I offer consulting on creating and building both Astronomical Gardens and Sunwheels (i.e. stone circle calendars with astronomical alignments). This consulting can be done over the phone, over e-mail, or in person. Please contact me for more information.

I offer life coaching and help individuals live with faith and gratitude, accepting what life has to offer and living joyfully with what is. See my blog "Living Joyfully With What Is" for a taste. Please contact me for more information.

The retreats I offer include instruction on how to build a Sunwheel, astronomical garden, or stone circle calendar with astronomical alignments. Contact me for more information.

I give power-point talks to public groups on the following topics:

  • "Sunwheels and Stone Circle Calendars Around the World"
  • "Moon Teachings for the Masses -- The Major Lunar Standstill of 2006"
    Contact me for arrangements.

    I answer questions from the public regarding Sunwheels and calendar sites around the world, the intricacies of the Moon's cycles (lunar phases, eclipses, and the 18.6-year cycle leading to the Major Lunar Standstill), the cause of the seasons, and the subtle peculiarities in the times of sunrise and sunset throughout the year. Just send me an e-mail.

    I am creating a week-long camp on "Astronomy and Spirituality in Our Daily Lives" to be held in Montana . This camp will enable transformational experiences of both the astronomical and spiritual Universes, including:

    I plan to begin offering these camps in the summer of 2009. Please contact me if you are interested in participating.
