Russell C. Kick, Ph.D., is CEO and founder of the Self-Discovery Research Institute, Inc. He has engaged in research for the last thirty-five years to develop practical, interesting and easy to learn knowledge and tools which share the knowledge he has gained in his quest for truth. His research has involved the study of the perennial wisdom of ancient masters, the most recent findings of modern science on the nature of life and being, and the knowledge his has received in his meditations and conscious exploration of other realms.

Russell is a native New Yorker and has been a college professor, researcher and writer for four decades. He has been deeply involved with computers since the 1960's and has done advanced graduate work in computer science. His interest and research in artificial intelligence and virtual reality have provided insights into the nature of reality and being. He had published and presented numerous papers on artificial intelligence and reality.

Russell is a "systems person" and his intent is to integrate ancient knowledge and modern science into a single practical system of thought which can help individuals better understand themselves and life and realize their full potential. To this end, Russell has created a holistic approach to self-discovery and realization which he has named "The Holistic Way" (The WAY) the purpose of which is to empower individuals to become all they can be and have a happy, meaningful and full life. His fervent prayer is that The WAY can help bring peace and prosperity to the world and help humanity reach the next level in the evolution to higher plane of existence.

Russell lives with his wife, Jane, of thirty-six years inTucson, Arizona.
