QUESTION: Why does the school have a new and different name?

ANSWER: After nearly 40 years living in Santa Cruz, working with people from all over the world through my books, classes, consultations and travels, it was time for me to again live in an urban environment. The school and I relocated to the East Bay Area (Albany-Berkeley-Oakland-Alameda-San Leandro-Hayward-Castro Valley and so on).


When spelled with the letter Q, the word Qabalah refers to the Universal Qabalah. The Universal Qabalah is a nonsexist, nonracist, nonhomophobic and non-denominational system of esoteric and practical wisdom.
Qabalah is a Western mystery school tradition that bridges the inner traditions of the East and West. Study and practical application of the teachings of the Qabalah, and its symbolic representations the Tree of Life and Tarot, may be used to enhance the teachings of all spiritual disciplines.


In the evolutionary chain of forms, we humans are the first form in that evolving chain to have self-consciousness added to the sub-conscious forms of the mineral, plant and animal realms. A creature with upright posture, opposing thumbs for manipulating physical things and a separate sense of "I"ness or individuality. The "lower" three kingdoms evolve through physical adaptation to changing physical conditions such as of heat, cold, moisture, dryness, availability of food and changes in predators. Humankind differs in that our transformations are brought about by resolving differences between other individuals and groups. In time, such experiences assist us to realize our unity or oneness.
Although we do have a ways to go in this plan, the pattern for doing this is definitely in place! It is essential to note that: the destruction of our supportive environment aka the Earth and It's creatures, offers the evolutionary juice to make us realize our mutual responsibility in protecting and preserving It--and in doing so, ourselves. The teaching systems that support this kind of evolutionary change, subscribe to and facilitate the addition of another level of consciousness, called "cosmic or super-consciousness.” In this state, individuals no longer need to have a physical body to function. This is the place wherein we find the Masters/Mistresses of Wisdom, Planetary Logos, Solar Logos (the Self-revealing thought, will of Divinity) and the like.
One of the foremost purposes of human existence is to create and maintain a bridge between sub-conscious life--the animal, vegetable, mineral realms--and super-conscious existence and expression. Self-consciousness, the awareness of the Divinity within each one of us and all of creation is, that bridge. This acknowledges and celebrates both, The One in the all and the all in The One!

• TAROT CONSULTATIONS: I am available to work in person as well as by distance-phone and Skype.

Because I believe the future to be set in sand, not stone, I do not make specific predictions. A Tarot Consultation is a highly interactive process that reveals the your (the consultee's) future tendencies, sheds light on new possibilities and suggests, reiterates and affirms your options.

Consultations offer an expanded perspective on your questions in order to achieve greater understanding, decision-making, problem-solving and Self-healing. My aim is to facilitate and enhance your ability to perceive, "the big in the little." In other words, to integrate your personal issues with universal and natural laws, truths and principles. This is done by using the tarot to re-view your past history, present experiences and future prospects with regard to your questions. It is this way, that I facilitate your ability to co-create a future of conscious choice, rather than one of unconscious chance.

My specialties are: relationships, career and spiritual development. For further information:
