A B 1440Multiversity_SocialMedia_CampusHello everyone!

My blog had to take a back seat for a spell as I was consumed all summer and fall with moving from Vero Beach to Hobe Sound.  Now I am back in action, and happy to announce a bunch of awesome teaching opportunities that have come my way.

The first is the weekend of May 4-6 at 1440 Multiversity near Santa Cruz, CA.  It is such a big honor for me to be teaching here, amongst other presenters like Elizabeth Gilbert, Martha Beck, and Bruce Lipton.

The Quest For Inspiration is all about increasing joy, and allowing life to unfold in miraculous ways.  After this weekend, your life circumstances will change in ways you may not have thought possible.  I will share my proven formulas to accelerate creative thinking.   I’ve been teaching the Quest for Inspiration at Rancho La Puerta for over 18 years, as well as presenting in the corporate world, and at TEDx Hollywood CA.  But this is the first time people can take this class for just $315 and get a whole weekend of awesome juju with a bunch of like minded people.  It’s going to be a blast!  Hope you can sign up today!

Also if you have never been to Rancho La Puerta, I will be teaching there the week of June 23-30th.  If you are a first timer, and you mention my name, you will get 5% off the best rate, plus a $250 gift certificate, and room upgrade if available.  The mountains of Baja are wonderful in the summer. If you prefer cooler weather, think about joining me the week of November 3rd, where I will be talking about the connection between astrology and the food we eat.  This is a special event through La Cocina Que Canta, the Ranch’s magical cooking school where you go out into the garden and gather your food.

If you live in San Diego, I am the featured speaker at A Day of Namaste with the amazing yoga genius, Stacy McCarthy on April 8th.

Teaching at Rancho La Puerta SpaDuring the week of September 21, I taught my creativity program, along with an interactive Astrology workshop, at the Rancho La Puerta spa in Mexico.  Many of my students were only familiar with the horoscopes you see in newspapers or magazines.  That is predictive Astrology.  It is like listening to a meterologist.  It’s good to know weather patterns. The type of Astrology that I practice is more about how to be comfortable inside your skin, and how to be compassionate with others.  I teach Astrology as a way of understanding your wiring system….and also the different wiring systems of those around you.  Some people in our lives are wired so differently than the way we are.  Without understanding these differences there can be friction.  Everyone has a specialized operating system.  We can’t expect everyone to be just like us.  It’s like trying to get a Mac computer to behave like a PC.  It’s not going to happen.  People are what they are.  An Astrology chart shows us our basic nature.  However, it is our choice as to what we do with what we are given.  Some people have very complicated wiring systems.  They are like fancy sports cars.  Fun to drive and quite rare, but if they ever have a mechanical problem, it might be hard to find the right mechanic and it’s probably going to be expensive.  This is neither good or bad.  Just as a Volvo or a Ford Taurus have their own special positive and negative features.  One student, at Rancho La Puerta, asked me to suggest some beginner books about Astrology.  I sadly did not have a lot of options for her, since most of the books I love are too advanced for a beginner.  My goal is to write that great beginner’s Astrology book!  It is in the works!  But in the meantime, try INNER AND OUTER SPACE by Caroline Casey, and have fun reading anything by the late Linda Goodman.  She has a great way of describing the essence of the Zodiac signs.  My favorite authors are Liz Greene, Stephen Arroyo, and Robert Hand.  I always tell people to go to a bookstore and check out all the books in the Astrology section.  See what calls to you.  Do you have any book suggestions for a beginner?  I’d love to have you post your suggestions here!
