I've traveled a lot internationally in the past, Latin America & South America for pleasure & business, India 11 times, South East Asia dozens of times for studies of natural healing systems, business & pleasure.
I love people, food, culture, organic gardening, walking/hiking in nature (daily), adventure, but also I like to be mellow & to snuggle on the couch giving/getting foot rubs or watching movies in the evening. I like to read books but I also like to go out dancing, & to try new things. Again, alternately, I'm perfectly happy staying home to make an early dinner, & to get into bed early too!
Chi Kung, Martial Arts & Yoga have been passions & practices since childhood. Study & practice of Sexual Taoist Arts, as an adult, also informs my purpose in life. Lately I've been focusing my energies and intentions this past year on developing a new niche practice: Paleo/MovNat Lifestyle Coaching & Consulting. I combine all my knowledge, life experiences & intuition to serve & support clients, family & friends.
I know. It all sounds kinda cheesy, doesn't it?
But I do believe a life of service, altruism & right livelihood, assisting in guiding others in meeting their own needs, plays an essential role in my needs also being met. Play & having fun & laughter are all essential parts of my life too.
I have a beautiful 9 year old son who lives in SF with his mother, my ex-gf.
Laughing (at self & at/with others)
Nurturing others as well as myself
My sense of humor
I'm eclectic in my interests, so I read a number of books on diverse subjects, like: neuroscience, biographies, history, philosophy, marketing, gardening, health, diet, cooking, fiction, sci fi, transhumanism, sex, alchemy, wolves ... you get the picture!
Authors I like: Hemingway, Steinbeck, Camus, Poe, John Irving, Robert Jordon, Isabelle Allende, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, Ann Rice, Anne Lamott
Cable TV, lately:
Masters of Sex
Game of Thrones
Music: All music basically except bad Country Music(which is most of it in my opinion, I'm Southern, so I know of what I speak...)
I love: Reggae, Roots, Ska, Motown, Soul, R&B, Classic Rock of the 50s, 60s, 70s & some 80s, 60s Psychedelia, Punk, Classical & Symphonic Music, but also Pink Floyd, Grateful Dead, Dylan, Cowboy Junkies, Beatles, Kinks, LedZep, George Harrison, Roy Orbison. Elvis, Frank Sinatra & Johnny Cash are Gods, as is Ray Charles.
Ok I will admittedly, only when a pensive mood strikes me, sometimes also listen to some real country music like Hank Sr & Jr, Patsy Cline & Waylon & Willie Nelson ok they are cool. David Allen Coe, under-appreciated.
Eats: Mainly home-cooked Paleo/Primal Food is my daily fare, ie real organic local food, that needs to be washed, sliced, chopped and/or cooked.
Ginormous Salads (daily)
Stews & Soups (seasonally)
Home-made condiments & fermented foods
Avocados (most days)
Hot Spices & Hot Sauces (most days)
Veggie, veggies and oh yeah, ...veggies (daily)
