I’m very excited about this new online course. During these seven weeks, we’ll be exploring these so-called deadly sins (lust, greed, pride, gluttony, wrath, sloth, and envy)as doorways to self-understanding and healing shame. When we redefine what it means to be good, we free ourselves from the idea of sin and forgive ourselves for our natural impulses. This enables us to live more wisely, with greater passion and vitality. Starts September 10, 2018. More info & registration.
I very much enjoyed doing this interview with Devaa Haley Mitchell for the #MeToo Dialogues with The Shift Network. We talked about what it feels like to be a fatherless boy in a house full of women, how to embody true masculinity in a world of machismo and perpetrators, and why violence against women is a men’s problem, first.

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!

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.

It was such a pleasure speaking to the British filmmaker, Magda Pniewska, for her inspirational new video series, How Do You Live? Magda asked me to talk about personal adversity, and how it is that life’s greatest challenges sometimes wake us up to our true potential. We discussed the power of gratitude and the virtues of surrender in the face of the unknown. Here is a link to our interview. I hope you enjoy it.
