Who Should You Listen To

You probably get regular invitations to online summits where dozens of enthusiastic advice-givers are vying for your attention, alluring you with downloadable gifts and free offers. The internet is exploding with new blog posts every day about the 5 Most Important […]

About Qualia

A few months ago, my friend Jonathan Robinson introduced me to Qualia,  a new nutritional supplement produced by the Neurohacker Collective. It comes through the mail in two bottles, with jet black labels printed with gold ink. You take Step 1 on rising. I usually wash it down with a glass of lemon water with […]

The Two Most Important Moments of My Life

Back in 1991, there were two moments, separated from each other by just a few days, that changed my life forever. First, a little background. In 1991 I was living in India. I had already been pretty deeply involved in “spiritually seeking” for about twenty years.  The giddy pursuit of “enlightenment” had by that point […]

How to Discover Your Unique Gift

This is an excerpt from my book Better Than Sex.  The best way to discover your unique gift is to ask the people who have known you for a long time. Ask your parents, your siblings, your childhood friends. You can ask your spouse or partner, your children. These are the people who have come […]

Eat the Wild Strawberry

I just got back from a wonderful visit to the island of Corfu in Greece. A group of us met for a Radical Brilliance one-week intensive, which was spectacular. Prior to leaving for Greece, I had spent almost two months recovering from a serious car accident, so I had been forced to lie low and […]

Meeting the Beloved

I love you. I need you. I want you. I cannot live without you. All of us at some point in our lives have said or thought words like these. At the time they seem very real, as though this new person is the magical missing ingredient to make us whole. In fact, how did […]

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 […]

Dropping the Blame Game

A few days ago, I was driving from an appointment in Olympia, Washington, to the airport in Seattle to fly home. It was around 5 o’clock in the evening, but the traffic was surprisingly moving forward fluidly. Just after I passed the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, I was on an open stretch of freeway. The […]

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 […]

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 […]

Reboot out of the Timeless

Q: Why in Radical Releasing do we stick to the words and the feelings, and not invite in pictures and the story? A: It is a very simple thing to understand. Understanding why we operate in this way is not only going to answer your question, it also gives you an insight into how life […]

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 […]

seeing deeply

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 […]

Coaching is all a Front for Love

My children both went to a Waldorf school. Rudolf Steiner founded the original school for the employees of the Waldorf cigarette factory in Stuttgart. He used to ask the teachers, “Have you loved your children today?” He told teachers that part of their job, before they went to sleep, was to visualize each child in […]

Why Do We Avoid our Greatness?

I’ve written eight books so far, and I just came out with the latest one, Better Than Sex. The books that I’ve written previously were a little more erudite, many had footnotes, a long bibliography, and careful references. About a year ago I realized “Hey, I’m in my 50’s, sooner or later I’ve just got […]

Can You Change the World?

A few months ago, I wrote a little satirical piece offering Barack Obama coaching sessions. I assume most of you realized that I did not actually think he would read the post, let alone accept the coaching. It was humor.  But it did generate an interesting response from one of my readers which reads as […]

Why are we Obsessed with Celebrities?

The team of people who work at Awakening Coaching get together regularly on Google Hangout to catch up on things. “How was your weekend?” “What are the upcoming courses we are offering?” “How is the new book?” But we also like to talk about the state of the world. We were chatting together about what […]
