As a minister Dana feels honored to assist people in spiritual counseling sessions, prayer and the sacred journey of finding their bliss. He respects all faiths and traditions. In addition to being a minister he is also an accomplished artist. With PAINTED PRAYERS he combines both worlds through his commissioned art work, called “personalized yantras”, on his “Painted Prayers For You” website.

Dana listens and works within the guidelines of one’s own faith and spiritual practices. Ultimately, the aim of all spiritual practice is a mind focused on love and light, which leads to a calm mind and a peaceful heart. A calm mind and peaceful heart creates a peaceful body, bringing about a blissful state of being. The Yantras and Mantras, (prayers) on Dana’s Painted Prayers website are beautiful instruments for assisting one in attaining a focused and peaceful mind.

Dana has studied and practiced yoga and meditation for over thirty years. Dana studied under the yoga master Sri Swami Satchidananda the founder of Yogaville and Integral Yoga®. At Yogaville he was ordained as an Interfaith Integral Yoga Minister. In addition, he was certified as a Yoga and meditation Instructor.
