STORYTELLER, ASPIRING MASTER OF INVITATION
Groups basically saved my life from isolation and alienation and showed a way forward based on mutual learning. Over thirty years of intense interest I’ve grown to love and trust their power to transform lives, and me.
I live in the town of Perth, Ontario, in Lanark Country nearCanada’s capital, Ottawa.
- A keen canoeist and outdoorsman and love exploring outside of known systems.
- A lover of singalongs, literature, and
- Fan of Aki Karismaki movies
- Raised as a Catholic with early thoughts of becoming a priest but left that behind in university
- An errant hippie in the 60s and long thereafter resisted the mainstream and settling down.
- Worked for small publications, especially Everyman Men’s Journal for which I was the first editor. As a freelance editor and contract writer
- Successfully or crazily avoided a full-time career and was a student of the mystical traditions under various teachers and none. The pathless path of mutual discovery in groups is unendingly interesting to me as we mutually discover a way forward.
- A Focusing Trainer since 1995
- A 4Gateways Coach (Tom Daly, Boulder) but generally prefer working in groups.
- Lover of Systemic and Family Constellations and have been developing a non-invasive “Systemic Consciousness” methodology.
- Sometimes I can help communities or organizations get off on a whole new footing.
