My web site actually consists of three parts. In the first, I'm currently sharing The Birth of Wanderer, a chronicle of a unique spiritual transformation that began in the late sixties, when I was a left-brained intellectual and graduate student at UCLA with a promising career ahead of me as a psychotherapist and Jungian analyst. When it ended, several years later, I was a body with a mind, beginning a new life as a wandering vagabond, living by my wits and my inner truth, in the high mountains of California and on the back roads of America.

In the second part of my site, Wanderer Here and Now, I'm sharing whatever the current world scene inspires me to write. Recently I wrote about the passing of the old guard, those old men with their old ways who have had power over the rest of us for so many years now. I plan to write again soon asking the question: Why not see the positive side to what I call medicines but which are today called drugs? In the sixties and early seventies, we thought that it was possible to use at least some of these "drugs" (grass, acid, mushrooms, and peyote) without abusing them. What has changed?

In the third portion of my web site, my family and I are presently setting up a dream sharing forum which should be on-line by the end of October. My family and I have been sharing our dreams together for many years now. Besides leading to an increase in self-awareness and growth, we've noticed that sharing our dreams brings us much closer together as a family. Sharing our dreams, we're sharing our most open and real selves, and being accepted at these levels is quite liberating.

I have my PhD in Clinical Psychology from UCLA, have studied the I Ching and its wisdom, Jungian and Gestalt Psychology and dreams for over 30 years, and have been in private practice as a spiritual consultant for more than 25 years. I'm interested in studying consciousness in all its forms. My main tools have been my dreams and my experiences with LSD. Currently, I'm very interested in the transformation that we're all going through together, especially the changes that are occurring in our collective consciousness.
