He emphasizes the linguistic connection between the words “god” and “good” in reference to the application of mystical and psychic abilities.

Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series.

For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.
