CM’s Final Posts: You Can Fill the Space
Eighteen years ago, I wrote an article for a magazine that got me called in for a taped interview with a Fox TV morning news anchor. Being an effective communicator and a skillful public speaker was a dream of mine at the time. And still is. After some 30 minutes of prep with the station’s…
Websites to Visit, Blogs to Read
Here are some blogs and websites I like. It’s not a complete list. But it’s a start. The first is called New Moon Journal and it is written by Michele Bailey-Lessirard, a life coach, collage artist, and “shamanic astrologer.” On the opening page of her site, you’ll find a little slide show of her amazing,…

Damanhur: Heaven on Earth?
Do you know about Damanhur? It’s a 1,000-resident intentional community and eco-village in the mountains of Italy that’s currently attracting the interest of American spiritual seekers. In 2004, the United Nations acknowledged Damanhur as a model for sustainable society. Children are being raised and educated here, the adults farm and make their own food. Check…
Looking for the Right Mala?
Have to say these are the nicest wrist malas I’ve ever seen. Doesn’t their gorgeousness rip open your heart? You could use one to lovingly count mantras during your meditation practice. And while specific Eastern mantras are recommended for each mala, I say these sacred beads are multi-faith. If you fit your prayers to them,…
