Purpose in Life

Steven is also known by his spiritual name, “Quazar”, and is a values-driven person who organizes his life around three primary personal mission statements that speak to his commitment to community contribution and the beauty of diversity:

· To inspire people to realize their own unique calling to contribute to humanity and experience fulfillment,

· To support people in recognizing the beauty in difference, and

· To break down the barriers between belief systems and support people in finding their personal paths to healing, wholeness and spirit.
