|Allen is a twin and was born in Boston, Massachusetts. After spending five years as a Navy fighter pilot and ten years as a stockbroker, his life changed dramatically when he surrendered to love, came face to face with the emptiness of his life and finally confronted his deepest fears. In the midst of his deep despair and aloneness, a door literally opened within me and his life subsequently became inner-directed rather than outer-directed. This led him eventually to a masters degree in psychology and his work as a therapist. He now resides in Sonoma, California with an active private counseling practice in the San Francisco Bay Area focusing on personal transformation and inner child work.
In 1976, He self-published Conscious Love: The Ultimate Energy - the first intimation of his theory of the Unified Field of love. In 1978, in one of the earliest studies of the mind-body connection, He co-directed research into the role that self-directed beliefs and emotions play in the onset, development, and outcome of life-threatening illnesses, including cancer. This study concluded that psychic pain arising from the loss or threatened loss of love weakens the immune system and can lead to serious illness - if not death.
In the 1980's, He took a sabbatical from his counseling practice for eight years, focusing on the empowerment of organizations in the non-profit sector, while he pursued a path of deeply personal research into his hypothesis of soul consciousness and the Unified Field. In 1987, He completed his personal quest to reunite with this inner state of soul consciousness, and personally proved that the Unified Field of love existed beyond time and space and is the sole constant of the universe. He then returned to the field of psychology and reopened his psychotherapy practice.
In 1988, He presented his discovery of the Unified Field at the American Holistic medical Association's annual meeting. This is the first time that he unveiled his theory that the underlying and uniting force of the universe is a psychic energy field of Universal Love, within which all the forces of nature as well as time and space are merely conditions of state. In this paper, he cited his own personal experience of soul consciousness as well as the documented evidence of near-death experiences as clear evidence that a psychic energy field of soul consciousness lies not only beyond death but also beneath our deepest fears.
He utilizes his understanding of the Unified Field in his current therapeutic practice. Through his own relationship to this state of consciousness, he has developed a unique series of sessions that rapidly move clients to another choice of behavior. He works with people from all walks of life, including therapists and health-care practitioners, CEOs of major corporations, gifted artists, and ordinary working people who want to find out who they are and how they can truly make a difference. In essence, he literally jump-start their hearts.
In 1998, he received a Ph.D. in spiritual psychology from Greenwich University. Allen's dissertation, entitled "The Unified Field", was chosen as one of the four leading entries nationwide in the 1998 Common Boundary/ Institute of Noetic Sciences Thesis and Dissertation Award for work that best integrates spirituality and psychology. His dissertation was especially cited for its originality and relevance for practicing psycho-spiritual therapists.
In recent years, he has made presentations at the International Forum on New Science, the World Future Society, the Whole Life Expo in San Francisco and the National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Science and medicine, and have appeared numerous times as a guest on both local and national television.
He is the father of four adult children, and in his leisure time he enjoys yoga, swimming, music, and poetry.
