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 [...]

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?

By |2019-04-20T09:52:53-07:00April 20th, 2019|Community Conversations|

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 [...]

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 [...]

Retreat planned for semi-tropical sanctuary [Guatemala, Feb 2019]

By |2018-12-19T16:55:04-07:00October 16th, 2018|Community Conversations|

This retreat encourages us to go inside, play, and explore our assumptions, stories, and boundaries about who we are and what we can create in this world. We explore a few core questions such as, Who am I now? How did I get here? Where am I going? How do I create? What am [...]

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. [...]

Don’t waste time! Study with a traditional Mystery School.

By |2019-07-31T10:24:21-07:00June 26th, 2018|Community Conversations|

Some people are hesitant to ask me ‘What is a Mystery School?’ One of the oxymorons of being part of the Modern Mystery School is that I want to share with everyone about the personal empowerment and real results that it can bring to your life, but people also think we’re not supposed to talk [...]

Get Rid of Fear Once and For All

By |2018-12-19T16:55:05-07:00December 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 [...]
