This site has a section with resources for my recent book Spiritual Connection in Daily Life: 16 Little Questions That Can Make a Big Difference. (

And I also blog regularly on various topics and post art on the blog page:

I have subsections of this site with academic publications and links to my presentations and interviews.

The Arts: Our experiences of the arts can be spiritually enriching, opening us to a more full appreciation of who we are and all of life. As we stretch towards artistic expression, it can help us to communicate with others in creative ways. I am sharing some of my own art and include ways to encourage you to express yourself artistically.


The self / the human person: Difficult circumstances can sometimes remove delusions in our lives, and enable us to grow.

Compassionate Love: Our understanding of the kind of love that helps us to flourish can be enhanced by the arts (music, poetry, film and visual arts) as well as by scientific studies and conceptual exploration into the nature of compassionate love.
