Eldon was a practicing criminalist for over ten years while completing his education. He supervised and conducted investigations, and testing to detect deception. His earliest work with changing inner beliefs was conducted from this setting, including a double blind study conducted at the Utah State Prison, 1986-87. Eldon is President and Director of Progressive Awareness Research, Inc. For more than twenty years, his books, tapes, lectures, radio, and television appearances have approached personal empowerment from the cornerstone perspective of forgiveness, gratitude, self responsibility and service.
Eldon now lives in the countryside of Washington State with his wife and their two sons. Apart from his family and work, his true passion is horses.
