In addition to academic degrees in three different subjects, I am a life long learner. I cannot recall a time when I was not studying something. I was a doctoral student at the Santa Barbara Graduate Institute in California, where for one year I formally studied the emerging field of somatic psychology. More recently, I have become interested in healing practices in indigenous cultures in general and the shamanic practices of the Peruvian Andes in particular.
