Alan was born in Kentucky, and raised in (what he calls) a "Bapticostal" family. His great grandmother had a secret practice, though - one that she shared with Alan - a tiny part of which is revealed in Alan's first book, The Spell In My Pocket, published in 2016.
Alan has been practicing nature-based spirituality since his early teens. For almost 30 years, he has explored the paths of Buddhism, Hinduism, Wicca, and Contemporary Shamanism.
Currently, his personal spiritual practice consists of Shamanic Journeying, Kundalini Meditation, chanting mantra, and performing Ceremony that connects him to what he refers to interchangeably as Source, Spirit, Universe, and Mother Before Creation.
Alan's flagship online course Dancing The Ghost teaches people to discover their Power Animals and Spirit Teachers through Shamanic Journeying so that they can awaken and step into a life of power, passion, and purpose.
He says his own purpose is, " ... to be a hollow bone through which Spirit flows, and to live a life of passion in pursuit of helping others do the same."
Alan is an Author, Shamanic Instructor, Shamanic Practitioner, the High Priest of a local Wiccan Coven, trained in Hypnotherapy, a Certified Past Life Regression Therapist, and a trained Life Coach.
Alan currently lives in Kentucky, with his Life Partner, and their cat, Gerty.
