We’re very happy to announce Dr. Bob Weathers as a new trustee on the KWGF Board of Trustees. Our dear friend and colleague Lynne Feldman had to resign from the Board due to personal issues. Thank you, Lynne, for your service. We love you.
I have known Dr. Bob Weathers for a number of years, both as a friend and as a colleague, and I have found him to be a man of great erudition, wisdom, compassion, humor, and loving kindness. Now let us hear from Bob in his own words.
I first encountered Ken’s writings at the beginning of graduate school, starting in 1979. He was young and brilliant. I was . . . young. His ideas formed the basis of my entire doctoral studies, in psychology and religion, and led to my corresponding very helpfully (and gratefully) with him through my mid-1980s dissertation on mindfulness meditation.
I’ve taught Ken’s materials across the decades, from A Sociable God to Sex, Ecology, Spirituality to Marriage of Sense and Soul. I doubt there’s a graduate student in psychology whom I’ve taught or supervised who hasn’t been directly influenced by Ken’s enormous contributions.
This opportunity to give back now, even in some small way, in deep appreciation for all Ken has been in my personal and professional life, is my greatest joy and privilege.
