Here is a short exercise I use to increase empathy and compassion in my two-day forgiveness workshop – coming up in Hawaii in April. The precursor to compassion is empathy and after completing the exercise I encourage you to see how it connects and enhances your reservoir of empathy and compassion. For a deeper dive, I highly…Read More
Recently I did a keynote in Pomona, California, organized by Progressive Christians Uniting (PCU). Dick Bunce, the convener who presided on the conference, opened with a comment that “The conference is sponsored by PCU, the venue is in a spacious synagogue and our keynote speaker is Islamic.” That should tell you the tone of this…Read More
One of my Beatles favorite songs, Love is All you Need, says it all! May I suggest you listen and sing along to raise your current vibration to a place of love and happiness!

As we approach Valentine’s Day, LOVE is in the air and we will acknowledge our most cherished people with cards, gifts, flowers, and celebrations.

You do not need a personal tragedy to awaken you to the joy of giving, but…Read More
