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.
