He has practised zen all his adult life and has a penchant for arcane mysticism especially from the 13th century.

It is the intention of this podcast to explore Why on Earth we , as humans, have gotten so far off track un our relationship to our planet, each other and thus to ourselves. This podcast will therefore decidedly not focus on only one topic but will certainly zoom in on one vital balance, that between the East and the West, the Inner and the Outer, the Male and the Female, the spiritual and the material. He will interview people you will discover have been tackling the Pacific Rim Divide, the Samurai curtain, the communication gulf that actually does exist between our left brains and our right. Intuition and reason will thus be conjoined!
