There seems to be a ready assumption in our culture that feeling unwell requires ‘medication’. In my view, we’d do ourselves – and the planet – a huge service to understand the simplicity of what ‘dis-ease’ is, and what we can do ourselves – simply and effectively – to shift it into ‘feeling groovy’*. How do you know when you’re experiencing Continue Reading

Savasana – The Deepest Rest Around!
In “Exhaustion – or Relaxation?” we explored the distinction between these two vastly different – yet on the surface apparently similar – states. Here’s an easy, step-by-step guide to experiencing the phenomenal benefits of Savasana yourself. It’s safe, costs nothing, and takes only a few minutes to ‘plug in and get recharged’. Enjoy!

Trance – The Inherent Wealth of ‘Altered States of Consciousness’
I’ve recently had opportunity to be in the presence of Daniel Pinchbeck (bestselling author of 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl), Flordomayo (one of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers), John Kimmey (a carrier of the Hopi Prophecy), José Arguelles (initiator of the Harmonic Convergence and the 13 Moon Calendar), Richard Tarnas (besteselling author of The Passion of the Western Mind), and John Perkins and Llyn Roberts (DreamChange.org). I can Continue Reading
What is leadership? Who are our leaders? Where are they? These are three of the most important questions we can ask ourselves today. I was a young child when I first realized that our leaders may not be who and where we assume them to be. I was watching a televised program of the Canadian House of Commons. The behavior of our supposed leaders as they harassed and bullied Continue Reading

Many people evidently are not yet able to self-recognize when they are in trance. As with many highly beneficial aspects of our species’ innate wisdom, I wish that this were readily available to us in kindergarten and pre-kindergarten teaching. It is my sense that increasing numbers of people are experiencing trance – some frequently – and yet few have the tools to recognize, let alone understand, what is happening. Here are some Continue Reading
What Makes A Leader A Leader?
Firstly, I'd like to qualify that just because someone promotes a popular opinion and has many followers, this doesn't intrinsically make them a Leader in the essential definition I am about to present. Many people 'lead' through might, brutality and peer pressure. These manipulative tactics can be physical, emotional and / or mental. Threatening to deprive someone of something essential is often enough to have them submit to coercion. This Continue Reading
What Is Trance?
Trance is like being tuned in to radio station(s) beyond the frequency listened to and registered by typical states of mind. Trance is a state which allows attunement to information beyond the typical frequencies / information bands of day-to-day human functioning. As such, it is highly generative, highly creative, and highly transformative. A friend / colleague of mine refers to her trance experiences as “dancing Continue Reading
