Trey was born in Asheville, North Carolina, and still lives and works near Asheville.  In 2004, Trey was  diagnosed with Epilepsy after a series of seemingly divine revelations. At that point he started trying to make sense of a world that he thought he already knew.  His search began in the realm of neuroscience, biology, alternative healing practices, shamanism, physics, cosmology and everything in between.  Eventually the search led to spirituality, meditation, and non-duality.  He then realized that enlightenment and self-realization were ultimately what he had been trying to find all along. At that point the search narrowed and the main focus became Awakening.  His book "A Seeker's Guide to Inner Peace: Notes to Self," is a manifestation of that journey -- a journey he hopes everyone will take.

Trey is the founder of the Asheville Sangha online community, which was developed for people interested in non-duality, self-realization, meditation, enlightenment, etc.  He also facilitates Awakening Support Group meetings in the Asheville area, which feature the teachings of many prominent spiritual teachers.  Trey also offers one on one consultations for those interested in discovering their True Nature. You can reach him via email at trey@quedox.com, and follow his current writings through his on-going blog - http://compassion-blog.blogspot.com.

Here is a lovely endorsement from Mary Pompeo's Blog:

"When I first moved to Asheville, I decided that if I was going to be a part of the spiritual community up here that I wanted to experience it as a member and not a teacher. I thought it would do my ego some good not to be the authority and I felt it was important for every teacher to spend time as a student, for perspective.

I searched for a group and the one that drew my attention was the Eckhart Tolle meditation group. The young man who led the group, Trey Carland, did so with pure absence of ego, more so than I had ever experienced outside of India. Each week, the way he conducted the discussions and led us to experience the material taught me even more than the material itself.

I have great respect for Trey Carland as a man, as a teacher, as a fellow seeker. I encourage you all to read his blogs and his book A Seakers Guide to Inner Peace, which you will find helpful no matter where you are on the path.

Trey sees life as the experiences which teach us and in the following peace we can see how his young daughter is teaching him how desire gets so fixed in our mind that we decide things must be a certain fixed way in order for us to find happiness." - Mary Pompeo (http://marypompeo.blogspot.com/2014_04_01_archive.html)
