As my life takes a major swing and my perspectives shift, I've redone this site. If you wish to know the details of my life: jobs, publications, videos, memberships, etc. check my vitae
The work most worth doing for me has been helping myself and others remember how interwoven we are with the rest of the natural world. Only when we act out a dark fantasy of separation do we harm the very world in which we are enmeshed. Once awakened, exploitation of others, the destruction of any eco- system and that ultimate obscenity - war - all become as impossible to support as it would be to take a hammer and chisel (and) cut off ones own fingers.
My different forms of self-expression: work, writing, photography are parts of who I have been and am. Psychedelic experiences have been the foundation stones of my worldview, as crucial now as when I had my first experience. If it is true, as one tradition suggests, that "God is as close to you as your jugular vein," knowing that personally should be beneficial.
