Hi, I'm Sid! I'm seeking a partner who shares the life values of kindness, open-heartedness, spiritual deepening, playful fun-ness, and energetic awareness.
I’ll begin with my spiritual side. It began as a purely professional inspiration. While working as an attorney- mediator and trainer and aspiring to better serve my clients, I observed a mediation by one who was considered “awake”. I had no context for “awake” but on a practical level I was in awe of the mediators ability to hold, be and spread a heart-resonance which significantly helped transform conflict into harmony. It was beautiful and I wanted those skills to better serve. I invested the next year full-time to try to “get it” but in the process realized that “getting it” was going to be more of a challenge than learning a new subject in school or skill set. Eventually, the professional motivations became secondary to expanding the heartspace and deepening awareness. Over these fifteen years, I’ve been graced by opportunities to spend much time with Gangaji, Byron Katie, Adyashanti, John DeRuiter, Issac Shapiro, Reb Zalman and to travel globally to be with other inspiring characters. Along the way, I've also served as a facilitator and sometimes a teacher of Nonviolent Communication, The Work of Byron Katie, Big Mind Voice Dialogue and Chakra-Based Energetic Playtime. Today, with all said and done, I’m still working on the “getting it” but informed with gratitude and enjoyment of what is. Recently, I began a new chapter with a move to Encinitas and joining in the aspects of the town that resemble a spiritual disneyland.
Moving on to my personality and lifestyle for chemistry -- I view myself as playful, creative, adventurous, compassionate and sometimes sophisticated. I’m often health-conscious with many exceptions and can often be spotted dining outside Whole Foods; I drink alcohol rarely in order to join with others on special occasions; I’m a jogger and enjoy playing most sports but not exceptional at any of them. The Myers Briggs Typology says that my life perspective is most informed by intuition, feeling and extroversion. I seem to do best with friends and partners who share to some degree those three proclivities.
That enough, yes, for an introduction? If a resonance, please let me know. I prefer connecting with women within 150 miles of Encinitas.
