Growing up in rural North Carolina, Dr. Williams developed a lifelong love and appreciation of nature. This love grew into an interest in the outdoors and eventually led him into the Boy Scout organization where he earned the highest award of Eagle Scout.
Shortly after this achievement, his family moved to northeast Georgia where he attended college and earned his Doctorate degree in Chiropractic Medicine. Since then, he has maintained a successful clinical practice for 40 years while being involved in multiple community projects.
As a valued member of the community, he helped to organize the Chamber of Commerce in his home town in Florida. For many years he co-created and maintained a progressive bookstore providing much-needed access to books on esoteric and spiritual subjects.
While managing his full-time clinical practice, he also gave weekly talks, held thousands of meditation classes, and offered continuing education classes to the public.
Now, he is combining his years of knowledge and public service to create a new model and avenue for those seeking healing, meditation, and a way to improve the lives of themselves and others.
