Children Are Natural Translucents

This is an excerpt from my book The Translucent Revolution.    Children are naturally translucent, freshly arrived from and in touch with an inner spaciousness. It is very easy to connect with your child in a translucent way if you are connected with yourself. Many parents talk openly with their children about moments of awakening […]

Explode with Anger

This is an excerpt from my book Leap Before You Look. When you feel angry, resentful,      When you feel that some injustice has been done to you, Stop and breathe deeply into the lower part of the belly. Feel the energy there. Feel the power. Fill your lower belly with breath, And let go […]

Intelligent Trust

At a time of uncertainty and great concern for the future, I have taken solace in the presence of one of my greatest teachers in life. Angel the cat, whose ashram we live in, will be 17 years old in February. Angel spends most of her time just being. She finds a sunny warm place […]

Translucent Aging

This is an excerpt from my book The Translucent Revolution.  We see the fruits of a translucent life nowhere more vividly than when people grow old. Here, the contrast between a life lived in servitude to the Iago trance, and one that has been transformed through awakening, becomes stark. Just as Iago habits catch up […]

No One Else Like You

This is an excerpt from my book Better than Sex. Take a moment and have a look at your right thumb. Now turn it over, so you can see the underneath. You can see lots of squiggly lines there. There are seven billion people on this planet, and none of them have the same thumb print […]

Why We Sabotage What We Most Long For

As a coach and a trainer of coaches, I am very lucky to work with extraordinarily talented, resourceful, brilliant people. I have helped people write movie scripts, write books, develop courses, bring new products to the market, found companies, and much more. Whenever I interview a new client for coaching (which usually lasts for about […]

Awakening and Enlightenment

This is an excerpt from my book, Better than Sex.  Many people may wonder: Does this process of Awakening Coaching lead to Enlightenment? Before we can answer this question, we have to have some reference for what this word “Enlightenment” means. It has been used quite freely in English in the last forty years or […]

Why Awakening

Most people who seek out the services of a coach do so because they want to overcome obstacles in their life, or because they want to realize some outcome. People come to a coach to complete a book, to found a company, to overcome procrastination, or to become a more present and caring parent or […]

Other Realization

This is an excerpt from my book Leap Before You Look.    Sit opposite someone close to you. This could be your intimate partner, or a friend. Each of you—look into your partner’s left eye. Look not just at your partner’s eye, but through the eye, Into that which is looking back at you. In this […]

Finding the “I”

This is an excerpt from my book Better than Sex.  Awakening is not about changing the content of your experience in any way at all, or even about trying to change your thoughts. Awakening means simply to recognize the Open Secret that is experiencing all of this. In this moment you are hearing sounds, correct? You […]

What Is Awakening?

This is an excerpt from my book Better than Sex.   Come down with me now to the basement. Watch your head on the beam there. A few friends are down here, watching a movie together. I know, it smells a little musty down here. It got flooded during a storm a few years back and […]

Let’s Dive in Together

  This is an excerpt from my book Better than Sex. In this moment, you can see squiggly hieroglyphics on a white page. Is that true? If you look up for a moment, I am sure you can see other things as well: shapes, colors, textures, and movement. If I look up from the desk […]

True North

I am working with a very small group of Awakening Coaches to support each of them to build a rock solid coaching practice. They are learning how to identify their ideal clients: the people to whom they have the most to offer. They are learning how to articulate their unique way of supporting people, and […]

Gratitude in a Creative Act

I have to tell you, I live a wonderful life. I am doing the most interesting job in the world (for me), I have a beautiful family, my kids are thriving, my health is good, and money flows on its own. I just spent a long period of being in the same place as my […]

An Integrated Approach

In an Awakening Coaching Training recently, a woman was reporting that when she had guided another student into “Radical Awakening,”  all his problems and issues has disappeared, and he had no interest or affinity to them any more. She was concerned if this was a real freedom, or just an avoidance of life. Facilitating awakening […]

When the Remedy Becomes the Poison

We recently started a new Client Interaction Course as part of the Awakening Coaching Training, with coaches-in-training from all over the world.  Each student in the course said something about why they are taking the course and what they hoped to gain from it. Sometimes I comment. Here is a dialog that took place last […]

Co-Creation-02

Co-creation

Carolyn Anderson and John Zwerver, the founders of a UN-affiliated organization called Global Family, call this model of people working together “co-creation.” Anderson is the co-author of The Co-Creators Handbook. She defines co-creation as “co-participating consciously with the laws or patterns of life itself, conscious alignment with the essence of others and with nature.” Anderson […]

I See You. I take a stand. I love you.

I was working with a woman as a coaching client recently, who is a professor in a very prestigious institution. She guides dozens of PHD students every year to select the perfect subject for their dissertation, that will be truly unique and innovative. She hired me as a coach because she wanted to serve her […]

Consider All Phenomena as a Dream

I train people to be Awakening Coaches. One of the most fundamental tools we use is called “Radical Awakening.” In just a few minutes, a coach is able to guide a client into direct recognition of their true nature as limitless, as unborn and undying, as essentially free. It is a powerful shift for anyone: […]

The Goddess on Wall Street

Amy Domini is not the only woman bringing feminine sanity to corporate America. In living memory, wealth was traditionally passed down through families to the firstborn son. Money stayed in the hands of men. At least in the Western world, this practice has become more or less completely obsolete. Because women live longer than men, […]
