About the Author: Frank Stronghorse was born in Dallas, Texas where he graduated from Highland Park High School and then obtained a BS in Finance from the University of South Carolina. In his various travels, he has lived in Atlanta, Sausalito, Los Angles, Phoenix, Dallas, and Austin. He currently resides on his ranch outside of Austin.
In 1986 Stronghorse attended a workshop with Harley Swiftdeer Regean in Texas which was followed up shortly thereafter with a Vision Quest throughout the Southwest portion of the U. S. He has been an apprentice of Swiftdeer and the warrior/priest path of the Sweet Medicine Sundance Teachings of the Twisted Hairs Tradition of Turtle Island since 1986. These teachings originated in South and Central America thousands of years ago and come from the lineage of teachers with whom Carlos Castenada studied.
Stronghorse is a 21-yr. Sun Dancer with the Dreaming Sundance tradition of the Twisted Hairs. Through a series of visions obtained during various ceremonies on Grandmother Earth, Stronghorse was led to explore the history and ancient traditions of the early Christian religion. As a result of his study and research, he was led to become an apprentice to the priesthood of The Divine Order of Melchizedek. Lord Melchizedek, although there is very little information on him, was the first teacher of monotheism which resulted in the formation of most of today’s world’s religions. Abraham was one of his main students and Yeshua Ben Joseph (Jesus) was eventually another.
From his blending of the shamanic traditions of the Twisted Hairs and the Christian traditions of The Divine Order of Melchizedek, Stronghorse completed The Mammonite Agenda in 2006 to reflect his conclusions from his many years on these two unique and complex paths. In this book, Stronghorse attempts to provide a description of a mindset that he believes has corrupted the basic tenants of the original foundation of the true spiritual message of monotheism, and re-directed the world’s religions into a struggle of superstition. Before you can craft a solution, you must understand the problem. Before you can define the problem, you must see how you participate. This is the focus of intent of The Mammonite Agenda.
His second book, My Journey Into the Infinite is a personal chronicle of his involvement with his medicine path. The Prophecy of the Saint-Hearted Sinner’s Kid This book chronicles his movement from a high rolling commercial real estate broker in Dallas, Texas to a spiritual warrior. These short stories are presented with a humorous and intimate look into the internal changes which occur to anyone seeking to become reborn within the Light. In addition, he offers insight into the changes that the world will be experiencing over the next several years as the dawn of the new age approaches. He explains in detail what this new age is about and how it will occur. He also offers exercises to prepare the reader for the new energy now entering our environment.
In addition to his day job as a commercial real estate broker and spiritual teacher, Stronghorse has formed an alliance with Tom Southard, past President of the Shady Side Academy of Pittsburgh, Pa, Rev. Katherine Mary Allman, pastor at The Bishop School in La Jolla, Calif, and Diana Whitney, Appreciative Inquiry, Social Constructional Theory, Taos Institute, United Religious Initiative, to establish the Global Center For Inter-Faith Study and Understanding. This center will be associated with a well-known University and will function to promote inter-faith dialogue, debate, and development within a scholastic agenda. It shall also serve to assist in the development of global business, political, and religious leaders as we move into the future of globalization through a shared experience with others of similar destiny by exploring the depths of the spiritual/religious roots of the cultures within the evolving economies of globalization.
