My New Column

This is going to be a brief update because I’m pretty consumed these days with a new, unexpected stressor (on top of everything else already going on… ugh). I’m not sure when I’ll be back and able to write on a regular basis again, so just be patient with me and I’ll let you all […]

Looking for professional guidance, or have obstacles that are too big to overcome on your own?

A Quick Story…

It is said that soon after his enlightenment, the Buddha passed a man on the road who was struck by the extraordinary radiance and peacefulness of his presence. The man stopped and asked, "My friend, what are you? Are you a celestial being or a god?"

The Buddha replied, "I am awake."

I don't want to be just alive, I want to be awake. I want to help you be awake, too. Read more about me and the mission of my work →
