"There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious." C. G. Jung. On the edge of Weereewa (Lake George), I walked the labyrinth in the golden light of a magical afternoon. The wind turbines turned into beacons of light, the threatening storm became a halo, and I began to wake up.



I am a Quaker, a photographer, and a practitioner and facilitator in Compassionate Communication, based on Non Violent Communication(TM) the work of Marshall Rosenberg.

The picture to the left is called Making the Darkness Conscious, and was taken on Weereewa (Lake George) in February 2015. It represents my quest for peace through the exploration of my inner landscape and I am often reminded of the saying "The truth will set you free but first it will make you miserable."

Learning Non Violent Communication has been part of that process.

Photography is my latest form of self-expression. I have spent most of my life as a musician, and some of it as a writer.
