I like to think of myself as a spiritual guy. I have no formal training, but at times I feel the love of jesus, the plentitude of ganesh, the compassion of buddah, the wisdom of torah, the power of the hohly speerit, the glory of allah, the chaos and lust of kali
and sometimes I seek structure in the i ching.
My only regular church when I was grewin' up was in nebraska
with my grandparents
. I think it may have been calvinist, it was certainly protestant.
My brother and I used to tour Chicago area churches, I remember visiting a mormon service.
Besides that, a lot of the kids I went to school with were Jewish; I attended bar and batz mitzvahs by the score.
I had a shrink for many years, when the shit got really bad, mom sent me to ted, my rabbi. I celebrated my first Passover with him.
I like writing and saying grace, taking a moment, beat to recognize nourishment and gathering before a meal

At swarthmore, I studied shamanism
therein, I took a shamanic journey, examined the new age (including the the celestine prophecy), was possessed by flaming arrow spirit.
There I also studied a bit of buddhism. I thunk about the buddhodisty of the internet. Also Thich Nhat Hanh, I examined my life in light of his interbeing.
spirituality's got quite a varied visage
