Get The What, Then The How
I was part of a full house at the Heart Matters: Emotion & Conscious Parenting presentation by Gabor Mate and Gordon Neufeld last night held at the SFU downtown campus. It was a really stimulating evening and the two presenters seamlessly moved through great content in research and ideas. The fact that the two and a half hour presentation was sold out, tells you we are craving more information these days about how to bring up caring, compassionate and considerate children.
By the way, the photo symbolizes a culture that would not be needing … Read the rest Read More
ACT – Action, Commitment & Teamwork
Have you noticed that the things you don’t work hard at seem to come together absolutely naturally…and sometimes, even more meaningfully than the things you may have become a slave to? Sometimes the things you work really hard at just seem to get harder? Why is that?
I drove out to U.B.C. today to give an interview with Marie Benard, host of 101.9 FM Synchronicity Radio. I saw a few clients in my clinic in the morning, and headed out at 11 for her noon show. What a beautiful feeling there is in our … Read the rest Read More

And I’ve been mindful of the process of my unwinding on vacation … Read the rest Read More
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it” – Rumi
I asked my sister, the artist, “How do you get the light to play in your paintings so well?” She explained, she looks for where the colors are brightest. And she continued, light also plays where the colors are darkest. And I thought to myself that it is also true about personality shadow and vulnerability. The more we have ease in our own insecurities and learning curves, the more lightness of being we … Read the rest Read More
“When you trip over love, it is easy to get up. But when you fall in love, it is impossible to stand again”. – Albert Einstein
We were sipping cappuccino yesterday morning in Sayulita beach side, when a pair of Humpback whales (called “Jorobadas” by those who live here) showed up.
They were like 50 foot moving islands, massive.
Did you know that that whales mate for life? And as a species they breathe out when they dive into the deep. We humans breathe in when diving into the deep unknown waters of conflict. In fact probably as the … Read the rest Read More
