Welcome to the journey ...

... from ignorance to truth, from darkness to light.

so we might get to know each other and, just maybe, share some time and space on life's great journey.

I've always wanted to help create a better world. If you have struggled with the same dream, the same call, I'm hoping, somehow, this website will help us find each other.

I invite you to read my book, Touching The Rainbow Ground, so we might begin our journey together "on the same page." ... Paul Weiss

Our Vision

Leo Tolstory wrote that life is a journey "from ignorance to truth, from darkness to light." We're all on that journey ... together ... and I believe we're expected to help one another find truth and move into the light.

Wild Doves RestI'm blessed to own a beautiful chalet in the middle of the woods on the side of a mountain in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It has given me a great way to share my love for the planet with friends and strangers and to help them - and me - find more truth about the beauty of our planet and about many other things and to move further into the light.

In 2011 the chalet was offered as a vacation rental and enjoyed instant success. Starlit Chalet hosts folks from Europe, Canada, South America and from all over the USA. Our guests are people in love with nature and thrilled to experience the magnificence of Yosemite and the Sierra.

Less busy has been the chalet's use as a retreat center, Wild Doves Rest. I offer it as a place of retreat and, if interest is there, to lead Vision Retreats. In 30+ years of trying to change the world for children, I have learned the power of a clear vision and am always ready to share that understanding with others on the journey.

And if you're not into exploring Yosemite or spending a weekend in quiet reflexion, how does Argentine Tango sound? Tango Chalet has been another way to use the chalet to move from ignorance to truth, darkness to light, in the world of dance and music. To explore the beauty of this extraordinary dance in a place of great natural beauty. We have a tango floor in the Great Room.

My Journey

For 2 decades, I've been producing media to describe the steps of my journey, to write about and make visual to others my thoughts and concerns about the planet, especially about children ...

It has been my experience that, when we truly need a helping hand, an inspiring word, a new viewpoint, someone always appears. We may not recognize them, but they are always there! The books listed here are written by some of the guides who appeared and lighted my way. This list is provided so that you may more easily recognize that moment when a helping hand, inspiring word or new light appears in your life.

Loving The Planet

The more we get in touch with the beauty, the art, the great gift of nature, the more we are moved to protect it. And love the One who created it. Also see Gifts of Wonder on my blog, Rainbow Ground.
