Conscious Living and Conscious Dying

The hospice patients I served often spoke of the simple pleasures as being the best.

  • To listen with the heart and to be heard deeply.
  • To touch with care and to be held by love.
  • To notice the stars in the sky and the smell of the earth.
  • To give something back to humanity.
  • To reflect all these miracles back to the Universe with a grateful heart.

These are the things that give life meaning.

It’s only when we embrace our mortality that we can truly celebrate life and live deeply. Through my speaking, mentoring, and podcast, I’d be honored to assist you in creating a life worth living.

See with Love

The one I seek is within me.
Give me new eyes so I can see the love inside myself.
Give me new eyes so I can see the love inside others.
May I rise into love with all that is.
May I see all as sacred.
May I see with love.
