There will be hard days When they come if you wish I will arrive with blanket bowl and bell I will arrive with water oil incense fire and flute We will sing talk sit laugh cry and pray I will see you You will see me We will see things as they are On the hard days and they will come you will have my hands feet eyes ears mind and heart If you wish I will arrive bear witness to you with you in the dark with a light Eyes open fully I will not look away Dear one you are not and need not ever be...

23. September 2022
Just a few days after mid-September each year, the dawn light breaks directly east across our drive, Tara. That day was this Wednesday last. Sol blazed orange as I looked down the drive, and turning east, as I have done in years past, that same light is mirrored in the glass of Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus Catholic Church, named after the “little flower of God,” sigil Saint of my dear patroness, Brooke. I have often considered this clean east-west alignment a bit of a hinge-moment, a...

10. September 2022
Today is my mother’s birthday. She is spending it in the hospital facing serious health complications—it is an evolving set of circumstances. The Dharma and practice have been good medicine, but I am in need of a larger dose day-to-day as I walk with my mother. This morning I woke to watch the decline of the Harvest Moon, and shortly after, I was blessed to sit and watch Sol rising as I sipped warm coffee with my ancestors, particularly my grandmother who passed into memory just a few...

Episode 122—The Shifters—ft. Steve Taylor, author of "Extraordinary Awakenings"
09. December 2021
It was a profound moment of illumination in the midst of deep personal pain and set in motion years of curious seeking, discovery, experience, and practice that has offered shelter over my life to this very day. Perhaps this was the reason I so enjoyed the new book by Steve Taylor, "Extraordinary Awakenings: When Trauma Leads to Transformation," and why I was so eager to have him visit me on "Find the Good News." Steve's new book is a collection of potent awakening stories spanning across a wid

In the episode of Find the Good News, I visit with Kori Hahn, author of the new book "Rituals of the Soul: Using the 8 Principles of Yoga to Create a Modern & Meaningful Life," published by New World Library. In her book and through our conversation, Kori shares the textured and rich accounts of her own journey while imparting important Yogic wisdom in a digestible and engaging format I'd not yet experienced.

Episode 120—The Permission Slip—ft. Regina Louise, author of "Permission Granted"
07. October 2021
In this episode I visit with Regina Louise, author of the new book "Permission Granted: Kick-Ass Strategies to Bootstrap Your Way to Unconditional Self-Love." Regina is an energetic light with an attractive vibe that makes you want to latch on to her message. It would be easy to say that she's overcome a lot in her life to get to this plateau where she can help others rise and thrive, but that simply doesn't do her story justice.

My guest, Jonathon Stalls, is the founder of Intrinsic Paths, and his feet have carried him on a mission to inspire the people he encounters. Jonathon encourages us to embrace an unhurried, meditative way of being that has the potential to heal on a very deep and personal level, in turn offering the tools required to repair the desperate fissures in this world we all share.

In this conversation with Wendy De Rosa, author of the new book "Becoming An Empowered Empath: How To Clear Energy, Set Boundaries & Embody Your Intuition," I for the very first time, have a guest that clearly and openly speaks about the reality of being an empath. Wendy offers helpful perspectives and strong guidance on how to enhance day-to-day living through empathetic gifts, while not being consumed by the onslaught of feelings that are often not our own. Through her school of Intuitive

12. August 2021
All the experiences of Kenneth's life have lead to his current passion, providing compassionate companionship and care to those facing the end of their lives, considering this to be the most vital social issue of our age. The hospice method that he presents brings patients, families, healthcare professionals, and faith communities together in unison to reduce the layers of suffering that occur during the sunset of life.

29. July 2021
Mickey is the CEO and President of Resource Management Services, a business that has been providing behavioral health services in Southwest Louisiana for over 25 years. Like most of us, Mickey is so much more than her official title, although after sitting with her, it is was very easy to see why she was called to service in her particular field.
