PHILOSOPHICAL CONSULTATIONS :      

FIRST: Let's address some of the most commonly asked questions pertaining to this service

1) What is a Consulting philosopher?

Answer: Before this question can be answered with  any degree of legitimacy one must begin by first acknowledging the fact that this field is birthed by philosophy -hence philosophical views, perspectives, and interpretations.  Thus unavoidably leading to varying definitions. Conversely all of which- regardless of their differences  - so long as they are sincerely expressed and genuinely believed to be true- should be equally valued and respected.

Having made note of that.......  my personally definition / meaning of a  "Consulting philosopher " lies within careful yet simplistic dissection of the two words themselves.......

Consulting :  meaning to engage  for the purpose of giving and/or receiving expert advice.

Philosopher : ( veiwed from both the prefix and the suffix)  philo - meaning love .......and  sophy and/or sophia - meaning wisdom. In short the word philosopher means one who loves wisdom. 


2) What type of person can benefit from a Consulting philosopher?

Answer: anyone who is looking for answers and perspectives that are "Outside the box". Particularly those who may be at a major crossroads in their life or who may be in the process of making pivotal decision and is interested in acquiring as much quality information from all views and perspective( common and uncommon) so to help them make the best and most well-informed decision possible.

3) What are the right type of questions and situations  are presentable  to a Consulting philosopher?

Answer:  The particular type of philosophical consultation that I provide- IS NOT scholarly - but rather   "EXPERIENTIAL PHILOSOPHY" that is based on my very own real life experiences, research, study and practices. It is intended to be 100% all encompassing of ANY & ALL subject matter - and absolutely NO topic is considered taboo. 


YOUTH ( and young adult ) MENTORING & COUNSELING :

These services  are uniquely designed to assist youths and young adults ( particularly, but not limited to those in the Inner City and less fortunate) in the discovery, and/or fortification of self worth, self discipline,, integrity, and ambition.

This is not the typical cookie cutter one-size-fits-all youth service. But rather a very comprehensive approach to determining and establishing programs that are carefully and precisely calibrated to serve the INDIVISUAL'S very own unique personality, situation and circumstance.

My curriculums are designed to encourage and inspire  while simultaneously  providing strenuous  warnings of the potential price to be paid for living a life that is outside of socially acceptable  conduct and behavior

This aspect  of the  services is achieved by way of the heart felt sharing of stories that are based on my real life experiences of sorrow, hurt, pain and tragedies that are  balanced and synthesized with  real life stories of beauty and overcoming that instills and revitalizes a true sense of hope.

NOTE: please send me an email for more specificities pertaining to the curriculum. 


FITNESS

According to some religious teachings the body is referred to as being the temple of God and/or the Holy Spirit. Similarly some ancient spiritual teachings consider the body to be a type of biomechanical computer that has been created and fashioned by The Universal Intelligence (i.e. God, Source, etc...), for the sole purpose of The Creator experiencing itself in human form. In any event the aforementioned teachings and beliefs serve to highlight the fact that the human body is of extreme importance and amounts to much more than just what we see when we look into the mirror. 

Thus at Tree Of Life Outreach places a keen emphasis on prioritizing high quality maintenance of ones body via sound nutritional practices,and regularly performed fitness training consisting of cardiovascular strengthening exercises, flexibility training and strategically structured weight lifting routines for all ages ( 8 yrs and older).

As with all services provided by the ministry, this too is based on EXPERIENCE ( over four decades ) as well as sound and continued research along with proven techniques and strategies in all regards.
