In a world which changes hourly, this site is SORELY needed."

The Quest for Reality
It all starts with some basic questions: What's it all about? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going? What the heck is really going on!? And why!? And says who?!? If you ever ask this kind of thing, you've come to the right place; you're among friendlies here. We really dig in and explore it all, in a way that's no-nonsense, practical, open, non-dogmatic, and "see-for-yourself." It's really an adventure.

The Search for Intimacy
We all want relationships that are...well, whatever the opposite of "dysfunctional" is. ("Functional" doesn't really cut it.) Exemplary. Deeply fulfilling. A cut above the usual mediocrity. Why do so many relationships begin like a fairy tale and end like a train wreck? We explore this and more, and bring the best science, the world's clearest thinking, the most penetrating insights we can dig up from all of human history to help us in...The Search for Intimacy.

The Fight for Sanity
An authentic life requires mental clarity and emotional strength. Real clarity of mind and strength of heart, when it's rooted in Reality (see above), means real Sanity (the "good," not the boring kind.) But finding sanity in this crazy world, more often than not, is a fight. 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
Part of an authentic life means real health in your body, deep down in your bones: "vitality," or whatever it is that gives us that glow, strength, spunk, verve, vigor - life - to whatever degree we can feel, embody, and live it. Which means figuring out how to dodge all the phony misinformation that's out there these days, and stick, instead, to the solid, wholesome, and well, real about the vital energy we burn not just to stay alive, but to live. So that's what we're after here: it's The Pursuit of Vitality.
