I’m a math teacher theologian Zen Buddhist New Yorker.
I have studied and practiced engineering, progressive math education, Western philosophy, information technology, Buddhist meditation and ethics, pastoral care, Christian theology, depth psychology, and community organizing.
I call myself a theological engineer. I value creativity, efficiency, group work, consensus, skillful means, and practice.
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 lens,
- the lessons of depth psychology and the knowledge of the unconscious applied to theology and education,
- the power and limits of math, science, engineering and their worldview, and
- applying all of these to the struggle for human liberation and flourishing, on this Earth, in this time.
Thanks for coming by.
