Timber Hawkeye, Author of Buddhist Boot Camp and Faithfully Religionless

Richmond, VA - USA: In his books, Buddhist Boot Camp and Faithfully Religionless, Timber Hawkeye offers a non-sectarian approach to being at peace with the world, both within and around us. His intention is to awaken, enlighten, enrich, and inspire. Discover the difference between feelings and emotions, the disparity between truths and facts, and the countless benefits of mindful living. When his pursuit of happiness in Corporate America feels counterproductive, Timber Hawkeye escapes the fluorescent-lit hell of his cubicle in Seattle and sets out to fully embrace the stress-free lifestyle of Hawaii. Intrigued and curious about what people believe (and why they believe what they do), he questions everything he ever thought was true and discovers the beauty of letting go. Learn more.
