He is a former director on the Advisory Council for The Centre For Studies in Religion and Society at the University of Victoria in British Columbia. He continues to give occasional presentations and workshops on Taoism and Zen. His latest interest, following travel, photography, Eastern philosophy, design and sailing, is kayaking.

He lives with his wife, a classical musician, in a self-built home on ten acres of forested land on Quadra Island, British Columbia, Canada. A large organic garden and orchard supply much of their food needs. Their pets are the wild birds and animals that share their property."
