Bringing Your Gifts to the World

It is our duty as men and women to proceed as though the limits of our abilities do not exist. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin I just watched the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions for this year. The most surprising was Joan Baez, Folk music icon from the 1960s whose career began in coffeehouses […]

If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing. – Marc Chagall Love is a sacred reserve of energy; it is like the blood of spiritual evolution. – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin I recently saw a short film tribute to Chuck Berry, the undisputed father of rock and roll, […]

I’m in the West of Ireland where in a few days I will meet a small group of travelers as we explore the music, myths, magic and mystery of the place, the people and the culture. I am always struck for the support for the arts in Ireland and just discovered a poetry walking tour […]

By • Apr 1st, 2017 • Category: Creativity Coaching, Life Coaching

We all know that relaxation makes us and our bodies feel good whereas stress causes us to tense up and feel less that optimum. New scientific research shows just how important relaxing our bodies and minds is. The emerging science of epigenetics shows that our genetic expression is not permanently fixed at birth, but actually […]



Nature the Greatest Inspiration

By • Mar 16th, 2017 • Category: Creativity Coaching, Life Coaching, Writing Ideas

Among my favorite nature writers are Thomas Hardy and John Steinbeck. Best known as literary giants, they brought an extraordinary sense of the natural world to their work. In the first chapter of Hardy’s Return of the Native no humans are introduced. Rather, a place, Egdon Heath takes center stage in all its wonder and […]



How Is Surrender Essential to Being Creative?

By • Feb 28th, 2017 • Category: Creativity Coaching, Life Coaching, Writing Ideas

We can’t force creativity. We know this intuitively. If we told a painter that we wanted a masterpiece by five o’clock tomorrow, they would look at us like we were crazy, that we clearly didn’t understand what being creative was all about. An important part of being creative is learning to surrender to the flow […]

Nature is not what you think! … She has a soul, she has freedom, she has love, and she can speak. – Fyodor Tyuchev In challenging times such as these, nature can be a great source of solace and support. Simply being in nature slows down our brain waves from everyday busy beta waves to […]



Creating the World from Love

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete. R. Buckminster Fuller I am a citizen of a country that does not yet exist. Dr. Vincent Harding I suspect most of us are feeling challenged by the large scale of change taking […]



Are You Adrift in a Sea of Distractions?

By • Jan 14th, 2017 • Category: Creativity Coaching, Life Coaching, Writing Ideas

I started writing before the development of the personal computer, when cut and paste meant I was down on the floor with a pair of scissors and a jar of that thick white glue that smelled vaguely of peppermint. It was in many ways a simpler time with far less pulling on my attention. Every […]



Creating Your Best Year Ever

Amid what seems like a world gone mad, can you relax, take a deep breath and consider the possibility that all that is happening around us, that seems so disturbing, is really an opportunity for so many to awaken to the divine spark within each of us. The place that holds the light and the creative […]
