The only way to take life seriously is as a game, because it's only fun when you play it. Are you ready to play?
I specialize in finding ever more ways to dissolve the intersection between self, reality and consciousness. My main areas of focus are increasing generalized flow, states of mind, performance levels, self-mastery, presence (quality of existence) and personal excellence. Leap or dive.

I live on a hillside in an old apple orchard where it is quiet yet rich with animals, colors, wind and rain, and at night, stars. When I returned from long, noisy, demanding days at school, my home on Spruce Hill comforted me.

So, this is my purpose, here—to cultivate such a home for myself and for others.
This is a place where I hope to share my questions after so many years of experience teaching and meditating.
