About Matthew Koren

Matthew Koren is a personal life coach and spiritual development guide at Spirit in Transition. As he was growing up, he always felt drawn to fantastical, magical things. He read fantasy and sci-fi voraciously, and often his head would be so deep in the clouds with the visions he saw before him, that he’d fail to hear what was going on around him. Determined to ground his visionary experiences into this reality, Dorjee began seeking tools and trainings to help ground these experiences into his everyday life. He explored such diverse modalities as meditation and mindfulness, shamanism and plant-based medicines, ancient mystery school initiations, and modern psychology principles to support his clients. He founded Spirit in Transition in 2015, a community of conscious creators actively evolving their potential to help bridge the gap between who they are now and who their soul wants them to be. He invites you to join us for any of our spiritual development classes and events.

How to Create your Own Insta-Ritual!

By |2019-03-22T17:30:16-07:00March 22nd, 2019|Transitory Thoughts|

I got home late on the Spring Equinox from a seminar I didn’t really want to go to that evening. I knew it before I even left, and I’m kicking myself for the wasted time in traffic getting there. But listening and responding to my body/energy level needs is still an aspect of myself that [...]

Healing from the Inside Out: The Secrets of Your DNA Revealed

By |2019-03-16T15:32:53-07:00March 7th, 2019|Health and Wellness|

The experience of not reaching our potential, whether it be potential energy level and productivity during the workday, not feeling as if we have made enough progress on our dreams or even the potential of how functional we are in our relationships can result in us feeling like something is holding us back. At [...]

Alchemy Phase 3: Separation

By |2019-03-07T18:18:08-07:00February 26th, 2019|Transitory Thoughts|

In the last post of this series, we covered the second stage of alchemy: dissolution. We also reminded ourselves that it’s important to remain non-attached. At the same time, you will not complete the alchemy process powerfully without uncovering your ‘burning desire’ that drives you towards your goal. Without the attractive force of this [...]

How to speak the language of the heart

By |2019-02-15T17:18:19-07:00February 15th, 2019|Transitory Thoughts|

I was recently at dinner with some friends and our conversation turned metaphysical. You know, as you do on cold, wintery Pacific NW evenings. Warmed by the glow of the fire, we immersed ourselves in the topic of growth and consciousness expansion. Particularly, we were interested in the nature of learning and how people integrate [...]

Everything Changes When We See Ourselves

By |2019-02-12T16:08:21-07:00January 18th, 2019|Transitory Thoughts|

When I was young, I wanted nothing more than to be Merlin, the magician. Our weekly trips into town to visit the library from our rural Ohio farm allowed me to fill my imagination with epic fantasy stories and romantic Arthurian legends. I could almost see the mists of Avalon opening before me when the [...]

Healing is first on the path to wellness

By |2019-01-04T12:01:43-07:00January 4th, 2019|Health and Wellness|

When awakening we experience a full range of emotions: joy, bliss, anger, grief and confusion to name a few. This tide of emotions is like how we might feel looking in the mirror and realizing we never went to the dentist until our mid-thirties. Suddenly there is a revealing of years of covered up decay. [...]

Identity, Power and Freedom—It all comes from Within

By |2018-12-20T11:53:52-07:00December 20th, 2018|Transitory Thoughts|

In one of my recent coaching sessions, the topic of power came up. With the end of the year and sales goals looming, my client was beginning to stress about upcoming deadlines and things she needed to do to succeed in her business. I took her along a journey to understand the nature of power [...]

In searching for truth, I found Spiritual

By |2018-12-20T14:56:35-07:00November 16th, 2018|Community Conversations|

As a young man, I ventured out into the world searching for truth, not for ‘spiritual things.’ I was curious about why things worked the way they did, and realized understanding human consciousness was the key to most of the things I was interested in. In my experience, that requires a peek into the [...]

How to Experience Love

By |2018-12-19T16:55:04-07:00October 10th, 2018|Community Conversations|

Photo by Leonardo Sanches on Unsplash Bringing love back into your life is a continual process of death and renewal. The world’s wisdom traditions suggest that we cannot know greater levels of love without knowing greater levels of suffering. While some people are turned off by this concept, they still accept simple karma. [...]

Alchemy Phase 2: Dissolution

By |2019-02-26T20:42:17-07:00January 2nd, 2018|Transitory Thoughts|

THE UNIVERSAL SOLVENT Last time, we covered one of the first stages in alchemy, calcination. We also introduced the idea that alchemy is both a physical and spiritual process, and that it gradually refines the consciousness of the practicing alchemist. This insight is key to this whole series of posts, as life sometimes throws us [...]
