With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale Donald Walsch spent the majority of his life thriving professionally, yet searching for spiritual meaning before beginning his now-famous Conversation with God series. These books have been translated into 37 languages, touching millions and inspiring important changes in people's day-to-day lives. Seven of his 27 books have reached the New York Times bestsellers list.
Neale lives in Ashland, Oregon, with his wife, poet Em Claire. In 2001 he founded Humanity's Team, which he describes as a worldwide civil-rights movement for the soul (HumanitysTeam.org). In 2005 he began work on putting into place a global education program, The School of the New Spirituality (SchooloftheNewSpirituality.com). In 2010 he created the CwG Spiritual Mentoring Program for individuals seeking to bring their highest spiritual understanding into their everyday lives.
