My theoretical orientation toward healing has always been grounded in real-life experience. After suffering an existential crisis at 18, I began to search for a reason to live. Initially I sought answers in contemporary education, but it wasn't sufficient to provide the answers I sought. I turned to an independent study of classical and existential philosophers and psychologists for guidance and found that despite my lack of interest in books as a child, written words could provide access to "friends" throughout human history as concerned about these core issues of life as I was. I discovered I was not as alone as I thought I was. But finding brothers and sisters suffering in a common darkness wasn't sufficient to reveal the way to a more enlightened and fulfilled form of life. I began an independent study of religion and spirituality in conjunction with my ongoing practical interest in philosophy and psychology, that led, over several decades, to an increasingly more vivid sense of a trans-cultural orientation to life that could speak to professed atheists and believers of good faith alike.
Despite living in an increasingly chaotic world, I believe each of us can adopt a more open-minded and open-hearted "beginner's mind" orientation toward reality that may open a door to a childlike sense of wonder and hope. That as naive as it may sound, or despite our fears to the contrary, reality at its core is good and governed by moral law or what some call karma. That the secret to living well is trust in the goodness in our own nature. Such a vision, I believe, can provide a sense of stability or a foundation for a reliable hope.
I believe each of us can attain such a vision and as we do, we will increasingly discover the unique role each of us has to play in a world in desperate need for healthy change. I believe such a vision, insofar as we realize it, will necessarily manifest itself in all we think, say, and do as well as give meaning to all the techniques or interventions we, as professed healers or "ministers of souls," employ for the sake of this end.
