John Stephenson, born 1945 in Los Angeles, is a writer and an artist as well as a teacher of contemporary mysticism. A long-time student of the writings of Joel S. Goldsmith, John has spent the past 19 years teaching and giving seminars based on the universal spiritual principles Mr. Goldsmith brought to the world in the middle of the last century. As a teenager, John attended his first Goldsmith class in Hawaii in 1962. The following year he moved to the Islands to study more intensively with Mr. Goldsmith, while also attending the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He was privileged to be included in the inner circle group that met every Saturday and Sunday.
John’s work as a speaker has taken him across the United States, to Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. As an author John maintains two websites where all of his work can be seen. His site, alohamystics.com has information about his class schedule, his recorded classes, and a complete list of his writings. John’s essays can be read on his blog, infinitewaytruth.com. As an artist, John’s paintings and pottery can be seen at hawaiiantattoart.com<
