Topics such as the arts, the self, and compassionate love are overarching themes for this website:

The self / the human person (click here): Difficult circumstances can sometimes remove delusions in our lives, and enable us to grow. This is the most active area of my writing and research at the present time.

Compassionate Love (click here): 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.



The Arts (click here): Participating in 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 share some of my own art and provide some practical encouragement for you to express yourself artistically.
