“It belongs to the imperfection of everything human that man can only attain his desire by passing through its opposite.”― Soren Kierkegaard
Hello and welcome..
I named this website after the ancient Greek word, Enantiodromia, a concept that describes how things swing back to their opposite when they go too far. I see this principle playing out everywhere — in our personal lives, in society, even in nature — and I think understanding it can help us navigate life's ups and downs.
On E'dromia, you'll find essays where I explore these topics, trying to make complex ideas as easy to understand as possible. I believe in the importance of sharing knowledge and fostering open discussions, so whether you're a fellow therapist, a student, or just someone with a casual interest, I hope you'll find these essays thought-provoking.
Usually starting in seed form as a vaguely conceived metaphor, or in response to a personal need for clarity around certain issues, I experience writing these essays as a process of discovery that is as much for myself as it is for the reader.
Besides writing, I'm also passionate about painting, drawing and photography. You'll see some of my artwork posted here too.
Enantiodromia (Ancient Greek: ἐναντίος, romanized: enantios – "opposite" and δρόμος, dromos – "running course") The tendency of things to change into their opposites, especially as a supposed governing principle of natural cycles and of psychological development.
