About the Author
Bert Botta was born and raised in San Francisco, California. He was a pilot/instructor for Trans World Airlines for twenty-six years. In 1981, after his third divorce, he began a worldwide spiritual journey. He opened a private practice as a professional counselor in St. Louis, Missouri, after earning a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology.
After a return to TWA, Botta attended the New Warrior Training Adventure. He later took early retirement from his airline to become a certified leader in that organization. After seven years out of the cockpit, he went to work for Netjets as a captain on Citation and Gulfstream corporate jets.
Botta envisioned, formed, and co-led the first Living From the Heart Christian Men's training and subsequent community in Marin County, California, in August 2011.
