• Jump. and *then* you get your wings. Some of you have asked me about how I’ve made my (many, many) transitions in life. How I’ve changed careers, towns, life approaches. I’ve been asked, variously: how do you know when it’s time to move on? How do you pick that delicate juncture between opportunity lost and opportunity ready to be gained? How do more
  • question: “how do you deal with infertility?” Every now and then I answer a question from a reader that I figure best to answer en masse…here’s one that struck me recently: I recently dug up this question from reader Dharma. It was in response to my interview with Brene Brown on vulnerability. It’s a doozie. Ok, I have a question for you. more
  • are you ready to meditate? The best thing I ever did was to learn to meditate. As in properly meditate. For years I flim-flammed around trying different techniques. They gave me the shits. I never “got” it. I then bit a bullet and tried Vedic meditation. I’ve talked about this style before here and here. When I first met Tim more
  • holding hands with the Dalai Lama… I’m in “Dalai Lama” land right now. Yesterday I interviewed him and we had a giggle. Tomorrow I’m chairing the Happiness & It’s Causes conference where he’s the guest speaker. In this shot (with the crew) he’s squeezing my hand over and over. And kept winking. Then, a few hours later, in the hotel lobby more
  • how to see signs I’ve been getting a few “signs” lately. I don’t know what you make of signs… Me, I think that patterns emerge as we go about life and they bank up – get blocked or layer up. A bit like stuff swirling down a drain; the stuff forms a bit of clump and we need to more
  • the resurrection and why we don’t have easter cards… a *great* read I went to church at Easter. It was a perplexing, emotional experience. My relationship with the Catholic church is a fraught one. But one thing I got out of the service was how the story of the Resurrection is one that can resonate no matter whether you believe a bloke called Jesus died at some more
  • people who irritate me “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” — Carl Jung I’ve been living and breathing this quote lately. I get irritated very easily. Slow walkers drive me mental. Men who grunt loudly at yoga. Talk-back listeners who get righteous about stuff they know little about…. What’s worse (for more
  • the one thing you’d keep If you were stranded, or homeless, or if the house burnt down, what’s the one thing you’d keep? It’s a great question. It’s a question that leads to so much whittling down of things. Once you whittle down, where do you stop? Artist Susan Mullaly posed the question to a bunch of people in Waco more
  • blue moon tonight! whoa. Here’s something to “Did you know…” your colleagues with this afternoon: Tonight it’s a rare Blue Moon. Rare? How so?As Adelaide blogger and healer Rebecca Dettman at psyched in stilettos helpfully writes: One Blue Moon, every once in a while (every 2.5 years to be exact), is rare enough. But how about two in the more
  • I found this Deepak Chopra tweet pretty funny, actually Not sure if you follow The DC on Twitter. I do. Although every now and then I “unfollow” him because he is a rather prolific twit… that is, he posts a lot of tweets! This morning, he posted this: No Gotham. Reality is the perceiver. The  perception is deception In response to this from Gotham, more
