The Masks We Wear

“When it comes to recognizing the truth of our own identities, most of us experience a symbolic version of blindness that keeps us from seeing ourselves for who we really are.” – Christopher Heuertz This quote just crossed my awareness, as I am reading “The Sacred Enneagram” book. Several recent themes in my life are […]

On a Journey of Awakening

This is a topic I gave a presentation on, this July, and it is an evolving area for me, both personally and professionally (keep reading). Here, I am reviewing and fine-tuning my thoughts on this whole fascinating, rich, juicy, and confusing area of “awakening.” What is it? Where can I get/buy/learn one? Why do I […]

What Do I Know?

The only real question is not one of winning or losing, but of experiencing life with an ever-increasing depth. – David Whyte As the Right Livelihood Quest website has been updated to a new look, there is still a section that needs a review.

Given that it is Vancouver, they are also getting quite wet. Winter is coming. Archetypes is a concept that was brought forward in various teachings and traditions (I know, it […]

Riding the EAC

This was a very different Friday. I didn’t really do any work. Meditated in the morning.
