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. John 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. John was open to all types of teachings, brought in a number of the people who brought in their students that made up the experience of the WLC gatherings.
John was an avid learner, even in his later years when he was barely mobile he continued to learn and expand upon what he knew. John had a way of bringing out things that others knew even when they did not know they knew of these things. He also had a way of encouraging people to present what they knew to others.
John has passed on a number of years now but certainly lives on. I certain many can remember spending many hours with John as he taught of his direct experiences with other dimensions and realities. John could get those around him to actually experiences those realities.
