5 Life Lessons I Learned From Hiking


Daily life can bring with it a lot of stress. We get caught up in our obligations to work and our family, so sometimes it’s hard to make time for ourselves to recharge - but that’s exactly what we need to do on a regular basis. Finding an activity that hits your internal “reset” button so you can feel rejuvenated and ready to take on the daily grind once again is necessary not only for coping with stress, but for living a healthy life - whether it’s meditation, yoga, going for a run, or swimming some laps. For me, that activity is hiking.

Conscious And Unconscious Regression: Discovering And Reliving Earlier Experiences That May Influence How You Behave Today


In a psychological context going back to early or past behavior is termed regression.  Originally Sigmund Freud classified regression as a defense mechanism for coping with stress; where one reverts to earlier, more childlike patterns of behavior to cope.

Inside Couples Counseling Tips: 10 Ways To Stay Connected

 In couples counseling with us, couples complain that they’ve grown distant. They find themselves living parallel lives under the same roof. Lives are ruled by roles, routines, and deadlines, and they feel no real connection with one another. Lost is the simple joy of being together and even the idea that spending time together might be "fun”. The person who was once their best friend is a stranger or worse an enemy. Sex has been put on the shelf gathering dust like an old trophy. Many numb themselves with alcohol or other substances to avoid dealing with the painful reality of their relationship.

Love Machine – The Secret To Being At One With Technology…

Smashed computer monitor

When I studied alchemy a couple of decades ago, we were taught that everything with a physical form has a body, a soul and a spirit. It may be hard to wrap your head around, but I like the idea that inanimate, man-made objects have some kind of consciousness…except one time when, under the influence of marijuana, my psyche for a few seconds became intimate with the consciousness of a door handle. As you might expect, it felt terrifyingly dense, and I was very relieved when my brain morphed back into its infinitely preferable, drug-addled human state. Needless to say, I have steered clear of the more hallucinogenic substances…

The difference between stumbling blocks and stepping stones 
is the way one uses them.

Refugees: Remembering 9/11


I woke up, that September morning, with a stiff neck and a sore right hip from sleeping on the couch in my cousin Dinaz’s living room. My fifty-two-year-old body, unaccustomed to narrow, hard mattresses and the slope of couch cushions, ached. Dinaz’s apartment in midtown Manhattan was air conditioned and so cold that I wrapped a blanket around my shoulders even though it was still summer and in the high nineties outside. I opened the blinds and blinked against the dazzle of sun. Fourteen stories below, the street was a narrow canyon shadowed by tall buildings.

Are You Involved With A Narcissist?

Narcissus or Echo?

I was deep in the heat of a conversation with a guy friend of mine, as we sat across from each other at the dinner table. I felt fire burning inside of me. He said, “Tell me what your Small Self is saying right now?”

I glared at him and said, “My Small Self is saying there are two kinds of men.” I paused for dramatic effect. There was venom in my voice.

How Does An Orgasm Change Your Life?

How Does An Orgasm Change Your Life?

The big question I ask: Is sex a life-changing, rejuvenating, transformative and deeply pleasurable experience for you?

If not, you are doing it wrong.  

I say this without judgment.

It’s only to say that sex is meant to change your life and create new life.

If you aren’t using it for that purpose, you are missing out.
