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.

Discover your Inner Will Power to Live by Your Values

In every moment, we have the chance to feel fully into our present moment, or choose the next thought which our mind has thrown at us to keep us distracted. At what point do you, the consciousness, get in front of the mind-thought chatter that occupies your head minute by minute? Is there an access [...]

Forgiving yourself is the hardest part

By |2019-06-18T19:02:35-07:00June 18th, 2019|Community Conversations|

Last weekend I had the pleasure to join the Landmark Advanced course in Portland. I haven’t done a Landmark program since 2009-2010 when I completed their first program in the Curriculum for Living called the Landmark Forum, and then their two advanced communication courses: Access to Power and Power to Create. I gained a lot [...]

The Secret of Creating Exactly What You Want

By |2019-06-03T18:29:54-07:00June 3rd, 2019|Transitory Thoughts|

One of my favorite parts of a journey is realizing I just got off the train. Let me explain… Often I find myself wishing for the greener side of life (literally: more greenbacks, more green protein shakes, and more time in my favorite place: a lush and verdant forest). Manifestation 101 Formulating a desire, which [...]

Sometimes I fall in love too easily…

By |2019-05-09T14:47:57-07:00May 9th, 2019|Community Conversations|

Ever fall in love at first sight? Contrary to popular opinion, I believe that this happens more often than you give yourself credit for. You DO find other people attractive, right? Researchers say “the most frequently mentioned factor preceding experiences of love was finding certain characteristics of the other person desirable.” So if I’m reading [...]

Would you rather get ahead or get enough?

Around 567 years BCE, Siddhartha Gautama, later to be given the appellation Buddha, was raised sheltered by his father in a palace at the foothills of the Himalayas. One day, while outside the walls of the palace, Siddhartha encountered old age, sickness, and death in the streets of the city over which his family ruled. [...]

When Your Meditation Isn’t So Meditative.

By |2019-04-08T15:48:06-07:00April 8th, 2019|Community Conversations|

My meditation practice has not been peaceful the last few weeks. What’s more is that I’ve been rather lazy in approaching how best to deal with it. It’s almost like I’m stuck in observation mode, just watching myself wallow without jumping in with a strategy or plan. What’s great about that is for once, I’m [...]

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 |2019-08-01T13:07:24-07:00March 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 [...]
