Good-Bye August…

    Two years ago today, after driving down the west coast on the 101 from BC all the way down to California, I set foot in San Diego with a TN Visa that was supposed to last until August of this year, and only lasted 7 months. I had dreams then. Dreams of final [...]


In Awe of what it means to be “in Awe”

This was sent to me by someone who has “played” with the 6 Acts of Receiving PlayBook.  She writes me enthusiastically, “This is what the PlayBook does!!! – This video says it all!!” The video talks about our responsibility to Awe…  what it means to open our minds and hearts up to an experience of [...]


The PlayBook is in the SUN!

I woke at 5:55am to the morning sun - literally and figuratively... Yup, it's here!!!   I'm SO excited about the article that just came out in the Calgary SUN - in the paper here in Calgary, and online nationally here in Canada! The article, written by journalist Tag Goulet, very generously talks about the [...]


The Great Bell Chant

This, from my Companion Mikel (Michael Cherrington) today... I had the priviledge of meeting fellow CEOSpace Member Gary Malkin in 2009, and 2010. Gary is a brilliant visionary and man of soulful music, I am in awe of this video in evidence of the gifts he shares with the world. Please "take this in" as [...]

The Arabian Sea at it’s best…

The waves here in India are very powerful - literally and energetically.   There aren't any land masses between here and the Antarctic so when they land, they do so unimpeded. There was ONE quiet place I was able to go during the day, without being surrounded by people.  It is fortunate to live with [...]


Reflections on Seeing Amma…


Snippits of the Amma Event

    I did not know that they discourage cameras or ANY recording equipment at these events until after I made the brief clips you will see below - when I made them, I kept them brief out of respect for the space, and then was told not to continue. But after MUCH contemplation, I [...]
