Create Change


It is not easy to change. There are so many choice points- they are fleeting and we need to catch them because it is the only way to change. And they are hard to catch because catching them implies letting go of the past. It means we become willing to feel our pain- accept it, know it is ours to hold and to find out the gifts that are inherent in the lives that we have lived and every single thing that has shaped us. The healing we can hold for others comes directly from this place. In the feeling and [...]

Alive and Kicking


  Radical Aliveness is alive and kicking. We have just finished our 3rd module at our new home in the hills of Bel Air. We finished a workshop at Esalen that was magical. And Mike Kubena, Peter Bregman and I just did our first two RA in Business workshops prototyping how to bring this specific work to the business world. Thank you to Amico for being so courageous to allow us to come and work with you. You inspired us and taught us so much. It is exciting to be part of a work that keeps evolving and maturing and growing and [...]

Coming Home


It began as a vision in New York City, and it was so strong that it caused me to give up everything I knew to move to a city I had never lived in, where I had only 4 contacts, in order to say yes to something that was calling me. In January of 2008, I landed in Los Angeles with my husband and no clue how this was going to happen, but with faith that it would. I wanted to do work that held power differently. I wanted to say yes to the wisdom of the group. In some ways [...]

Saying yes


Saying yes Once upon a time I almost died. It’s long ago and far away, but not really. Life has brought it back to me, again. Choosing to live was the first time I made a decision from a part of me that I need to remember tonight. I did remember tonight. And remembering brought me home to a guiding force that helps me to keep staying. I have just witnessed the way that death can take us, almost took me, even when we don’t mean to let it. Death is like that. And remembering that I got the privilege to [...]

This is how it happens. We come together, we, a group of beings who join in a common purpose, to heal. And in that field something happens. We hold each other, we affect each other, we help each other reach a realm where time and matter no longer have a hold on us. I can see it. You have cried, you have felt, you have been transported to this place where everything is possible. I see you- you have passed through that sacred doorway and you stand here where your beliefs and images have loosened their stranglehold on your mind, your [...]


I Love You Hate


Love and Hate text concept on white and black dices Hate: that dreaded word; that dreaded feeling. Something we are told to overcome and rise above; something that is the basest and most destructive of human expressions. Hate, I hate you. This is where we begin. I hate YOU. It starts this way, back in time, we are young, we are undefended we are open. AND WE LOVE, and WE LIVE and WE FLOW and we are so alive and one with our own life force. And it happens, once, twice, then again and again. Someone or something meets [...]

I just want to write about how it began. I imagine there are so many moments in life when a huge door is opening and we don’t even notice. We walk right by. In some ways my life had prepared me to listen. There had already been so many powerful moments that came because I listened. I had listened to the voice that said, “I want to live” when I was almost 31 and dying from drugs and alcohol. That time I had to be almost dead in order to hear, and the voice was close to a scream. As time [...]


There is no one to blame


I am not interested in blame. I am interested in liberation. Liberation comes from profound self – knowledge. The knowledge that comes when all blame is dropped and the arrows that go out with every incident, trigger, annoyance, fury, and conflict turn around and come flying back to pierce us to our core, touching the places that we need to see and feel to come all the way home.  The mantra becomes “Let me take full self responsibility for myself. Let me see who I am in this relationship. Let me feel all of who I will be if I know [...]

Fear Not Fear


Fear. Be afraid, be very afraid, who told you not be afraid? Who said being afraid was bad? Be afraid. Something is coming and you don’t know what it is. Can you imagine being a human and not being afraid? How in the world can you be alive and not be afraid? Reality is HUGE- facing reality is scary. Life is HUGE – we are not in control. Just that is enough to scare the pants off of us. If we really allow the truth of life to hit us, then something is coming in every moment and we have NO [...]

If we are willing…


If we are willing to feel our fear we can have great courage. If we are willing to make mistakes we can take big risks. If we know we are human we can own up to our mistakes. If we are willing to lose control we can follow our deepest truth. If we are willing to stand alone we can say no to what isn’t right. If we are willing to see, we can care for the whole. If we are willing to feel our pain we won’t pass it on. If we are willing to give we can give what [...]
