About the RFB (Updated 5-13)


EDIT: May 6 2013: OK guy’s this blog is full of wonderful materials on all things transpersonal, but it has taken a swing toward poetry and the arts for a moment. Updates to the resource library will be sparse. Check out the poetry and art. Easy links to them can be found in the right hand column. 😉


“And when he was yet a great way off, his Father saw him, and ran.”

The Running Father Blog

The RunningFather blog is a forum and archives on the “transpersonality” of spirituality as it is reflected in religion, philosophy, psychology, science, mysticism, metaphysics, education and the study of consciousness, as well as spiritual disciplines and practices and the science and psychology behind them.

The Running Father Blog

In the questing spirit of the aging Dr. Claudio Naranjo, I hope to generate fresh discussion for the thinking man on issues of practical spirituality, with my ultimate hope being a forum that will strengthen and illuminate our understanding of ourselves and others, and set us on course to a life guided by the “Law of God written on our hearts”, which is our common Spiritual Ground.

The Running Father Blog

“The Running Father” is another title given to the parable of the Prodigal Son.

Sincerely, Jim Aldrich,  The RunningFather Blog

    I am greatly honored, Sir. I write, mostly but not limited to, Foreign Policy. Very seldom, I find myself out of topics on my blog. I have nothing against religion, religious beliefs or current trends in organized religion.
    However, being a person, who has not only studied the great teachers, for instance, Martin Luther but dabbed in comparative religious behavior.
    I hope and pray that your quest to reach people succeeds.

    …and I am Sid Harth @elcidharth
