I became aware of the ethereal realm of spirit as a child. I was just fine with this parallel world until I sought to understand it. Then I became confused. Descriptors of this elusive reality were either absent or downright scary. With only a murky point of reference I grew increasingly wary of my encounters. They felt unsettling, so I closed myself off; I thickened my boundary of perception. This initiative worked, kind of, but I continued to experience periods of connectivity. These spontaneous moments of lucidity had a cumulative effect and eventually shifted my focus. My uncertainty morphed into curiosity which prompted action.
I began what was to become a twenty year exploration of the phenomena I experienced as a child and young adult. I pursued spirit through cultural understanding, religious belief, sacred practice, metaphysical philosophy and experiential research. I became conversant in the myriad ways spirit communes as I allowed the ethereal to merge with my material world. I encouraged and was continually astounded by the exchange of information and the magnanimous nature of spirit. My journey has been wondrous and awe-inspiring and I am delighted to share this experience through my practice.
