Born in the Midwest and raised in San Diego, California, Gary Douglas creator of Access Consciousness, describes his childhood as a typical television type, middle class family. "I'm so 'white bread', I really lived the 'Leave it to Beaver' childhood."
Gary explains that he's always been on a spiritual path, seeking deeper answers to life's mysteries."When I was nine, I decided I wanted to go to church, but my parents didn't. I walked to church with my little sister every Sunday."
"My dad died when I was 17. I learned from his life that working yourself to death for your family doesn't necessarily provide everything they need. I also learned that I had to work, and work hard, for anything I wanted."
Later, in college, Douglas ran into a former Sunday school teacher who remembered him and said she knew he wouldn't find what he was looking for in church, but that she hoped he would find the answers he was looking for.
Gary describes the creation of Access Consciousness as a series of revelations and insights. "What we now call Access Consciousness started coming through in about July 1990 when I was a successful realtor in Santa Barbara, California, I began channeling information about points on the head that act like a computer bank for all our thoughts, feelings, emotions, considerations, attitudes, decisions - anything that we decided that was important at anytime in this life or any other lifetime. I felt that maybe this could be a class for massage therapists or bodyworkers. I came home and called four friends to come to a class on energy work. That was the first Access Consciousness class."
"Since then, it's been a co-creation with the more than 2,000 people who have come to the classes. The process keeps getting more simple and yet more powerful every time we conduct a workshop."
Gary Douglas is the father of 4 children and 1 grandchild. He lives in Santa Barbara, California.
He conducts personal consultations at his office and by telephone with clients throughout the United States and North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Orient. He and a score of Access Consciousness facilitators conduct Access Consciousness workshops throughout the world.
