#MeToo: Eryn’s story

    It was a Friday night and I received an invitation to celebrate a friend’s birthday at a local brewery. I had previously made this friend after filming on location with him for a few months. He was generally a kind person with an easy disposition, and we laughed a lot through tough moments on set. When I arrived at the brewery I noticed he had had quite a bit to drink, and as the night waned, friends dwindled and he was left inebriated and alone. Concerned, I offered to walk him home to a fellow friend’s house. While… [read more]

A new year, a new board

    We are nearing the close of 2017. For many, it’s a time of reflection, celebration and anticipation for the new year. It certainly is for Eryn and I. Just as one would do with friends, we have a tradition of getting together with our spiritual guides. We laugh. We reflect. We express our gratitude for each other. This year-end meeting was particularly special since it’s the first time we are using the new “Convergence Board,” which we designed and produced. Our guides joined together as a Collective to offer a special blessing for our new board, which they… [read more]

#MeToo: Should we shame or transform?

    Is social shaming productive? Or does it drive an issue underground, allowing it to grow and later emerge even stronger? This was the heart of our conversation today as Elena and I discussed the #MeToo movement, a social chain reaction resulting from the New York Times article last October, detailing decades of alleged sexual harassment by producer Harvey Weinstein. Khaled, one of our spiritual guides who regularly participates on the board, joined us to explore this topic further. “And what is your emotional response to these stories?” Khaled asked of this pervading shadow in our ‘collective conscious.’ I started by… [read more]

Scarcity: Mother nature suffers silently

    In just the past two months, our spiritual guides have invited other ‘beings of light’ to join us on the board.  Eryn and I sensed there was a matter of urgency for on both occasions they have expressed concern and wanted to “bring a message to earth’s children.”  Back in June, Arpad spoke about mankind’s fear of “scarcity” and how it is impacting our planet. You can read about it here. Today, we were joined with another new friend, Seriph. While I tried asking about the escalating threat of North Korea, his focus was also about fear of scarcity and… [read more]

Scarcity: The most vile of illusions

  I remember the day when my son brought home a stray dog, which he named ‘Charlie.’ Charlie seemed like a sweet dog, even though he was a little apprehensive with me. I knew he had been roaming the streets for some time; he was clearly undernourished. So I quickly borrowed a bowl from Bella (our four-legged family member), filled it with food, and set it down. Charlie gobbled it up in minutes. When Bella innocently approached the now empty bowl, Charlie attacked her violently. Even though Charlie’s belly was full, his sweet demeanor turned into anger and aggression. This story… [read more]

Has the wave of political manipulation and misinformation flung you into fear?

  This week has been an important one considering recent events on the world stage: Rex Tillerson’s trip to Moscow and the mounting tension in US-Russia relations; the growing threat of North Korea and near provocation of war that prompted VP Pence’s visit to the region; and the U.S. attack on Isis in Afghanistan and missile strike in Syria. Eryn and I talked about what these events are signaling for us as a nation and the potential impact on our lives. I’m sure many of you have too. We even explored whether or not President Bashar al-Assad actually launched chemical… [read more]

Mirror, Mirror… A reflection about the truth of your beauty

  They say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. So when you look at yourself in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see all the beauty you embody or do you begin to make a mental checklist of all the physical “fixes” you need in order to feel beautiful? Thanks to mass media and advances in technology, we are bombarded by extreme standards of “beauty.” And those standards become more and more difficult to attain, particularly for women. It’s no wonder women are much more self-critical than men. Among women over 18, research states that at… [read more]

Our launch, our intention

We are truly excited to be launching our blog today, which includes a collection of many of the conversations we’ve had with our board members over the past year. At this auspicious moment, we held a special meeting with our board members—for the blog has truly been a co-creation with them. For the first time, they came together as a ‘collective’ [vs individually], an energy quite distinct, yet a resonance which was familiar to us. Here we share their intention [and ours] for the blog and celebrate with much joy the launch of what we hope will be a platform to serve others.… [read more]

Manifesting

Are you living the narrow scope of Ferrari-filled experience?

During today’s conversation with our board, the topic of perfectionism and exactitude came up. I admit I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist. And I know plenty of people who set the bar so high for themselves, that it’s nearly impossible [if not exhausting] to reach it. So we thought this would be a worthy topic to share. Until recently, I always thought perfectionism was a good goal to aspire to. It shows I pay attention to detail. It demonstrates I have high personal standards. It’s what defines my drive to progress professionally and financially. Sound familiar? But… [read more]

Honoring our collective origins

It’s the first week of July and we ended another week of more senseless violence: the deaths of Philander Castile in Minnesota and Alton B. Sterling in Louisiana at the hands of the police.  Then there was the shooting of the Dallas policemen, said to be in retaliation. And all of this came on the heels of the Istanbul airport attack, leaving 45 people dead and 230 injured, the coordinated bomb attacks in Baghdad, and the ongoing violence in Syria to name a few. So we are in a particularly somber mood today, wondering why there seems to be an escalation of violence and terrorism… [read more]
