A Bio from Kess Frey
I was born Jan. 22, 1945 and grew up in Eagle Rock, CA (North Los Angeles). I attended Eagle Rock junior/senior high school, PasadenaCity College and graduated in Psychology from the University of California at Irvine in 1968.

Since 1965, I’ve studied Eastern and Western philosophy, psychology and religion with special interest in meditation and depth psychology. My main spiritual teachers have been Lama Anagarika Govinda (German), Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche (Tibetan), Swami Amar Jyoti (East Indian) and, since 1989, Father Thomas Keating (American).

I’ve lived in Anchorage, Alaska since 1983 where I worked with school age children for 20 years. I currently offer introductory centering prayer workshops, facilitate prayer groups and silent retreats, and am active in prison ministry.

The desire to write came to me spontaneously in my late teens when I awoke in the middle of the night feeling charged with energy and experiencing a flow of ideas and inspiration in my consciousness. I didn’t know where this was coming from but was uplifted by it and have been drawn to writing ever since. This inspiration is a gift that has continued to guide me from within, giving meaning, depth and purpose to my life. I believe such inner guidance is there for everyone, if we’ll simply take time to slow down and be receptive to it. I believe we are all connected to the divine Source of life and creation in the deepest center of our being
