About this author

Author of six natural meditation books beginning with Meditations of John Muir (2001); also Life After Faith (2010), My Address is a River (2010), the novel Jesus and John Muir (coming in 2010) and other webpublished works including poetry, essays and a childrens' book. Teacher and social worker in the SF Bay Area (former minister and interfaith chaplain). He appears as the "Nature Chaplain" on YouTube.


This summer I am publishing three new works that are very diverse in style and content.

Life After Faith, reflections on my journey out of Christianity and leaving my ordination for a rational, freethinking "natural spirituality," is available now.

My Address is a River, a collection of 70 stories drawn from my 25 years as an interfaith chaplain, will be out in early August.
