His 8 interests
in his own words...
I feel a drive to do something important with my life, do you? I enjoy exploring and experimenting with all life has to offer, and am as comfortable in large groups or spending quite nights at home, how about you? Do you too recognize the perfection of the imperfection of humanity? Do you smile at little kids, can you can see the subtle truth beyond the social constructs and illusions, have you moved beyond jealousy and the need for control, do you value being sensual and understand the essential necessity of intimacy. In all things, great and small, can you see the Beauty of the divine expression? I'm back in the States, after two years living and playing primarily in South Africa, with 2012 travel and projects in the Mexico, India, Turkey, UK, Netherlands, France, and Spain. My extended family, my community, and work drives me. A year after 9/11, I worked with NYC residents for direct public input on the future design for the new site; After Katrina i went to the Lower Nine in New Orleans to help families rebuild. In September I facilitated a South African conference addressing the most perplexing challenges of their society: education, healthcare, and public service delivery. Today I can see that I have always been on a path to become a contemporary mystic. Five years ago my pagan community (www.4QF.org) led me to The Western Mystery School of Qabala - which has become my primary spiritual family. I should have known this would be my destiny, in high school I was a Jesus freak! I’m making a concentrated effort in this life-time to do some intentional "consciousness-expanding" work so I don’t have to do “Ground-Hog Day” gig next life-time (I take to heart the Indigo Girl’s sentiment on reincarnation in their song “Galileo”). I'm healthy, undetectable HIV+, a yogi, a Qabalist, a systems thinker, an ENFP, an occasional vegetarian and occasional tea-toddler; feet on the ground, and heart on my sleeve, and head in the air – I like that balance!
