When I was 10 years old, I loved to watch Star Trek. I loved Spock. I loved logic and reason.
“The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”

It just made sense. What’s up with these silly things we call emotions? It’s just not rational. Knowledge is power. If I could understand it, then I had power over it. Or so I thought! I was living in my head. I was as far from living in the present moment as I could get. I was living in four year increments from high school, to college, to medical school, to the next future goal. After more than 20 years of education, getting out of my head was not easy.

Everything has lead me to this place, and now I’d like to share the journey with an interactive online study group, along with this blog and my newsletter.
