Let Your Past Life be a Past Life

2018-07-06T18:25:35+00:00

I’ve learned that one of the main reasons people talk poorly about their past is because their present life isn’t working. For most people, living in the safety and comfort of the known past is a lot safer than stepping out into the unknown future. Living in the past also validates all of the traumas and betrayals we’ve had in our life, not to mention it makes for a great excuse why we haven’t been able to change. What most people don’t realize, however, is that when we excuse ourselves for someone or something, we give away our power to [...]

A New Level of Initiation-Tarragona, Spain

2018-02-02T20:50:10+00:00

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

2018-01-26T21:59:23+00:00

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 [...]

Staying Calm in the Eye of the Storm

2017-10-16T16:54:01+00:00

If you don’t realize that we’re living in what are overtly challenging times, then you’re probably not paying attention. In the micro sense, it seems everybody I know is going through something on a personal level. In the macro sense, these personal journeys are being exacerbated by threats of nuclear attacks, political breakdowns, financial crises, racial tension, mass shootings, devastating earthquakes, erupting volcanoes, merciless wildfires, storm-of-the-century hurricanes, and more. It is indeed a sign of the times…but I’m not playing the game, and I invite you to do the same. If you believe your thoughts and feelings have an effect [...]

Developing a Personal Relationship with the Divine

2017-09-08T16:52:59+00:00

To enter into any relationship, you’d have to agree that the first step is to have the desire to be in a relationship. If your heart is not in the relationship, it’s not going to work because by their very nature, relationships are heart centered. To have a successful relationship, you’d want to be clear on what you want in that relationship, as well as who you are willing to be or become—after all, a relationship is a partnership. It’s a two-way street. In addition, you must believe you are worthy of the relationship you seek, and you must be [...]

Three Simple Steps Towards Happiness

2017-07-26T16:10:30+00:00

Two of our most unique capacities as human beings are that we possess the facilities of self-reflection and freewill. This means we have the ability to look at where we are, where we’ve been, and decide where we want to go. While this certainly sounds easy, the catch is if you don’t trust that changing your thoughts, behaviors, beliefs, and actions will produce a change, then nothing in your life will actually change. Why? Because this lack of trust means you’re anticipating the same experience, and that anticipation creates the same emotion. This is the irony, as well as the [...]

The Pugilist and the Ego

2017-07-09T18:44:43+00:00

Even thus by the great sages 'tis confessed The phoenix dies, and then is born again, When it approaches its five-hundredth year; - Dante, Inferno, Canto XXIV   According to Egyptian mythology, every 500 years the Phoenix self-immolates, meaning—it voluntarily lights itself on fire so that it may be reborn as a greater expression of itself. It’s for this reason why I chose the symbol of the Phoenix for our back-to-back June Advanced Workshops in Cancun, Mexico, and for this reason why I named the event “Transformation of Matter.” I wanted our students to focus on completely burning away the things [...]

Through Initiation Comes Mastery

2017-05-15T16:33:00+00:00

When Grant Achatz was a young boy, one if his uncles often played pranks on him, and Grant could never tell if he was being serious or not. One day, his uncle wrapped French fries around a pickle and popped it in his mouth. Grant wasn’t sure if it was a prank or not, but he decided to try the concoction—and it was delicious. Grant’s young mind couldn’t understand why it tasted good because it sounded gross. That’s when his uncle walked him through why it tasted good; starch, fat, acid, salt, and everything in between that balanced it out. [...]
