John along with his wife Ina were two of the original founders of WLC. The Gallagher’s along with the Dye’s pooled their resources to purchase the land. They too had a vision of a Spiritual Center and moved that Vision into reality.
John was a very deep thinker, a philosopher, who had studied and practiced a number of metaphysical and mystical paths. John could see far beyond the physical reality into the dimensions that most of us are only dimly aware of. He was able to convey what he knew about these unseen dimensions to many in a way that we too could a least get a glimpse of these unseen worlds.
John was a huge influence in adding a number of very diverse people and groups to the experiences and reality of WLC. Open to all types of teachings, he brought in a number of the teachers, who brought in their students that came to define the experience of the WLC gatherings.
An avid learner, even in his later years when he was barely mobile, John continued to learn and expand upon what he knew. He also had a way of bringing out things that others knew, even when they did not know they knew, and a way of encouraging people to present what they became aware of to others.
John has passed a number of years now, but certainly lives on.
I am certain many can remember spending hours with John as he taught of his direct experiences with other dimensions and realities. John had a manner could get those around him to actually experiences those realities.
