Author Biography

Paul Dunion has been working as a psychological healer and teacher for the past thirty years. He has devoted himself to making peace with mystery and the lessons involved. His teachings focus on what it means to bring deeper levels of truth and compassion to our individual narratives. His lectures and writings explore how to organize a life around authentic personal empowerment and renewal of the soul. Since adolescence, he has been a student of philosophy, advocating for a vision informed by the heart. He is the founder of COMEGA (Connecticut Men's Gathering) and Boys to Men of Norwich, CT (a community mentoring project for teenage boys). He is the author of two books: Temptation in the House of the Lord, and Shadow Marriage -A Descent into Intimacy.
