"To be nobody but yourself
in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else
- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight
and never stop fighting."
e. e. cummings
The Quest for Reality
Life confronts us with a few basic questions: What's it all about? Why am I here? Who am I? Where did I come from, and where am I going? What the heck is going on!? Etc. Not having good answers can give us a sense that something really basic and important is...missing. Yet some folks avoid questions like these. We seek them out.
The Search for Intimacy
We all want relationships that are...well, whatever the opposite of "dysfunctional" is. Why do so many relationships begin like a fairy tale and end like a train wreck? We explore the best science, the world's clearest thinking, the most penetrating insights we can dig up from all of human history to help us figure this out.
The Fight for Sanity
Mental clarity and emotional strength. Finding sanity in this crazy world can be a dogfight. And that's what we explore here: inner strength. Training to become an Emotional Jedi. The search for self-mastery. The Fight for Sanity.
The Pursuit of Vitality
Real health in your body, deep down in your bones: "vitality," life force, that glow, strength, spunk, verve, vigor. Which means figuring dodging all the phony misinformation overload out there, and stick, instead, to the solid, wholesome, and well, real about the vital energy we burn not just to stay alive, but to really live.
