Humanity has been at this game of separation for eons; us against them, me against you. This separation has shown up in politics, countries, religions, races, you name it. Current world events seem to cut deeper into this wound of separation. As we watch the dynamics of divisiveness tear open our hearts and bleed throughout our communities, I still believe the w...

The morning after the Coronavirus news came out I sat down to meditate. The message I immediately received was, TRUST THIS. Trust what is happening (regardless of the cause). Another message came; ultimately humanity will be more unified because of it. Who could have foreseen the incredible support so many of us are offering to each other? In these last few weeks it has been so beautiful to witnes...

I hear this question from my clients and people I work with all the time:  “I just want to know my purpose.” Of course, we all want to know our purpose. There is a time and place for seriously contemplating this question and offering our skills in the world. However, I think many of us place an unhealthy emphasis on this idea of living our purpose....

Step back towards innocence,

walk through the door of curiosity,

a world of magic could open up…

Glance into the bottomless eyes of another

Let it morph into a long lingering…

into the great mystery.

Gaze until the soul reveals itself 

Allow the dross of your humanity to slough off your weighted shoulders 

The wisdom of the ages just might weave an infinite thread of light betwe...

Two pieces of wood rubbed close together are needed to light a fire.  Once it is lit and burning, suitable conditions are necessary to keep it going. It doesn’t always need a lot of fuel, but it does require dependable attentiveness. And so it is with the sacred flame of our heart; called the hridaya in Sanskrit. The hridaya is recognized as supreme consciousness...


Maybe you have experienced some of these various flavors of gratitude:

Thanks of Astonishment: When a friend, family member or colleague goes out of their way for you. You did that for me? Wow! 



No Words Thank You: Appreciation that vibrates out of you so powerfully, it leaves you without words and often tears gliding down your cheeks.


 
“Whew! This Could Have Been Much Worse” Gratefulness...

Softly waking, I rise to the occasion of another season. I notice a train of thoughts impatiently waiting in line for a mere morsel of my attention like the last available sale item on Christmas Eve. Noticing my breath saves me from the chaos close at hand. The dross of the mind slips off into the last moments of dawn and I merge into my morning meditation. Down to the kitchen, my seven- ingredien...

I’ve heard this so many times in my life; just a slight shift in perception can change everything. The meaning of this statement made it more clear than ever last weekend.

My partner Mark and I were driving back from a weekend of work. He wanted to stop at someone’s house for the possibility of purchasing some tools that were listed on Craigslist; a deal that no wood worker could resist. It was ove...

According to the Toltecs, the human race is currently in transition from a time period known as the 5th sun into the dawning of the 6th sun. The vibration of the 6th sun will be predominate by 2021. The 5th sun is based on the manipulation of everything outside of ourselves; the environment, other people, and situations. It is also based on looking outside of ourselves for the answers or through a...

We are sky-rocketing into a time of momentous change where our ideas about what it is to be feminine and masculine will need to evolve. As a society, we are moving into an era of gender fluidity. According to the website, Genderspectrum, “Gender fluid people move between genders, experiencing their gender as something dynamic and changing, rather than static.” There are also many people that do no...
