Does Meditation Still Matter?

A few years ago, I adopted a small library of spiritual books from a friend of mine. When I asked him why he was getting rid of all these amazing tomes he told me that he didn’t feel that meditation and spiritual practice was relevant given...

Patience is Action

Patience does not come easy to me. I’m a sales professional for a consulting firm and avid marathoner: two worlds where success is equated to time and every number counts. A million dollars loses its value if it’s earned over two years instead of one; 26.2...

Accessing Unlimited Possibility

Possibility is a powerful word. Whenever we say something is possible it means it can happen. It is real. Reality is defined by what is possible and what is not possible. Changing our reality means changing what is possible. Our sense of self is created out of...

Helping Heal The World

I’ve had many clients come in my office and in speak on how the current political and social climate is affecting them either directly or indirectly. Regardless of their individual beliefs, the seemingly endless and omnipresent conflict is wearing them down. Many clients want to retreat...

How Stable Is Your Confidence? Exploring Running, Money, and Stillness

I’ve been meditating daily for about 18 years. I’ve been selling professionally for almost 16 years (I was previously a social worker). I’ve been running as a spiritual practice for 15 years. Typically, these three areas act as a virtuous circle in my life; my activity in one area will energize and...

With Meditation We Can Remain Steady Through Any Storm

When we meditate it is good to remain as still as we possibly can and here’s why. Our physical stillness in meditation is a metaphor for not moving inwardly. In deep meditation we discover an inner stillness that is not an act of being still as much as it is...
