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:

  1. education and the work of teachers as a spiritual effort, worthy of a theological lens,
  2. the lessons of depth psychology and the knowledge of the unconscious applied to theology and education,
  3. the power and limits of math, science, engineering and their worldview, and
  4. applying all of these to the struggle for human liberation and flourishing, on this Earth, in this time.

Thanks for coming by.
