Please provide a brief storyline or snapshot of
what brought you to this work.
In 1978, I signed up for a weekend seminar with Karl
Pribram to learn about his brain research. I didn’t pay much attention
to the details, other than where to go and when to arrive. It turned
out to be a two-day conversation between Pribram and Pir Vilayat Inayat
Khan at the first or second year of The Omega Institute. I enjoyed Pribram,
and was totally taken by Pir Vilayat. The serendipity of that pairing
was amazing – and I left feeling that I had been drawn to this
weekend by some greater Decision Maker. The weekend changed my consciousness
in fundamental and permanent ways. That was the beginning of my spiritual
journey, which I now cannot separate from my everyday work and experience.
