He became a successful professional guitar player, but during the harmonic convergence of 1987, he heard a Calling and began to take his life in a different direction. At the beginning of the 1990s, he moved to Maine, where he underwent a powerful spiritual awakening.
As instructed, he slowly and carefully wrote Disappearance over a period of nine years. In the fall of 2003, after much encouragement from other speakers and students, Gary began to present talks and workshops in public. His speaking career took off remarkably fast, and today he lectures internationally. Combining a disarming sense of humor with radical, cutting-edge metaphysical information and experiential exercises, this acclaimed teacher of A Course in Miracles has been described as one of the most interesting and courageous spiritual speakers in the world.
During the last few years Gary has been busy teaching (and sometimes introducing) A Course in Miracles in 26 countries and 44 states, with multiple visits to many of those countries and states. He has done hundreds of radio and print interviews, appeared in 7 documentary movies, recorded 50 podcasts, won the Infinity Foundation Spirit Award.
