I enjoy traveling, reading, movies, theaters, and exploring various world religions and spiritual practices. I participate in a monthly gay Pathwork spiritual group in addition to meeting with a small group of colleagues who routinely research new and old traditions of spirituality. Through self-study and professional training, I have become adept at employing meditation, mindfulness, and other empirically-supported processes in my personal and professional life.
