Like the song lyric, I believe that "love is what we came here for." And I also believe that a committed partnership, while incredibly challenging, offers unmatched rewards for those who enter into it--as well as for the people whose lives are touched by the partners. I believe that love is our fundamental nature, and we also need to practice it! I can't think of a better use of my time than devoting it to "the Art of Love," can you? If you agree, then perhaps we can support each other....
I am 5 feet, 9 inches tall; 150 lbs; and am in the personal transformation business. It feels like my main job--for the past 40 years--has been working on my own healing and transformation. So, I would certainly cherish a partner who is up for inner work that relationships seem to require!
Have identified as "Bu-Jew" (born Jewish, practicing Buddhism) for the past 6 years. Recently, however, have found quite a resonance with Adyashanti--who incorporates Buddhism, Christianity and the "non-dual" perspective into his teaching. Meditation is a major part of my life, and it would be wonderful to connect with someone who would want to meditate together.
I play electric & acoustic guitar (well); sing (passably); dance (swing, Contra, rock & roll); or just listening (especially jazz). Am refreshed by being in Nature and like to walk--whether at Howarth Park or just around town. I enjoy cooking (& my charcoal grill); good conversation; laughter; and am told I give a good massage. I work out regularly and tend to stay physically active, so prefer a partner with a similar energy level.
Looking to meet someone who shares my desire to be fully present...who wants to (and can) share her inner life--and hear mine--without losing touch with her own truth or yielding to fear of conflict. Hoping she finds humor in life and human foibles...is gentle with herself and others... appreciates beauty and the arts...is passionate and affectionate...and will go with me to places where neither of us have gone before!
