What’s An Article About Grizzly Bears Doing in the Psychotherapy Networker?

July 15th, 2010 at 14:29

As you can imagine, I’m really pleased that the Psychotherapy Networker decided to publish my article, “Seeking the Silence,” in their July/August 2010 issue. Actually, it’s not just about encountering grizzlies in the Alaskan wilderness, though that’s part of it. Editor Rich Simon was most interested in what prompted me to go to remote wildernss locations by myself for weeks at a time. He asked, “What’s it like when you’re by yourself for such an extended period of time? Do you get lonely? Scared? How did you come to decide to do this? Have your experiences changed you over the years that you’ve made these trips?”

You can find out the answers to these and other questions by downloading a pdf of the article from the home page of Let me know what you think of “Seeking the Silence.” I’d really appreciate your comments. I’ve also added some new features to Again, any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Next week I’ll describe my plans to canoe the North Fork of the Koyukuk River for a two weeks in Alaska’s Gates of the Arctic National Park.

Take Care,
