Memorial Day

Given that it’s Memorial Day, a day to honor those who have given their all for something they believed in, I had a moment to think about what I would fight to protect. I was brought up in South Africa at the height of the Apartheid years. As a young kid it was easy to… Continue Reading

Spirituality and Relationships

I was asked to contribute to a book a friend is writing on Radical Acceptance in relationships and it made me think about how the different religious and spiritual paradigms would approach such a question.
