Hello and Welcome!

I’m an independent writer interested in the intersection of politics, culture, and spirituality. I’ve worked as a political science professor, policy researcher, and yoga teacher, and am the author or editor of five books, and many popular articles and professional reports.

In recent years, my writing has focused the socio-cultural dimensions of contemporary yoga and mindfulness practices. Now, I’m shifting gears to revisit the broad issues of liberalism and American political culture that I worked on as a grad student and political science professor a back in the 1980s-90s — this time, however, as an independent writer who’s not beholden to the strictures of academia, and has a lot more life experience besides.
