What is a Translucent Business?

Companies become translucent when they are influenced by translucent people. The influence may come from the CEO or top management, but it may just as easily come from an outside consultant, the shareholders, or the collective wisdom of the employees. It requires only a very few instrumental translucent people to begin to transform an entire […]



I was at a dinner last week with some very smart people. If we had just recorded the evening, it would have made an incredible book or movie. One of the things we got to talking about was what is it that leads to true fulfillment, to ultimate fulfillment, to a feeling that you’re living […]


Press Release: The New Age Goes into Retirement

People all over the world are reacting with shock, disbelief and also relief at last week’s announcement that the New Age has decided to go into retirement. “Was it something we did?” sobbed Rainbowchild Dewdrop Flower into her organic coconut milk chai, outside her tipi here in Nevada County, California. “Did we not chant fervently […]

Inherent Evolution

  As we deepen in translucence, we discover another dimension of our relationship to identity. It begins with the absolute acceptance of things as they are, of all our strange quirks and addictions and banana nabbing. Once we recognize everything to be fine as it is, we can relax even more deeply. We can feel, within […]


Living in the Green Zone

      There is a small group of people, from all over the world, who work together on delivering the Awakening Coaching training: both online and at live events.  Over the last months we have developed a code language that we share between us, which has greatly improved our flow of communication, reduced stress […]

Our Natural Vision

Vision is vital. It is the fuel that motivates action. It gives meaning to our lives, the aspiration to reach beyond our limits. Vision tells us where to put our energy, allows us to push through unforeseen obstacles, and, when a group of people work together, it is the cohesive force that keeps them motivated […]


Fred Goes to Costco

**** ***** My new book, “Better Than Sex,” will be out this summer.  Here is a sneak peak for you: Let me tell you a little story about a man named Fred. Fred goes shopping at Costco.  Just like everyone else, he shows his membership card, he gets himself a shopping cart, and begins to […]

Overcoming Fear of Success

Consider the sad and ominous story of JasonRussell. His name may have already flashed past you by now, in the whirlwind of current events. So let me remind you: Along with three of his buddies, Jason created the film Kony 2012, which attracted more than 80 million hits on Youtube a few weeks ago. I […]

Being of Service

About 40 years ago, I was at a boarding school in Canterbury, England. It is what is confusingly known in England as a “public school,” although in fact that actually means it’s a private school. The school was founded in the 13th century, and many of the old stone buildings have hardly been touched since […]


What’s up in 2012?

This is the last post I write in 2011, before we enter cautiously into the most hyped year in human history: two thousand and twelve. Rather like the latest Star Wars film, or Harry Potter book, the anticipation builds us up into such a state of frenzy that we may have no choice but to […]

The Miracles That Happen Beyond Time and Space

We’re four weeks into the current Awakening Coaching Training, and it’s been inspiring, gratifying, and deeply touching, to be sharing shifting consciousness with people from all over the world. Our participants this time come from Paraguay, Chile, Germany, Sweden, England, Canada, and all over the United States. Now here’s a wonderful little miracle that this […]


Did We Find God?

The top news story today is that scientists at CERN, the Swiss organization which oversees the $10-billion Large Hadron Collider beneath the Swiss-French border, may have final proof for the “God Particle,” which would mysteriously and magically explain everything else in the Universe. It’s not quite right to call these infinitesimally small building blocks of […]


What’s True for You?

This is the last week of the How to Thrive in the New Economy tele-seminar series. We’ve had a wonderful time talking to people like Genpo Roshi, Danielle Laporte, Jack Canfield, and Mark Gafni. If you missed some, or all, of the series, you can buy the entire collection for $25, and we give every […]


The One Thing

There is a secret. The greatest secret. The ultimate secret. It is a secret not because it’s in any way restricted, or withheld, or kept private. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. It’s more freely available to you than anything else. It is a secret rather like a modest looking little Italian restaurant tucked away […]

The perfect soil for revolution…

What have always been the perfect conditions for social revolution?  France in 1789, Russia in 1917?  Gaping inequality between the haves and the have nots.  Back in 2005 my book The Translucent Revolution has a chapter on Spiritual Activism. At that time, we did not know, when, where and how.  But we knew that an […]
