Declare Peace on Yourself at Our Annual Summer Retreat
Join Susan and Grace in the Oregon Cascades

Sue and Grace
Our 2013 Breitenbush retreat was such a hit we’ve decided to do it again. In the summer of 2014 we’ll gather to declare peace . . . on ourselves and in our worlds. By dropping deeply into inquiry through The Work of Byron Katie, we’ll investigate stressful beliefs and discover the wisdom beneath the pain. As we address these judgments, without criticizing ourselves for having them, we find a door to absolute freedom. “This helped me see how we are all a pool of beauty, mirroring each other. It feels so good to see and be seen. Grateful.”

The Grace of the Sea Stars

Sea Star painting
Sea Star is the name of a watercolor in my office, painted by a friend years ago when she was traveling in India. She was on the beach in Goa watching the sea when a local woman, arms full of colorful, dancing scarves, swept up to her: “Sea Star, You want to buy? “ It took her a minute to realize that the woman was calling her “sister,” not selling her sea stars or starfish.

And then there are the other Sea Stars, the variegated, orange and purple creatures of the sea that are also called starfish. Read More...

A Burn Center and a Kind Universe

Universe
Einstein famously said that the most important decision we can make as humans is whether or not the universe is kind. As I’ve practiced Positive Paranoia in my life, I’ve looked for evidence of a kind universe for the last forty years. Based on lots of evidence, my own jury has pretty much already decided. But my mind is still open to new proof. A few years ago my son awakened in the night with his bed on fire. He got out alive, even though the Burn Center doctor said he shouldn’t have awakened because of lack of oxygen to the brain. Read More...
