the freedom to question

exploring life paradoxes and dilemmas. learning not to know.

philosophical-spiritual explorer

Through my philosophical inquiry and spiritual search I have been discovering the value of paradox, unresolved dilemmas, and open questions for remaining free, fluid, and dynamic. I created this site in order to deepen this discovery and its implications by sharing it with others.

Some background: I was born in 1958 and grew up in a village in Israel. After studying tai chi, medicine, and the philosophy of science, I lived for two years in a Zen monastery in Japan and for more than two decades in a small community with a spiritual/philosophical orientation in the United States called EnlightenNext. These days I live with my wife, Ruti, and Corgi (our dog) in the village where I grew up, earn a living by translating pharmaceutical papers from Japanese to English, serve as executive director of an NGO called The Education Spirit Movement and write books. I published two books on the connection between formal education and philosophical/spiritual inquiry (Education: Essence and Spirit and Education: The Human Questions) and I am currently working on the next one, Transformative Relationships: Paradoxes and Dilemmas. I also participate in and lead a few collective self-inquiry groups, in which we explore life’s open questions in a philosophical and personal way.
