Dr. Gordon Wallace earned a Ph.D. in clinical psychology with a specialization in depth (Jungian) psychology. Over his lengthy career as a psychologist, he provided assessment and psychotherapy treatment to primarily mid-life and older clients. In addition to his clinical practice, he has maintained a mindfulness meditation practice for over thirty years and developed and taught workshops on Jungian psychology and mindfulness meditation to mental health professionals and the general public. Since he retired from clinical practice in 2017, Dr. Wallace has continued as a volunteer to develop and teach mindfulness meditation courses addressing complex issues presented by hospice bereavement and palliative care patients. In addition, he volunteers for bedside vigils with hospice patients nearing the end of life. This book is, in many ways, a summation of his personal and professional life explorations, offering the foundations of a life lived consciously with more ease, satisfaction, meaning and resilience. Dr. Wallace lives in the lower mainland of British Columbia with his wife, Lynn, and their aging golden retriever, Sophie, close to extended family and grandchildren.
