Edward F. Sylvia attended the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, New York and went on to work for some of the world's largest advertising agencies in New York, Chicago and St. Louis. He also worked several years at the Missouri Botanical Garden.
Today, he lives with his wife, Susan, on a ten acre "homestead" just outside of St. Louis in southern Illinois. Edward is continually working on both his inner and outer gardens and has other writing projects in the works, including books, screenplays and a documentary.
Ed also presents lectures and workshops on Inner Gardening and various other subjects, always making connections between the topics of today and timeless spiritual insights.
