Eric Alan is an author, photographer, lyricist, radio broadcaster and workshop leader. With the release of Grace and Tranquility in book and CD form, he continues a creative journey that has taken him across genres and decades.
His previous book, Wild Grace: Nature as a Spiritual Path, has inspired workshops on the re-integration of nature into daily life, a regular column reaching several eastern states, and multi-media event collaborations with nationally recognized musicians.
Grace and Tranquility further integrates his passions for meditative inquiry, photography and music. It’s a quest to share a path along which reliable daily tranquility can be found, no matter the world’s hard chaotic edges.
The companion CD of the same name adapts lyrics from his two books and merges them with the elegant music of the band Gypsy Soul.
He divides his time between Cottage Grove and Ashland, Oregon, while also exploring wild and civilized places beyond.
