MY BACKGROUND AND SOME RESOURCES
I am a psychologist, a certified facilitator of the Living Inquiries, a certified Tension and Trauma Release Exercise (TRE) practitioner, a certified Breema practitioner and instructor, and a Vortex Healer. I have done The Work of Byron Katie since 2005 and am in the certification program. See posts on Living Inquiries, TRE, Breema, Vortex Healing, and The Work.
Here are some resources I have found helpful, some of my influences, a list of some of the books in my library, and a few old essays on eco-spirituality. Here are also some blogs about what’s happening currently in my life, autobiographical posts, and some music I listen to. For the sake of completeness, I’ll also include a link to my old blogs here. I also occasionally post some of my own photography and have a page with a selection of photos.
ABOUT MYSTERY OF EXISTENCE
This website – an exploration into the mystery of existence – reflects what is alive for me here and now. As with any other stories, maps, images, theories, and frameworks, anything here has a question mark after it, even if it doesn’t show up on the screen.
Also be advised that what I write comes from personal explorations and experiences. It’s inevitably colored or framed by existing traditions and maps, but these writings are typically not about these traditions or maps.
The best way to learn more about this website is to use the article finder, do a search on the topics you are interested in, or check out the most used tags in the sidebar or the tag cloud. Also, read an updated explanation of the URL absent of I, and the initial explanation from a while back.
Please feel free to contact me or leave a comment. I appreciate it and typically respond within a day or so.
