Eight years ago during my psychotherapy training I was listening to a lecture. I guess I felt bored and my mind began to drift. Without thinking I began to write and what I wrote were a number of simple principles that opened up a new perspective on the human condition.

At first I was mystified I did not understand where this material had come from. What I was reading felt new and exciting. These principles on this single sheet of paper were to have a profound effect on my life and ultimately formed the foundation of my first book "Blood Washing Blood" This website will give you access to some of the ideas in my book, as well as to information about my meditation group, meditation retreats, and individual and group psychotherapy.

Trying to empty the mind of thought requires thought, and that is like washing a blood stained garment in blood and expecting to clean it. I realized that this idea, which was originally made in regard to meditation, relates to much more than meditation and is perhaps the most profound and disturbing idea ever to have been conceived. This idea has forced me to re-evaluate all that I thought to be true. I hope it will do the same for you.
