Steven Leonard Messina is an accomplished writer, poet, musician, and scholar of life. He holds a B.A. in philosophy from Stony Brook University in New York and a degree in jazz/contemporary music from Five Towns College. His training in both disciplines has left him a highly critical thinker with exemplary organizational and problem-solving skills. He is a compassionate, articulate communicator with an eagle eye for discerning the essential from the unimportant and is adept at proposing alternate solutions that may not be obvious. Steve has synthesized tenets from multiple spiritual and philosophical teachings to carve a path toward happiness and success that all can follow and enjoy. Whether you seek practical help for managing the daily facets of your life, assistance in attaining desired goals, spiritual guidance, or discourse on the profound existential ideas of human existence in an ever-changing world, Steve can provide the structure, support, and reflections necessary to fuel your transformation into the highest version of yourself.
Steve concentrated his studies on the philosophies of Christian Mysticism, Sufism, Advaita Vedanta, Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism. SUN MOON BRIGHT stems from The Lotus Sutra, one the most influential buddhist scriptures, which seeks to enlighten people so they may overcome suffering and lead a genuinely happy life.
SUN MOON BRIGHT is a metaphor for the wisdom and compassion that is itself enlightenment. In Christian mysticism, the Sun, even with its magnificent illumination, is merely a shadow of the light of God. The Moon signifies truth and enlightenment. And bright is the illumination...or the way. Steve's goal is to help light a path for clients, so they may harness their inner power to manifest positive transformations in their lives.
