I’m Tom Childers, and I live with my partner and my cat in Fairfax, CA. I coach and facilitate journey work and microdosing with plant sacraments.
This blog began as a chronicle of house construction, and has evolved into stories of my personal journey through many years of intense change and evolution. My wife Nancy and I finished building our lovely home in 2008, where I have lived ever since.
Nancy passed away in late 2011, after a difficult year with leukemia.
I study Tibetan Buddhism at Sukhasiddhi in Fairfax, and energy and journey work in native American traditions. I’ve retired from my 40-year career as a software engineer, taking more time to travel and explore worlds both inner and outer. Namasté and warmest regards, as you explore this little reflection of my life and awareness.
Gratitude is independent of any situation, circumstance, person or experience. When you connect with this true inner joy, you feel bliss for no reason. Simply being alive to gaze at the stars, and appreciating the miracle of life itself, brings you happiness.
– Deepak Chopra
Tom, I had no idea of this enormous change in your life. To be honest, it took my breath away. Such loss is hard to fathom. In reading, noticing you are also Buddhist, I can understand more. It does change how we see things, how life appears. I knew I liked you, we both did. Talk soon M
