In order for us to create something new in our lives, we have to leave behind a portion of the known and familiar. This includes familiar thoughts, behaviors, emotions, and sometimes even relationships. For most people, leaving behind the illusory security of the known and stepping into the unknown can be a terrifying place. This is why change is so hard. It’s also why it’s so important to make your meditation practice a part of your daily routine. In teaching this work all over the world, I often times find people forgetting the reason why we put so much effort [...]

There are three types of stress—physical, chemical, and emotional. By the same means, there are three types of balance—physical, chemical, and emotional. Since all three of these elements are connected to the vessel of the body, my experience as a healthcare provider for more than 30 years has been that if you are able to get two out of three imbalances back into balance, the third one typically comes around. If you can assist your body into more chemical and emotional balance, it will be more prone to return back into physical balance. As the body moves into more physical [...]
At two of our most recent weeklong events—but especially in Santa Fe—upon leaving the workshop many people experienced flu like symptoms ranging from sinus congestion and mucus to body aches, soreness, fevers, coughs, and malaise. Some took antibiotics or drugs, while others went to see a doctor or visited the emergency room. Although the doctors couldn’t diagnose the conditions, for many of our students the doctors confirmed it wasn’t the flu or bacterial. So the next question is: What were people experiencing after the Advanced Workshop? The answer is a change in body frequency. The inner workings of cells are [...]
Let’s talk for a moment about falling in love. Think about the last time you fell in love with someone or the person with whom you are in love. How does it feel? First off, it’s exciting. The thought of seeing them, spending time, sharing experiences, and communing with them is inspiring. When you do get to spend time with them you feel connected, expanded, locked in, and aware of the moment you’re sharing. You listen, you’re patient, and you’re present. You give of your heart, your time, and your gifts, and in turn, you receive the same. In a [...]
All the work we’ve been doing for the last 5 – 10 years has been about teaching our students how to achieve brain and heart coherence in the meditative process. The results have not only changed their biology, neurocircuitry, neurochemistry, hormone levels, gene expression, energy fields, and immune function but when developed into a skill, our students have been able to apply these principles to lead more effective lives. In order for us to take our learning to the next level, it would make sense for us to set up conditions or situations in the environment where people might normally [...]
The balance between intention and surrender is a delicate one. Intention is getting clear on what we want and surrender is trusting in the best outcome. On the one hand, if you over intend, you’re trying to make things happen; on the other, if you over surrender, then you’re lazy, lethargic, and you’ll make a minimal effort. It’s a bit of a razor’s edge, which is why I think we have to lay down the very thing we’ve used our whole life to get what we want, for something greater to occur. It sounds easy enough until we have to [...]
I often hear people questioning why it is that what they are intending to create has not manifested. Normally, if you find yourself asking such a question, there are only a few reasons. The first is that you’re feeling separate from your creation, and if you’re feeling separate from it, you’re living in lack. This means you’re feeling and living from emotions that are not based in wholeness or gratitude, such as fear, anger, frustration, and so on. The second reason is that the very hormones that cause these negative emotions actually enhance our senses. As a result, we narrow [...]
The end of the calendar year represents the completion of one cycle and the start of another. It’s a time to let go of the past and to free ourselves from that which no longer serves our highest good. To do this, we need to first change our energy, because when we change our energy, we change our lives. As one cycle draws to a close and another begins, here are three simple steps you can take to change your energy and your life. Forgive the past. When beginning a new cycle, forgiveness is especially important. When we forgive, we [...]
When it comes to stepping into the unknown, intellectualizing a process or problem won’t cut it. In fact, I often find it’s the people who perform this kind of incessant analysis who feel the most fear and insecurity when confronted with the unknown. The reason is because they’re constantly analyzing themselves, their actions, and their place in the world within the emotions of fear, lack, insecurity, or unworthiness. If they instead understood that all these feelings are an emotional record of the past, they would understand that the very act of overanalyzing and overthinking means they’re looking for a solution [...]
Everywhere I teach in the world, many people tell me they want to experience the unknown, yet when push comes to shove they want it on their own terms. Here’s the catch—if something comes to you on your own terms, then it’s not an unknown. It’s a predictable known. So, what does it mean to step into the unknown? Everything we create begins with an internal idea, thought, concept, or image, whether it’s health, wealth, a relationship, buying a home, writing a book, composing a song, and so on. For some people, however, when external circumstances (such as serendipity, coincidences, [...]
