I have spent a lifetime exploring spiritual traditions throughout the world--from Siberia to Afghanistan, Syria to Japan. I have also spent a lifetime writing. In my work, I weave together those two threads, combining the spiritual and the artistic, examining the ways writing becomes a way of being in the world. I am trained as a linguistic anthropologist as well as a writer and teach linguistics and creative writing in St. Paul, Minnesota. I have published three books and over seventy articles for newspapers and magazines and currently offer transformational life coaching for writers and aspiring writers.
