is a writer, teacher and speaker who splits his time between the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina and the majestic Colorado Rockies. His personal journey of awakening began at the age of 30 on an awe-inspiring trip to Maui, Hawaii. It was there on that enchanted island where the profound healing power of the Earth spoke through to his heart and helped him overcome a period of alcohol abuse. After returning home from that transformative experience, Forrest became interested in the spiritual traditions of the Far East and began to immerse himself in the teachings of Buddhist, Hindu, and Taoist mystics. Today, Forrest spends his time guiding others to look within and become the best versions of themselves. He is the author of the Hippie Revival and Collected Writings and his forthcoming book, COVID-19 and Humanity’s Spiritual Awakening is now available on Amazon .
