Bill started Centerpointe Research Institute in 1989 with borrowed recording equipment set up on his kitchen table. Today, nearly two million people in 193 countries have used Centerpointe programs to improve their lives, and he has become one of the best-known personal growth teachers in the world.
Bill has been involved in personal development for nearly 40 years as a seeker, teacher, public speaker, author, musician, composer, therapist, workshop leader, and business owner. He has studied and practiced a wide range of traditional and modern transformational and therapeutic practices with a variety of teachers. He has studied music composition with world-renowned Czech composer Tomas Svoboda and Spanish composer Salvador Brotons, is also a nationally known jazz saxophonist, and has been a private pilot since 1995, flying a Socata TMB 900
Bill has shared the stage with many of the top business and human potential leaders in the world, including Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul), Dr. Stephen Covey (7 Habits of Highly Effective People), the Dalai Lama, Stewart Emery (co-creator of est), Ken Wilber (author, philosopher, and creator of Integral Institute), Sir Richard Branson, and many others. In 2003 Bill was invited to address the United Nations Values Caucus.
In his role as Director of Centerpointe Research Institute, Bill is the creator of The Holosync Solution™ program, The Life Principles Integration Process™ and several other courses. The Holosync Solution™ program utilizes Centerpointe’s proprietary Holosync® sound technology, embedded beneath soothing music and environmental sounds, to induce deep meditative states, creating many significant mental, emotional, spiritual, and health benefits.
The idea of using precise sounds to alter a listener’s state of mind came from a 1973 article in Scientific American by researcher Dr. Gerald Oster of Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York. In this article, “Auditory Beats in the Brain,” Oster describes a characteristic of the brain wherein electrical brain wave patterns resonate to certain precise frequencies when presented with audio tones of certain frequencies.
