Jay N. Forrest is a philosopher, teacher, and writer sharing a worldview and way of life that is spiritual but not religious. His naturalistic teaching is founded on science, but draws inspiration from such wisdom traditions as Buddhism, Daoism, and Stoicism.
Jay became a Christian in 1983 and was ordained as a Christian minister in 1988. In 2011, five years after earning his doctorate in Christian ministry, he lost his faith.
This sent him on a search for a spirituality that was true to science, true to reason, and true to life. Jay studied Buddhism for over a decade, becoming a Certified Meditation Teacher. He is also a ordained Humanist celebrant.
He also studied Daoism and Stoicism, among others. He finally realized that none of them were error-free. All had limitations. It was then that he created Bodhidaoism.
Bodhidaoism is an evidence-based solitary spiritual path of awakening and flourishing that is non-theistic and non-institutional. It is a spiritual path still in development.
