Exploring “Enlightened Self-Interest” (a *Free invitation 4 U!)

Believe me, I have my ups and downs in life. When I’m down, one thing that helps me get up again is to be on the hunt for new solutions I can use for myself and share with others to turn the tragic into magic. And when I’m up, I’ve discovered I can stay up longer when I share the wealth with other people I think would value from it. So, in the spirit of me practicing enlightened self-interest and by wanting to extend s blessing that has recently fallen in my lap… Drumroll please… ASAP mark your calendars for: • This Wednesday, June 13th, 5 pm PST (8 pm EST), I’ll be hosting a zoom call with Waitaha elder Te […]

[VIDEO] You’ll want to pay attention to your dreams tonight, here’s why:

Happy Wesak!   No, that’s not a typo. Wesak is hailed to mark the highpoint of the spiritual year when- forces of enlightenment associated with the Buddha pour into the planet.   As a person into metaphysics and dreams, I can’t believe I didn’t know about this special day before. A new student (and master dreamer) of Dream-Life Coach Training, Luke Galutia “Betzalel Maggid“), recently shared about this with me, and how it’s known as a POWERFUL night for dreaming!   I for one can’t wait to see what dreams come through!   I’d LOVE to hear all about your dreams you wake up with tomorrow morning (or in the middle of the night).   For more info about Wesak, compliments of Betzalel: […]

Can you relate to Al Pacino in “The Godfather”? I can… [LIVE VIDEO]

Does it seem that your never-ending to-do list gets longer with every item you cross off? Do you think you’re not doing enough, creating enough…or that you simply are just not enough…so you keep doing more, only to find its never enough? Have you tried to resign as CEO of the universe only to find yourself like Al Pacino in The Godfather when he said, “Just when I thought I was out…they pulled me back in!” Yes, yes, yes, and yes…I relate to all of those things…but I’m doing something about it! Wanna join me? Remember, years ago when the Dalia Lama said, The world will be saved by western women ??? I don’t think he meant the kind of […]

What does The Ice Bucket Challenge, Run for the Cure & the Volcano Challenge have in common?

In the same vein as the Ice Bucket Challenge, or the Run for the Cure, my partners and I are about to embark upon the first annual Volcano Challenge. What do these three (seemingly) unrelated things have in common? Ok, imagine if I just came right out and said, “Hey guys, let’s raise money for breast cancer, Lou Gehrig’s disease, or impoverished orphans!” You might want to slap me, feel guilt-tripped, and at the very least would’ve already deleted this. These extreme events (people throwing buckets of ice over their heads, grown women in pink strutting their stuff all over kingdom come, and people running up and down volcanos-hopefully not being chased by lava) are created so that fundraising can become “Fun-raising.” Why […]

I love me a good “rags to riches” story-especially when feeling the most raggedy!

I have to admit I notice a resistance to getting back to life after a week spent honoring the passing of not one, but two beloved people in my world. It’s as if, on some level, I erroneously feel I’m betraying the memory of Teresa Swanson Sielck and Glenna D Walden by diving back into life. But, I imagine, if they were alive they would say that they’d want me (and those of us whose lives have been tossed around because of their loss) to get back to life…that being fully engaged in life, while we’re alive, is what would honor them. I can’t imagine either of these amazing ladies/angels wanting me or any of us to dive into a cave of deep depression and […]

Hungry for a Persephone Burger? Mmm Yum!

I don’t get mad that often…but when I do…it’s not cute. I was furious—bordering on out of control Tasmanian Devil from the Bugs Bunny cartoons kind of furious (on the inside)—right before Christmas. I’d fallen prey to a family dynamic that I swore I’d mastered and become immune to—but, as it turns out, I hadn’t and I wasn’t (yet). As I was tossing and turning, grumbling, and cussing like a sailor in the middle of the night, I (thank God) had the sense to get out of bed, grab my journal, and turn to the work of Byron Katie. If you’re not familiar with her “Work” then this next part may at first blush seem strange…but you’ll figure it out. […]
