May Video Newsletter

Each month's video newsletter is organized around a central theme. This month's theme addresses the importance of knowing how to navigate the perpetual tug-of-war that exists within us between our need for change and our need for sameness. We can't function without accumulating routines and habits that enable us to exercise some measure of control and predictability in our day-to-day lives. We are also designed to learn, constantly undoing what we've done as we continue to evolve throughout our lives.

As Plato said, "Nothing ever is, everything is becoming." We are always traveling to who and what we are becoming. We can do that without thinking or we can be more intentional about the "becoming" process. Too little routine and too much change and we live surrounded by randomness, chaos and existential amnesia where we fail to learn from our past. Too much routine and too little change and our lives become stale, stagnant and we start to mimic the "living dead" so popular in the current zombie craze. 

Tune in to this month's Newsletter and see what's in store for you.

Enlarging Your Life - Weekly Blog

Every week, I produce a blog related to a monthly theme. The topics are drawn from cutting edge neuroscience findings about brain health, youthful aging, and other discoveries about how we can take care of minds, bodies and lives. I also explore the world's ageless wisdom traditions to identify perspectives and practices that can enrich our lives. Stay tuned. And, I encourage you to share your experiences with our growing community.

The May 2017 monthly theme explores the creative tension between sameness and change. Both are necessary for living a full life, but too often we lean too heavily in only one direction. I hope you enjoy this month's topic.

April Video Newsletter

Each month's video newsletter is organized around a central theme. This month's theme addresses the importance of sleep. We spend 1/3 of lives in sleep. Of this fact there is no dispute. But, our understanding of why we sleep, how we sleep, what influences sleep quality, and what we can do to obtain restorative sleep lags far behind. We do know assumptions about sleep rest on many myths that need to be debunked. We do know that sleep is a behavior shaped by our environment and culture. We do know that sleep is programmed into our DNA and is regulated by structures deep in our brains. Watch this video newsletter to learn how what we know intersects with what we ought to know to help us all feel better, function more clearly, and recover the energy to live lives that allow our individual passion and purpose to flower.

February Video Newsletter

Each month's video newsletter is organized around a central theme. This month's theme addresses the importance of connection - to others, to self, and to the world around us. We are fundamentally social creatures. And yet, our attempts to be social, to connect, to love, and to be loved are the source of much misery even as they are also the source of much joy.

How can we improve our ability to connect? What is involved in successfully connecting with heartfelt and authentic intimacy? How do connections improve our lives from the health of our brains to the health of our relationship to our selves, others and our larger world.

Webinar - Youthful Living at Any Age

What are the secrets for sustaining youthful vigor - regardless of our age? How do we unlock our brain's ability to keep growing and renewing itself so our ability to address our struggles more effectively? Whether you wrestle with depression, post-traumatic difficulties, panic, insomnia, pain, digestive distress, or relationship conflict, the central question is what types of life experiences and daily practices activate our "neuroplastic potential," the process by which the neurons in our brain rewire to support new habits and life-transforming personal change?

I'll be posting this 60-minute webinar, free of charge, through social media links to this website for your viewing, learning and personal use to jump-start your efforts to begin or continue to make the personal change you are seeking. 

I invite you to post your reactions and your experiences with applying the practices I offer. Thanks in advance for sharing...

What is Necessary to Begin Again?

The theme of our January 2017 Newsletter will be on what is involved with beginning anew. How do we form new habits? Why do so many sincere resolutions fall by the wayside? What does exciting new research pinpoint about our true potential to rejuvenate ourselves at the level of our cells? Why do many wisdom traditions agree that to go forward to be our best selves often requires us to first look back at who and what we've been? 

Watch for the weekly blogs, videos and other resources related to January's "enlarging your life" theme.
