About The Phoenix Centre for Creative Living

I start­ed The Phoenix Cen­tre for Cre­ative Liv­ing in the spring of 1982 as a Coun­selling Cen­tre in Kitch­en­er, Ontario. I devel­oped this web­site ini­tial­ly as a place for client resources.

In 1999, I began a week­ly blog, which turned into The Path­less Path. I wrote pret­ty much week­ly for most of the time between then and now; in the last decade our blog has been my main com­mu­ni­ca­tion mode.

I’ve main­tained my Body­work train­ing sec­tion; it’s a great resource for all things Body­work and Breathwork.

And there’s also a sec­tion devot­ed to the reduc­tion of stress and anx­i­ety.

I retired from coun­selling in 2013, and since then, Dar­bel­la and I have been travelling.

I have authored 5 books, and am devot­ing time to paint­ing and pho­tog­ra­phy.

Over the years, I’ve writ­ten sev­er­al books, all focussing on Zen liv­ing and relating.

Each book is designed to clear­ly out­line ways to be self respon­si­ble and aware. You’ll learn the hows and whys, and find exer­cis­es, guides and good old fash­ioned advice. The links here lead to our book site, The Phoenix Cen­tre Press, where there’s more infor­ma­tion on all my books!
