Coming out of the 60’s into the 70’s, Russ was a rock n rolling, bar fighting, party-er, consuming drugs/alcohol and searching every door to meaning he could get his hands on. He was a dabbler in dark occultism and a practitioner of golden Buddha meditation where he was trained in astral projection to seek the ascended masters. Russ says: “I sought to experience anything spiritual, supernatural, and alternative I could – to find what it was I was looking for.” But I didn’t … instead I found myself on the edge of death and hell itself. Then things turned around.
