I’ve spent my life pursuing the question, “What am I?”. This question carried me through a PhD in neuroscience and off into mysticism. I was surprised to learn that both neuroscience and ancient wisdom claim that experience/emotion is primary to concepts/mind. Then I stumbled into Leap Forward, and was even more surprised to learn (and experience) that both my desires and my pains stem from my lack of emotional awareness/fluency. Since then, I’ve been journeying… emotionally/spiritually, from head to heart, and physically, around the country in my van (named Pam).
