Biography

You can find the details of my education and career by going to www.northstarguidance.com and clicking on the link "About Dr. Goulet."

On this Blog, however, it is more important for me that you know that I am, and have always been, most passionate about the "deeper issues" of life as well as helping others to get more connected with, and find their true meaning and purpose in, the "Source of All Life."

I have have been very much aware of an inner calling to do this since my youth and I have tried to respond to that calling in a variety of ways throughout my life.

The intention of this Blog is to provide a forum to discuss the journey of awareness and connection with that which is greater than all of us - the journey of personal and spiritual renewal.

In the following excerpts taken from his book Adam’s Return, Richard Rohr tells us that:

“The Latin word limen means “threshold.” Liminality is an inner state and sometimes an outer situation where people can begin to think and act in genuinely new ways. It is when we are betwixt and between, have left one room but not yet entered the next room, any hiatus between stages of life, stages of faith, jobs, loves, or relationships.

It is that graced time when we are not certain or in control, when something genuinely new can happen. We are empty, receptive, an erased tablet waiting for new words.

Nothing fresh or creative will normally happen when we are inside our self-constructed comfort zones, only more of the same. Nothing original emerges from business as usual.

Liminal space is the ultimate teachable space. It will almost always feel counterintuitive like a waste of time and not logical or rational at all. In fact, it must break your sense of practicality and function and move you into the nonfunctional world for a time.

In liminal space we choose the chaos of the unconscious over the control of explanations and answers. And, people have to be taught and guided in how to live in such an uneasy place.” Chapter 12
