Guest Blog: Mindfulness in Public Speaking by Robert Rabbin

Mindfulness refers to our capacity to see, understand, and relate to what is actually happening, rather than what we think is happening. That is why we practice mindfulness "techniques" — to nurture our capacity. The greater our capacity, the more mindful and aware we are, the more real and authentic we can be! Welcome to [...]

Accessing the Clear Mind

In my book, Drop In: Lead with Deeper Presence and Courage, I write about the challenges I worked through when first learning to access my clear mind. First I had to disentangle myself from thinking my thoughts were who I was and, instead, I learned to shift my awareness to the stable ground of presence. [...]

Guest Blog: “Everyday Sabbatical” by Chris Murchison

Buenos Aires. Six weeks. Private Spanish lessons. Tango. Empanadas. Iguazu Falls: all the trappings of an exotic travel adventure. Which it was, but my time in Argentina was much more than just a vacation. Which, as we now know, is extremely important for us. This sojourn was intentional, thoughtfully planned and carefully curated. After a stressful [...]

Do You Love Your Calendar?

Do you have an intimate and loving relationship with your calendar?

The Why of Stillness

While many people meditate to relieve stress, increase performance, and become more centered and focused, meditation offers a deeper possibility. Meditation can be the doorway for you to explore and inquire about the nature of your reality and the possibilities of your life. Through stillness and silence, you have an opportunity to see that you [...]

Are You Marinating Enough?

Now that the New Year is well under way, how are those resolutions working out? No matter if you have stuck to them with fervor or if they are already a distant memory, there is another way you can be in relationship with the things you desire and it’s called “marinating”. Last year I had [...]

Holiday Presence

As the holidays (and political transitions) are in full swing, it seems like everyone I know is stressed and overwhelmed. I too have felt the impact of the external world, and it makes me even more passionate about how much we need to to turn inward to listen and act from a place of presence [...]

Guest Blog “The Intentional Use of Silence” by Chris Murchison

Sometimes it can be hard to find the words to describe how exactly we feel. The words may be deep inside, under layers of emotion and locked up in our bodies. Or the words are swirling around inside and need time to be processed. Or you may fear using the wrong words, saying something that [...]

Navigating the Election Season with Presence

Every election season evokes emotion, charged rhetoric and drama, but this election season feels particularly painful. The jabs, accusations and downright cruelty are taking a toll on our emotional and mental wellbeing. As the primary election season wrapped up earlier this year, I tuned into my reactions to the outcome. As I felt my own [...]

The Wake Up Call That Changed My Life – and Career

I often get the question about how I started on my “path” towards presence. My answer is “when I got Bell’s palsy.” Bell’s palsy is a virus that paralyzes one side of your face and when I woke up one morning in 2009 unable to drink, speak or smile, at some level, I knew my [...]

Are You Bad at Meditation?

Recently, my friend and I were talking about meditation and she told me that she was starting to experiment with meditation. She quickly confessed that she was a “bad meditator,” and I thought to myself, Welcome to the club. But instead of saying that out loud, I asked her why she thought she was a [...]
