John Greven was born in 1961 in Oklahoma. At the age of eighteen he was struck by the idea that the “creator of the universe” couldn’t be as limited as he'd been taught. This began a search that took him through various religions, philosophies, metaphysics, and meditation. The search went on at various levels of intensity and commitment for twenty-five years. In 2004 a meeting with John Wheeler contributed to bringing the search to an abrupt end as the simple and obvious truth was seen.
