What I Love to Teach

I recently sent this letter out to my connections in Calgary, AB, Canada, but then also felt it was relevant to you all on the FM ning, as you come to learn more about me and my teaching. 

As part of my "landing" (still in transition in returning to Canada, Calgary, after 20 years away)... there's some good clarity arriving of late as to my teaching priorities that I offer (listed below). I wish to share this clarity with you, as not meant necessarily to be anything more than that,…

I have just written a new Tech Paper 75.pdf entitled "HYPNOSIS TO FEARGNOSIS: An Introduction to Trance-Formations" (click on for pdf), below is the Abstract. I see this as an important contribution to Feariatry:

"I'm Not All That Impressed by Love"

This line came to me a few days ago, in journal reflective writing: "I'm not all that impressed by love." As it goes, spontaneous and empassioned ideas like this do come once in awhile, and mostly I just leave them to sit in the journal, and rarely if ever are they discovered again by me. But this one was different... 

I have had several tensions (if not subtle conflicts) on my psyche (soul) for sometime. As a writer and philosopher this is not unusual, they create some of the best…

The Fear Standard: Book by T. Schultz

It continually astounds me how I find new books on "fear" as the focus of the authors, this one was published 14 years ago, and I never saw it show up in my searches... but there you go, it's a 'new age' self-help type book but this author does some interesting things in creating categories of "types of fear" (simplifying complexity is her…

Founder's Forum: Center for Spiritual Inquiry & Integral Education

Back in 2011, myself and a few young people set up a moodle website for an alternative post-secondary education, but it never got off the ground. I wrote a number of blog articles on Founder's Forum, of which are still accessible if you are interested, albeit, not all of them are on fear or fearlessness directly, they are linked to that work of mine.  The Founder's Forum http://csiie.org/mod/forum/view.php?id=188 The Founder's Forum is a faculty forum space hosted and guided by the Founder of…

Fearlessness Movement: Wikipedia (version) Summary

A few years back I wrote the Wikipedia summary version of how I conceived of the "Fearlessness Movement" as an historical movement of consciousness and political evolutionary initiatives from diverse sources, through time, across cultures. I had seen my entry removed by Wikipedia for no reason, but just the other day Barbara discovered there is an active link still up, so here it is for your reference:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Fear_educator/sandbox  And for a further explication more…
