My vision is a world where conflict is communicated and used to stimulate personal freedom and expression for all mankind. My mandate is to reduce conflict using love as my primary tool. My life's work is to learn and then share my learning with others. I am supported by a wonderful loving husband named Pedro, a loving family and many friends. I derive income from helping my clients build and protect their wealth as a financial planner and occasionally from spiritual fitness coaching and speaking engagements.

Sunday is for…sunshine

When I was a boy and something bad would happen my mother would say to me, “into every life a little rain must fall”. Now, living in Vancouver I would have to say that I have become very acquainted with rain. What my mother did not include, so I think I will, is, “and into every life…

Are you searching for heaven on earth or is your life a living hell? Either way it is pretty clear that we get what we believe. In fact, the funniest thing is that one person’s version of a living hell (for example my mother jumping out of a plane with a parachute) could be another’s…

Today I continue my journey with my husband in Barcelona. We were in the subway and witnessed a pick-pocket steal the wallet of a woman on the Metro. The husband of the woman who lost her wallet let the thief off the train without hassle and immediately called the police. How interesting he thought the…

A change is as good as a rest…

Christ Statue Rio

What is it you would change about your favourite religion given the chance to do so? What an interesting question this is to me. I was raised in the tradition of christianity and it took me nearly 3 decades to discover that it did not reflect my real beliefs and certainly was not a good…

Good people, bad intentions…bullshit!

Lately I have been around the proverbial mulberry bush with a matter concerning a very dear friend of mine. The issue is that it is difficult to ascribe intentions to individual members of his family and the result is their behaviour is at least perplexing and at most vile. So in keeping with my philosophy…

Jesus is a verb…

My husband shared with me a song this morning that is popular in Spanish. The title is Jesus is a verb and not substantive. Now that does not translate all that well into english. When he first gave me all the words in english using a translator I found the meaning was slightly obscured and…

Inspiration or perspiration…

Context is everything. When you look at the photo do you see a relaxed woman communing with nature or do you see the straining neck muscles of a woman holding a pose that is uncomfortable so the photographer can capture a moment in time? No matter what you see in the photo, it is valid,…
