Let’s talk about Race and White Privilege, Parts 1 and 2

on August 8, 2020 in Freedom, Nonjudgment

As Rob Harper asked in the YouTube page: Can only white people be racist? Can black people be racist? What do you think when you see the police? What exactly is white privilege? Can blacks be privileged? Do all lives matter or just some and whose black lives? As Rob and I speak more (here is his appearance on my podcast and my appearance on his, among many other recordings[…] Keep reading →

75 years since Hiroshima

on August 6, 2020 in Freedom, Leadership

Growing up I thought the strategy of mutually assured destruction, while tragic, kept the peace. Speaking to Nobel Peace Prize honoree ICAN member Seth Shelden, I learned that we’ve advanced from that line of thinking and our world changed to where it doesn’t apply any more. As much as I’d like to hold on to something that made me feel comfortable or at least content, I have to drop believing[…] Keep reading →

Frederick Douglass: “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?”

on July 4, 2020 in Awareness, Freedom, Habits, Nature

I recently reread Frederick Douglass’s What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?, which he delivered on July 5, 1852—a celebrated condemnation of slavery by a man born a slave when it was legal in this country. You’ll do yourself a favor to read it if you haven’t recently. Here’s the passage where he turns the corner from praising the nation: I am not included within the pale of[…] Keep reading →

More inspiration from Nelson Mandela

on June 13, 2020 in Freedom, Leadership

I talk a lot about Nelson Mandela during the lock down. Americans lose our shit after a month or two locked down. We can access all the culture, music, art, literature, etc that’s ever been recorded. We can buy food from all over the world. We can talk to friends and family with video. Yet we act like we can’t handle it. Here was Nelson Mandela’s cell for 18 years[…] Keep reading →

Read her email below. Below the email I link to her writing. So you can experience the webinar too, here’s the video of it: Dear Josh,  Thank you so much for your email and for connecting with me further. In response to[…] Keep reading →

Habits aren’t my thing, despite what you might think

on May 20, 2020 in Fitness, Freedom, Habits, SIDCHAs

I want to clarify a point of confusion, probably my fault. Since I talk a lot about sidchas and habits, one could conclude that I focus on habits as a big part of my life. On the contrary, though I consider them important, they are less a big part of my life than they make worry and insecurity a small part of my life. For clients that come to me[…] Keep reading →

Life-Changing Habits Even (Especially) Under Lock-Down

on May 5, 2020 in Freedom, Habits, SIDCHAs, Stories

Here is the video from my webinar last week on life-changing habits during lock-down (and the rest of your life). Wondering if you should watch? Quoting attendees: “My boyfriend was an Olympic fencer and I texted him: this webinar is like  an insight into your brain. Now I see how you do everything and how you’re so productive.” “Holy cow, it’s so simple. It’s so true. I could immediately see[…] Keep reading →
