Interbeing with All Life

When I discussed interbeing with all life with Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson several years ago, he said, I would say in modern times, (I need to define modern as in the last century).  What you said recent times was 25 years.  In modern times, we have come to learn about ecology.  I’ll use a single […]

Mindfulness Breaks™ in Your Home

In my last article, I introduced the concept of a Mindfulness Break™. Now I want to tell you about Mindfulness Breaks in your home or workplace. A Mindfulness Break in your home or workplace is guided meditation experience in which I train you to be mindful in such a way that you can do it […]

Can We Learn to Laugh at Ourselves?

Can we learn to laugh at ourselves for the situation we’ve created in the United States now with money being more important than people, nature or life on earth? Can we learn to laugh at ourselves for destroying the only planet that we know of that can support life as we know it? Isn’t it […]

Letting Go

One of the main principles of Mindfulness in Healing is to offer people what you can in the way of healing and letting go of any expectations for their results. When I teach mindfulness breaks in people’s homes or in my space, I do my best to encourage them to have a daily practice and […]

The Land of the Free…

Americans pride ourselves as living in “The land of the free and the home of the brave.” But are we really free? Many of us are slaves to our jobs and can’t really make end meet. Others are slaves to alcohol, drugs and food. But we all want peace and security. Meanwhile, the rich are […]

The insight of interbeing tells us to include all things. This inclusiveness pertains to people, animals, plants and minerals all the way down to the smallest atom (hydrogen) and all the up beyond the visible universe. But this is not a new idea as many think. For example, in my interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson […]

What is a Hero?

What is a hero? Do you really know? Is it someone strong and vibrant who goes off and slays your enemies and upholds your friends? Or is it a football quarterback who wins the Super Bows in the last second with his “hail Mary” throw? Christoper McDougall doesn’t think it is any of these.   […]

Attaining Enlightenment

Attaining enlightenment seems to be what we are all looking for when we diligently practice mindful meditation every day. I know, from personal experience, that this can be a very difficult task.
