The center is the brain child and life work of my dear friend Marc Gafni, D.Phil. The number of projects going on at the Center will spin your brain! It is wonderful to see so many excellent people be so involved. There are projects in business with John Mackay, CEO, Whole Foods, Gender Studies with John Gray (of Mars and Venus fame), and it will soon be the nhome of the World Spirituality Project which I am directing.
Patheos is the largest inter-religious site on the web. They do a wonderful job of hosting the conversation. The people who run it are first rate. They want to be commercially successful, sure, but they very much want to do that while serving a higher purpose.
I am currently seeking a position as an Interim Pastor. This site gathers the information, sermons, resume, and so on, that a search committee might need. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions!
A site dedicated to using neuroplastic mechanisms to manage persistent pain. If you suffer from persistent pain, there is enough information on this site – especially in the workbook section – to make a radical change in your life.
Jim Emmet is my cousin. This site is a bit off topic for me. Jim is an academic at heart. He is currently working on a magnum opus that synthesizes the enormous reading he’s done in history, philosophy, politics, economics and theology. He has read more than anyone I know. (That’s saying something since I know Ken Wilber.) When he digests a book, he writes what amount to “book reports” on them. These aren’t slap dash reports though; they are thoughtful analyses of the work and include substantive quotes along the way. If you don’t want to actually read Thomas Picketty for instance, you could go to Jim’s site and read a first rate synopsis of the book. I’ve been encouraging him to put these up on the web, so if you do read one, please leave a comment. That way he’ll know it is worth doing.
This site is home base for the work my wife Barbara, Claire, a number of our friends, and I are doing to use the Unique Self Coaching Process. We believe there are applications for this process that we’ve not even begun to consider. Join us, get trained and see if you can find ways to use it too! Members of the collective, (an astonishing, wonderful, group of people), aren’t competing. We’re encouraging each other.
My wife Barbara, a Therapist in private practice for 20+ years, is now practicing as a Unique Self Coach. Before developing the process with Claire, Barbara trained in everything from Gestalt Therapy, to Intergral Coaching, to Spiritual Direction. She holds a M.A. in Counseling Psychology, and an M.Div. Take my word for it, she’s magic. People just open up to her and when they do, they are very glad they did.
Claire is certified by Integral Coaching Canada Inc.® to use their method for personal development and sustainable change. In addition, with Barbara, she co-created the Unique Self Coaching – a spiritual development technology that facilitates the emergence of one’s Unique Self. In the last 20 years, she’s lived and worked on four continents in various capacities for private foundations and NGOs in Angola and Nigeria, in service of women and children. For the last eight she’s been working in personal development as a coach. None of that describes her grace, her sensitivity and her courage as she encourages her clients through the growth process. I know that because she has coached me.
