On 31 October 2002, the UN Security Council adopted unanimously Resolution 1325 urging “Member States to ensure increased representation… Continue

Those who observe world events may perceive something higher than human logic at work
Dag Hammarshjold has written that the United Nations was “the beginning of an organic process through which the diversity of peoples and their governments are struggling to find common ground upon which they can live together in the one world which has been thrust upon us before we were ready.”
I recently wrote about the way our tenacious holding onto a belief or story about ourselves determines how we create our reality. My perspective on this was coming from my observations as a therapist and a coach, and I was delighted to come upon some additional insight in Temple Grandin's book, Animals in Translation. She wrote, "Normal people have an interpreter in their left brain that takes all the random, contradictory details of whatever they are doing or remembering at the moment… Continue

You are here to experience your own personal truth. Sometimes to find that truth, you need to let go of various situations, relationships, or objects. This creates an energetic space that makes room for new things to enter your life. Most of us do not relish change but instead prefer what is familiar and safe. The lesson here is that an outer shift only becomes possible once we take an inner leap of faith and move forward despite our fears. What we come to find out is that our inner truth is… Continue

This, coupled with advanced yet simple methods of self-regulation from the Tibetan tradition, creates a… Continue
Take time today to get quiet and observe your breath. Breathe slowly and deeply. The breath is the doorway to stilling the mind. Let go of all desires and let go of all thoughts. In the silence you will find the grace that you are looking for
Today’s world of increasing complexity and rapid globalization leaves us thirsting for new metaphors, analogies and emblems – those that can encapsulate the complex challenges we face into an image of clarity we can wrap our minds around. As the stakes of our collective behavior rise, this new image must both shock our sensibilities and inspire us into action. Such a fresh, contemporary archetype must quickly scale visibly into the heart of mass consciousness to encourage humans to become the… Continue

Take Your Power Back Warriors!
Humanity is at the most important time in the history of the planet. We are in the middle of the greatest paradigm shift the world has ever known, where we have a choice - to keep fear, limitation, suffering as our way of life or to choose a much higher philosophy - that of love, compassion, open-mindness and exploration. We can create miracles when we come together.
Grassroots action and inner love will allow a global…Continue
