~  OtherWiseWorld Services Overview  ~ 





I offer sessions integrating Astrology, Human Design, The Gene Keys, & the Gurdjieffian Enneagram for anyone who is interested in evoking the best version of themselves and the moment they currently inhabit.


Further, I offer follow-on a coaching/activation series, tailored to you,  that take the insights and revelations to the street, so to speak, in real-time with your needs, current challenges, and aspirations.





My perspective is evolutionary where I see life as a continuum of possibilities, rather than as mechanically predicted courses of events.


I assert that any planetary influence, sign, and configuration has its most exalted version, its mundane everyday expression, and its shadow expression – and that these different frequencies are more a question of evolved choice rather than dictated from without. This model is reflected in the Vedic teaching of the 3 Gunas: sattvic, rajasic, tamasic.



I am generally both a practical and playful person and believe the session experience should be both enjoyable and relational, and its practical effect discernible.


While Rumi's saying: "Language is a tailors' shop where nothing fits",  is a personal favorite,  -  I am equally devoted to the adroit use of language to consciously inform all aspects of our being and to elevate our state.



My foundational sessions, available by Zoom, phone, or in-person last about 100 minutes, plus a short break in the middle to integrate, and I ask $195. I spend about 30-40 minutes preparing for the session which includes evoking your responses in advance to what would be hoped for outcomes from the time spent.


I do accommodate anyone who is sincere and will receive what they can gift back, should that fee not be workable. I encourage, for those who need and wish, follow on coaching/mentoring for integrating the new understandings and putting them into actionable form. For follow-on and more expanded offerings, see my Menu of Services.




The knowledge and insights gained in a reading are powerful and potentially life-altering.


That said, there can exist in these affairs 'the workshop syndrome' - - a temporary buzz followed by back to business as before. 


I therefore heartily favor focused follow-on coaching to both access and embody your unique magical gift, and to apply it practically on the dance floor of life. Borrowing from the Spanish poet - Garcia Lorca, I call that your 'Duende'. For more, see my Menu of Services.





I started out as a child and graduated from Northwestern University, missing a summa cum laude GPA by a fraction due to an F in a graduate Buddhism course where I challenged the teacher to embody the words he spoke. He became infuriated.


I spent 25 years in a Gurdjieffian community, where there was an emphasis on observing planetary influence and enneagram structures on personal mechanics that arise in consciousness. For 22 years,  I have practiced astrology and for 12 years, the Human Design System, where I cross-fertilize between the two.


I owned a successful executive search firm in the San Franciso Bay Area working with the engineer-poets of Silicon Valle and was trained in Life Coaching during the mid-'90s when the field was just beginning.


I was a studio musician for a short time in Chicago, and remain an avid guitarist with decent classical and improvisatory chops.


I love golden retrievers, raspberries, figs, Old-World cafes, excellent design, good manners, and un-random acts of senseless beauty.
