There is a Secret One inside

The Secret One inside only remains a secret because of us, because of you, because of me. And because of our ancestors, and how they lived. The lost and hidden parts of us are never completely submerged–they sprout signs of their existence for anyone who cares to really listen. Sometimes the signs are symptoms: weariness, illness, longing, ennui. The signals can be difficult to decipher, unless I am alert, like an animal tracker, sniffing the wind. A systemic constellation facilitator,...

The Demon Dialogues

Nearly two years ago I embarked on a project which would turn out to be one of the biggest adventures of my life. It was not an outer adventure. The mountains I was scaling, the deserts I got stranded in, the rivers I nearly drowned in, were all part of my inner terrain. I was on a wild adventure I had postponed for a very long time: learning how to love. It all began with needing. Through the inner work and the training I was doing, I realized that I needed more contact, more presence and more...

The Tire Iron and the Tamale

Many wisdom teachings speak about how our natural compassion can be awakened when we ‘moisten the heart ‘ with our tears. The Dalai Lama has been seen at times, crying deeply in front of large crowds of people. I have often wished that I could share my feelings as freely as he does.

It dissolves our sense of separation and...

A Fire In The Belly

Right now, in our wild, crazy, and busy world, there have never been so many sources of good information. You can go online, any hour of the day or night, and read highly intelligent texts, and very beautiful poetry. You can hear awake and evolved beings offer sacred teachings, listen to state of the art psychology, or brilliant and potent coaching. Here is one of my favourite examples, from Sogyal Rinpoche, ‘Rest in Natural Great Peace.’ And it’s all free, running like water...

You Are Surrounded

“We cannot save things. Things pass away. We can only attend to relationships, to the relationships between things. Conversations are efforts toward good relations. They are an elementary form of reciprocity. They are the exercise of our love for each other. They are the enemies of our loneliness, our doubt, our anxiety, our tendencies to abdicate.” ~Barry Lopez I remember the cowboy movies I used to watch as a child, which often reached a defining moment in which a man heard the words:...
