Bill travelled widely in Africa, the Middle East and Asia and developed an interest in different ways people heal themselves and each other, through a variety of activities from yoga, meditation, qigong, music, dance and other forms of creative expression and therapeutic body work. Bill’s interests continue to be voyages of self-discovery and self-development that hopefully enable a better understanding of self and others.
