Moved again, to Santa Fe.... looking forward to hosting....
Seems kinda weird that my identity is suddenly 'unverified' because I haven't paid them more money.... since I haven't actually received any benefit from this site yet, I'm not inclined to pay more money. Happy to pay if actual benefit is realized. :-)
I am a great friend with a great laugh! Lover of conscious communication, board games, meditation, personal development, good food and cooking, metaphysics and quantum theory, creating/listening/dancing to live music...
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love community and people and networking... I have been part of many communities, and I love meeting new people, making new friends and experiencing real culture and connection when I visit places, like the local hole-in-the-wall, a neighborhood walk, and regular ol' local living rooms – rather than having a predictable and isolating experience of, say, a hotel, and standard tours.
It is my general philosophy to leave a place a little better off than when I arrived. :-)
My hobbies include healing arts (including subtle energy work, holistic depth psychology, bodywork..), playing board games, watching movies, making music (vocals, keys/piano, guitar), meditation, personal growth, cooking and being with friends. :-)
- board games
- live music
Music, Movies, and Books
Books: my latest fav is Wild Mind by Bill Plotkin. Holistic depth psychology mapped out on the 7 directions. Incredibly useful and insightful.
Movies: Avatar comes to mind - I'm psyched to see the 3 sequels that will coming out!
Music: Too many to mention... I like most styles, when they have heart and soul... perhaps my biggest favs are acoustic singer-songwriters with super harmonies, such as Wailin' Jennys.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Just one? I love experiencing ordinary life as amazing, for starters! I'd say my most amazing accomplishment is to create a new group consciousness practice modality that's called The Field of Awakening, which happened after I quit my job, sold my home and 'jumped' into the unknown on my 'walkabout'!
Amazing travels? A couple that come to mind first include the Havasupai lands where blue-green springs create a lush almost tropical river and waterfalls in the middle of a desert canyon of Arizona. And, deep cave exploring in New Zealand - many hours of tunnels, underwater swimming and glow worms.
Teach, Learn, Share
"Life is not a problem to be solved, it is a mystery to be lived." ~ Osho
One has not only an ability to perceive the world, but an ability to alter one's perception of it; more simply, one can change things by the manner in which one looks at them. ~ Even Cowgirls Get The Blues by Tom Robbins
I lead a whole variety of authentic relating practices that support increasing awareness and deeper intimacy. I also am a healer and offer amazing sessions that integrate subtle energy work with developmental and depth psychology.
My new website, in development: www.theconnectionportal.com.
