Adam spent much of his childhood on a bicycle exploring Harvard Square, absorbing the rich cultural ferment of the 1970s. Unsatisfied with the socio-economic offerings of the early 1980s, at 18 he took his vows of renunciation, poverty and celibacy and lived as a monk for several years, studying massage and healing work while living in a small but vibrant community above a funky jazz and reggae club.

The later 1980s found him studying Hatha Yoga with Eddie Modestini–a practice of solo-healing he experienced as a complement to the work of giving and receiving healing touch with others–and discovering music, spending 15 years playing bass in The Equalites, a reggae-rock band he co-founded. 

Adam was blessed to spend many years playing bass in support of sacred chant pioneer Krishna Das, and later with Bhakti Yoga legend Shyamdas, both of whom nourished his love of sacred sound and the yoga of devotion.
