Michael has supported the launch of multiple successful startup companies in the field of transformational education and, most recently, worked for five years as the CEO of Globalish Institute, a privately owned think tank in Los Angeles – an organization that globally recognized philosopher Ken Wilber called “startlingly original work of sheer genius.” In 2016, Michael left his CEO position to create Richardson-Borne Institute, a think tank with degree programs that focus on advancing the field of Applied Awakening.
Michael studied philosophy on special student status at Oxford University and holds degrees in Biology and English Literature. His primary spiritual support came from Alan Shelton, a retired CPA who spent a decade in India where he studied with Advaita teacher Ramesh Balsekar, the translator for renowned teacher Nisargadatta Maharaj.
Besides his work, Michael enjoys listening to a wide range of music on Spotify & supporting his favorite sports teams – particularly the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Path of Non-separation is the pre-cursor to Applied Awakening. It is a contemporary self inquiry process for people passionate about taking a real world journey to realize the true self.
