FROM GROWING UP IN a strict and sheltered Protestant Christian household to exploring and experiencing many Ways including Buddhism, Shamanism, Paganism, New Age, and good old Life, LLOYD MATTHEW THOMPSON has clearly been shaped by each path in many ways. As the oldest of nine home-educated children, he became accustomed to a self-motivation and independence that drives him to this day, even when surrounded by pressing influences. Whether writing, painting, drawing, or teaching, Lloyd has committed to and strives to embody and exemplify the mantra he has found at the heart of all things: And the bottom line is Love.
Lloyd Matthew Thompson has written for various metaphysical and holistic blogs and magazines, both locally and globally. He is the author of the nonfiction works LIGHTWORKER: A CALL TO AUTHENTICITY and ENERGYWORKER: A CALL TO EMPOWERMENT, as well as the fiction works THE HEALER: A NOVEL, ROOT, and AURA: A SHORT STORY. He is currently working on his next full-length book, entitled THE ENERGY OF GOD.
Lloyd lives in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, with his wife, his thirteen-year-old triplets, his six-year-old daughter, and his two cats named Akasha (the vampire queen) and Buffy (the vampire slayer). One can simply imagine how those two four-leggeds get along.
