Briefly, I’ve been a social worker and life coach for about thirty years. I’ve had a private practice and worked in addictions and CBT, but the last eighteen years have been focused on end of life work. In addition, I work extensively in dream analysis and the medical field. My spiritual path involved an upbringing in a very loving, hippy, Catholic community. My earlier adult years were spent in studying Buddhism, sufism, and various forms of meditation. I would describe my spiritual practice as one of gnosis. A spirituality based on the experiential encounters with the divine either through meditation, prayer, dream work and nature. I possess no specific religious associations or pursuits. I write as a means of exploring my spiritual understanding and to express my struggles and joys in this relationship between myself and the divine.
