"I feel privileged to offer my life in service of our beautiful human family.
There is no greater honor."
Thank you for taking the time to visit me on this page. I assume that you’re here so that you can find out more about me personally, as well as about what happens when people interact with me. Describing myself is never easy for me, so please excuse the limitations of my best efforts.
I’ve organized this page into three sections for you:
- First, a heartfelt, personal expression of how I experience life’s gifts working within and through me
- Next, a more informational, semi-formal bio about me and my life’s journey, and
- Last, a number of testimonials by people who have sampled my work—commentaries about me and how they’ve experienced my involvement with them.
My heartfelt sense of myself :
I’ve come to see myself as a prototype or embodiment of “the” human being—a modern day “Adam,” if you will. As such, my life has progressively been a deeply felt experience of every aspect of the human experience—from its penetrating inner scream of primal pain to its exquisite and magical mystical realms. Through it all I’ve been divinely moved, even pushed, to learn, grow, deepen and expand in exponential ways.
Today, I’ve come to embody all of Life—its 3-dimensional and ultra-dimensional qualities. I’ve merged with everything we know of as human beings—our elemental earth, our primal nature, our energy field, creation’s vast Light, the purely divine, the endless cosmos, the empty vacuum of nothingness and, of course, our everyday human consciousness. All these dimensions have now taken up full-time residence in me and uniquely morphed within me; they’ve taken me over. I feel them every minute—they’re alive, vital, integrated and full. In short, I’m blessed beyond measure, but I’m clear that this is not really “all about me.”.
Yes, this “Bigger Life” has become me for one reason only—so that precious human beings, real life people with needs and dreams, can receive its generous largesse. So that the divine’s generous gifts, grace’s loving expressions and infinity’s unbounded magic can touch the hearts, heal the pain and support the aspirations of those who are looking for freedom and wholeness. So that those who are open to infinite blessings—those mysterious and unknowable powers from beyond our normal human resources—can attain their soul-driven calling. So that you and I can become all we came to earth to become.
So, I humbly admit, I’ve become a bit of a magician … a human translator of Infinity’s endless resources—the magic, miracles and blessings of unconditional love—into the hearts, bodies and beings of those who are moved to find me. From my depths (which includes the depths of infinity and beyond) truly quantum styles of healing, growth and expansion emerge—and they work their wondrous magic effortlessly and sweetly, as it was perhaps intended from our very beginnings.
Finally, if I must be even more frank about myself, I am a human being who has moved past the limitations of dualistic separation … who experiences a mystical blend of oneness, all-ness and nothingness in the core of our shared duality. Thus, my vision of life is different, my sense of human nature is more expansive, and my capacity to live in many worlds at the same time is strong. I mention these qualities only because those who seek me out usually are on their own path to their very own version of my experience. They are the ones I am here to serve.
Again, you may be one of them.
A more informational description:
To describe Bill Bauman is a relatively impossible task. People have called him a unique and inspiring human presence, a selfless and humble being.

Bill’s loving heart is at the forefront of his every interaction. His expansive vision moves people to hear their own truth most compellingly. His transformational gifts are deeply healing and magically empowering. His charismatic touch awakens people to claim their fullest freedom. And his own personal ultimacy or mastery is an inspiration for and mirror of the “ultimate human” that we all can become.
In all these qualities, Bill stands as a self-realized giant among us. While he embodies the human condition fully, he has transformed its seeming limitations into an enormous personal strength. Most importantly, Bill has found his unique calling and lives his personal destiny totally—to invite, lead and guide us to be the fullest, most realized self we can possibly be.
More specifically …
Bill Bauman is a noted trainer, speaker, motivator, and empowerer of people. He has spent his adult life serving many professional roles: that of a priest, psychotherapist, psychological and business consultant, empowerment specialist, transformational leader, entrepreneur, peace advocate, and spiritual visionary of life’s possibilities. Through decades of inspiring and loving service, he has brought a dynamic message of hope, a proven approach to change, and a true excitement about life’s possibilities into the lives of thousands of people.
Bill was a Catholic priest in the 1960s, a practicing psychologist from the 1970s to the 1990s, a business consultant and leader throughout the 1980s and 1990s, a noted leader in the peace movement throughout the 1990s, and a strong spiritual leader from the 1980s to the present. Currently, Bill has combined these many systems into a dynamic and life-changing approach that is unique to him.
With a doctorate in Counseling Psychology, a Master’s degree in Theology, and a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, Bill embraces life from a broad perspective and expansive vision. Thousands of people have attended Bill’s seminars on personal empowerment, dynamic leadership, love and relationships, personal and spiritual growth, and empowered healing—which he has led nationally and internationally over the past 30 years. He has given hundreds of growth-oriented seminars, trainings and presentations to groups of every size.
A proven entrepreneur, Bill started and led three profitable private businesses—a management consulting firm, a holistic health center, and a treatment center for learning disabilities, as well as his own successful private practice as a psychologist. Also, with his adored wife Donna, he founded and led two non-profit organizations—Washington, DC’s World Peace Institute (through the 1990’s) and The Center for Soulful Living (through the 2000’s).
Bill is a celebrated leader of leaders, recognized healer of healers, and dedicated servant of world servers. His generosity of heart and inclusiveness of all worlds attract many people to join him in his creative vision and committed service to our human world.
More important than all of the above, Bill is blessed to live with his cherished life partner of over 45 years, Donna—a beautiful woman whom he was privileged to meet when he was a priest and she was a nun. And together they are blessed to have an amazing adult son, an equally bright light to so many people.
And currently …
Bill dedicates his life to his unique calling and mission: presenting his inspiring vision of what is humanly and spiritually possible to those who want to be everything they possibly can, those who choose to live in the “all-ness” of their human experience … then, to stand firmly in that ultimate freedom as they lead those around them—friends, family, clients, etc.—to their personal greatness.
When you spend time with Bill, you’ll find yourself internally moved to become the most Ultimate Self you dare to be. You’ll experience his vision as refreshingly different, invitingly expansive and truly compelling—inviting you, once held in his safe and loving embrace, to be all you can be. Most of all, you’ll find yourself saying “yes!” to yourself and your limitless potential like never before.
As you interact with Bill, you will find him engaging and captivating at your conscious levels, stirring and transforming at your subconscious levels, healing and empowering at your unconscious levels, and inspiring and awakening of your super-conscious levels. In all these dimensions of your being, you will find yourself deeply touched, profoundly changed and forever different.
