A Covid Corona Moment

A pandemic can flip many of our self assumptions. Each moment now in each day we spend it this medical health crisis we may call " A Covid Moment," the moment a painful or longlasting change looks us in the face. "Pan" for "all" means all our usual expectations can be turned around by an unwelcome guest in our environment. A lifestyle may be examined for its qualities. It is possible to look at one's own life circle and the elements Read more [...]

Mindfulness in a Coach

My profile as a counselor and coach is Professional, not a well meaning work by newcomers and amateurs of limited training, experience or education. My life path includes decades of education, training, experience - clinical and conventional, alternative and corporate. It is holistic, integrative. I advocate and practice an Integral life style. My path of change included my long transition into and out of the Episcopal church from 1979 to 2009. Read more [...]

My Niche Evolves

It came to me clearly very recently that my work niche is narrowing.  My work evolves because I evolve.  It has, so I do.. Hah!   I'm grateful because I have struggled with this issue in the past, my work "niche." My gift more and more is working with our human higher states of consciousness, our meditation mind.

While I can work with almost any issue and any kind of client, I have grown to realize my work works best for my client's benefit Read more [...]

The More I Practice….

... the more I learn from my clients, and hence help my clients to creatively grow, each in their unique style and way.

Some clients are more entrenched than others in the Beliefs through which they see and interpret the world daily.  These "worldviews" almost invariably come from childhood, sometimes from the very earliest stages of growth.  Memories of happiness and joy can be discovered along side those of regret, anger, fear and sadness.  Read more [...]

This Work Ain’t Easy.

I use the colloquial "ain't" for "is not"  here as a way of saying that personal or professional growth work is not easy because it is intimate.   And it is intimate because it involves an intimacy with yourself that you may not have experienced before.  It is a process of inner work that requires reflection with a purpose, a looking within yourself for the deeper questions that are now calling out for your deeper answers.  That can be very Read more [...]

Why It’s Called “Practice.’

In my work and in my personal life, more and more I see life itself as a 'Practice.' Just like the term is used by physicians, life in every day is a matter of choices based on what we know channeled in the decisions and choices we make each hour.  A teacher taught me recently too much of our past experience and its conditioning our brain causes hardwired patterns of feelings and thoughts.   So I  make my choices in a kind of automation more Read more [...]

Restating my Tao

"In merely the lifetime of the Baby Boomers an unparalleled era of global evolution has begun, an entire new epoch or stage of human development.  It is the dynamic evolutionary and historic process of stepping forward into humanity's next tier of growth into diversity, complexity, and pluralism. This species-wide integral stage defines the leading edge of human evolution even while 21st century techno-cyber reality swirls around the age-old existential Read more [...]

What do I share with Trump?

New book I just read, "Trump and a Post-Truth World," by Ken Wilber. Integral insight.

 

Wilber: it's in a developmental stage of "Boomeritis" that DJT expresses his generation, the 'Me Generation' narcissism merged with a virulent 'don't tell me what to do' insistence on autonomy. Mr. Drumpf IS the worst example and best symbol of Boomer all-demanding ego(ism) "infected" with an extremely childish selfishness. But we {all or most} still Read more [...]

Shooting? What shooting?

@ the occasion of the 11/6/2017 Texas church massacre....

 

Shooting? What shooting?

My perspective on this is through the two main and conflicted views of this deadly event in our homeland in the era of UnTruth.  We are forced to look at the life of a lost soul, a man abandoned unto himself who acted out his desperation.  While we collectively are forced to ask, what's wrong with our society, our legislators, our country's soul?

And Read more [...]

New “Religion”? A “How to….”

This is a FB message I posted to a Integral friend who wants to see his religion change in line with the maxims of Integral Theory by Ken Wilber.  Wilber's Jan 2017 book "The Religion of Tomorrow" holds the full explanation of what is religion's challenge to become 21st century, or "post-modern," in spiritual terms, FYI.

"My theology to recommend is accessible only through a meditation practice faithfully engaged. Very loosely I'd Read more [...]
