InfoI was born in Houston, Texas in 1952. My mother was a traditional housewife and my father was an immigration lawyer. My parents were world travelers, taking my brother Peter, my late sister Jane and me traveling with them around the world when we were children. The fact that I traveled internationally at such a young age made me a different person than I would otherwise have become. I learned very early, with the clarity of a child, that everyone deep down is the same.
While I didn't realize it growing up, as an adult I have come to recognize the impeccable ethics and values that were demonstrated to me as a child.
Growing up in Texas in a liberal household, I was made deeply aware of issues of social justice. My father had grown up in poverty; he was insistent that we be aware of how fortunate we were, and always attendant to the needs of those who were not. All four of my grandparents were immigrants from Eastern Europe, and had found in this country the freedom they longed for while living in oppressive circumstances. From the time I was a child I was taught the importance of America's promise, and the moral responsibility that each of us has to keep it alive and bequeath it to others. Where I saw something wrong, I was taught it’s my responsibility to make it right.

I went to public schools in Houston, and as the Sixties Revolution burst onto the scene I was eager to be part of it. From the cultural and spiritual revolution of that time, to the anti-war protests and political activism that marked the era, I was every bit a child of my generation. I spent two years at Pomona College in Claremont, California, and from there went on to experience pretty much every outwardly insignificant thing and every inwardly profound thing that’s possible.

The most consistent thing about my early Twenties was a search for spiritual understanding. I had a voracious appetite for topics of comparative religion and philosophy, and in my mid-20's I began reading a set of books called A Course in Miracles. The Course is not a religion, but rather a self-study program of spiritual psychotherapy based on universal spiritual themes. There is no dogma or doctrine; it is simply a book on how to forgive. I had no idea at the time that my study of The Course, plus writing and speaking about it, would turn into a 35-year career.
