Writing to Awaken with Dr. Maria Sirois at Kripalu

I’m looking forward to my upcoming weekend workshop with Dr. Maria Sirois, Writing to Awaken: Explore Longing and Belonging at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health from May 18-20, 2018. We’ll be exploring the riddles of human connection, the gifts of relationship and solitude, togetherness and union. If you’ve ever wondered why love can be so confusing, or how to balance coupledom with self-reliance. I hope you will be able to join us!

Writing as a Spiritual Practice Online Class

I hope you can join me for my nest six-week online class, Writing as a Spiritual Practice starting on June 18, 2018. This course introduces students to the power of writing as a path of spiritual awareness and self-realization. Until we question our beliefs, we cannot know who we are; until we examine who we are, as Socrates reminded us, life is not worth living. You will learn to use your intuitive voice as a doorway to self-knowledge and enlightened awareness, opening doors to creativity, deepened relationships (to oneself and others), and greater clarity on the path of everyday life.

Omega Blue Spirit Retreat in Costa Rica

Blue Spirit ThumbnailWhat a great time I’ve been having as always at Omega Blue Spirit. Stephan Rechtschaffen has created a real life paradise for reflection and renewal, self-exploration, spiritual practice, and being in this superb tropic setting. Howler monkeys, baby turtles hatching on the beach, chartreuse colored birds in the trees. And teaching with old friends and admired colleagues, Roshi Joan Halifax, Joan Borysenko, Elena Brower — big souls all. I look forward to teaching this retreat every year. Next week, Australia. Peace.
