Secluded 2-floor, renovated barn on beautiful property with farm, Museum, and gardens. Private bedroom up to 2, plus lower level spacious open-floor plan, vaulted ceiling, with lots of light. Common areas shared space with 1 adult woman.
The place is a unique, architectural wonder, on a private historic property known as The Codman Estate. It's best described as nouveau-rustic, having all the modern amenities yet tucked away amidst conservation land.
The space is cozy, clean, comfortable. It has an open feel downstairs and beautiful wood paneling upstairs in the bedrooms. Nice, well-equipped, and organized kitchen.

I've had a strong interest in both science and spirituality for most of my life. I've been motivated to harmonize them in recent years and I have acquired some clarity. Science is a methodical, disciplined approach to acquiring knowledge, but it has a false veneer of cultural and value neutrality. And despite its putative rationality, it's a human activity that largely consists of leaps of faith and irrational beliefs.
Modern spirituality is a mishmash of cultural traditions that consists of large amounts of vague, wishful thinking with some nuggets of incredible insight into the human condition and how to live a fulfilling life. I've applied spiritual teachings in my own life to great effect, and have known for a long time that the great spiritual teachers are well worth studying. I'm a life long learner who is daily deepening my understanding of myself, others, and the world.
I love life, planet earth, and greatly value autonomy, clean air, fresh organically-grown foods, diversity of weather but lots of sunshine, plenty of exercise, satisfying relationships.
