What is Cupbearing?

Dear Traveller, 

   Come pour out all the waters of your anguishes and joys into my cup & feel REFRESHED! As I go about my duty while wandering the world,  I often am privileged to act as a “friendly ear” for those in need of one. It’s an opportunity to allow my brother or sister to be truly heard!  By draining away what’s flooding the soul, we clean the world one spot at a time! If my prespective is asked, it will based in encouraging the internal self-liberation/healing of the client. My Humanistic clergy principles are based in freedom, harmony, & the capacity to LOVE!  This is a FREE service, so feel free (see what I did there lol) to reach out & schedule a date/time that best works for you. Catch you in the comments section! Catch you there! 

Yours Upon the Way,

WHAT I DO-COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Dear Traveller, 

Love is an action. A matter of conscience & conviction guide me while granting me the fortitude to help address suffering in the world as it is. I believe that clergy, regardless of belief, should act in the world; working alongside the people and understanding them for who they are, each and everyone of them. 

  Because of my belief in direct ACTION , I’ve been been privileged to help others via trauma-informed pastoral care . My clergy work has brought me to a variety of situations within the fields of the human/helping services, education, & ministry respectively.  I’ve been lucky to help everyone from the developmentally disabled to being fully present for those in the midst of crisis. I’ve been fortunate enough to mentor, teach & LISTEN to all sorts of people down on their luck and trying to move up. My goal is to help others embrace equanimity, love, & perseverance! Helping others accept and unify with their challenges is a duty that many hands partake in & it gives me great meaning to my duty. Because of the dynamic, human-centered nature of my work, I’ve been privileged to have worked with compassionate, responsive, & observational comrades in a variety of secular & faith-based organizations in an effort to transform human anguish. 

   Finally, getting my hands dirty with my fellow human brothers & sisters has broughts boons to my experience such as camaraderie, faith in works, mindfulness, love, humanity, & other teachings that words cannot sing. It’s been a matter of joy and honor to be aligned with others working towards a greater good.

Humanism-A Way of Life


Dear Traveller, 
   What is Humanism? A naturalistic Way of life dedicated to the cultivation of Human & other sentient beings in the here and now via our compassion, creativity, & reason. A Way of seeing how over 14 billion years of cosmic evolution sings its glory to & through us. 
   We witness the  promise & principles of Humanistic thought throughout all human eras & cultures such as ancient China, Greece, India & parts of Africa , weaving its threads within and without religious, spiritual, & secular traditions. Principles of justice, harmony, ardor for Nature, compassion, reason, doubt, & a relentless pursuit of bettering the human condition. The kaleidoscope  of history reveals these truths, be it the humanity and doubt of Lao Tzu or Rosseau concerning the social order of their respective eras, or the insight of a Steven Pinker concerning our remarkable progress in this new age. Humanism  is entirely concerned with the here & now sees the magic of reality as devoid of any supernatural origin. The various gods & spirits we create merely mirror the raw, formative power of Nature; power no different in origin than the way the eagle builds its nest in the mountains, or the spider weaving its web in the garden. Yes, marvel at how subtle & mysterious this “everyday ” happening is. What is this vastness?  Driving along the road of mystery through the vehicles of the sciences, arts, & humanities; Humanism seeks to cultivate that natural power in accord with our environment & serves as a restoration of natural divinity & dignity. We see as sacred both the spiral dance of the Milky Way and a leaf falling from its branch. We see as sacred as lending an ear and/or hand to any Traveller walking this sojourn.The transience of life affords us not only the opportunity to appreciate how wonderful Being itself is, but also allows us a chance to meet  suffering head-on & work to transform it.  

   In my meditation & clergy work, I’ve been fortunate to witness what is golden & green & what is savagely Crimson. Quarks, gluons, & hope seem to be what holds the human being together, & it is my calling to help us through our respective journies.  

  In conclusion, I’d be delighted to offer this life-affirming Way of life as a practical way of creating meaning & honoring humanity’s place within our Kosmos. The Dao says “The Human being follows the earth, earth follows the Kosmos, The Kosmos follows the Way, the way follows what is Natural”. I hope that what I’ve offered is enough to help you get lost in the wonder of it all. Thank you. 
Yours upon the Way,
