How to Create Everything Out of Nothing

Living Radical Brilliance is not only a matter of getting coached, adopting practices and coming on retreats. It also requires a deep and fundamental shift of values. Radical Brilliance means that we allow things to rise out of stillness. At the top of the cycle, 12 o’clock, is that part of the cycle where we relax […]

Inspired

Just the other day, I heard the word “inspired” in a whole new way. One of my coaching clients, who has a big bold vision to change the world in a wonderful way, was telling me he had felt blocked in his flow and so started reading other people’s work for “inspiration.” The word “inspire” […]

The Brilliance of Living a Misfit Life

My Change of Direction

In a few weeks, my new book Radical Brilliance will be published here in the U.S., and a few months later, it will come out in Germany. The book and its message are a new departure for me; and so, I’m writing this to people who have been reading my words or studying with me […]

The Magic Switch

That moment in the Matrix when Morpheus offers Neo the red pill or the blue pill is probably one of the most quoted and referenced moments in modern film.  Why?  I’d say that it acts as a symbol, a reference point for an instinct we all have of that one thing: the one pivotal decision […]
