Dr. Tobin Hart is a father, partner, author, and spiritual ally. Professionally, he is a Professor in a most unusual Psychology department at the University of West Georgia. This department is a radical place where knowledge, wisdom and even love are on the menu as we explore the depth of consciousness and society. He is also co-founder and chair of the ChildSpirit Institute, a non-profit educational and research hub dedicated to understanding and nurturing the spirituality of children and adults.
Dr. Hart is constantly drawn back to where psychology, spirituality and education come together. He tends to draw insight through multiple views ranging from the ancient wisdom traditions to the intimate little stories all around (and within) us to the front edge of science. He finds himself trying to feel and follow those resonances that lead to a sense of communion. He is fascinated by the space created in paradox and tries to hold on to a sense of wonder. Dr. Hart believes in the need for a balance of love and wisdom, presence and creation.
