It was great to talk to Duncan CJ for his video interview series SpiritPig. When he first approached me, the name threw me off, then I saw his roster of past interviews and realized the guy is the real deal. Intelligent questions and a good conversation. Spirit Pig is a mission, an all round, totally encompassing expedition to ‘get life right’. Spirit Pig features free, uncensored, raw interviews with the greatest living minds alive. Leaders sharing advice on on a vast array of topics that will inspire, stimulate and motivate. Watch the video.
I recently had the pleasure of talking to Mark Nepo for The Seekers Forum about his new book “Inside the Miracle: Enduring Suffering, Approaching Wholeness.” Mark Nepo is a poet and philosopher who has taught in the fields of poetry and philosophy for over forty years. His many published works include “The Book of Awakening,” a number one New York Times Best Seller. He devotes his writing and teaching to the process of inner transformation and the life of relationship. I spoke to him about gratitude, faith and the acceptance on the path of awakening. I hope you enjoy our conversation.
I’m delighted to be teaching Writing To Awaken: Memoir as a Path of Transformation a the Rowe Center from April 1 – 3. Tucked away in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, this renowned historic center offers the charm only found in New England. The magnificence of Spring will be our backdrop as we investigate the connection between the person you believe yourself to be and the internal witness who sees beyond the conscious mind. I hope you can join me. More info and registration.
Please join me for Journey To the Sacred, my upcoming six-week online class. What do you hold sacred? Your responses to the lessons in this popular online class will reveal more than you may realize about how you experience life, what you expect from yourself and others, where you are wounded and in need of healing, and how deeply – or haltingly – you are able to love. This eye-opening class will inspire you spiritually, broaden you psychologically, and empower you emotionally. Journey To the Sacred will initiate you into a new understanding of what enlightenment means and how to bring sacred awareness into your life.

Now I understand why people have been telling me — for as long as I can remember — how wonderful Costa Rica is! I’m here teaching “Writing To Awaken” at Omega Blue Spirit, on the Nicoya Peninsula, and seeing that this country is even more amazing than I knew. The only sovereign nation in the Western hemisphere without a standing army, Costa Rica rates in the top tier for quality of life, education, ecological sustainability, and richness of flora and fauna worldwide. Blue Spirit, founded seven years ago by Dr. Stephan Rechtschaffen, is a place of restoration, renewal, and learning in the heart of this gorgeous land. I’m so glad to be here and the workshop is going beautifully.
