Say “Hi” to your Dragon?”

Walt Disney was a person in touch with his "Inner Child," that psychological concept made popular back in the 80's. Disney Corp to this day keeps churning out movies made of myth and magic that still draw millions of kids and families to the cinema. The hidden messages of most of these films turn on the part of our psyches that are strongly attuned to this level of our minds.  Little kids love stories of fantasy and magic in their story books.  Read more [...]

Birthdays.

Mine is today.  The number doesn't matter. A friend reminded me yesterday I might treat my "arrival anniversary" as a New Years Day - a day to reflect and make plans, goals, resolutions for the year to come. So I resolve to nurture and love my Inner Child with greater care and understanding of His fears and pains out of which He too often projects frustration and anger to be heard over the raucousnes or slings and arrows that have befallen Him Read more [...]

“Blades of Glory” : a tale of transformation

"Blades of Glory" is a funny/gross Jungian cartoon in a disturbing but evocative movie.  It is upsetting and  revealing in a good way. A close frined recommneded this movie.  It is the weirdest combination of the ridiculous and the sublime you'll ever see, due mostly to Will Farrell's clown act versus the statements he makes in the flic.  Here's what I saw. Two alter male egos in 'mortal conflict' with each other reconcile by finding a common Read more [...]

Medical Marijuana Shift Means More…

Bottom line: a change in one's state of mind can leads to a new stage of personal growth.  This is what the shift to acceptance of alternative medicinal approaches in the USA means in the bigger picture.  Shifts like this ultimately are personal and usually come through support by others. The federal approval of the clinical medicinal use of cannabinoid is meaningful.  In this news is a deeper wider issue, beyond the huge revenues in this new Read more [...]

Good Coaching is…..

Many of our family and cultural and religious conventions are based on three bases of human psychological dynamics that Read more [...]

A Worldview Coaching Perspective

AN IMPORTANT EXAMPLE OF EVOLUTIONARY PROGRESS  Blog Posts in a series. Today, 21t century morality has it that one may choose to be all heterosexual or all gay, or Bisexual, and a variety of expressions between the two defining polarities  in the black-and-white stereotypes of the two genders.  It is accepted now that gender alone, Nature, does not define you or me; nor does our Nurture alone.   Other 'energies' in us point out that the Read more [...]

men and women

As I see it, Feminism is the attempt to redress the inadequacies or outmoded ways of men and women seeing each other and acting their 'stereo'-roles with or 'at' each other.  All this is changing, and continues to shift, in in our lifetimes. No wonder the genders are confused in their roles and understanding of each other, not least in the bedroom.  In contrast Patriarchy is Masculine energy  inflated, exaggerated, gross and resistant to change.

Your Questions? Befriend Them!

I coach based on these bases of human psychological dynamics that are called Nature/Nurture/Choice, "N/N/C" for short. "N is for "Nurture."​  It is the personal soul and social family system conditioning of your brain/body software consciousness by your primary care-givers to about age ten.  Nurture creates embedded self-image, beliefs, language of origin, values, pathologies, and stereotypes. "N" is also for "Nature."  It is the as-yet-not-completely Read more [...]

On Feminism

Someone asked me recently how, as a man, I saw myself as a Feminist. In partial answer to this Big Question of our generation, I wrote to them, saying....   "Hey.   I am committed to Feminism, deeply.   I am thankful to meet someone who can ask how I feel and think about my Feminist outlook.  Thank you!  My professional background and personal predilections can be of help if they add whatever wisdom I have to others in my path.  You Read more [...]
