    description of :
    I have studied metaphysics and philosophy all of my adult life. For over twenty years I have explored the mysteries that surround civilization. I have been teaching in private classes for over 15 years. I founded the Etherian Brotherhood, an organization dedicated to positive thinking and positive action and the continuing study of the Mysteries of Life. My experience is life long and practiced daily. I am well versed in the practices of many belief systems including many of the 'Magic' using systems of the New Age movement. I am non-judgmental and accept that everyone has something to offer. My only requirements are an open mind and willingness to learn something that may be different from what you may be comfortable with.

    's preferred teaching style:
    Most of what I teach is done with a commonsensical approach. I tend to be very sociable and believe the only dumb questions are the ones not asked. I was a tutor in college for all basic academic classes (Math, English, Music, Chemistry, Physics, Public Speaking)and discovered that I teach in a rather unique way. I can cover a subject in the traditional way, but if my student doesn't understand it, I alter the way I present it until the student DOES understand it. Philosophy is the Art of asking Questions and I have found that all answers present themselves when properly motivated with the right questions. I am very easy to talk to and can be rather wordy in my responses. I try to keep the focus on the class topic, but I also encourage discussion on related topics.
