They combine profound meaning with light humor. Tom has a special gift for helping people resolve troubling issues and restore self-esteem and inner peace. Tom began meditating in 1968 while enrolled in an intense graduate program at Yale University. He was struggling not only with the curriculum, but also with anger and a battered down self-esteem. Meditation clarified issues and elucidated the paths forward. Tom then completed the full PhD Program in record time.
