While he consciously started pursuing spiritual development as a teenager and has practiced and taught beginning to advanced courses on meditation and Vedic philosophy since 1972, he has also practiced law for most of his adult life. He had his first Awakening experience in 1976 and since then has spent most of his life (including 27 years practicing law) happy for no reason, but not fully aware of the gift he had been given.
Within a little more than a year of meeting Sri Bhagavan and becoming a Oneness Blessing Giver, Grace unveiled the Truth of his experience, bringing the process of Awakening and God Realization into sharp focus.
Peter continues to practice law and with his wife, Thayer, both Oneness Trainers, hosts Oneness events regularly in Mill Valley, CA.

On this call, Peter talks about his journey, addressing in particular his own experience with a fear that many of us have, that Awakening and God Realization might change our experience of life so radically that we can no longer earn a living, no longer support a family, no longer relate to our children or spouse. He is living proof that the fear is unfounded.
