Ordinary Awakening

This is from the May newsletter of Breathe Yoga & Wellness in downtown Pensacola: Ordinary awakening… Ordinary awakening? Ordinary awakening?? How do those two words go together?! Let’s find out, because they totally do. And it’s short notice (I’m still working on my marketing skills), but I’ll be giving a talk by that name at Breathe Yoga & [more…]

The Huge Gloomy Weight… Exposed!

I have to tell you about the coolest story that illustrates how we create the feelings in our bodies out of thin air. I really love this one. So I’m doing webcam sessions with one of the graduates of Gulf Breeze Recovery, the drug and alcohol rehab facility where I work part time. She learned all [more…]

Part 2, The Butterfly

Part 1 of this post described a downtrodden guy in rehab and on the brink of divorce. Pretty much over the brink, actually. It’s well worth the read. I and many others worked with him at Gulf Breeze Recovery (GBR), where he studied the Three Principles, and wow! His life sure has changed. Actually, it’s the exact same [more…]

Part 1, The Caterpillar

Today we are going to hear the tale of a caterpillar that has turned into a butterfly. I know, that sounds totally cheesy. Like, very cheesy. I really don’t know any other way of describing what I witnessed the other morning, though. Let’s set it up first. I’ve mentioned before that I work part time as a [more…]

Do I Have To Change My Thinking?

This post is from the Breathe Yoga & Wellness March 2015 Newsletter… “Do I have to change my thinking?” I’m so glad you asked! Because I hear this all the time. The short answer is no. And what a relief! People often confuse the approach that I use with having to change their thinking (by the [more…]

How to Spill a Smoothie

About a year or two ago, I switched to a smoothie for breakfast. It’s healthy, quick, inexpensive, and tasty. And I’m out of the milk and carb game from my cereal days. I’m no dietician, but it just feels better. I love it. Except when I spill the whole thing walking out the door in [more…]

The Three Principles

It’s time I finally write about the Three Principles, because that’s what I learned about in late 2013 that has really sped things up for me, my clients, and my friends and family. I’ve mentioned Gulf Breeze Recovery before, the inpatient drug and alcohol rehab facility that I started working part-time at in early 2014. In less than [more…]

Hello, Breathe!

Since I’m part of Breathe Yoga & Wellness now, I’m writing something for their monthly email newsletter. Woohoo! Here’s the first installment, a welcome and introduction. It serves as a nice overview to what I’m doing and how it differs from traditional therapy. And I really don’t mean any disrespect to traditional therapy. I really don’t. [more…]

The Science Myth

A friend of mine recently quoted another friend as saying, “If it can’t be explained by science, it ain’t real.” I don’t want to play the telephone game too much, and I didn’t hear the quote myself, but let’s go with this one because lots of people think this way. So I think we can [more…]

Waiting Is The Hardest Part?

The heater at my house stopped working this morning. I live in Pensacola, FL, which is in the extreme northwest of Florida, and it actually gets cold here in the winter. Well, not all the time but some of the time each year. I mean, I did go paddleboarding twice a couple weeks ago with only board [more…]

All anybody really wants is peace. The good news is that peace can be learned. I’m serious. This should be taught in middle school, but it’s not. So I’m teaching it now.
