William Sol is a father, husband, and lifelong inner peace-seeking Washingtonian. He has spent his career in community mental health and the child welfare system. William has had the unique experience of homeschooling his adopted children, who have varying degrees of special abilities and needs. He is a practitioner of meditation and, since his teens, a student of esoteric spirituality/psychology. His interests include advances in psychotherapy through the application of integral and transpersonal psychology; Buddhist/Sufi/Yogic notions relating to thought, desire, habitual patterns, and consciousness, espeically as they relate to psychological functioning and cognitive behavioral theory; the study of attention, perception, and meditative states; the use of psychedelic substances for psychological and personal growth; and the role of music in subjective experience. William believes that the program will broaden his interest in these subjects. William enjoys wandering the woodlands with his wife, six children, and coonhound; if he is not in the woods, you may find him behind the guitar and synthesizer releasing music under the name Prana Crafter.
