Who am I?
Who are we all?
On the most unspeakably
I began meditating in my teens. Once I was introduced to the idea of Enlightenment- of being At One with everything, I was literally possessed to pursue that.
The deepest theme of my life has been the resolving the seeming conflict and tension between the paths of:
being at peace, content and happy under all circumstances / feeling whole and complete - not wanting or needing anything
the path of following one's desires and feelings
For decades, I vacillated between wanting to be a monk and wanting to live a life of passion, inspiration and fun.
At last, someway, somehow, those two paths no longer feel in opposition. I cultivate deep peace and acceptance of what is, and experience peace and serenity under most circumstances, and simultaneously follow my heart ruthlessly as a creative passionate being.
What I came to realize is that I am most effective following my passions and desires when I am at peace and unattached. When I am free and unconcerned with outcome - I found it was a lot easier to create a wonderful outcome! When I realized this I could almost here the Divine laughing and smiling at me and a phrase came to me, “OH, Truth feels Good!”
I love working with people who are passionate about these two deep drives in all of us - the drive to be at peace and free and the drive to live a creative vibrant life.
My path has been an ongoing initiation. I have face nearly every challenge that can come one's way in life - and made it through - by some mysterious combination of grace, grit and my own efforts. Compassion for myself and others comes pretty naturally and as a result of having suffered so much on the path of seeking to be at peace.
Having faced so many different challenges. I am well equipped to support others on various stages of their path. To this day, I am constantly studying (and inventing) new modalities for expanding consciousness, healing, awakening and embodying Divinity.
A few of the main“Modalities” I draw from:

(I have had quite the dance with names- my legal name is Arthur Burton, however as a child I was called Burt as nickname, then Paul, my middle name, then Seth and Truth as "spiritual names." I answer to any of the above!)
