He is an initiate in the Ifá/Òrìṣà tradition tradition of Yorùbá-speaking West Africa and has trained with teachers of Mahayana Buddhism, Islamic Sufism, and diverse indigenous paths, including the ways of his English, Irish, and German ancestors.

His approach to ancestor reverence and earth-honoring spirituality is heart-centered, non-dogmatic, and honoring of soul-level difference. He views ancestral and family healing as one part of a larger movement for social and earth justice. Daniel and his family live in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.
