Welcome to my small patch of grass on the internet. I’ve been kicking around the idea of putting all the things I’ve learned on my journey of (currently) 51 years and counting out into the world. A book seems awfully ambitious and so I settled on a blog. The actual impetus for doing it at this moment will be revealed in time.
I will endeavor to commit to (virtual) paper those useful slivers of thought that have landed in my consciousness as I process and integrate various lessons along the way. Starting in 2009, owing to the separation from my wife of 15 years and many years of dissatisfaction with the trajectory of my life, I began what has become a continuing series of transformative experiences, ranging from traditional psychotherapy to “self-help” programs to psychedelics. Along the way, I’ve come to know myself in a new, more serene, way. My hope is that my sharing about the journey will help us both in our continuing evolution on this little chunk of hot rock called Earth, Gaia, Pachamama.
One of the rules I will do my best to enforce with myself is to remain respectful of everybody’s journey and never prescribe something for you or anybody else. Please hold me to this. I am not a doctor. Your journey is your own. What has worked for me may not be right for you.
