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.

Everything Changes When We See Ourselves

By |2019-01-18T14:55:49+00:00January 18th, 2019|Community Conversations|

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+00:00January 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+00:00December 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+00:00November 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+00:00October 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 |2018-12-19T16:55:05+00:00January 2nd, 2018|Uncategorized|

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 [...]

Get Rid of Fear Once and For All

By |2018-12-19T16:55:05+00:00December 7th, 2017|Community Conversations|

There’s nothing predictable about our journey here, and we’re not well-served living with anything less than our complete passion and intensity. I believe a true journey is an adventure defined by the lack of a clear destination. Or not knowing exactly where you are going or how to get there. Or that your success is not guaranteed. A potential [...]

History Kicks Back: Magic, Religious discomfort, and Drama

By |2018-12-19T16:55:05+00:00May 1st, 2017|Community Conversations|

This is the second post in a four-part series describing a brief history of humanity’s attempts to define magic (here's the first post). In this post, I explore some specific points in Western history worth our attention when discussing the history which the word “magic” has weathered over time. A voluminous quantity of writing from [...]

How to Steal Power from the Gods: Myths of Trickery, Fire and Divine Paradox

By |2018-12-19T16:55:06+00:00March 29th, 2017|Transitory Thoughts|

Let’s take a quick step into cultural mythology.  One of my favorite myths is the story of sacred thieves or tricksters.  Lewis Hyde calls tricksters beings that “violate principles of social and natural order, playfully disrupting normal life and then re-establishing it on a new basis.”  It’s a really cool trope: most often a being [...]
