Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Neither macho nor mama's boy, I consider myself pretty balanced
between the Yang qualities of ambition, assertiveness &
protectiveness...and the Yin qualities of cooperation, kindness,
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
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!
