My self-summary
I love my life and am deeply grateful for its gifts and its magic. I'm looking forward to sharing and growing with someone, and laughing and playing together, too. "What I'll Give You Since You've Asked" by Judy Collins evokes in me what I'd love in a relationship.

I'm a soulful, playful, bright, affectionate, and dynamic man who has done a great deal of self-work. I'm looking for a fellow explorer who loves to listen and learn as much as they love life itself -- whether it be savoring truffles, walking in nature, singing with or dancing to a song, or flowing with any of the universe's many surprises.

I am privileged to be a psychic, and share this gift professionally. Along with being a therapist, I am also a professional Western and Vedic astrologer, and distribute and review astrology software. (Early in my life, I was a science "whiz-kid" and participated in advanced programs through my graduate work in neurochemistry.)

When I'm not working, I love to have adventures, find beauty in the little things, and share life with my incredible friends.

I really appreciate conscious communication and authentic sharing, and find my connection with people to be sacred and an amazing journey in and of itself.
What I’m doing with my life
In the past two years, I've started collecting essential oils and a mystical oil called Oudh. I am amazed at diversity of scents offered by oils and CO2 extracts, and their effects on consciousness.

I also love writing about and exploring astrology and spirit, finding and sharing fine teas (especially Taiwan oolongs), growing and learning, and gratefully enjoying my friendships, walks, movies, and my garden.
I’m really good at
creating new chocolate truffle recipes
listening deeply
kissing
working through issues
communicating about what's important
enjoying life
writing, and sharing what I've learned
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm enthusiastic, friendly, appreciative, open, loving, a good listener, happy, present, and kind
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite movies: Groundhog Day, Shakespeare in Love, Pleasantville, Big, Doc Hollywood, Galaxy Quest, The Legend Of Bagger Vance, The Fifth Element, The Parent Trap, Pretty Woman, Pump Up The Volume, Stranger Than Fiction, Tootsie, Witness, Phenomenon, Trading Places, What Women Want

Favorite music: I love music and like exploring new music. I particularly love beautiful voices and harmonies, like The Wailin Jennys, Sarah McLachlan, Girlyman, Donna De Lory, Neil Young, Simon & Garfunkel, George Harrison, The Beatles, ELO, and Ravi Shankar.

Favorite books: The Sufi stories of Idries Shah, After the Honeymoon, The Game of Life by Florence Scoville Schinn, Testimony of Light by Helen Greaves, Light on Life by Hart de Fouw, The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer and You are the one you've been waiting for by Richard Schwartz.

I also enjoy reading mysteries like those of Michael Connelly and Anne Perry. And really love "So you think you can dance."

Favorite foods: Thai food, Chinese food, French cuisine, organic cooking, and excellently prepared seafood. And of course my homemade chocolate truffles.

Note: OK Cupid is limited in its choices of diet, etc. I am more of a pescaterian than a vegetarian, in that I eat fish and dairy. Also, I imbibe alcohol rarely (a few times a year).
The six things I could never do without
my friends
good food
nature
my Guides
walks and the gym
learning and growing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I actually enjoy not thinking, but when I do, it is often about my next writing project, my experiences with my clients, finding the next great oolong tea or Oud or essential oil, my family's well-being, my new learnings in Vedic astrology, and meeting the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
having a wonderful dinner
watching a great movie or reading or listening to music
and/or sharing time with a close friend
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes get really excited about things.
You should message me if
You are a woman who loves her life, and wants to grow with someone spiritually and romantically. And to enjoy a rich and deep life with a partner.

And you want a partner who:
Listens well and processes deeply
Is affectionate and giving
Likes nature and walks (and hikes)
And works to stay aligned and clear
(and makes great chocolate truffles)
