Jeff started his journey after his parents’ divorce at age 13 with alcohol, weed and of all things, screwdrivers.  By high school he was living a double life, bi-sexual but hanging with the gangbangers.  Unable to manage high school behaviorally, heavy into pills and booze he disappeared to Nashville with an older lover.  He returned, confused and drug addicted with HIV.  He launched into a six year period of mental illness, delusions, hospitalizations and stints of 12 step sobriety. After multiple tries he has found a stable sense of self, some supportive friends and contented sobriety.  His Buddhist practice has helped him to understand the nature of his miraculous transformation.
