Raphael has a passion for research into themes such as deep ecology, the sublime, and ‘relational being’. This inter-disciplinary research, spanned architecture; art; design; ecology, medicine, therapy and other science; philosophy; and technology. The research encompassed his academic activity, artistic practice, as well as other spheres of his life.
This passion is matched only by his dedication to teaching and nurturing the talents and ideas of others. Here he has inspired and affected profoundly countless individuals.
In 2012, Raphael retired from full-time work to devote himself to a path of meditation and contemplation.
In addition, voluntarily, he is developing gradually, a philanthropic concept, to widen and deepen access for all: to both art and ideas of deep ecology.
By invitation, occasionally he still consults and teaches.
