Pathways To Conscious Living: Navigating Life’s Challenges
Pathways to Conscious Living grew out of my desire to offer a set of mindful tools which have served me well over the past 40 years and I believe can support others in their pursuit of a life filled with love and meaning. One pillar of this course is meditation, with the goal of not merely achieving mental and physical wellbeing but also to forging an unbreakable connection with a Universal Intelligence which pervades everything. Through that connection, participants will discover new pathways that can dramatically enhance mental and emotional agency.
The other pillar is the formulation of Intention; specifically regarding love, fear and death, which are central aspects to every human life. It’s important to understand that intention is not about how we want the world to be; rather it is about how we want to be in the world. Through intention, Pathways strives to enable participants to love more profoundly, confront fear more courageously and embrace death more peacefully.

- six two-hour sessions in which participants will meditate, journal and engage in group discussions.
- homework from week to week involving meditation, journaling and preparation for discussion groups.
