"Beautifully said, David, and so true. All our ideas are concepts, and though they can be so useful in providing precision to our thinking, they can never in themselves embody ultimate truth. And even that language “ultimate truth” is a…"
Originally from California, I've lived in Ireland since 1991. A spiritual seeker since a young age, destiny has taken me to many teachers, many spiritual traditions. My experiences with Amida Trust as a student on the Buddhist Psychotherapy training--and with Dharmavidya in particular--made a profound impact upon me. Yoga has always been my main practice, and I've taught in my own small private studio for a long time. I recently trained in Vedic Astrology. But these things are all just part of the "tool box". My interest in working with people involves facilitating transformation, theirs as well as my own. I have three grown sons and two granddaughters, as well as a very large extended family, mostly in California. I'm feeling the passage of time very poignantly these days, so savouring every experience that comes my way. Nature, solitude, simplicity, sunshine, as well as conviviality, all bring me much joy.

From my involvement with Amida, I first went to the centre in France. News updates have come to me via Facebook so I've been vaguely aware of some of the changes going on there.
Is your primary interest...

The great forests are the lungs of the earth. I myself have lung problems. When there are parts of the lungs that don’t work anymore one can run out of energy. It can strike suddenly. We will probably not do anything serious about climate change or wildlife extinction…
My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…
“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue
