This site is a gathering place for people interested in exploring liminal frontiers of experience, the transformative power they conjure, finding ways of moving through them, and living an imaginative and meaningful life.
My interest in liminality originates in a profoundly difficult phenomenon lasting more than two years of my life known as a dark night of the soul. It was an experience that tested my will to survive and, moreover, completely transformed my sense of identity, purpose, and motivation in life.
Of course, not all forms of liminality will take us to our knees, but since the dark night I have learned that liminality permeates the experience of being alive in remarkable ways. I believe that liminality should be a core learning for anyone interested broadening and expanding the experience of being alive.
My focus is on the felt sense and lived experience of liminality in the modern age, not on the theory or history of the rites of passage. Although liminality was developed through the anthropological work of Arnold van Gennep and Victor Turner, I explore liminality and threshold experiences in various everyday situations and circumstances.
My basic purpose is to explore ways of moving through liminal frontiers in way that leads to greater individual and collective well-being.
