Bio for Thomas Razzeto

Thomas Razzeto's bio and email

I have been interested in the deepest questions about life and God for as long as I can remember, starting with my very Catholic upbringing, which I felt strongly connected to until I was about 20 years old. When I was about 25, I started to look into the Seth material, as channeled by Jane Roberts. At that time, I read lots of books about Near-Death Experiences, the afterlife, spirit communication and so forth. I really liked these books and when I was around 30, I started to attended many live channeling sessions in my local area.

By the time I was 50, various people and channeled entities had been telling me for half of my life that I was divine, and I had some intuitive knowing that this was indeed true. But when Timothy Conway told me how this was true for all of us, the light bulb really turned on for me. We all find our divine nature in our Awareness. It is here where we find our True Self. Timothy's satsangs were an excellent match for me and I attended them every week from June 2005 until June 2016, when he and his wife Laura moved to Arizona.

In my life, I have always felt comfortable picking and choosing the ideas I like best so I certainly think that it's fine for you to do likewise. We all have our own point of view and this point of view will continue to develop as time unfolds. Although I don't think that it is necessary for anyone to embrace this ancient nondual wisdom, perhaps you will be inspired to take a close look at what it has to offer. Perhaps in my own way, I will be able to help people find a deeper personal peace and bring forth a warmer love.

I have taught a class for the Center for Lifelong Learning, which is a part of Santa Barbara City College, was the highest ranked community college in the United Statesin 2013. This class has the same title as my book: Living the Paradox of Enlightenment. I have spoken publicly numerous times, both in person and on the radio and in September 2012, I spoke for the prestigious lecture series, Mind and Supermind, which is run by SBCC.

I was interviewed by Rick Archer for his very popular "Buddha at the Gas Pump" (BatGap) show on April 23, 2016. Rick has interview many of today's most well-known spiritual teachers so it was an honor to have a comfortable two-hour conversation about this nondual wisdom with such a knowledgeable host. This is an excellent way to get a feel for my personality. Here's the link:

Long ago, I received a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and spent some years in software design, technical support, computer training, and computer consulting. But for whatever reason, I stepped away from the typical "worker bee" lifestyle about 30 years ago and just get by the best I can with a very simple life.

I enjoy outdoor activities including hiking, beach volleyball, running and bike riding. I also enjoy relaxing at home with a good book and meditating. And I most certainly enjoy writing and talking about my favorite subject: our true nature as this One, Divine, Open Awareness, the unborn Source and Witness of all of creation!

Thanks for considering my work. In truth, I honor your divine nature.

All my best to you, Thomas Razzeto
