VOCATUS

The wider framework and developmental background of my work comes from a decades long personal journey that incorporates aspects of contemplative Christianity, the embodied practice of yoga, and formal academic training in theology, religious studies, and depth psychology. My dissertation, completed through the California Institute of Integral Studies, developed an alchemical approach to the study of select religious and spiritual texts from east and west.  My research and writing involves the application and integration of post-Jungian, psychoanalytic, and critical theories within the field of religious studies, specifically in the area of comparative mysticism.
