Thank you for taking the time to connect with me. I know choosing someone to assist you in life is an important decision. So, here is where I get a little time to let you know more about me. I started out early, like many people, intensely interested in spiritual practice. I was also hugely curious about love, relationships, creating the ideal life and helping people become what I call the Peaceful Self.
What is that Peaceful Self? Essentially it is YOU free from the worries, stresses and difficulties of life. Recalling that you are the Peaceful Self has a tremendous healing effect putting everything into perspective reinforcing the good that exists in you and everyone. When you are your Peaceful Self you approach life in a calm, curious, and compassionate way. Life becomes clearer and you are able to make better choices for you and everyone. Yes, at times you will “miss the mark” and forget the Peaceful Self you are. Your emotions will take over and you won’t make the healthy choices you need to. No worries, you can simply pull yourself back to “center” through the Peaceful Self Process that I teach and put things right again. Through the Peaceful Self Process I show you how to work effectively with your thoughts and feelings so they assist you and help you attract a more creative and fruitful life.
I’ve developed the Peaceful Self Process over decades now learning from everything I have done, including my professional counseling practice, best-selling books, retreats, radio programs, and my Soul to Spirit website (which when I ran it was the third largest spirituality and personal growth site on the Internet). To date I have helped tens of thousands of people live a better and more peaceful life. My clients over the years have run the gamut from the desperate and even homeless, to the rich and powerful. I’ve had the opportunity to work with people in all kinds of living conditions, at all ages, and have realized that in the end, it really is true — what makes life worthwhile is feeling at peace inside yourself. It is also about loving and learning how to be loved in return.
That is why another major quest in my life has been to learn what love is. In my own life and in working with thousands of people, I have learned that love is not codependency (giving to the point of your own depletion). Love is not lust (focusing only on the outer appearance of others). Love is not addiction (romance and sex addictions included). And, most of all love is not abuse (attempting to control and over-power others in the “name of love”).
The more we learn what love really is, the more we attract it. The more we understand how to love and attract love the more peaceful we feel. Peace also comes from self-acceptance. Peace comes from seeing others clearly and accepting them with discernment (sometimes we stay, sometimes we walk away, but in our hearts the love remains). Peace also comes from qualities we talk about but find at times more difficult to cultivate – gratitude, compassion, loving kindness, being in the present moment, knowing who you really are as a Divine soul living within a human body, who sometimes forgets the beauty, power, wisdom, and courage inside and needs some support to find it once again.
That is my intention – to help you find your Peaceful Self.. Whether I work with you as a counselor or lead you on a retreat one-on-one where I live in Ojai, CA or virtually through the phone or Skype/Zoom, I want you to remember who you are as the Peaceful Self. As I work with you, I will hold you in a compassionate space to help you understand why you are experiencing what you are. Best of all I will help you get free from thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are no longer serving you. And, once again you will remember you are the Peaceful Self too.
