Randy Bell began his personal study of the spirit and spirituality after careers in accounting, music, and project management. In the early 2000s Bell built a sanctuary in the mountains of western North Carolina, where, as Director of Spring Creek Spirituality, he explored his own spiritual path and welcomed people of all faiths and backgrounds to the sanctuary in order to do the same. Bell has lead sessions at a number of events and institutions including the Wild Goose Festival, Mt. Zion Retreat Sanctuary, and Mt. Olive College. He has attended retreats with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Sharon Saltzburg, and Lama Surya Das, among others. He is a member of the North Carolina Writers Network and Spiritual Directors International, and has published fourteen books.
