Roy "Wes" Westbye Cutting

I was born in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. I didn't meet my dad until I was nearly 2 as he was a medic at the front in Europe. He returned and we moved to Amherst, MA. where I was raised, matriculated through Amherst Public Schools (with 2 years at Vermont Academy) until interrupted by the wild 60s.

I participated in that extraordinary decade's extra-curricular activities, hitched around the continent several times, and lived in various localities, and had too many menial jobs to mention before settling down in 1970 in NYC for 25 years.

During the early part of this time 5 brothers came along to keep me company; they still do. In NYC I failed in, then succeeded in operating a small construction company engaged primarily in cabinet making and renovating apartments and lofts in Manhattan. I married... and divorced. I attended Hunter college where I involved myself in an independent study program with a focus on comparative religion and philosophy with a side focus on business administration at Baruch Collage.

I also became involved in The Pathwork which is a practical spiritual path that addresses the individual's experience at the intersection of mundane human life, psychology and spirituality. I taught Pathwork studies classes and became a councilor in that discipline. When the 86 unit apartment building I was living in on West 92nd Street converted to cooperative ownership I participated in a leadership capacity, organizing the tenants in order to speak with one voice in negotiations with the seller.

In 1989 I met my current wife. We married in 1995 and in 1998 we moved to our home in Willamsville, VT. I have 3 step-children and 4 grandchildren that live too far away (west coast). I am now semi-retired and involved in the ownership and management of 32 apartments that include a building in Yonkers NY, Brattleboro VT, and Greenfield, MA.

I am drawn to help and support Sojourns because of its-cross disciplinary healing model, and the desire to heal at the root cause of the issue. I think that this approach to health is one of the deepest and most important evolving events a human being can come to terms with, understand, and enact within their own lives.

For years now, I feel a sense of peace and wellness the second I walk thru the front door of this place.
