Eureka Springs, Arkansas
Bio: I lived in a small intentional spiritual community for just over a decade. In the autumn of 2014 that chapter of my life came to an unexpected close. I now live in a small hillside cottage with my voluptuous cat, Ruby, and wonderful neighbors just a few stone throws away.
This change challenged my deepest notions of spirituality and inspired me to become more-down-to-earth about what it means to live courageously, efficaciously, with meaning, resilience, and full Heart during this pivotal time in our human and planetary life. I’ve created this blog “Goal Fitness” to sort out my experiences and encourage sharing on this topic.
The fundamental growth challenges put forth in the 28 Rules for Initiation presented by Alice Bailey provide a very general pathway for my posts. However, this is not a Bailey-centric blog and I’m not a Bailey devotee nor do I appreciate academic spiritual debates. I’ve simply found that the progressive challenges presented in the 28 Rules evoke the goal fitness I seek.
Beyond this blog, my life activities include co-creating a small technology business with 3 friends, gardening, eating copious amounts of vegan food, and trying my hand at fiction writing. I’m also working toward a yellow belt in karate.
I am grateful to my dear friend, Miguel Angel, who has encouraged me to pursue practical spiritual living with gusto.
