Synthesis aptly summarizes my path — integrating separate elements into a complex whole. The impulse to synthesize has guided me throughout my life.
I continue to explore and learn intellectually and experientially.
My formal education and training covers religion, philosophy and spiritual traditions, Yoga and Ayurveda, shiatsu and oriental medicine and Law. Each of these has in turn opened doorways to the personal exploration of energy flows, ideas of body-mind-soul and creative expression in writing and design.
My profession for over ten years was lawyer, attorney, advocate, counsel. In that career my analytical skills were honed and applied to solving problems—and perhaps contributed to creating some too—and my writing had a limited and specific outlet. I made my way into the study and then the practice of law because what in the heck was I going to do with an undergraduate degree in Religious Studies and a certificate in shiatsu and oriental medicine?!
With a 20-year perspective I realize that I was planting seeds for myself and that it has taken this much time for each of the seeds to grow. My task is now to distill the essence of each of these ideas and experiences and synthesize them. My profession now is Creative Synthesizer.
I desire to create FLOW in words and in designs. I desire to find meaning in and understanding of personal truths and Universal Truths. I desire to feel connection, compassion and LOVE.
Retreats are a vehicle to invite you to my table, metaphorically speaking, where together we can seed the elements of a transformational experience and allow it to flourish in your life. I invite you to join me if you resonate with any of my words, my ideas or my process.
