Hello friends!

Mysticism is the antidote to fundamentalism. I'm not the first to say it, but I sure do believe it.

I also believe mysticism is the foundation of healthy spirituality, characterized by love, hope, optimism, and mercy.

Mysticism — including the core spiritual practice of contemplation — inspires creativity and the quest for peace and social justice. It is a key to a meaningful and joyful life.

Through my blog, my books, and my poetry, I seek to share the wisdom of the great mystics with readers like you.

When you become a patron of my writing, you become part of a circle of contemplatives who join me in my hope to introduce as many people as possible to the wisdom of the mystics.

I hope you will join with me on the mission to share the message of the mystics with everyone who seeks a deeper spirituality in our time.

Your pledge — starting at just $1 a month — makes it possible for me to keep writing and to keep creating new content inspired by the mystics. Depending on the level of your support, you can receive never-before-published poetry, meditations, and other writing, giving you advance access to my work as it unfolds.

Please make your pledge today — and thank you!

Yours on the journey,


P.S. I understand that not everyone has time to read everything I write. But think about this: every blog post is a new opportunity for someone to discover the wisdom the Christian mystics and the beauty of contemplative spirituality for the first time. When you become a patron of my blog, you are helping others to find the beauty of mystical, contemplative Christianity.

I am often asked to recommend a mystical companion to the Christian Bible. Such a book needs to be written, and I would love to do it. But it will take considerable research and study, let alone the writing time. Support at this level can make it happen, and patrons will be the first to know of the project's status and progress.
