John has studied world religions throughout his life. He holds a B.A. in Comparative Religions from the University of South Florida, and an M.A. in History of Religions from Florida State University.

His workshops and lectures are offered in personal growth centers, yoga schools, churches, hospitals, hospices, corporations, colleges, and universities. He is also available for one-on-one consultations. He currently resides in northern New Jersey
