I’m ever seeking out the deeper meaning of life. Is there a way to clarity, insight and influence?
Yes. Since a very young age my daily life has been dominated by the most fascinating question: Is a sage with unique intelligence and abilities real? In my experience the answer to that question is a proven, resounding Yes. After the serious school of hard knocks I tried the Zen thing as a monk for 4.5 years and then became head of security for a major retreat center created by the Guru of The Beatles; Maharishi Mahesh Yogi the founder of transcendental meditation. Moving to Colorado, the center of Buddhism in America, I had the chance to do advanced meditation training with The Dalai Lama on his visits.
Then I was the cook for a legendary Taoist priest, Qigong and Kung Fu Master; Master Chen who was raised on Mt. Wudang; the birthplace of Chi Power.
Since boxing and marital arts was a hobby from childhood MMA became the next evolution. So, eventually a lil success as a fight coach for MMA. I keep tryin everything; lol.
Now, I live in a place where there are over 20 major monasteries all within a few miles. One of the Karmapa's main monasteries is here (a deeper meditation lineage than the Dalai Lama), one of the main Japanese Shumei monasteries is here, a big Ashram, A Zen temple founded by the international Zen legend Shunru Suzuki; etc...etc.
But-the best thing that I can say to you if you are considering 'The Evolution' course is that I'm an expert at nothing and love to engage new possibilities while meeting people where they are and working on issues together.
I do not have the solution; that's clear. Together we might be able to experience a win/win to just find out a new angle, some fresh insight and most of all measurable results.
This program is a natural way of transformation and represents the synthesis of all I've experienced: Distilled, simplified and based on customization according to what your best is-The quotes, beliefs, memories, dreams for you future, ways to connect with life that you choose.
I might be able to offer some practical options. However, what we focus on here is finding what really are uniquely your choices..
A true 'path' is born according to what works for you as an individual. This method just might be what you have always sought.
The Evolution process (Creating Moments that Ripple) is utilized by Olympic sports affiliates, hospitals, businesses, senior facilities and by people from virtually every walk of life. There is amazing legacy of time tested, lasting results.HERE.
I'm an author of 12 books; meditation, inner energy and lifelong martial art enthusiast. The greatest adventure is the witnessing of hearts, minds and bodies transformed. That's the real miracle we all need. Its such honor go about some time, energy and efforts with others toward into this result.
There are programs for everyone. Healing lives is not a business. Still, the win/win of mutual support is appreciated when possible.
Much Love, William

Born into a wealthy, highly educated family. Everything was in place, the best schools and influences but William had his own ideas. Always interested in serving the poor and exploring mysteries he drifted further and further away into his own little world. The fascination with, geniuses, mysteries and martial arts began at 8 years old. Much to the dismay of his family as the years went on the search intensified and so did his personal crisis. Thinking that fitness was the at 15 years old he became a certified fitness instructor and was employed helping to bring fitness to Miami Dolphins football players at the local gym in Ft. Lauderdale ‘Sportsrooms.’ Sill, his inner angst continued and feeling lost for solutions William experienced ‘The dark nights/years of the soul’ rebelling against life and law living in homeless shelters, jails and prisons for many years. Finally, in desperation he reached out to Zen and became an ordained lay monk for 4.5 years then created a school for martial arts and community outreach center in Philadelphia, Pa.
Next up was becoming a monastic as well as the head of security for a major Transcendental Meditation center in Avon Park Florida. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi popularized his mediation technique with famous students such as The Beatles and Clint Eastwood. There, he found a union between science and inner healing methods. Many university studies supported the astounding claims of the benefits of mediation. This led him to T.M.’s U.S.A. headquarters in Fairfield Iowa for further practice and study. Now there were two opposites functioning; the strict discipline of Zen/Martial Arts and the free loving transcendence of T.M.
Once again it just didn’t seem to answer enough questions or provide the needed help. It seemed that both these systems were dissociative and lacking in practical application to help people’s lives in deep suffering. So, he went back to his roots to learn more about ‘the inner chi’ by becoming the head cook for Master Chen and his core students; Master Chen, author of ‘The Master Within’ (Which William got published for Master Chen,) and legendary Taoist Priest and Qigong/Kung Fu master who was raised on mount Wudang; the birthplace of ‘Chi Power.’ Further initiations with whom the Dalai Lama said is ‘The greatest living meditation master:’ Drubwang Rinpoche. Retreats and initiations with Ammachi, Thich Naht Hahn etc…The training’s go on and are actually too numerous too mention.
Finally, he realized that that a persons true path to wellness and success is already within them and needs to be elicited by a totally personalized approach. So, he decided to go off into nature by himself to codify a new method that would help people heal and enlightened in a new and modern way.
Finally after vision questing alone in the mountains many times without food or water ‘The Evolution’ method was created combining all the best techniques to improve a persons life quickly and efficiently. Everything is user friendly, demystified and combined into one power packed, simplified program. Soon, hospitals, sports teams, schools and individuals of every type of background were benefitting. The Evolution legacy continues today. It is based on the needs of the individual with results measured with biofeedback equipment to make sure the individual and/or group is benefitting in real time.
