Magic, Miracles, and Mosquitoes in the Amazon – Oh My!
Is visiting the Amazon and going to Machu Picchu on your bucket list? I highly recommend that you bump it up and go sooner than later. You need stamina for this kind of trip. And it’s too good to wait.
I had the great honor and blessing to spend 15 days in The Amazon jungle, living on site with the shaman and his family, alongside 7 other American friends as we seek out the wisdom and healing of the Ayahuasca medicine. Afterward we spent 6 days touring around Cuzco, the neighboring cities, and finally making it to Machu Picchu.
It was an incredible trip in so many ways. It has been a few weeks since I got back and I am still struggling for words to describe and capture the full extent of the journey. Partly because all the pieces are still coming together. Perhaps that is one of the many messages that I am receiving: Life and her lessons continue to show themselves to me, long after the event is over. My job is to look, listen, and take in.
I’ve just returned from Sweden where I successfully introduced a new group of women to my Loving Your 3P’s program and, even more exciting, debuted my newest couples program, Hot Love: How to Increase the Heat in Your Relationship. You can see pictures of this lovely country and of my two events in the video below.
Creating an evening to show my growing Sweden community how to reignite and bring back the confidence, deep intimacy, spice, fun and heat of their current love relationship has been my constant dream and craving for the last five years.
I had 5 couples in the room who ranged from young newlyweds, to married with young kids, to divorced moms who are in a new budding relationship, to a couple who are intimately dating with no expectation on each other. It was super fun to see how Hot Love increased the heat, intimacy and connection for all of them. At the end of the night, the women were princesses and priestesses and the men were kings and heroes. YUM!
I am now recuperating and dreaming up how and when to bring this second program to California, New York, Canada, and anywhere else that the Universe wants me to bring this to. Are you interested? Wonderful! By clicking here you’ll be amongst the first to hear about the next phase of my Hot Love program, until then I’ll keep you nice and hot with some juicy tips to start cultivating Hot Love in your own life.
In February, I had the pleasure of flying to Dubai to teach a coach training class for The Coaches Training Institute, Dubai. The class had 18 nationalities represented, expats from all over the world were in the room. It was really fun and powerful to witness the students learned CoActive Coaching and bringing it back into the Middle East.
After the class, I got visit different parts of Dubai. Here are some cool places…
This is my last post of my yoga retreat in India, with my lovely Downtown Yoga troup. By the end of the trip, WE all had an amazing time with lots of insights, a well stretched-out yoga body, and a ravenous appetite for regular American food. After 48 meals of mostly rice with various vegetarian-salty-soupy “thing” we were ready for hamburgers, sushi, pastas, wine, chocolate, tacos, etc…
These three clips are just for fun! There is no deep meaning, other than humans are like rubber bands. We can stretch ourselves to reach new heights, but once we let go, just like the rubber band, we snap back to our old selves, maybe a little looser and stretched out, but we will most likely go back to our cravings and old ways.
During my yoga retreat at Yoga Nikaya, 50 km South of Bangalore, I met Raj Singh, President and CEO of Velankani, a fellow yoga practitioner. We got talking about leadership, India, and Indian managers.
Here are some questions we tackled…
How are Indian leaders in India different than the ones in the States?
What do we need to do to foster invention in India (and in developing countries in Asia too)?
