Come meet our Happy Family!
Tom's inherent fascination and interconnectivity with nature, the arts, world culture and self-expression has led him on the path of bringing this passionate vision called Present Moment Retreat into the reality that many experience today. He is a Midwesterner, born and raised in Minneapolis Minnesota, with a naturally curious and creative personality. As a result he has been involved in the field of fine arts, design and building since he can remember. While his background is in design, painting and music; somewhere along the way he needed to understand the world of business to stay afloat. He owned/managed several retail stores and a small wellness product company over the years; then one day awakened to the discovery that being in service to others in an altruistic manner was to be his focus…his purpose. Hence the seed was planted for co-creating Present Moment Retreat.
"Through your love for each other, through learning the art of making one person happy, you learn to express your love for the whole of humanity and all beings. Please help us develop the curriculum for the institute for the happiness of one person. Don't wait until we open the school. You can begin practicing right away."
