About The Four Mentors

THE PROFESSOR:  Oscar Ichazo
(July 24, 1931 – March 26, 2020)
http://Arica.org

A spiritual innovator and founder of the Arica School (1971), Oscar Ichazo mastered and taught a global heritage of spiritual practices. He spent his final years with his wife Sarah, living in Maui, writing about the history, practice, and lineage of transcendental teachings.

THE GURU: Franklin Jones /Adi Da
(Nov 3, 1939 – Nov 27, 2008)
https://adidam.org/

(AKA Bubba Free John, Da Free John, Da Love-Ananda, Da Kalki, Da Avadhoota, Da Avabhasa, Adi Da Love-Ananda Samraj.) He is the founder of a new (approach to) religion. An internet search will reveal both high praise and harsh criticism, both of which contain elements of truth. In later life, until his death, he turned his creative insight into visual art.

THE WARRIOR-PRIEST: Michael Bookbinder
(June 17, 1944 – February 1999)

A gifted teacher, Michael Bookbinder founded a loosely knit organization called Search & Rescue International. He has no Wikipedia page or publications. He shared practical tools to make a positive difference for many people.

Publications:  The Warrior-Priest, was solely an oral teacher. But some of his practices and perspectives found their way into a number of my books, seminars, and trainings, expressed in my own way and through my own filters.

 
 
 

THE SAGE: David K. Reynolds
(Sept 28, 1940)
https://constructiveliving1.weebly.com/

David Reynolds earned a Ph.D. at UCLA in Anthropology with a specialization in psychology. He integrated Morita Therapy and Naikan into a lifeway he calls Constructive Living, the title of his best-known book and the audio program that drew me to his work. He lives a quiet and constructive life with his wife Lynn in Coos Bay, Oregon.

Authors, Sages and Spiritual Authorities: A Compendium


The following lists of spiritual teachers lends perspective and highlights my mentors as four among many. Resonant with the proverb, “There is only one Light but many lamps,” insight and wisdom shine through many imperfect vessels, some of whom magnify, clarify, or focus the light of reality; others who sometimes distort or obscure it. These teachers are not necessarily the best by any objective measure, but for many and varied reasons, are the best known, at least to a Western audience in the early twenty-first century — and they a small sampling:

While the preceding lists can be overwhelming, they are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. A far greater number of role models abound, people from every walk of life who don’t appear in such lists. Maybe even someone like you, whose quiet example influences family, friends and colleagues through your living example of vulnerability, openness, and a humility bred of perspective. Whatever role we play in life, we can, each and all, touch the lives of others.
