Our beautiful event at Bookworks

On June 27 I was warmly welcomed by staff members and numerous patrons as I gave a talk at the independent Bookworks store in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was lovely evening — so many people shared and we sold all the copies of How Do You Pray? they had! It was a true communion of souls beyond religion and beliefs. I express my gratitude to Bookworks for providing the venue for the heart-to-heart sharing we...

Building your inner temple

I’m thrilled to now be a regular writer at the online journal NY Spirit. My latest original post there is titled “Building the Inner Temple: Awareness of the Present Moment brings the divine into your daily life.” Come read and let me know what you think! An excerpt: “Whether it’s for minutes or hours, be unbusy with Spirit. Enter into a non-linear timing, that of spaciousness and presence. Within this awareness, we can’t multi-task the present moment. Sacred awareness expands into our activities and they grow with presence. This awareness is prayerness and the connection we long for… Many of us grew up going to church, temple, mosque, or synagogue and may have become disenchanted with the institutions. Now we pray in every cell of our bodies. We cultivate our inner terrain as our sacred...

Come read my new article series at Thrive Global!

I’m honored to have been accepted as a regular writer for the online journal of Thrive Global. You can see all my contributions at my writer page there. I invite you to join the conversation on my latest article, “G.O.D.: What does that mean to you?” “…As I pondered the word [God], I was flooded with an image and the phrase Grid Of Divinity — with the acronym G.O.D. As I shared this image of the Grid of Divinity with a friend I was fascinated to hear that she too had an acronym experience of God: Grace Opening Depths. Another friend shared hers: Great Open Door. Another was Generate, Organize, Do. A conversation began and there’s no end to it. Good Old Dude really touched my heart and my sense of fun. We can keep this sweet game going — please share acronyms or inspirations in the...

Interview about HDYP? at current NYSpirit.com

A lovely interview with me about How Do You Pray? along with several short excerpts from the book appears in the current online issue of NYSpirit. Here’s a fun excerpt from the interview, my response to the question, “How would you summarize your experience?” How Do You Pray? is a vision, a book and an evolutionary driver. It merges our human primal instincts with our higher-level intuition and awareness. As we sit with this inquiry we develop a depth of experience and possibility. As we get in touch with ourselves, we realize the veils are thin between each other. As we accept our own condition we can better accept that of others. We realize we are not alone, but part of a community – unity in diversity and diversity in unity. We can live together in peace with respect for our differences. We are inspired by our ancient wisdom as we move together into the future. We are the bridge, one with instinct and intuition, grace and gratitude, heaven and...

Pray here now

How Do You Pray? is more relevant than ever in our fractious, uncertain times. Join me in a discussion of a way forward after reading my latest at The Huffington Post. “…What you may be feeling is not only about your political attitudes and who you voted for. It’s about the part of each of us that is crumbling along with the old paradigm that supported the illusion of separation, that told us we were on our own as we strove to survive and thrive in an industrialized, capitalistic society. As this framework disintegrates, we are finding our voices, reaching out and offering each other a...

Seeing with the eyes of the heart

Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were beautiful and heart-opening. To continue that expansion, I’d love for you to read my new blogpost at The Huffington Post, about the perception of the heart that we all have and featuring a How Do You Pray? excerpt from Robert Peng. “…Humanity is in great transition. We have an opportunity to see all the extreme diversity as expressions of our oneness. With compassion and empathy we can see that our lives are intertwined, that everybody counts, everybody matters....
