This blog is the product of a lifelong search for meaning, my own wanderings through the forest. It is primarily a vehicle for my own writing, but I often post excerpts and quotes from writers whose work inspires my thinking.
My posts are personal observations, things that have captured my interest on the journey. Topics include religion, theology, philosophy, narrative, mythology, metaphor, symbolism, mysticism, and contemplative practices.
I have a special interest in the writings of the medieval German mystical theologian, Meister Eckhart, on whose thought I wrote my doctoral thesis. The spiritual lexicon with which I’m most intimate is that of the Christian tradition, and my writing reflects this lifelong influence. However, my spiritual life and my thinking are now deeply nourished also by teachers of other religious and spiritual traditions, as well as by science, literature, and the arts.
Feel free to share any of my posts. If you wish to use or cite my material in any other way please do me the courtesy of emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Similarly, if you own rights to an image, video, or text that I have used without attribution please contact me to discuss. Thank you.
