I’m a math-teacher theologian Zen-Buddhist New-Yorker.
I have studied and practiced engineering, education, theology, depth psychology, and all of the above applied to the struggle for social justice.
I call myself a “theological engineer.” I hope to take the wisdom of religious traditions and the structures of western theology, and apply these to pressing matters of human need with efficiency and creativity.
I want to talk about transcendence, reality, spiritual practice and spirituality, mindfulness, meditation, and meaning; but also education, racism, psychology, poverty, math and science, and the news. Ultimate concern is not separate from daily concern — the ultimate is found among and within the daily, right here and now.
This blog is primarily interested in:
- education and the work of teachers as a spiritual effort, worthy of a theological perspective,
- the lessons of depth psychology and the knowledge of the unconscious applied to both theology and education,
- the liberating power and the limits of math, science, and engineering and their worldview
- marginalization and oppression in its many forms — but in These United States, that will mostly mean race and class — and what education, theology, and psychology can and should do to shut it all down.
…and more. If any of those are important to you, you’re my audience. I want to hear from you.
Thanks for coming by — let’s get to it.
