Finding your dream, pt. 3: “Kabbalah and the Power of Dreaming”

Now this book is simply no easy read.  And, what if you’ve never heard of the Kabbalah before, let alone have any idea what it is?  In case you would like to know, Kabbalah is a medieval branch of mystical Judaism that has recently—mostly in the decades since the Holocaust—begun to speak to a broader […]

Finding your dream, pt. 2: “The Alchemist”

Have you ever felt the touch a person so powerful, yet so loving, that it was an unquestionably magical encounter?  Have you ever felt as lost in life as can be, yet known that there were signs and signals all around, pointing you in the right direction if only you could note them and respond […]

This diagram PROVES you don’t need a script!

Ron Ellis goes heart to heart

I wonder how many of you know Ron.  If you do, you know Ron has a lot to say.  If you know him, you also know he’s got a mighty mind and its always working.  It never stops working. That—Ron and I discovered today—has been a very big problem.  I’m not sure why, but I […]
