Frank also studied the wisdom teachings of the Greeks, Egyptians, the Jewish mystical system of the Qabalah, Rudolf Steiner's Anthroposophy and Alfred Korzybski's works on Semantics, and the works of George Gurdjieff among other teachings and philosophies.
In the early 1970's, Frank was a member of the Arica Institute in New York, trained in Arica III and became a teacher in the New York facility working with Oscar Ichazo and his introduction to the west of the Enneagram psychological system.
Frank has practiced and taught astrology since the 1970s and has had both a nationally-syndicated newspaper column 'Star Gaze' and two radio programs, at WALE in Rhode Island and KRXA in California. His clients include Academy and Tony Award winners, government leaders, artists, corporate CEOs, and spiritual seekers from all walks of life.
Frank has written several books. Color Magic and Color Your World, seminal books on the psychology of color, were published initially by Warner Destiny Books, later reprinted by Inner Traditions. Color Your World is currently available in print and Kindle editions. His work on color is included in the Faber Birren Collection of Color housed at the Art and Architecture Library of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut and at the Royal College of Art in London, England. Earth Changes Ahead was published by Warner Destiny Books and is currently available in print and Kindle editions. Treating the geophysical, atmospheric and climatological changes challenging the stasis of humankind, this title was recommended as reading for a course on catastrophic geology at Drexel University in Philadelphia, and was commended on a program sponsored by the Los Angeles Federation of Scientists. The Master System is published through CreateSpace and available in print and Kindle editions. With the subtitle of 'getting to know yourself and everyone else', The Master System is a numerological journey into greater self-awareness and greater understanding of personality traits.

On to College provides a comprehensive guide as to what high school students and their parents need to know about college selection, application and admissions.
In the mid-1980's, Frank started Quintile Productions, Inc., a Stamford, Connecticut based audio production company, one of the first companies to write and produce spoken word audio presentations. Among the Quintile Productions library were works by spiritual teachers Alan Watts, Manly Palmer Hall, and various self-help tapes one of which included Frank's own spoken audio production of Divine Design.
As President and CEO, Frank developed and oversaw the expansion of Quintile Productions into a retail outlet, a catalog mail-order company and a workshop center that over five years sponsored more than one thousand workshops by leaders in the human potential movement.
In the mid-1990's, Frank was involved in a major auto accident that left him partially paralyzed. Quintile closed and Frank spent a year in recovery and rehabilitation working with both conventional medicine and physical therapists and complementary practitioners that included many modalities of alternative therapy. After a year, Frank recovered fully and was given a 'gold star' by the orthopedic surgeon and physical therapists for 'coming back from the dead'.
In 2000, concerned about the future of the country, Frank made an unsuccessful run for the U.S. House of Representatives in the 4th Congressional District in Connecticut, which then included the most affluent and the most poverty-stricken communities in the country.
In various seminars and through his writings, Frank has made various accurate predictions, including the eruption of Mt St. Helens, the bursting of the bubble of the Japanese economy, the dotcom implosion, the advent of terrorism on US shores, the housing bubble, the Great Recession, and the increase in power and strength of storm systems with intensified localized fronts.
Frank continues his professional astrological practice, serves as a business consultant in the reorganization and revitalization of companies, and is an independent education consultant and principal of East West College Counseling LLP.
Frank continues to travel extensively giving his forecasts of things to come. His website / blog address is: www.frankdon.com. The website of his educational consultancy practice is www.eastwestcollegecounseling.com
