When I was in medical school, one of my professors asked us, what we believe is the most dangerous risk factor for heart attacks. “I'll give you a hint, it isn’t smoking, high blood pressure or high cholesterol.” Well, since crickets was all he got from his students, he continued: “I know this is a trick [...]

In the light of numerous terrorist attacks around the world it is tempting to let fear and anger take the reins.

The Tablets of Light

May 17th, 2017|Empowerment Radio, Personal Breakthrough and Empowerment Tools|

Eighteen years ago I was in the high desert of New Mexico at a kundalini yoga retreat. It was my birthday, and I was bracing myself for a long day of meditation and exercise with 1,600 other yogis and yoginis.  Keep in mind this is not the sitting-on-a-pillow-and-letting-your-thoughts-float-away kind of meditation. Part of the philosophy [...]

Are you afraid of getting older?  Of losing your vigor, your looks and ultimately your sense of being in control? For a long time I told myself that most of my life was still ahead of me, which is why I didn't spend much time thinking about aging or dying. Yet, when I turned 50, I [...]

Are we more comfortable with lying and liars?

February 6th, 2017|Empowerment Radio, Personal Breakthrough and Empowerment Tools|

In a world where fake news, alternative facts, and blatant lies are more and more the norm, truth seems to have become a rare commodity.
