Warm Wishes for the New Year

I wish anyone that reads this will lose their ancient wounds in the new year. May their hearts fully open and their gladness increase and their sorrowful habits drop from them like dead leaves. If they have physical needs may they be met. If they need to be healed, let them be healed. If they […]

Let Go and Let God

Let go and let God. We’ve probably all heard it and, although we believed it’s the only way to true peace and attainment, we’ve wondered if we really knew what it meant and how to do it. Let go and let God. What does it mean to let go of a situation or an individual […]

The Miracles of Life

I’m impressed with how slowly, steadily, and silently some of the miraculous events occur around (and in) us. Several weeks ago I was privileged to watch my first snowfall of the season: I thoroughly enjoyed sitting and watching these silent flakes fall gently to the earth. Each of them is unique!! there have never been […]

Love: The Magical Ingredient

“Love is the magical ingredient. If you have love you have everything.” Phillip Schmucker, a long time friend of mine, made this quote when he appeared in the film New Frontiers in Healing. The film was shown on PBS in Detroit a few years ago. Phillip has crippling cerebral palsy and has struggled his whole […]

Coping With the Death of a Loved One

Several days ago I received quite a shock. I got a strong intuitive sense that a dear long-term friend may soon, unexpectedly, be making the transition to the next plane of existence. In other words, may be making the choice (albeit unconsciously) to die. Needless to say, I was upset. I cried – I wept […]

Separation and The Search for Union

Before we begin to discuss the issue of separtion and union, we might note, that everything we perceive is ultimately symbolically mediated, and symbols are interpreted by each of us idiosyncratically. Consequently, some of what follows may seem fanciful if you do not share my symbolic paradigm. For those of you that do, some of […]

How Reading Ken Wilber Can Help Us Understand Pain and Trauma

For those of you who haven’t read the transpersonal philosopher Ken Wilber, I would like to introduce you to the works of a man that has had a profound influence on my work. CRST (Causal Release System Training) grew out of my experiences with my clients and their transcendental memories. They kept referring to traumatic […]

The Evidence for Reincarnation

First of all let me say that I do not know for sure how the spiritual mechanism of reincarnation actually works. It is much like electricity. We know it by its effects and by the inner experience of ostensible memories of past lives. I say ostensible, because imagination and memory are difficult to separate from […]

Death of the American Soul: Reclaiming Our Lives and Finding Purpose

I don’t know where I have been these past twenty years – perhaps having worked for small, health conscious, non-profits has isolated me from what is happening to the souls of the majority of Americans – Americans who are forced to wake up well in advance of their own biological clock, who drive maniacally, fighting […]

The Tarot, Reincarnation and Immortality

I recently dug out an exceptional book to which I often return in order to ponder over its contents. The book is, Meditations on the Tarot: A Journey into Christian Hermeticism by an anonymous author. In thinking about what to write about in this column, I looked up the chapter on the 13th Major Arcana, […]
