Some of the most important influences for the ideas on my blog are from the following philosophers: Plato, Aristotle, the Buddha, Augustine, Mengzi, Laozi, Rousseau, Kant, Hegel, Herbert Marcuse, Erich Fromm, Paulo Freire, bell hooks, Martin Luther King, Jr., Paul Tillich, and Thich Nhat Hanh.
I also draw on spiritual ideas from the Quaker tradition (which is my own tradition) and other spiritual writers like Thomas Merton, Marianne Williamson, and the book A Course in Miracles.
Lastly, I appreciate the work of Brene Brown, Kristen Neff, Angela Duckworth, and Carol Dweck.
