Gary Tzu is a non-dual psychologist and the director of the Addictions Counselling Program at University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada.

Gary enjoys the celebratory ordinariness of his life with his wife, Marcia, and going for long daily runs in the coulees.

He also hosts the annual Paradoxica Non-Dual Psychology Conference....
