Recharge and Revitalize

I am very excited about a new program I am offering on line called Recharge and Revitalize. It is my passion to help people feel inspired, even when they are feeling disengaged, unheard, without a focus or direction. But also those who are already living their purpose but feel there is still something missing.   I sense a lot of that around in today’s world. I can help. That is why I wrote the book “The Path To A more Inspiring Future” and why I am creating “Recharge and Revitalize”. This course is designed as a journey to help you live your life on purpose, find your inner strength and build resilience to handle future challenges. It will be up to you.

I was intrigued by this picture of me within the root system of this large tree in Seville, Spain. Sometimes we already have all we need but it feels like a maze. Something like this tree.

During the program I will draw from my book. It will be enhanced

>by my experiences from workshops and retreats I led following my doctoral research on making life more meaningful,

>from my work with Lance Secretan

>from other books I have read,

>from knowledgeable people I have met who have focused their work on living on purpose with spirit in the workplace and

>from what I have learned from nature.

The class will run once a week on a Wednesday from 1:30 to 3:30 for about 8 weeks EST (Toronto time), on Zoom. Start date is October 5th.

  • If someone asks you where are you going in life do you answer “I don’t know.” 
  • The world has changed and it will continue to do so.  Does that concern you?
  • Are you burning out?
  • Do you sometimes feel like you are bush whacking in the forest without a compass?
  • Do you feel that life is OK but something is missing?

If any of those statements reflect your view of yourself, this course might be for you. It will help you find your direction, the one that is most meaningful for you. It will offer you an opportunity to uncover and reignite your passion, feel empowered, strong and compassionate. The answers are within you and this course will help you find them.

Cost of the course is $275CAD. But there are discounts. Are you really interested in the program but you just don’t have the money? I can possibly offer you a discounted price depending on your circumstances. Contact me

Until I get a registration option on my website, my preference is to be paid by electronic transfer. When you register and pay, I will send you a pdf of my book for your use through this journey we take together.

Love, Inclusiveness and Helping Others

“To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.”

I decided to share this reflection I wrote a few year ago on Nov 11, 2016.  It just seems pertinent today.  I made a few revisions to make it more applicable. Revised Dec 16, 2020.

This year, 2020 is a year that may be looked back on as historical for whatever reason.  A year that reminds us of the divisiveness existing in the world, not just in the USA and other free nations like Britain.  But is it possible that what we have seen in these great nations is democracy’s version of what “Arab Spring” was about in Egypt and the middle East? Is this a time when we need reflect on our soulful values, our “purpose under heaven” and live those values more openly and fully.  Today let us reflect on the lives lost in their fight against the Corona virus.  May such a pandemic not be the answer to the diverse values that seem to exist.  May we find the commonality in those values and build on them for good health and world peace.

“To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.”

The music of Leonard Cohen shares his sadness with us and brings me to a place of realizing how we need to acknowledge our sadness and our disappointment.  For me it gives me, in gradually growing stages, the inner strength to use the feelings of loss of something I had hoped for or someone I have loved.  I invite you to join me in resolving to identify our values for love, inclusiveness, and helping others.  I invite you in what ever way serves you best to courageously bring those values into your daily life at home and at work, in relationships and in parenting.

May you find peace and a constructive message to move forward with love and peaceful action.  May we all communicate our truth lovingly and honestly.  Peace be with us all.
