Born in Ontario, Ken came from a happy and stable home, and had all the privileges associated with a middle class white male upbringing. Ken has struggled with issues of self-image, self-worth, adequacy, sexuality, & anger management. Ken realizes there is always trauma to work through, regardless of upbringing; no upbringing is perfect. Ken has practiced meditation off and on for 20 years. Since Ken’s first experience with ayahuasca he has explored a wide gamut of other medicines (Iboga, etc). Ken is Rita’s husband, and an accomplished playwright theatre editor, business consultant & visual artist.
