Hello, I am a practical mystic, a paltry poet, and a prolific ponderer. I write about the intersections of mental health, social justice, spiritual discipline, and Scripture. It's what the classic mystics called the interior life.
I call myself a Christian, as I follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, but do not align myself with any particular brand or denomination. Everything I write comes from my background in Christian Mysticism (a philosophy, not a group), but I am hospitable and inclusive of other faiths and backgrounds. Even as a Christian Mystic, my works often incorporate the insights of Taoism, Stoicism, and Zen philosophies.
That said, I do not suffer con-artists, religious salesmen, and all those who use religion as a weapon to persecute and exclude others from social acceptance and equality. With every work, my goal is to comfort the disturbed, and disturb the comfortable.
