I originally came to the spiritual worlds with the goal to transcend my (perceived) weak body and (perceived) difficult mind. Instead, I ended up undergoing a process of naming and embodying my soul.

In my spiritual studies, I learned a lot about yoga philosophy, Buddhist philosophy, and later, Ayurvedic philosophy. I studied dozens of healing techniques, spiritual practices, meditation practices and techniques. I read many of the great spiritual texts.

But today, I find I know less than ever about God, Source, the Universe, or the larger meaning of life and death than I did when I first started.

To my judgmental ego, it looks like I failed in my quest for peace through knowledge. But at a depth that matters more than the ego’s measure of success, I have surrendered to a kind of tranquility in not knowing. I have discovered the deepest source of healing and the most unshakable kind of peace through learning to dialogue and commune with my soul.

My soul speaks truth, my body speaks truth, my emotions speak truth, and while sometimes it’s a bitter and painful truth, there is wisdom, intelligence, compassion and kindness behind their words, in whatever form they come. It is from these places of inner truths I try to write.

Currently, I am in the final stages of preparing my upcoming book Embodying Soul: A Return to Wholeness, for self-publication with Curiosa Publishing, LLC, currently slated for availability in October 0f 2019.

Healing, One Piece at a Time

Anxiety takes our breath away. It hammers at our heart. It pumps up our adrenals until our bodies rush with enough adrenaline to run from a bear or lift a car. But when there is no bear to run from or car to lift, what then?
