This site is for those who continue to be on a journey of mental, psychological, and spiritual growth; it is a broad, comprehensive approach to our daily struggles with mental and emotional well-being, including, but not limited to, alcohol/addiction recovery.
The journey that I have chosen to follow is an eclectic one that borrows from many traditions and philosophies: Buddhism, Christianity, A.H.Almaas, Pema Chödrön, Existentialism, American culture, Alcoholics Anonymous. Although I may be more sympathetic to many non-western and unorthodox traditions, I make every attempt to be respectful of other theological traditions, schools of psychology, and recovery programs. However, I have discovered that challenging some of the assumptions of many "received-wisdom" traditions are often necessary when those traditions contradict experience.
