David Less has taught meditation, conflict resolution, and interfaith dialogue for over 45 years. Born Jewish and trained in Sufi, Buddhist, Yogic, and other spiritual pathways, he was the Global Vice President of the Universal Worship from 2001-2017, an organization in over 30 countries that honors the commonality in all religions and respects their differences.

In 2001, David founded Rising Tide International, a universal spiritual community in Sarasota, FL.
