The Miracle of Breath

We are like beggars sitting on a great treasure of which we are unaware. Every day we take some 23,000 breaths, most of which pass unnoticed. Yet doctors tell us that proper breathing is the key to healing and preventing many diseases. Psychologists say the breath can help us calm agitated thoughts and emotions. Spiritual teachers, both Eastern and Western, tell us that attending to, and working with, the breath can be the catalyst for spiritual transformation. It helps us to return to the here and now, develop one-pointed attention, and deepen our prayer and meditation.

A Field Guide to Solitude – 2017

Never before in the history of the world have we been more connected to one another. Yet research suggests that never before have we been more lonely and discontent.

Contrary to common knowledge, however, loneliness and lack are not satiated by surrounding ourselves with more people, by piling up Facebook friends, or even by having an intimate relationship. There is no recipe for individual contentment other than an engaged relationship with one’s self. And that cannot be developed without learning how to be alone well.

Jumping Out of the Airplane!

“Rabbi Brian describes his theology as open as John Lennon’s, but that he is on a Blues Brothers-type mission from God. His outside-the-box approach to religion has both delighted and helped thousands of people live better spiritual-religious lives. Jumping Out Of The Airplane is part a dharma-talk part stand-up philosophy. Religious concepts of faith, trust, and belief are explored in a loose, enjoyable environment. It is for the spiritual-but-not religious, the religious, and those who aren’t certain if they even are spiritual.”

Seminary of the Wild: Michigan

Based on a deeper exploration of Jesus in the Gospels and Bill Plotkin’s new book, Wild Mind: A Field Guide to the Human Psyche, this 2-day retreat will use a nature based map of the psyche to help uncover and respond to those sub-personalities that encourage us to play it safe, fit in, and choose social acceptability over personal authenticity. While these “subs” desire to keep us small and safe, they also can keep us from stepping into the larger story God has planned for each of us.
