Are You a Reaction Machine?

“People gifted with wonder tend to be easy to spot. They have a joy that seems to require no data and is not diminished by seeming evidence to the contrary.

You don't have to be a yogi to benefit from this!

“Mindfulness is not something that is only done in the meditation hall, it is also done in the kitchen, in the garden when we’re on the telephone, when we are driving a car, when we are doing the dishes.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

A Direct Path to Becoming Wise

Quality Time at Its Best

Marina:  I know that Alex loves me, and even when he is away from home traveling for business a lot, I do know that he loves me. But knowing that he loves me and experiencing his love are very different. We have worked out a method that has really been good for us over the busy years of raising kids and raising our business.

A Divorce That Set Her Free

Jerilyn: I got a wake-up call that shattered the foundation of my life. My husband Ted announced that he was leaving our marriage.

When He (or She) Won’t Open Up

One of the most frequent complaints we hear from our clients and students (and admittedly, it tends to be women who are voicing it) is that one partner is resistant to talking. Their complaints are “I can’t get him to open up. No matter what I do, I get nothing more than a one-word response. Sometimes I don’t…

Reaching for the Joy Zone

Charlie: Several years ago, I attended a lecture by a well-known spiritual teacher and arrived twenty minutes late. On my way in I asked the doorman to give me a condensed version of what I’d missed. He paused for a moment then said two words:…
