Overview
"Feel The Rain" explores the enigmatic and long disputed nature of consciousness as well as best practices for expansion of consciousness. There is nothing more essential for living an authentic life, yet nothing more difficult to understand, much less achieve. The subjects and challenges involved are complex, subtle, and constantly evolving. Pritchard has a gift for explaining seemingly ineffable concepts and processes. He deftly weaves together the teachings of the great mystics from both Western and Eastern cultures, historical scholars, cutting edge scientific research, and his own unique experiences to meet this challenge. He brings a deeper understanding to the learning process, including matters you were sure you already understood. This is a book for anyone searching for life's deeper meanings, whether you are just beginning to search, or if you have been on the path for some time.

About the author
David is the oldest of seven children from a loving and free-spirited Chicago family. At the age of 14, he entered the seminary to become a priest, but soon discovered this was not his path in life. He went on to law school where he served on the writing staff of the Law Review. Beginning in 1977, David practiced for nearly four decades as a trial lawyer in the medical-legal field. He regularly lectured to physicians and lawyers, published in both legal and medical journals, and was a guest lecturer at the University of Notre Dame Law School. During these years, he volunteered with the Legal Assistance Foundation of Metropolitan Chicago, and eventually became Chair of the Board of Directors. In the early 1990's, David went back to school to earn a Masters Degree in Theology with a major in ethics, and for the next several years served on the Ethics Advisory Board ("EAB") of Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago. While at Children's, he lectured to interns and residents on medical-legal issues, participated with the EAB in attempting to resolve heartbreaking medical issues with no clear solution, and was instrumental in organizing the first ethics retreat at the hospital. In the late 1990's, David was invited onto the Board of Directors of Friends Without A Border, an American-Japanese charity that provides medical treatment to the children of Southeast Asia; as well as formal training for local doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers. In 2015, David retired from the practice of law and stepped down from the Friends Board to volunteer full time as Executive Director of Friends where he oversaw the founding and initial development of Lao Friends Hospital for Children in Luang Prabang, Lao PDR. David has studied and practiced meditation for many decades, including training with recognized masters in Europe, Israel, Nepal, Tibet, and the United States. He has taught introductory meditation courses including seminars for lawyers at the Chicago Bar Association; and in 2006, served as one of four group facilitators at the "Compassion In The Rockies: A Meditation Retreat For World Peace" at which the Dalai Lama, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, and Rabbi Irwin Irwin Kula gave teachings. David and his wife Joan have three adult children: Genevieve, Zachary, and Tyler. In 2018, David and Joan moved to a home on a lake in Northwest Indiana where David writes, and they both enjoy spending time with their son, Zak, his wife, Jeannie, and their grandchildren, Oliver and Eloise.
