Make a difference
How do you want to live your life? By expressing your talents and energies in a more meaningful way? By contributing to the greater good of real people and the planet? By acting with more confidence, poise, and sense of purpose?
In so many ways, our world is crying out for help. Our environment, economy, businesses, communities, and people of all stripes. The need is endless.
If you feel drawn to help -- and make your part of the world a more caring and life-affirming place -- I'm with you. I coach people to fire up their inspiration for good, then gather the confidence and resources to make it a reality.
No matter how small the contribution, the world needs you!
I work with most clients by telephone or Skype, so it doesn't matter where you're located. As long as you're able to call Boston MA in the US, we can find a way to work together.

Far from it, it's the first step in making real and lasting change. More...
Is there compassion in the animal kingdom?
My friend who is teaching a dharma course on Living with Kindness was asked this question in class last week: is there compassion in the animal kingdom? Of course, we can't really know. But here are a few video examples that suggest that maybe there is. More...
OK, so I'm a sucker for animal videos
These are a couple short ones, purely for your entertainment. The first is of a lion with a soft heart, who couldn't help but hug the woman who saved his life. And this second one is of a poor golden retriever being tormented by a mechanical Godzilla invading his bathroom. Enjoy! More...
