money, job or career goals and the deeper experiences we truly seek - purpose, meaning, and genuine fulfillment. 


Sensing that I was being called into something bigger than me, I created Insight Seminars in 1978. Little did I realize that Insight would spread around the world, reaching more than 43 countries, transforming hundreds of thousands of lives.

In helping people create purpose-inspired lives, my own unique gifts have been revealed and honed.  Clarity, focus, compassion and out-of-the-box thinking allow me to hear deeper messages and help people connect to the future that is calling them forward.


I invite you to join me in discovering the future that is calling you. Access your own unique gifts and live consciously from the greater depth of your being.
