Steve has  B. A.’s in Film and Psychology from San Francisco State University. For eight years he taught classes at Sierra College, Rocklin, CA through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. He always wanted to teach “Metaphysics 101” but instead created a class called Emerson as a Spiritual Pioneer. He also taught classes like The Spiritual Dimension in Film, Great Films of the 1950s and Writing Your Autobiography.
Steve taught Metaphysics at the Mandala Labyrinth Center in Camichael, CA, especially Meditation and “The Spiritual Path of Tarot”. He put a lot of those lessons together and wrote a book called Tarot Awareness: Exploring the Spiritual Path published by Llewellyn in 2000.
Today, he is immersing himself in Unity, and in finding echoes of Emerson in Charles Filmore’s writing (and his Emerson’s quotes), he felt he could create a class from his explorations into the Twelve Powers and Emerson’s essays and journal entries. He is also composing prayers and meditative guidance for each class, reflecting the words of Emerson and Fillmore.
Steve has been influenced in his independent spiritual studies by various mystics and thinkers: Ernest Holmes, Vedanta and Swami Vivekananda, Thoreau, Deepak Chopra and many others.
He is also a Certified Hypnotherapist and taught a class at Sierra College called Meditation for Modem Living.
