An Ancient Verse That Shatters The Illusion

I came across a poem this week that stopped me in my tracks. I was reading the Tibetan Book Of The Dead when the eight lines below jumped off the page. I’ve never seen a description of “source” written on paper so succinctly. This is the epitome of what we are touching at the height of ceremony and deep meditation – when we are truly awake. These words are now printed on the wall next to my desk: Remember the clear light, The pure clear white light From which everything in the universe ... [Read more...]

The True Peace

We’re entering a truly special time of year. If you look back across the sands of time, you’d be hard pressed to find a civilization that didn’t have the next few weeks earmarked for a big celebration. For some it’s the honoring of a prophet or savior’s birth, for others it’s a raucous week of reverie to fend off midwinter madness, for yet others it might be a sacred tribal ceremony to celebrate dying and rebirth in conjunction with the turn of the ...

“Sage” Wisdom

Winter hasn’t officially started yet, but you could’ve fooled me. Just about everyone I know has been fighting off some sort of cold or flu these past few weeks. We all know the feeling – rummaging through the natural medicine cabinet with nose running and the first cough coming on, while the inner voice cries out “why me?!?!?” After all, once the symptoms start it’s normally at least a few days before they begin to go away. One of the oldest medical texts in Traditional Chinese... [Read more...]

An Ancient Prayer For Compassion In Any Situation

No matter who we are or how spiritually enlightened we become, there will always be moments in life when our compassion toward others is challenged. It might happen while in line at the grocery store, or when you receive that unwanted sales call, but most likely, it’ll sneak up on you while you’re stuck in a plane, train, or automobile waiting to get somewhere 🙂 In these momentary lapses of compassion, there is usually a target “villain” that we project our ...

An Ancient Medicine Adorns This Autumn Holiday

As we gear up for Halloween here in the US, a different holiday will be celebrated on November 2nd in Mexico.  I’m talking about Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, and if you’ve never heard of it, this tradition is truly something to behold. Because of their proximity to one another on the calendar and mutually “macabre” costumery, many associate the Day of the Dead with Halloween, but this is far from accurate. The American adaptation of Halloween instills ... [Read more...]

How Are These Elders Living Past 100?

This week, it occurred to me that there is one question that only an elder can answer from real experience: what is the key to living a long life? When asked her secret, 102-year-old Kamada Nakazato of Okinawa replied, “Eat your vegetables, have a positive outlook, be kind to people… and smile.” Sounds like a simple bit of wisdom, but it pretty much encapsulates what modern science is now understanding to be the most important factor in longevity. Until a few decades ago, most... [Read more...]

The word is forgiveness.

You Were Born With This Knowledge. Remember?

About three years ago, my wife Michelle gave birth to our first child, River, and our lives have taken on a whole new meaning ever since. As one of my teachers once told me, “If you think that shamanic medicine is strong, watch out! Children are the strongest medicine of all”. I cannot express how right he was! What an incredible growth experience. My son River is like a cosmic mirror who reflects every emotion and thought pattern that we show him. We’re constantly learning ... [Read more...]
