Everybody Dies, But Not Everybody Lives

A lot of people who come to our workshops are very sick. While we’ve witnessed countless miraculous healings, not everyone makes it to the other side of recovery. I say this because recently we’ve lost some beloved members of our community. Many of you attended workshops with these people and formed deep bonds and friendships. Others of you have seen them as true inspirations who caused you to believe in yourself even more. When we lose people we care about we often find ourselves asking, why did someone who possessed such a will to live have to die? Speaking from [...]

Be a Part of Scientific History

It’s hard to refute the fact that we’re living in challenging times; divisive politics, fear mongering, the threat of terrorism, climate change, fluctuations in the stock market…While it’s a time of uncertainty, that doesn’t mean we can’t do anything. Let’s unite to produce a positive effect in the world. It’s now been scientifically proven and validated across 23 studies that peace gathering projects have been known to lower violence, terrorism, war, crime, car accidents, fires, and increase economic growth. That’s why I want to invite you to join a community of more than 7,000 people across the globe as we [...]

Discovery Finds Link Between the Brain and the Immune System

In a stunning discovery made by the University of Virginia’s School of Medicine, researchers have overturned decades of textbook teaching by determining that there is a direct correlation between the brain and the immune system. For years scientists have been trying to correlate the relationship between the two, yet they lacked the evidence to show how our thoughts and feelings (or neurochemistry) could affect our overall health. This groundbreaking finding could have significant implications on our understanding of how the brain and immune system interact, as well as enable scientists to target the immune system for the benefit of the brain. What this correlation hopes to uncover is the understanding of how [...]

Creating Your Future – One Step at a Time

There are four types of meditations that most traditions embrace; seated, standing, walking, and laying down, and in our work we practice all of them. After our workshops, many of our students continue doing their seated meditations at home. They wake up in the morning and the first thing they do is sit down to meditate. This is an ideal way to start the day. But does this sound familiar? You just had a great meditation, felt like you really connected, you overcame an aspect of yourself, and emotionally embraced a new future. You shifted your energy, you’re feeling powerful, [...]

The Greatest Unsolved Mystery—Evolution

Human evolution is perhaps one of the most fascinating unsolved mysteries there is. While it’s a scientific fact that we did not evolve from Neanderthal but coexisted with them, something seismic and unexplainable occurred in our evolution somewhere between 250,000 – 300,000 years ago. As animals and species evolved, their brain mass enlarged at the same ratio as their lungs, liver, stomach, and the rest of their physical structure. Most mammals reached the height of their evolution in brain complexity and mass around 250,000 years ago. Early humans should have developed and plateaued at the same rate as other animals [...]

The Magical Language of Serendipity and Synchronicity

All of us, in one way or another, are focused on turning the vision into a reality—landing the dream job, the ideal relationship, the perfect house, a book or record deal, healing an ailment. By focusing your energy on this new potential, experience, or outcome, what you’re actually doing is creating and summoning a new possibility from the quantum field (the place where all possibilities exist) into your life. This action is what creates a new future. If you are truly trusting in a new future, which means you’re open to the unfolding of your life according to its own [...]

Demystifying the Meditation Process

If your meditation practice continuously feels like a herculean effort, and you can’t stop thinking, analyzing, and wondering if you’re doing it right, you’re doing the exact opposite of what you’re trying to accomplish. That’s why I want to demystify the meditation process. The purpose of meditation is to slow down your brain waves and get beyond the thinking, analytical mind. What I want you to understand is that you already know how to do this, because you do it every day. If you can begin your practice with the understanding that all you’re doing is relaxing your body (just [...]

Making the Present the Present

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” – Ferris Bueller Three weeks ago I returned home from a workshop in Arizona to the Pacific Northwest. Not only was the juxtaposition of Arizona’s dry, sun-scorched earth striking against the Pacific-Northwest’s verdant landscape, it seemed as if in a matter of a few days spring had exploded forth from the earth. The grass was taller, trees were blooming, and flowers were blossoming. The vibrant colors of spring were so arresting, it really pulled me out of my routine program and [...]

New LSD Study Provides Insight into Higher States of Consciousness

There are four states of consciousness that contemporary science is aware of. The two that we typically operate in are wakefulness and sleeping. The third area of consciousness is dreaming, which most people don’t pay much attention to, and the fourth state—the one which we know the least about—is the transcendental state. This is the state of mind where mystical experiences or lucid phenomena occur that transcends space and time. Objectively inexplicable, the transcendental state transcends categories, is an experience that takes us beyond linear time and three-dimensional space, gives us insight into ourselves, and produces feelings of oneness with [...]

The Fishing For Your Future Challenge

I want to invite you all to a simple challenge that I think could have a big impact. As we all know, to produce a change or accomplish something new in our life takes time. Why? To affect change requires us to move our bodies through time and space—the components of 3-dimensional experiences. As an example, if you’re looking for a new job you have to search job sites, send out resumes, go on interviews, and wait for an answer. If you want a partner you might have to go on a dating site and look through profiles, then go [...]
