Welcome! My name is Andy Tix. For the past 25 years or so, I have dedicated myself to the quest of living a good life. Part of my quest involved completing a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at the University of Wisconsin at Madison and a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at the University of Minnesota. My quest also has led me to focus much of my research, writing, and teaching on the psychology of religion and spirituality. I currently share in the quests of my students in the Psychology and Religious Studies programs at Normandale Community College in Bloomington, Minnesota.
In this blog, I share my reflections on a variety of topics, including psychology, religion, education, genocide, awe, love, and peace. I recommend several of my writings at the right of this page, which have appeared in a variety of outlets, such as Biola University’s Center for Christian Thought, the Chronicle of Higher Education, MinnPost, Psychology Today, the Star Tribune, Ruminate Magazine, and the Woolf Institute’s center for interfaith relations.
