The Vision Paradox: The Best Way To Create A Visionary Future Is To Be Here Now

quality of your vision

Vision has always been a hot topic in coaching circles. Coaches love the idea that if our clients have clear visions, they will be freer, happier, and better able to create the futures that they desire. With that in mind we collect tools for crafting visions like knitters collect patterns.

But there’s a paradox at the heart of being visionary. If you don’t understand this paradox, working on a vision can actually get in the way of living your best life and doing your best work.

An Invitation To Peace

peace in the Andes

I recently returned from two weeks in Peru, where my friend Dennis and I trekked up to 16,000 feet in the Andes and stayed in a small village with the people of the Q’eros as part of my research for an upcoming book Sacred Medicine. What I gleaned from the trip was not what I expected. I didn’t come home with a “10 Things I Learned From the Shamans of Peru” list, though perhaps that will come in time. What I gained was something far more profound and much more difficult to translate into words.

What You Need Is Not "Out There"

the search

What you need is not "Out there".  I learned this valuable lesson when all hell was breaking loose in my life.  Oh yes, I've been there my friends.  How else could I talk about all this spiritual stuff without my life being balanced by failure?

How To Deal With Your Inner Critic

Dealing with your Inner Critic

Last week, Martha Beck and I co-taught the first of eight classes in our Coming Home to Your Spirit class. We were very excited about teaching something that would give us a venue to discuss publicly the kinds of spiritual concepts we’ve been discussing privately for three years, not because we think we’ve got it all figured out yet, and not because we consider ourselves experts in spirituality, but because as wildly curious spiritual seekers attuned to the vibration of other spiritual seekers, we yearned to create a way to share, learn from each other, facilitate dialogue, do some spot coaching, lean into the edges of our own growth, push the growth edges of those who participate, and call upon the Divine to awaken us all, if such an outcome is aligned with the highest good.

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.

It's Okay To Say No

Though I pride myself in being someone who has clear boundaries I still find my way into some sticky situations in which I feel uncomfortable saying no.

Discernment: A Superpower Worth Developing In Business And Life - You'll Need It.


I love what Iyanla Vanzant says "When you see crazy coming, run to the other side of the street".  Every time I hear this, I burst out laughing, because it's true, we must walk with a discerning spirit not in a judgmental way, but trust and honour our instincts about people.

How Loss Can Initiate You

Loss as Initiation

I’ve experienced a lot of loss this year. Most of the loss has come as my own choice, which in some ways makes it even harder. I can’t even fall back on feelings of victimhood because I’ve brought all this loss upon myself, not because I’m a masochist, but because I’m being called to align with the integrity of my Inner Pilot Light in radical ways. It’s hard and scary and wildly uncomfortable. And it hurts. My heart feels heavy as big changes have uprooted me. I’ve had to really lean into my spiritual practice to stay grounded, avoid the downward spiral into fear, find peace with uncertainty, and allow loss to grow my soul, rather than shrink it.
