Nathan was born in Detriot, MI to a loving,
though often dysfunctional family of atheists and agnostics.
He was raised to be a "free-thinker," and as a
child he never had any connection toor interest inreligion
However, at 16 years of age Nathan realized that he was,
in a very real way, the sole source of all his problems
and suffering, so he decided to do whatever it took to get
out of his own way and to become the person that he wanted
to beno games, no excuses, no more playing the victim.
Since that time, Nathan has searched tirelessly for the
truth behind his desires and motivations, and ultimately
of his own nature, believing that this was only way to find
permanent relief from the pain in his heart.
In college, after discovering that electrical engineering
is mind-numbingly boring, Nathan graduated with a B.A. in
philosophy, and thereafter he entered the Peace Corps in
which he taught mathematics to 8th and 9th grade students
in the West African country of Guinea.
Having been raised in a middle-class, white American family,
Nathan wanted to challenge his own assumptions about how
the world really worked by seeing, first hand, how most
human beings still livein utter poverty.
Nathan was deeply affected by his two years in the Peace
Corps, but by the end of his service he still felt that
he was needed far more in his country of origin. Since the
United States is the most wealthy country in the world,
he believed that by helping Americans heal themselves and
come to Wholeness, they would then be in the best position
to make the entire world a better place.
Upon his return to California, Nathan immediately started
taking classes in the Chinese arts of chi-gung, nei-gung,
ba gua, and tai chi. This 3-year apprenticeship gave him
a much-needed foundation in understanding how subtle energies
work in the body.
A year into these studies, Nathan met a Reiki Master who
taught him how to channel Universal Life Energy (Rei-ki),
and because Reiki is taught through the direct transfer
of consciousness, despite his skeptical nature Nathan learned
to believe a bit more in the "magic" that is all around
us. The following year he undertook over 100 hours of training
as a Life Coach, which taught him the power of simply holding
space for others to discover their own truth.
In 2002 Nathan encountered VortexHealing®
Divine Energy Therapy, an energetic healing modality
that gave him a whole new understanding of healing magic,
and upon which most of his healing practice (and personal
spirituality) is based. VortexHealing is a very extensive
modality, and even after 13 years and over 1500 hours of
intensive training, he continues to learn more all the time.
Nathan is also one of the only students of VortexHealing
to have taken every training/class offered. In the Autumn
of 2006, with his teacher's personal guidance Nathan experienced
what his teacher calls "Basic Awakening" a
term he coined to indicate that even after the core of the
ego dies, much more work still needs to be done. This radicalyet
still somehow ordinaryshift in consciousness has only
deepened Nathan's commitment to service to others. To learn
more about Nathan's experience of Basic Awakening, please
Although it was a long journey that continues to this very
day, Nathan has learned to live in alignment with his own
deepest Truth, and he credits this approach with the success
he has had in building a prosperous healing practice that
now runs on its own steam. Wishing to give others the opportunity
to create the change they want to see in their lives, Nathan
teaches courses in Divine Prosperity via tele-seminars.
Now living in Oakland, CA, Nathan spends his
time meditating, authoring eBooks, going on walks in nature,
spending time with his life-partner, taking healing classes
to expand his repertoire, offering individual and group
healing sessions, and giving tele-seminars to help others
live in accorance with what he calls Divine Prosperity.
