About Alex

Inner-space explorer on a mission to open minds and hearts toward a new level of freedom in our relationships. I just dish it out there–more like an amateur chef than an expert–breaking eggs along the way.

Playing the archetype of “the Fool” (I’m an April Fool’s kid, after all) to imperfection, I hope to coax some of you to take the adventure with me: taking more risks, being more vulnerable and making more messes.

I’m a student of Psychology (MA, Humanistic & Transpersonal Psychology), a certified Life Coach (don’t hold it against me), a published author and a lover of books. The depth psychologists have my heart: Carl Jung, Robert Johnson, Erich Neumann and Marie-Louise von Franz, to name a few.

Equal parts mystic and goofball, my wanderings—think “Caine” from Kung Fu—have taken me on a six-month road trip around the U.S., living in Israel for two years and, most recently, a 20,000-mile nautical adventure around the world.

My newest kick is learning more about “Human Design” and “The Gene Keys.” I’m also delving into Gurdjieff. I love interacting with my readers, so feel free to reach out to me.

For my newest articles and my forthcoming e-book on “soul-o traveling,” subscribe to my blog at www.alexobed.com.

Upwards & Onwards!

    Just read your blog for the first time – “The New Sexy: Women Over 40”. I’m 42 – yup, and like you said, confident + liberated + direct + HOT = Sexy. I really like your authentic writing style. Will be following you;)
