The spark behind my most formative experiences began at a young age when I found myself questioning the assumptions that I and others made about life. What is the root of human consciousness? Who was I before I had a name? The first time I opened my eyes, who looked out at the world?
As we mature a unique personality blossoms. We use language to explore and communicate, but I knew that personality and thoughts were not the totality of who we are. I wondered, what is our essence?
Perhaps because of these questions, I stumbled upon the tools to focus on something that was not taught in school, in my religion or by my parents. There is a core within each of us that is not intellectual or emotional, but can be known through direct, visceral experience. Each and every day I take time to enjoy this simple, elegant pleasure, and have been doing so for decades.
I am fascinated by how the components of consciousness are organized; how the host of behaviors, feelings and desires that make each one of us unique circulate around a core of consciousness like planets around the sun.
