Woods was born in the US and studied philosophy and art in college. He was a conscientious objector during the Vietnam war, a civil rights, women's rights, and mental patients activist, and great admirer of native Americans. He earned a master's degree in social work in '69 and pursued a fifteen year career in the mental health field in psychiatric, child abuse, relationship counseling, family therapy and correctional settings and became licensed for private practice in both New York and Colorado. By the late '70's, he couldn't contain a midlife longing for fresh adventures, and migrated to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Here he taught himself home-based furniture restoration skills and had a love affair with Mother Nature, which stirred him into environmental activism, prospecting for gold and Indian artifacts, and cultivating an alternative lifestyle. Open heart surgery at age 49 opened his heart in more ways than one, and cast him onto a more spiritual path. Daily meditator, lifelong ponderer and writer, Woods would love to see the birth of a new spirit- and nature-centered society, and eventually a whole new world. His first finished book "Dazzlephrenia: a Gallery of Thought on Consciousness, Awe for Mother Nature, and Wonderment over the Dazzling Cosmos", was published as full length ebook this year.
