Casey Flynn is a student of theology and social work at Iliff School of Theology and University of Denver. He graduates in May 2017 and plans to pursue further academic work in religious studies. His tentative Master of Theological Studies thesis title is “Separation Anxieties: Exploring the Tensions of Differentiation in the Apophasis of Pseudo-Dionysius, Plotinus, and Proclus.” He is deeply drawn to apophatic and negative theologies.
Casey’s interests have taken him through a variety of career and work paths. He has worked as a psychotherapist, freelance magazine writer, ESL teacher, and a research associate for a mountain ecology, hydrology and climate program, among others. It is his inquiry into the meaning of things that continues to drive his career orientation. He is a ravenous reader and looks to spiritual, philosophical, and psychological writings to better understand his experience and the experiences of humanity.
After transplanting to Colorado from New York more than ten years ago, a life of snowboarding and ski-bumming in Vail ignited a deep love for the high country. Casey continues to enjoy spending time outside hiking, backpacking, skiing and climbing with his wife, Erin, and their dog Sadie. When at home, he enjoys hanging with their two cats, playing strategy games, and watching films and television series.
