I am Michael Kearney, a Celt and a lover of birds and trees. I have worked for over 40 years as a doctor with people who are very seriously ill and at the end of their lives and have seen how, when someone feels “held” (meaning having a sense of deep inner security) by someone or something they trust; they are able to face uncertainty without fear. If my spiritual path were a tapestry, the two greenest threads are Buddhism and Living Earth connection practices, summarized by the Buddha and Mother Bodhi tree sitting together. What I wish to do with the rest of my life is to find ways to help young people to experience this in ways that will work for them, whatever unfolds.
