OUR MOMS

Many of our mothers are in a period of transition, in the midst of changes, growing and entering new stages in their journey. Maybe we recently left home, and mom finds herself in a childless home for the first time in years; or perhaps she just became a grandmother. Some mothers are experiencing menopause, or the reality of old age, or the loss of a loved one. Whatever is happening for them or wherever they are at in their development, let’s give them a sacred space- A space with someone special who will know how to listen, so that they will speak about what is truly important for them. Give mom a space to believe that their dreams could finally become a reality; a space to explore new possibilities, and rekindle her zest for life.

BE DO HAVE- WHAT’S YOUR LIFE PARADIGM?

I conduct Life Transformation Skills seminars. These seminars provide an environment for spiritually-based personal development. During one part of the training we ask the participants what are some tangible, material things for which people strive. Typically the resulting list looks something like this: cars, computers, a big house, attractive spouse, children, job, jewelry and vacation […]

INTENTION, CONSCIOUSNESS & LIVING OUR VISION

0% Action The Satvatove approach to growth and transformation is founded in spiritual principles of personal development. Our spirit self has intrinsic ways of being.

Share Experience; Suspend Judgment

Language Reflects Consciousness Who’d like to share their experience?” A common refrain in the Satvatove programs, this question often results in responses such as “I was too distracted,” “My partner is so nice,” or “I’m a terrible listener”. I regard such expressions as judgments, rather than sharing of experience. Also in personal feedback exercises we […]

Strategies For Living- How are You Surviving?

An Uplifting, Purpose-Filled Spiritual Pursuit Self-awareness moves us to choose life-enriching principles by which to live, some of which, such as Be-Do-Have, clear intention, and keeping agreements, have been described in previous articles. Spiritual principles for personal growth are universal, and thus, even if we are not able to articulate them, they are familiar, being […]

Feedback And Attitude Of Gratitude- How to Receive Feedback Gracefully

Personal and interpersonal development is founded on effective communication, and much of communication assumes the form of what we sometimes call “feedback”. In listening with empathy we implicitly send feedback that says “You matter. I am interested in you.” Our non-verbal communication is feedback for people around us. When we share an immediacy statement, such […]

Be a Distinction- Who Are You In The World?

Being Authentic Is A Key For Vibrant Living For most of us, consistent authenticity involves conscious, courageous effort. It’s a challenge to recognize our deceptions and pretenses, and differentiate them from actual self-discovery. Each moment our integrity is connected with willingness to be authentic. Authenticity vitalizes our immediate experience, and also enriches the service legacy […]

CREATING WITH OUR WORD

In The Beginning Was The Word Just as the supreme creates with his word, we too, as parts of the ultimate source, create our lives with our word. In the Vedic tradition there is a literature called Upadeshamrita, or The Nectar of Instruction. It is a short book, and concludes with a depiction of the […]
