  •  This published article is taken from my chapter in Bumps in Motion… I became fascinated with the idea of mandala after it became fascinated with me. It wasn’t until I was already well into the process of the creation of  my first mandala in the spring of 1995 or what I was calling my “map of consciousness” or my “picture of the soul” that I even recognized what […]

    We all hope that we spend our time doing work that inspires us and that we feel deeply connected to.  But we  can sometimes fall into routine, and lose the energized feeling that comes with embracing our work.  When that happens, how can we reclaim that connection, and find deeper meaning in the work that we do each day?  This week we will […]

    The last time you intended to clean out a closet, get back in the gym, or reach out to an old friend but did not get it done, what was the reason you told yourself about why this wasn’t the right time to do it?  Often we find that we use or even create big and small distractions that keep us from doing […]

    In our exploration of “The Stories We Tell Ourselves”, we have heard our guests emphasize that often we can make a situation more complicated or dramatic through our stories. As we wrap up our discussions on this topic, we turn to frequent guest Markus Kasunich to look closer at why we have a tendency to “feed” these stories that we know are either […]

      We often tell the inspiring stories of our guests, their ability to find new and better ways to do things, and to overcome challenges in their lives.  This week we turn the tables on the idea of stories, and we look closer at the stories we tell ourselves.  These stories are often our own creation, not based in real facts, and are […]

    When asked, I have heard many people in our modern culture often describe themselves as being “spiritual.” What does that actually mean? In many cases, this expression has been adapted into a pop-culture trend which now simply refers to a “spiritual person” as being something other than a “religious person.”  The same phrase is also often used to classify a compartmentalized “spiritual” activity, behavior, […]

    We wrap up our discussion about what the various people, places, and things in our life can teach us with a look at what we can learn from Nature.  Mother Nature has its own rhythms that can guide us if we tune in and allow it.  What does it take for us to see, feel and hear the cues and clues that are […]

      The ultimate journey is the journey that life takes us on….the ups and downs, the highs and the lows.  What if we lived each day with the intention to embrace everything that happens to us as a lesson and gift on the journey?  How would it change the choices you make, or the way you view the experiences that happen along the […]

  • You are encouraged to believe in the seeming necessity of being busy in order to get ahead in today’s fast-paced world. Many proclaim “there is not enough time in the day to get everything done…” Increasingly absurd demands for the sake of efficiency are all being squeezed into already unmanageable schedules. It is becoming apparent that one of the most valuable commodities of the […]

    This week is the first in a series of shows focusing on the pervasive addiction to “busy-ness” that so many of us experience.  Between our work, parenting, volunteer and personal obligations, the pace of life can be fast and chaotic.  How can we make sure that we are doing our best to be aware of our relationship to our busy schedule, and how can […]

    In the buzz of a vast information network that bombards the human consciousness with a combination of tantalizing mind-candy and instant sense gratification, we are being pressured to adapt by developing shorter attention spans.  Like a pebble skipping across the surface of the water, we are being influenced to think, move and react to one other in this immediate access society with quick blips […]

    Everything is as it is.  All of our personal pain in any of our temporary circumstances is a result of being in resistance and choosing to be in judgment to what is: Wishing it were something other; desiring it to be something more; manipulating it to be something else; condemning it for not being what we want it to be, and then making decisions, […]
