There’s Plenty of Room in the Sandbox

It just so happens that Ursula I get asked a lot about authors, books, and yes, other programs dealing with neuroscience and coaching. Over the years, we’ve worked to be both thoughtful and gracious in our response, even though the little girl inside is sometimes screaming “Why are you asking about OTHER stuff??? Why don’t […]

Neuroplasticity, Politeness and Our Habitual Response

  An interesting thing happened to me on my way home from a recent trip. I was in the Oslo airport, repacking my things after going through security. An older man, quite rotund, seemed to be positioning himself as close to me as he could. When I moved to create a bit of distance, he […]

Trust Your Own Goodness

Hat’s off to all of us who are authentically on the growth and development journey. We become adept at acknowledging our dark sides, asking for feedback, and exploring all the shadows of our complicated souls. We know we are works in progress with much yet to learn and transform.

Life Purpose: elusive or obvious?

I’ve knocked around the coaching world for nigh-on 15 years now, and, as such, have taught many classes on life purpose, taken people through endless guided visualizations, had numerous coaching sessions on the topic where we created cumbrous statements rich with metaphor, and even researched where it might live in the brain.

The Power of…. Hopelessness?

This is a strange blog to write, and you’re really going to have to bear with us here as we explain, but lately Ursula and I have been playing in the energy field of Hopelessness, and finding it, well, liberating. At BEabove, we hold that each energy field of the Seven Levels of Effectiveness has […]

The Dog in the Yard

We don’t see things as they are. We see them as we are.  ~The Talmud We have a saying at BEabove about the Seven Levels of Effectiveness: deceptively simple, endlessly complex. We’re constantly discovering new and interesting aspects to how the energy fields show themselves. One of my favorites is the whole arena of being a nice person. […]

Embrace the Blessing–Now

Recently at BEabove we’ve encountered some people who have been unfair, unreasonable and ultimately very difficult to tolerate, much less love. So we’ve worked, been coached, used our many tools, processed and pondered, and lo and behold, uncovered the blessing. Every time.
