The Value of Discomfort – Part I
I’ve been thinking about a question I get asked a lot in this work. Usually, it’s a version of this:
“If I’m getting better, why do I feel so uncomfortable at times?”
All too often, we connect our thoughts about healing – or other reprogramming we’re working on, like abu...
Inspire: Breathing Life Into Life
When I first released my Morning/Evening Meditations more than two years ago, I couldn’t have anticipated the tremendous response from our community members. It’s still one of our most popular offerings of all time.
I think these meditations resonate with so many because they offer a kind of “reset” each day. We have an opportunity to begin every morning with clear intentions …

For the past few weeks, we’ve been examining the idea of investing in the unknown. In Part I, I discussed the evolution of my own experience with the work.
In Part II, I addressed the question so many community members ask me about the delicate balance between intention and surrender – and the tension between the two.

Choice Points on the Path – Part II
In my last post, I reflected on recent conversations with members of our community – and the insights, challenges, breakthroughs, and questions we all encounter at various stages of our study and practice.
If you missed Part I, where I talked about the stages of Novice (“I choose someth...
Choice Points on the Path — Part I
My team and I recently returned from a long stretch of travel; leading retreats from Switzerland … to England … to Florida and New York over a period of 40 days. I try to make time to meet with members of our community during each event, and I’m always struck by the insights, challenges, break...
Romancing the Future
I’m overjoyed and so moved by the response to my latest meditation, “Love the Life You Love.” Since we first shared it with our community a little more than a month ago, it’s become one of our most popular meditations of all time. And I want to tell you mor...
