Welcome


Welcome to my website! I am grateful for the opportunity to connect with you and reflect on those things that glorify our Creator and make all of us more fully alive. In my blog I’ll be sharing insights on spirituality, creativity, human potential, faith communities, animals, music and much more. I hope you’ll find something helpful in my books, blog or lectures. On the calendar page you’ll find my speaking schedule. I would love to meet you in person, especially if you are visiting New Orleans. Meanwhile, as we say in my former home of Hawaii:

Keep surfing. Keep learning. Keep loving.

Much aloha,

Father Bill
