Aaron Kleinerman is a speaker, author, spiritual counselor and divine inspiration in the emerging generation of conscious leadership. He earned a bachelors degree from the United States Merchant Marine Academy. While traveling the world as a licensed navigator, Aaron's adventures included observing diverse cultures and communities all over the globe. While at sea, he found his true gifts in writing and journaling through numerous spiritual awakenings inspired on the high seas. In his very first voyage crossing the Atlantic, Aaron quickly observed, first hand, the enormous nature of the world and the infinite mysticism of the ocean. He began questioning and pondering the bigger meanings of life while discovering answers to the appearance of dysfunction in his own. Aaron's inner and outer voyages led him to the master’s program in spiritual psychology at the University of Santa Monica, California. You will also find Aaron deeply immersed in transformational leadership classes at the Agape International Spiritual Center. Aaron resides on his 40’ sailboat in Marina Del Rey, CA. His chartering company, Ocean Gratitude, facilitates spiritually awakening meditative cruises and retreats for ocean lovers of all ages. Blessed by the natural synergy of the wind, sea and spirit, the calm ocean energy assists Aaron's clients and students to have powerful inner and outer transformational voyages on board his beautiful sailboat, Passion. His first book of poetry, "Transformation of Soul; A Poetic Guide to Freedom" is full of powerful images and prose that will leave you breathless. Aaron's amazing story "Thank God I Turned Within" is shared in the second volume of the Thank God I series. Aaron interviews new authors joining the "Thank God I" community. He coordinates, with the core TGI team, the growth and duplication of this powerful project.
