I am an adventurer-explorer—geographically, culturally, imaginally, and in terms of spirituality.
Perhaps like most of our lives, my life has been a fantastic mixture of light and darkness, of the pleasurable and the painful, and of great joy and hard-to-bear trial. It has also been a miraculous coming together of the “hands-on” physical, of in-depth intellectual voyaging, and of a soaring richness of the heart and spirit. It is now a life mostly satisfied, continuously inspiring, and at the same time largely completed.
I am a life-long student of, and college teacher, guest lecturer, and workshop presenter in, the fields of history of thought, comparative religion and mythology, and depth psychology. I am the author of seven books in these fields with major publishing houses, with the sale of numerous foreign rights. I have been a pastoral counselor, working with individuals, couples, and groups, and am a retired pastor in the United Church of Christ, in which I specialized in inter-faith dialogue and alternative services, as well as church growth.
I am a writer of lyrical illuminations—the culmination and fruition of all the above.
I am a lover of the Divine, my fellow human beings, and reality as I have experienced it.
