Thanks for stopping by!
I'm loving life one day at a time and laughing as much as possible! Sometimes I just laugh for the sake of laughing because it will brighten any moment. (If you have ever heard of laughter yoga or been to a laugh center, you will know what I mean!)
I am physically expressive and enjoy dancing as well other physical activities. Yes, I like to dance (modern, contact improvisation, Salsa, Ballroom, ecstatic, ritual, to name a few.) I Love the ecstatic bliss of pushing my body to the limits of physical expression and discovering the depth of my creative genius! I love the music as it takes me on a journey in time, rhythm, space, and sensation.
However, my latest passion has been whitewater kayaking and I spend most of my weekends on the river enjoying all the beauty this state has to offer with a great community of people!
The other passions of my life are:
Studying Metaphysics- extensive back ground in meditation, ritual, and prayer. I have a series of classes I teach to adults and teenagers about Meditation, Sacred Geometry, Developing Psychic Awareness, and more. I have received extensive training in healing the energy systems of the human body as well as clearing negative energy from a person, place, or thing. Modalities such as: Light Body Activations, Elemental Energy Balancing, Reiki, Chakra Activation and Balancing etc.
Music - I love drums, harmonic overtone singing, Kirtan, and any other kind of instrument I can get my hands on!
Everything to do with water! I love to swim, hike up waterfalls, white water kayak/rafting, body boarding at the beach (haven't learned to surf yet), flat water kayaking, boating, fishing, snowboarding (riding frozen water still counts!) and so much more all year round! Thank human ingenuity for making dry suits, cold weather, and rain gear! Especially in this state!
I'm an outdoor kind of guy, which makes it all the sweeter to come home after braving the elements and cuddle up in front of the fire place with a nice glass of wine and indulge in a pleasant conversation, a good movie, or whatever else our imagination can come up with!
If I'm not on an outdoor adventure, I am usually checking out the local performance art scene. I love a good Dance, Theater, or Music concert. (especially if they include my friends from college on the performer list)
I am currently working as a teacher on the East side and enjoying it very much! I have been teaching for over a decade and love working with children. They are amazing, and in actuality they teach me more than I teach them!
If you have kids of your own, not a problem with me. Genetic material does not dictate my level of respect, care, and concern for all the children in my life.
So if you are looking for a man that likes to snuggle (I love cuddle piles-you might say i am somewhat of a lap cat, meow), can be present and expressive of my feelings, speak my truth, willing to listen to yours without judgement or attachment, appreciate the beauty of this world, be creative and artistic, willing to change and allow change to happen gracefully in a relationship, can be committed to monogamy (although I am open minded about less conventional forms of relationships as long as communication and honesty are maintained), honest, loyal, desires gender equanimity, willing to learn from you, willing to share what I know, is an awakened self aware spiritual being committed to empowerment of the human race, committed to discovering the path to divine union with you, and can out dance you any day of the week! J/K!
If you have similar sentiments and commitments to your self and to building a relationship with me based on these principles then I would enjoy meeting you!
That is all for now. If you are still reading, thanks for giving me the time of your day and if you are potentially interested in any way romantically or otherwise, feel free to send a message. I appreciate women who are empowered enough to make the first leap!
The Butterfly and the Rose
I walk the dream
where the street
breathes in the shadow
the lovers night.
oh, sweet love
long time coming
longer time whispering
I sing your eyes
the ever passing winds
I speak the words of my heart
I sing the songs of my dreams
I see in the water
and it’s true...
as I ride the butterfly,
I offer the rose.

"The gift of truth excels all other gifts"
"To see the world in a grain of sand,
And Heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."
"Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth;
The glory of action;
The splendor of achievement;
For yesterday is but a dream;
And tomorrow is only a vision;
But today, well lived, makes every yesterday
a dream of happiness,
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day!"
