Date Yourself*

Date Yourself*

 It’s your Labor Day Weekend, too, so I’ll keep this short. This long weekend, can you make a date? with yourself? To get some guidance for your New Year, too? That’s what I’ll be doing. Think of it as a shamanic teaparty. First, create a space for yourself, alone, just you and your intuition. Or […]

Surrendering to Blacknuss: Post #10 in Our Series, ‘Working “Racially,” Claiming Grandeur’

Surrendering to Blacknuss: Post #10 in Our Series, ‘Working “Racially,” Claiming Grandeur’

Not only does this RAISING CLARITY stuff work, it changes us: our inner work does us as we do the work. (That’s the thrust of RAISING CLARITY’s coaching. We also coach ourselves!) If you’re an alert blog reader, you noticed how often I blogged on Ferguson last week. (Both times.) You might even have noticed that neither post was visually tagged as part […]

Working While Grieving, Guilty, and Angry

Working While Grieving, Guilty, and Angry

Maybe like soul-colleague April R. Silver you are having a hard time working while thinking about Michael Brown’s murder and what is going on in Ferguson. April created a hashtag, #‎WorkingWhileOutraged‬ which inspires this post. You can find it here. I so appreciate the wholeness of April’s approach, her clarity amid pain. This is the […]

When Do We Start to Feel Safer?: Police Violence Against African-American Youth and Me

When Do We Start to Feel Safer?: Police Violence Against African-American Youth and Me

I wanted to believe the article on Michael Brown’s killing by police would have made it above the fold of the front page of USAToday if it had not been reported the morning after Robin Williams tragically, sorrowfully, killed himself. But the media shares by whites, and the media shares by Blacks, have been so […]

I Am Younger Than I’ve Ever Been

I Am Younger Than I’ve Ever Been

This RAISING CLARITY stuff works. I noticed this week a new harvest: I am younger, kinder, and smarter than I have ever been. Also more flexible and with much sharper memory. So there, stereotypes of aging! Chalk one up for becoming who you wanted to be whenever you realized you did! Happy Summer’s Close! (Or […]

The Connection Between Mindfulness and Love

The Connection Between Mindfulness and Love

I realized I am expecting you just to get the connection I see between mindfulness and love. Maybe this short gatha will help, below. (A gatha is used in Buddhism in a slightly similar way to a mantra in Vedic practice, to help center the mind in a particular place) The thought manifests as the […]

Affirming A Language of Love: Telecourse on Aligning Words and Life

  The language of love today is extremely solitary. It may be spoken by thousands (who knows?), but is defended by no one. It is completely abandoned by the languages around it, or ignored, or deprecated, or mocked by them, cut off not only from power, but also from the mechanisms of power–the sciences, knowledge, […]

Giving Birth to Your Self

Giving Birth to Your Self

I have been giving birth to myself. In the past ten days, I have given two workshops right at my scariest edges. (See numbers two and three of my four gratitudes.)* Out in the world, I gave much more of myself than I ever have in public fora. I was amazed at how much of […]

Align Your Words, Align Your Life Telecourse

So dudes, I’m teaching again with Dana. Why? The topic is crucially important: we give you the space to uncover why you make the choices you make in communication, and help you create a path that will align how you communicate now and how you want to communicate in the future. Dana is loving. And […]

More Reading Beyond Whiteness: Post #10 in Our Series, ‘Working “Racially,” Claiming Grandeur’

I promised a follow-up post about my white authors’ reading “fast.” As you know from reading that last post, I’ve given myself a year to read authors who aren’t white. All kinds of authors, any kinds of books, but not by white people. This feels radical to me. It also feels hilarious that it feels […]
