Relationship as a Spiritual Path- A Personal Perspective by Bill Kastenberg

January 10, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


FREE ADMISSION – 1757 Ashland St., Ashland, OR. One mile west of I-5 Exit 14

“In February 2022, I published a memoir, As a Matter of Heart: A nuclear engineering professor’s life-changing journey from safety to self that tells the story of my quest to discover my authentic self, the person hiding behind a façade I called The Professor and set him free. The memoir also describes my experience as an emotional growth facilitator. In this talk, I will describe my journey with selected readings from my memoir, and describe nine Principles for a compassionate, consciousness, sacred relationship.”

William E. Kastenberg, Ph.D. is a distinguished Professor of Engineering, Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley. During the latter part of his academic career, he team-taught a course with his wife entitled, “Ethics and the Impact of Technology on Society.” During the Covid epidemic, he taught (remotely) a Freshman Seminar entitled, “Ethics in an Age of Existential Crises.”

Following retirement in January 2008, he trained as an emotional growth facilitator, and then worked with clients on healing the wounds of the heart through conscious relationships. As an outgrowth of his academic life as a teacher, advisor, and mentor, he has led men’s groups in exploring healthy masculinity, as well as facilitating individuals and couples in a psycho-spiritual process focused on healing childhood trauma. He and his wife work with couples, especially those in long-term relationships, where one partner or both are retired or near retirement.
