The Coronation: Forging A New, More Compassionate Normal

For years, normality has been stretched nearly to its breaking point, a rope pulled tighter and tighter, waiting for a nip of the black swan’s beak to snap it in two.

Big Soul and Little Soul: Finding Our Way Back Home
The once-seamless connection between our spiritual nature and our physical form is torn.

How Life Ordeals Can be Used as Chrysalis Crises
For as long as I can remember I’ve been told there are two things we can count on in this world: that everything changes, and that there always will be a certain amount of suffering in life.

What Is Your Future? The Amazing Power of Denial

What Is Your Future? The Amazing Power of DenialPolarized, compartmentalized reality has us viewing ourselves as separate, not subject to the same laws, and forever alone. This leaves us vulnerable to a consumer-driven society.

Tomorrow Land: Life Changing Questions Begin With Two Words: ‘What If’

Tomorrow Land: Life Changing Questions Always Begin With Two Words: ‘What If’The future or the unknown isn’t “out there” but already alive within us – pre-existing in our bodies, our senses, our feelings, our thoughts, our spirits or our consciousness.

Looking for the Gold in the Ashes of Pain

Looking for the Gold in the Ashes of Pain
When we’re in severe or chronic pain, our normal life is not available to us in the way it used to be. Instead, living in pain feels like being taken out of life.
