As we face the busy-ness of our everyday lives, we can often overlook our own needs. Many of us have been taught to put others before ourselves, and by the end of the day as we fall into bed, we may feel like there has been no time to spare for self-reflection, growth and healing.

Working with the ancient teachings of the wisdom traditions as well as mainstream psychological paradigms, we will work to heal the roots of emptiness and loneliness, or any other "–ness" that is holding us from living our true potential.

We will explore questions of purpose and fulfillment, both in worldly and spiritual arenas, while respecting each client's innate understanding of their own path and preferences. Offering private, couples, and family sessions, as well as a weekly discussion group and on-going workshops, Triple Transformations strives to bring more wholeness into the world, one heart at a time.

Be Willing to Commit 

Commitment isn’t easy, but it is required. For the life you really want, you must commit. I see the impact of commitment on the people I work with. For years, they say they want something, a new job, a better relationship with their kids, a happier marriage. Yet when it comes time to commit to their changes required, they get scared.

Success and your past

Freedom of speech, anyone?

Has freedom of speech been confused over the years for just saying what we want?

At dictionary.com the word speech is defined as power of speaking and oral communication.

Communication…does that just mean talking? Putting down others for their beliefs?

I don’t profess to be a master of this language. I started with English as being my second language and it has turned into my “first and a half” language.

But with all the anger out there with what others are saying and how they are challenging our beliefs, I wonder if we all have lost the capacity to think and listen.  You know the other parts of communication that we seem to have hidden away.  We let others think for us and we make it our belief and we go talking away at our points.  And when the unfortunate incident of running into someone who does not agree with our beliefs, we insult them instead of engaging with them and understanding their point-of-view.

Understanding, I said, not acceptance, not submission…

Where is the thinking gone?  Where is the listening gone?

I admit I have a lot to work on myself.  The old programming kicks in from time to time and I become the venom that only adds fuel to the fire instead of trying to work with the fire.

When an information is fed to us…can we think if that information is really something that we believe?  Truly believe?  And if it is, fine.  Believe it with the intensity that suits you but leave the door open to listen and help others understand your beliefs rather than just hurling insults.  And leave that door open to continue thinking?

Because it is the thinking that has given us the greatest innovations. Innovations in technology, spirituality, communities have all come because we chose to find a better way.

And whether its Democrat or Republican, Conservative or Liberal, Muslim or Christian…there is a better way.  I am searching for it and I know you are too…I pray that we find it.  And I also pray that I have the strength to listen to you.

Poor is the pupil who does not surpass his master.
Man should forget his anger before he lies down to sleep.

Mahatma Gandhi

On the plains of hesitation lie the blackened bones of countless millions, who at the dawn of victory sat down to rest, and while resting, died.

Sam Ewing

The doors of wisdom are never shut.

Benjamin Franklin

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.
