The Path to Love leads us home to our Self

In a matter of days, I will be off to Colorado for a week long retreat that will test me to the core.  A retreat that I am looking forward to–completely. I find myself growing excited (not anxious) as I leave for a much anticipated vacation to an exotic place.  This exotic place though is…

SoS Thought of the Day: Your life is going to change.

Editor’s Note: I read a lot for the work that I do for Healthy Sense of Self.  A seemingly random collection of short and long pieces add up to a lot of words read daily–and much like my daily effort to walk 10,000+ steps–it’s a practice that “keeps me curious and engaged with living.” It…

Why do we do what we do? Whose life is it anyway?

Want to take part (for free) in our pilot online program? “Do You Have What It Takes to BE YOURSELF?”  We are launching a 3-week pilot of a self-study course on the Sense of Self Method.

Happy Earth Day: Spring is always true to its Self-No matter what!

“April showers bring May flowers.” It’s that time again—despite the “crazy” weather of the past two weeks. In the space of a fifteen minute window it hailed hard and fast, followed by sheets of sideways rain, and then the dark grey clouds dissipated, leaving snowy white clouds hanging in a bright blue sky.
